How often should I change my tampon?

Our Answer

You will get to know your regular flow with more practice, but changing it more often is always better!

With tampons, changing it every 4-8 is recommended. This will prevent leakage but also Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS), which is a disease caused by the build up of bacteria. Wearing a tampon for too long is one way to develop TSS. Although it's rare (1 in 100,000 people), TSS is still something to take seriously.

For pads, it's also good practice, and more comfortable for you, to change it for a new one every several hours. Especially if you're soaking through it often. You'll likely need to change your pad 3-4 times a day during your period.
