Leaking blood with pad and tampon
Posted on: 07/06/2009
Why is it that every type of pad or tampon I use blood comes out?
I assume you mean that you leak and blood gets out around the tampon or pad, which is messy and can be embarrassing. First off I wonder if you are changing them frequently enough - before they get full and then leak. Second, you might want to buy the overnight pads because they are more absorbant, and super tampons, but they may not fit very well. If you have to change a pad or tampon more than every hour, you need to talk to your doctor about how heavily you bleed. Good luck!
