Tampons, pads and liners: what’s the best option to keep you feeling comfortable during that time of the month? Well, it’s totally up to you. You can try using tampons, pads or liners on their own, or a mixture of all three for the ultimate protection. Tampons are worn on the inside of your body, while pads and liners are worn on the outside of your body. Your choice is all about what will make you feel most comfortable and how heavy your flow is during that time of the month.
