Look for improvement on a weekly basis, not day to day.
Don't use the pad whenever you think you can go without it.
Wear the quick-dry polyester underwear for any drips. Keep a spare nearby.
Drink water, avoid caffeine and soft drinks. Fruit juice was OK for me. Make sure to use the bathroom before being away from one for 15 minutes or more.
Get dry soon,
