Dear BeingGirl Experts,
Hey, I have this like discharge in my undies, and I play basketball (when I play sports I get more). I use panty liners, so I don't ruin my undies. However, it gets annoying when I am playing sports. Can I use a tampon for that? (I have already started my period.)
Do not use tampons for discharge. Tampons are only for use when you are having your period. If you wear them when you are not menstruating, the tampon will absorb the normal moisture of your vagina. This puts you at a higher risk for Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS).
You will need to continue to use the pantiliner to absorb your daily vaginal discharge.
Hope this is helpful,
Your BeingGirl Experts
