Hi, I have a problem. I am getting my second period soon so I want to wear something to prepare. I really like using tampons but you can’t when you’re not on your period, and pads are very, very, very uncomfortable. I really need help.

You’re right, you shouldn’t use tampons when you are not bleeding; however, instead of using thick pads, you could opt for wearing a thin, small panty shield. As you have more periods, you will likely have symptoms a few days before your period actually arrives such as breast tenderness and/or mild cramps so you can plan to use a panty shield then rather than every day. When choosing panty shields, select unscented and/or natural products.​​
