That's normal if u just stopped hormonal bc. At least for me it is. I use always. I loved stayfree until it caused an allegic reaction a few yrs back. I don't wear tampons.

Welcome!

Yes, that can be normal since you've just stopped taking birth control.  However, if you're soaking more than a pad an hour you might want to check with your doctor.

My daughter has very heavy periods and uses overnight pads 24/7 during that time.

The new Always Infinity pads are wonderful, super absorbant and also super thin.

Your body is probably just regulating itself now that you arent on BC anymore... I use a softcup on my period though.
