Heavy periods on the first day... adult content

I have a VERY heavy flow on the first 20-24 hours of my period. I started using 2 tampons at once to prevent issues. I used a super plus and a regular and change them regularly prevent leaks. They are not uncomfortable this way. Can't even tell the difference. My friend said I was risking toxic shock but putting in two tampons at a time... but I change them regularly... hour and a half to two hours. Three hours MAX if I have a pad on too. Is it true do you think? Is it risky to wear two?

  • To have to use two tampons and change them every hour and a half to two hours is not normal. What does your doctor say about this? Do you have cysts?

  • A friend of mine had an abortion and they gave her two tampons at a time afterward. So it's not unheard of.
    And ladies- the girth of your husbands penis is ( at least I hope, for your sake ) larger than two super tampons! They'll fit!

  • Apparently it isn't risky, I can't see it being comfortable though.

  • I told them I was really heavy on the first day and they said that was normal for some women. I did not ask them about my tampon use.

  • How did you fit a baby out your vagina? ;) It's stretchy. It works. I put the applicators in side by side and insert them at the same time so they go right in next to each other.

  • wasn't being a smart ass- just pointing out how stretchy it really is. Didn't think she was thinking about it that way.

  • loosey goosey... use and ultra tampon and a maxi pad, change both as needed. i have very heavy flows, and have squeezed 2 children out of my vagina, there is no way 2 tampons are going to fit comfortably
