Pads or tampons: How do you choose?
Some women keep different kinds and sizes on hand for various situations. For example, they use panty liners for every day discharge or spotting, Ultra Thin pads on days when they have a small amount of bleeding, tampons for sports or swimming and larger Maxi pads when they have heavier bleeding or overnight when they are asleep.
Whatever product you choose, remember to change it regularly. Leaving any product in place for a long time allows bacteria to grow and can cause infection.
