When I was younger, I rarely went without double protection – meaning I wore a pad with a tampon for the same reason.Of course, the pads I wore back then came in one size and one size only- HUGE! Now-a-days there are many more choices, from overnighters to the almost-not-there, that you could use in conjunction with a tampon. I agree about the comfort factor of a tampon, but that means nothing if you are leaking. And if you find that you’re having to change a super absorbency tampon more than every two hours, you should check with your healthcare provider.
I have a really heavy flow and I bleed through a super plus tampon in 30-45 min. What I found is best for me is to always have pads, tampons and panty liners near by. When I'm on my heaviest days I usually wear a tampon and a pad and change my tampon as often as possible. Hope that helps" - Brookebay123
