general question

First off: I know that I am not pregnant but still would like to know this answer! If a woman is pregnant and has her period during or even throughout the pregnancy, is she okay to use tampons or is it better to use pads?

  • Pregnant women shouldn't use tampons because of the risk of infection. Also just for me, if I'm pregnant and bleeding, I'd want to monitor it closely and that's easier with a pad.
