What sort of sanitary protection is it best to use pregnancy?

I’m not a great advocate of tampons even though the jury is out on whether they have an impact on fertility: one study conducted with over 2,000 women concluded

that women who used tampons had a lower rate of endometriosis (22) than those who did not, the theory being that tampons suck out debris rather than push it back into the uterus. However, others believe that tampons encourage a retrograde menstrual flow.

If you do want to use tampons, choose unbleached, 100 per cent cotton ones that allow free flow, and restrict their use to the times when the flow is heavy and the tampon is soaked through. Change them frequently to avoid any risk of developing the rare but serious toxic shock syndrome, caused when bacterial growth occurs in the vagina, and toxins are released into the bloodstream. Symptoms include a high fever, a rash, and low blood pressure.

On days when the flow is lighter use pads because tampons tend to absorb the vagina’s protective secretions and moisture too. For the same reason women who are pre-disposed to vaginal dryness, thrush, or cystitis are better off using pads. I would also suggest you use pads at night.
