Packaged Interlabial Article

June 30, 2009

A packaged absorbent article was recently patented. It comprises a package with a first end, a second end and package sides extending from the first end to the second end. The first end is folded along a first fold axis toward the second end such that the package sides fold over toward an inner major surface to form a pouch with pouch sides. The second end is folded along a second fold axis toward the pouch to form a flap. An absorbent article comprises a fluid permeable cover located over an absorbent member and the article is folded along a longitudinal axis. The folded absorbent article is located in the pouch with the fluid permeable cover adjacent to the inner major surface. The longitudinal axis of the absorbent article is parallel with first and second ends of the package. The flap engages at least a portion of the pouch. The absorbent article also comprises an article tab extending from a longitudinal edge. At least a portion of the article tab protrudes from the pouch past the first end.
