Tampons vs Pads - Which is better?
I know some women who use tampons, others who use pads... And then some who use both.

I do a mix of both using tampons at the start of my period and then as it gets lighter, I switch to pantyliners. I can't wear full pads, they shift too much and I can feel comfortable wearing them no matter how thin they can be. My flow is also rather heavy for 2 days and the few times I had to use pads, I had leaks and accidents. So for me, tampons are my choice.
Thanks so much for sharing your experience with period products. If you're ever curious to try some sustainable alternatives to tampons and pads, feel free to check out our article about 5 sustainable menstrual products: https://vulvani.com/en/zero-waste-menstr...l-products
I use tampons and panty-liners. I don't have a very heavy cycle so I only use tampons for 1 or 2 days and then panty-liners for the remaining days. My cycle is usually 4 days, sometimes 3, and sometimes 5. I think this depends on my diet. I tend to have a longer one when I am not going "number two" as often. lol
I have tried using pads and end up with a mess. I can use them for sleeping and near the end of my cycle without an issue but for the first 2 days, I use tampons. I can't seem to avoid this. I think I have a very irregular flow so I never know what to expect those first two days!
I used pads when I first started my cycle. My mother did not want me to use tampons. So I didn't use them until I was in my twenties. From there, I have only stuck with tampons and using pantie liners or folded paper towels on lighter days.
I used tampons to start and then switched to pads and liners after realizing the health risks.

From there I tried free bleeding which did not work for me. I opted to try a menstrual cup and once I got used to it, I kept using it. I have been using it now for 3 years.
