When it comes to exercise, swimming, and certain outfits and many other reasons, some of us prefer the use of tampons. When picking out tampons for the first time, have a sense of what your flow is like during your cycle. It’s very crucial that your tampon does not give you any pain or discomfort once it’s fully inserted.
Remember, you should only be changing your tampon every 4-6 hours. But if you find yourself changing it more often, you should consider going up a size. Tampons can come in variety packs with different sizes for different times during your cycles. Use regular to light tampon sizes for a lighter or spotting flow and use super sizes when your flow is heavier.
Ahh, the wonderful world of pads. What’s great about pads is that they accommodate many shapes and sizes for all types of menstrual cycles. From everyday panty-liners to overnight pads. These can give you a peace of mind no matter what your cycle brings that month.
There are also an array of pad styles for your type of comfort preference. From pads with built-in wings to thong styles, take the time to find certain styles, sizes, and brands that bring you comfort and protection.
