Discharge After Period

Hi BeingGirl Experts,

Would I be able to use a tampon for normal discharge, not only for menstrual fluid?




Dear Sparky,

Tampons should not be used for absorbing vaginal discharge. Tampons are designed for menstrual protection only. When inserted into a vagina where there is no menstrual fluid, the tampon absorbs too much moisture from the walls of the vagina, changing the environment. This change may put you at a higher risk for toxic shock syndrome. If you want to protect your underwear from daily discharge, use a pantiliner.


Hope this is helpful,

Your BeingGirl Experts
