Sanitary pads vs tampons: Which one to use?

Access to safe sanitary materials is crucial to ensure menstrual health. The world has progressed beyond our imagination. Unfortunately, certain issues are still not openly discussed which leads to a lack of awareness among the less privileged. Menstruation is a normal and healthy part of every woman’s life, provided they are armed with enough knowledge to manage their periods. Knowing what products to use during periods is important in managing your menstrual cycles effectively. 


This article will shed light on two of the most used menstrual products and their benefits and disadvantages. 


What are sanitary pads?


Sanitary pads are one of the most common menstrual hygiene products women use. For the uninitiated, sanitary pads are absorbent pads meant to absorb the menstrual blood. Sanitary pads come with an adhesive at the back which can be stuck to panties. They come in a variety of sizes. There are short ones and long ones to select from depending on your flow. If you have a heavy flow, you can choose pads in XL sizes. There are ultra-thin pads designed for light flow days. You can use these pads when you just want a small layer of protection to prevent the risk of spotting on your outer garments. There are pads designed for overnight use as well.


From regular pads to pads that cater to your unique menstrual needs, you will find a wide variety available in retail stores and online. 


Besides, there are scented pads available in the market that exude a pleasant fragrance. However, scented pads must be used with caution. Scented pads contain chemicals that disturb the natural pH balance and cause irritation and allergic reactions. 


What is a tampon?


How to use tampons? Tampons are little plugs of cotton that are inserted inside the vagina. While sanitary pads are worn externally, tampons are worn inside. Tampons are small enough to fit in a tiny pocket. They must be changed every 4 to 8 hours. One of the benefits of tampons is they are suitable to be worn while swimming as they can absorb menstrual flow without becoming waterlogged.


Like pads, tampons too come in different absorbency levels, allowing women to choose the right one for their flow. They are discreet and not visible when worn properly. However, TTS is one of the risks associated with wearing tampons. TTS or Toxic Shock Syndrome is a condition where you are affected by bacterial infections. Not changing tampons regularly is responsible for this condition. 


Tampons vs pad: What to pick?


Sanitary pads are a more comfortable option if you just started getting your periods. Most women find it uncomfortable to use tampons in the initial phases of menstruation. However, sanitary pads are not suitable if you are involved in activities like swimming. The water might get absorbed into the pads, making it messy.  


It's up to you to decide whether you want to use tampons or sanitary pads. Try both if you want to the experience the benefits and disadvantages yourself. Whatever product you use, ensure they are safe, hygienic and does no harm to your body. Apart from tampons and sanitary pads, there are other products like menstrual cups too. Choose one that is most comfortable for you and ensure you are using it the right way.
