During critical days, women can use various intimate hygiene products designed to absorb menstrual flow. Some of them are inserted into the vagina, others are glued to the underwear. To figure out what's better, tampons or pads, and choose the appropriate option, you need to explore all their advantages and disadvantages.

Gaskets and tampons perform the same tasks - absorb menstrual flow and prevent leakage. In addition, they allow the skin to breathe.

However, pads are different from tampons. These intimate hygiene products are not inserted into the vagina. They simply stick to the underwear. A woman does not feel discomfort, and critical days are much easier due to this.

There are certain advantages and disadvantages of different types of pads that must be taken into account when choosing a hygiene product.

Gaskets have a lot of advantages. Among the main are the following:

  • Available in a wide range of configurations and sizes.
  • simple and easy to use
  • can be applied at night,
  • characterized by a good ability to absorb menstruation,
  • different practicality. Each product is wrapped in a separate envelope, there is no need to constantly carry around the entire package,
  • after use they are rolled up and imperceptibly thrown away,
  • mask the smell of menstrual bleeding,
  • have low cost
  • do not hold down movements and prevent course.

No matter how big the list of advantages of these products, they have disadvantages:

  • when wearing too narrow clothes, the contours of the pads become noticeable,
  • quite often when using this hygienic accessory a greenhouse effect appears,
  • when the gasket interacts with the air, an unpleasant smell begins to be felt,
  • an allergic reaction to the gasket is possible when using products with aromatic additives,
  • in case of an incorrectly chosen product, leakage and staining on clothing is possible,
  • Can not be used when visiting the pool.

To understand what is best to use, tampons or pads, you need to consider that modern hygiene products have both advantages and disadvantages. Only after a careful study of them can you choose your own products.

Many women are of the opinion that it is better to use tampons instead of pads. This is due to the fact that these intimate hygiene products have several advantages:

  • invisible under clothes
  • do not leak
  • the skin is not irritated,
  • You can choose a tampon with an applicator to ensure its proper insertion,
  • allowed to visit the pool with a tampon. There is only one limitation - you need to be no more than twenty minutes in the water, immediately after the release you need to replace the hygiene item.

The disadvantages of tampons are as follows:

  • the process of introducing hygiene at first causes difficulties
  • it is possible the flow during excessively active movements,
  • the product is able to dry the mucous with constant use. For this reason, there is a risk of infection of the genital organs,
  • due to the restriction of oxygen access, a favorable environment for the development of bacteria is created,
  • It is not recommended to use tampons at night,
  • need to be replaced every 2-3 hours
  • There is a risk of toxic shock.

Contraindications

In certain situations, the use of a tampon is strongly discouraged. In the presence of female inflammatory diseases - a categorical ban. Violation of this requirement will lead to serious complications. In addition, there are other contraindications:

  • allergic reaction to the components of hygienic accessories,
  • the use of local drugs in the treatment of vaginal pathologies (candles, pills, ointments),
  • diseases of the genitourinary system of different nature,
  • the first three months after delivery,
  • dry vaginal mucosa.

To say unequivocally that it is better to use, pads or tampons, for girls who have not yet had any experience of intimacy, it is impossible. Nevertheless, manufacturers claim that such tools are absolutely safe for virgins.

Small tampon sizes are produced, ensuring a minimal risk of damage to the hymen. Therefore, this contraindication is considered conditional. The decision on the use of modern sanitary products of the weaker sex are taken independently.

There is no consensus about what is best, a tampon or a lining, among both doctors and women. Each product has both advantages and disadvantages.

The disadvantage of using tampons lies primarily in the fact that they are replaced every 2-3 hours. With hygienic outdoor products, it is not possible to visit the beach or the pool. Therefore, during critical days, it is recommended to use both types of products: gaskets are used at night, at home and in everyday life, and tampons are inserted if necessary.

tampons, maybe, it doesn’t feel that nasty feeling of estrus and the constant “aaaa, have I leaked.”

Gaskets. I think that "plugging" the natural outflow of blood is harmful. Tampons - only in case of sea / pool / fitted dress.

I like tampons more, I buy Kotex. I use pads only at night.

Only use tampons! Change every 3 hours and no problem. You can change even when there is no opportunity to take a shower, everything is clean and dry! And laying not only that the thought "leaked-not leaked" so still terribly unpleasant sensations "diapers", no matter how thin the gasket was.

and use tampons and gaskets
first couple of days finally

I alternate. That irritation from gaskets terrible, no matter how they were breathing and thin. That tampon insert (pardon) the problem, "there" all of the horror is compressed. To just one thing - this I have never had. Sometimes tampons are better, sometimes - pads.

as if with tampons can not leak

Only pads, because tampons are very awful to put out, discomfort, brr

pads :) with tampons somehow uncomfortable

23, 10 seconds "brrr" but then changed and went clean and dry on. And how can you change the gasket without a bidet / shower so that everything is clean? One was pulled out and put another, and you continue TAM further. until you get to the house to wash. This is certainly brrrr, and this is precisely the smell that comes from, only the "mistress of the smell" themselves does not smell it.

25, it turns out, until they invented the tampons all went stinky ?! ))))))))

25. Straight away such details, Guest =) The smell is felt, if you only bury your nose in it, and you have some kind of hike.

In connection with the features of my body I use at the same time. Because there are bleeding, do not shut up. You didn’t see the gaskets like that. Sometimes in 10 minutes a tampon and a lining through.

tampons, laying at night, but this is only on the first day, and then only tampons.

and with gaskets I am constantly haunted by the thought that it is noticeable! Therefore, I will not return to the gaskets for sure! I use tampons even at night, I just set an alarm clock and wake up once a night to change it.

32, and what's the big deal? If you have a gasket at night, will you continue to sleep, or will you still change and change it? it's not difficult for me to wake up for 5 minutes, change everything and go on sleeping :))))

30, and tried to use wet wipes, did not find such ones that do not leave an unpleasant feeling of "stickiness"

Guest, with bzikom about gaskets - you directly raise the topic rating.
I've never seen such confused.
And yet, around me, apparently, everyone uses tampons, since no one stinks

even if I live less for 7 years, I will still use the day only with tampons, and sometimes at night, because gaskets are not convenient

usually pads, but sometimes with some clothes (on occasion) - tampons.

until the tampons were invented, there were no pads either, calm down, they all smelled as pretty, with washed cotton in their underpants

but I like tampons more .. from the gasket you really walk with your thoughts leaking-not leaking, even if the “super-wings” plus everything still permanently there, not breathing, especially in the hot season, plus I always feel the gasket, and the tampon is very seldom

pads, because with the blood come out pieces of the endometrium, and the tampon somehow absorbs more liquid

as if with tampons can not leak

I hate gaskets, I have the feeling that you are sitting in a bloody swamp, as if advertising did not say that "the gasket lets in liquid, but does not let it out", it is still wet and sticky from bleeding - and it all rubs against the skin. Muck Well, just uncomfortable, you feel it all the time. for many years I have only been using tampons, day and night.

I have the opposite, with a tampon all the time feeling that now here is the leak. And this often happens, I don’t know, somehow it’s wrong to see it there. And with the gasket reliably, you feel how much it “flows” and when it is time to change, and now the gaskets are such that the FIG will leak. I feel myself confidently with her for 100, so at the current of the gasket, and tampons at home - at any time you can go to the bath and not so bad if the "accident" happens)).

I like tampons more, the pad rubs me, everything starts to sweep, blood smears on the skin. And the tampon absorbs inside, and outside everything is clean and dry. I feel like with a tampon as if there are no periods at all. Therefore, I only use gaskets at night. When choosing gaskets, the main criterion is thickness (thick in my opinion - a relic of the past) and the presence of wings. I buy only ultra-thin with wings, the brand does not really matter. And when choosing a tampon-absorbability is good and ease of administration. In this sense, the applicator is more suitable for me.

Anyone who uses tampons and ultra-thin pads - you are just lucky, you do not know what a heavy monthly period is, under which your funds do not save! I, for example, on days 2 and 3, have the most super thick pad for 2 hours!

for all 13 years of the month I use only gaskets. I never tried tampons! :)
I agree with many .. that the tampon is only in emergency cases, in fact they are harmful.

Well, and can someone bring confirmed information that tampons are harmful? Not because Masha said that, but more or less serious articles? I'm not going to look for myself, just everyone is so sure of this that it is even funny.
In +30 laying, of course, better. )

Anyone who uses tampons and ultra-thin pads - you are just lucky, you do not know what a heavy monthly period is, under which your funds do not save! I, for example, on days 2 and 3, have the most super thick pad for 2 hours!

What you need to know about menstruation

Menstruation is bleeding that begins if conception did not occur in the current month. The first day of menstruation, as a rule, is characterized by minor bleeding, but on day 2-3 it becomes stronger, starting to decrease gradually by 5-6 days. The duration of bleeding for each woman may be different, in most cases from 3 to 7 days. The volume of blood loss is about 50-100 ml.

During the rejection of the uterine mucosa, which is preparing to receive an egg, if it had fertilized with a sperm cell, it is rhythmically reduced. Often women may not feel this, but many of the fair sex may feel pain in the lower abdomen with each uterine contraction. If the uterus has an abnormal location, the woman may feel heaviness in the lower abdomen, aches in the lower back.

Menstrual blood has no unpleasant smell. The stench appears when it decomposes in the air. That is why you need to carefully select hygiene products during menstruation. It may be tampons or pads.

Advantages and disadvantages of gaskets

Hygienic means is outside, it is attached to the underwear with an adhesive strip or special wings. The tool absorbs menstrual blood when it leaves the vagina.

The main advantages of gaskets include:

  • simplicity and ease of use
  • excellent absorbability of menstrual flow, which ensures cleanliness of clothes and clothes, even during heavy bleeding,
  • each gasket is individually wrapped, making it hygienic,
  • can be purchased as packaging, and individually.

  • the outlines of the pads are noticeable if you put on tight clothes,
  • sometimes there is a feeling of discomfort, restrains movement, if the hygiene product is chosen incorrectly,
  • can not be thrown into the toilet,
  • when interacting with air there is an unpleasant smell.

Preferring this means of intimate hygiene on critical days, some recommendations will help in the selection and use:

  1. Choose only quality gaskets from proven manufacturers.
  2. Hygiene products should be from natural materials (cotton wool, cellulose), well pass air.
  3. It is necessary to change the gasket at least once every 3-4 hours or as it is filled, which will protect the laundry and clothes.
  4. It is better not to use flavored products on critical days, they can provoke skin irritation.
  5. It is better not to use gaskets with a synthetic shell, due to the greenhouse effect, which, in turn, contributes to the development of bacteria and fungi.
  6. In case of heavy bleeding it is better to use gaskets with high absorbency (the largest number of droplets on the package).
  7. For nights it is recommended to use special night pads, which are thicker and longer than usual.
  8. In the last days of menstruation, when the bleeding subsides, you can get by with daily pads.
  9. In no case should you throw the used hygiene products into the toilet, it will just be clogged.

Tampons: advantages and disadvantages

Unlike pads, tampons are inside the body, only a rope that is clean and dry is left outside. This hygienic tool is a small cushion, which, after insertion into the vagina, ensures the absorption of menstrual blood.

The main advantages of tampons:

  • convenience and ease of use
  • do not limit the actions and choice of clothes,
  • not visible, even if you wear a tight skirt or pants.

  • When first introduced, difficulties may arise.
  • improper administration gives a feeling of discomfort, a feeling of a foreign body inside,
  • permanent use can cause dryness of the vaginal mucosa, which opens the way for infectious agents,
  • need to be changed often
  • women are afraid that the tampon may be lost inside their bodies, and girls are afraid of breaking the hymen when using such a hygiene product on critical days,
  • it is better not to use at night to give the opportunity to heal microcracks, which can be formed when the roller is inserted into the vagina,
  • in the presence of a number of diseases of the sexual sphere, in particular, the inflammatory process in the appendages, vaginal infection, vulvovaginitis, it is strictly prohibited to use it.

Recommendations for use:

  1. For girls who decide to use tampons, it is better to give preference to the smallest size. Introducing such a roller girl will be much easier, especially if she is still a virgin. And do not be afraid that the tampon can damage the hymen. This happens very rarely, because the hymen has a high elasticity and has a hole. The reason for the rupture of the hymen may be the wrong choice of the size of the tampon or rough and abrupt actions when introducing hygiene products into the vagina.
  2. There are tampons with and without applicator. Both the one and the second option has its advantages. It will be more convenient to someone to use with the applicator, and to someone - without it. Here everything is purely individual.
  3. A tampon should not remain in the vagina for more than 4-6 hours, even if it is not fully filled.
  4. The fact that the tool must be changed, said the ease of its extraction, if you pull the string.
  5. The tampon can be used while swimming. After that, the tool must be replaced with a new one to prevent microbes from entering the body from the water.
  6. Throw away used hygiene products can only be in the trash, which will prevent clogging of the sewer.

It is impossible to answer the question “What is better than tampons or pads?” Unequivocally. Every woman of the fair sex today has the opportunity to choose for themselves such hygiene products with which she will feel most comfortable in the days of menstrual bleeding. And the manufacturers made sure that this choice was really wide. But despite this, one should not be tempted by the cheap cost, because the quality of such products is not always the highest. Personal hygiene products, gaskets, or tampons, must be of the highest quality, because they are in direct contact with the intimate position of a woman.

Advantages and disadvantages of gaskets

Pads well absorb bloody discharge inherent in menstruation and placed on linen. And this is considered their main advantage when compared with tampons. Modern hygiene products reliably protect linen from blood stains and provide skin breathing. There is no discomfort with high-quality hygiene, and the period of menstruation is much easier.

  • perfectly absorb, prevent leakage on linen,
  • do not contribute to the appearance of irritations, scuffs,
  • in their use, the occurrence of toxic shock syndrome is excluded,
  • it is allowed to use at any age from 10 years.

External protection is not suitable for every woman, for some such a solution is unacceptable or not suitable for certain cases.

  • Do not use pads on the beach, in the pool,
  • wear when wearing them tight or too open clothes,
  • under certain conditions, blood can leak and soil linen, skin, clothes.

Features of tampons

The main disadvantage of gaskets is their external location. Whereas tampons are placed inside the body of a woman. Being in the vagina, the tampon does not give the possibility of monthly blood to come out and absorbs it into itself. This hygiene product is inserted into the vagina, which implies close contact with the mucous membranes and vessels. Because used tampons must be of impeccable quality.

  • reliable protection,
  • invisible from the outside, which allows you to wear any clothes during menstruation,
  • you can attend workouts, including the pool,
  • interferes with flow in any position and regardless of the activity of the girl,
  • there is no smell of monthly discharge,

However, tampons also have certain disadvantages, viz.

  • It is not advisable to choose tampons until the cycle is stabilized,
  • carefully girls who have not yet had sexual intercourse,
  • with the inaccurate introduction of tampons can injure the genitals.

When selecting tampons, remember the following rules.

  1. Hands before the introduction of intimate accessories should be well washed.
  2. The tampon should be changed no later than in three to four hours, without taking into account the degree of contamination.

What you should know

Hygienic accessories for internal protection necessarily include natural materials that ensure reliable absorption of liquid. Cotton wool, viscose or other fibers are tightly pressed and stitched. For more convenient use, tampons are shaped into a cylinder, and a strong but quite thin cord is securely fastened inside so that the hygiene product can be easily removed for replacement.

There are variants of tampons with an applicator that provide a comfortable introduction.

Hygiene products vary in size and degree of moisture absorption. When choosing the appropriate solution, you should always take into account the ability of the tampon to absorb monthly discharge. It is extremely important to ensure hygiene standards regarding cleanliness.

A tampon designed for a small amount of discharge will not provide adequate protection for heavy menstruation. A tool that can absorb a large amount will dry out the vaginal mucosa, which can lead to the suppression of normal microflora. Given the intensity of access, the following types of tampons:

  • mini - for the first and last days of menstruation,
  • normal - recommended for moderate or scanty discharge,
  • super - for secretions exceeding moderate periods in profusion,
  • super + - intended only for strong discharge.

You need to choose the type that meets individual needs, taking into account their own particularities of the monthly cycle, physiology. The main factor - the tampon should not cause inconvenience and leak.

It is important to remember: a tampon should not be inside for more than four hours, otherwise the hygiene product becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. It is not advisable to use tampons during sleep, as finding it inside for a long time can cause toxic shock syndrome.

Useful recommendations

If there are doubts about the use of tampons, it is better to consult in this matter with a gynecologist. It is necessary to choose a means of hygiene taking into account the peculiarities of their monthly days. The degree of profusion is known to every girl. For the first application, it is better to choose the size of the mini or normal. Such a tool is easier to introduce, especially for young girls.

Be sure to comply with the requirements of hygiene of the genitals, wash hands before you replace the intimate means.

It is necessary to select the agent, taking into account the intensity and volume of discharge - the more intense the monthly, the more the size of the agent is required. Gaskets or tampons should be of high quality, manufactured or natural materials, non-flavored and without dyes.

And the most important recommendation is to change any of the selected hygiene items at intervals of every three to four hours, regardless of the degree of contamination and the abundance of secretions.

Conclusion

Choose between tampons or pads is, relying only on their own feelings and preferences. However, some gynecologists have concluded that sanitary pads - a more acceptable option. Conducted in this area of ​​research, suggested that tampons can cause changes in the vaginal microflora. In turn, this may cause the reproduction of pathogenic microorganisms.

In addition, to prefer gaskets is still due to some factors.

  1. Internal hygiene products increase the risk of developing inflammatory diseases (if the tampon is inside for more than four hours, the ideal environment for the reproduction of fungi and bacteria will be provided in the vagina).
  2. The systematic use of intimate personal hygiene means that the mucosa in the vagina dries out, microdamages occur (the tampon absorbs not only monthly blood but also other mucous secretions).

There is another version that the use of tampons can cause toxic shock. In most cases, the state of health worsens after prolonged use of hygiene supplies, including at night. This syndrome is characterized by pain in the lower abdomen, fever, nausea, chills, an allergic rash and dizziness.

This condition is due to the fact that with a long time finding hygiene products increases the risk of reproduction in the vagina of harmful microorganisms, including staphylococcus, which becomes the source of the production of toxic substances that poison the body.

Consequently, according to the version of individual doctors, gaskets are more preferable for use. It is advisable to use tampons only when necessary, while adhering to a strict rule - replacement of the agent within three to four hours at the latest.
