I find tampons easier for a few reasons: they’re easier for me to wear with a thong, they make swimming on my period stress-free, and overall they feel more discreet than pads. However, this is a personal preference – if you don’t want to try tampons, no problem! If you try tampons and still prefer pads, there’s no problem with that either. There’s no ‘right’ answer when it comes to tampons vs. pads – both are perfectly safe.
