Hi, I dont have a particularly heavy period and its fairly easy to cope with when going about daily life. But I am very athletic and I do martial arts. I find that my tampon often leaks with the high intensity exercise but i absolutely hate pads and I don't want to switch back to them. I also train around boys so I get really self concious and worry about leakage as it's embarrassing. do you have any suggestions as to which type of tampon I could use to protect me from leakage during sport?
For peace of mind you might like to wear a liner as well as the tampon. Liners are much thinner than a pad and there are even long liners available for added protection. Perhaps a super tampon may be useful for the more active times too.
