Is My Tampon Supposed to Bleed Through?



 
It's totally normal for a tampon to bleed through when it gets saturated with blood and needs to be changed. Generally, tampons should be changed every four-to-eight hours. If ya find that you need to change your tampon more frequently than that, it may be that you need a higher absorbency tampon. Tampon sizes refer to different absorbencies--light, regular and super. Are you using super? And it’s a good idea to use an underwear liner in addition to a tampon if you’re havin’ this problem—it can prevent any seepage through your clothes.
 
If you’ve already tried this, suggests Elizabeth Bobby, a nurse practitioner in OBGYN at About Women By Women, in Wellesley, Mass., “make sure that you’re pushing the tampon far enough into your vagina; when it’s correctly inserted, you won't see any cotton at your vaginal opening, you'll only see string. If you see only string, and the string is saturated with blood, you need to change your tampon.”
 
However, if you find that you need to change a super-absorbency tampon more than every four hours, Bobby recommends seeing your doctor. “There are common disorders that cause some people to bleed more easily than others, and sometimes—especially if you've never had surgery (in which case your surgeon would notice that your bleeding is hard to stop)—these can be diagnosed for the first time when a girl gets her period.”
