  • Wear a heavy duty tampon and heavy duty maxipad. It might be worth it, for your peace of mind to use one of those adult diapers- I think they have them that look like underpants?

  • I'd wear a tampon and a pad, and be sure to go to the restroom frequently to make sure everything is ok.

  • I'm not a fan of pads... Do you have something against tampons? If not, maybe you can double up, and make sure to change them frequently. A 7 day period is pretty long, surely by Saturday the flow won't be at its heaviest? But if you use both a pad and a tampon, and make sure to check every couple of hours, you should be fine!

  • Have you ever worn tampons. I bleed heavily also and I always wear the super tampons and a large pad. Also you could maybe wear a couple extra pairs of panties.

  • waer a big tampon and a maxi pad. And bring some extra tampons and pads to go to the bathroom and change it often.

  • pads arent going to help unless u want to change them every hour at ur ball. ur best bet is a super tampon and a small pad/liner. if u go to walmart or something there are these tampons called the U they dont take up that much room in ur purse cuz of small sizes and they have pads and liners that are tiny as well. good luck.

  • I agree with the first PP. Wear a heavy duty tampon, and a couple of large, thick, winged pads. Good luck.
