This actually varies throughout your cycle, with the heaviest blood flow usually occurring at the start of your period. We suggest you change your tampon absorbency to match the heaviness of your flow to ensure you’re well protected throughout.
Here’s an example of what your period flow may look like.
As you can see, your period flow can differ from day to day and if you use tampons, you may need to use different sizes for each stage of your period.
Some women may use up to 3 different tampon absorbencies during their period.
But this is not true for everyone and you'll have to work out your own period pattern.
Lil-Lets have the widest range of tampon absorbencies in the UK so even if you have a very heavy period you will find a product that is right for you.
