    I have the same problem and personally I’m ok with both pads and tampons, I use both at the same time so I can go a normal amount of time without staining, it seems weird but it’s helpful af when I’m in classes. Plus anxiety levels went down like... 35%

    Hope that helps :)

    Just shove a few strong kotex in there to absorb your heavy days. Or, get pregnant.

    They are designed to catch blood leaving the vagina.  Seems like a pretty good comparison to a regular pad:)

    Yes you can use maternity pads for heavy periods.

    However, if you are needing this level of protection then something is wrong and needs to be investigated.

    Please arrange to get medical advice.

    There is nothing wrong with trying them. 

    There is no reason you can't use them.  Typically, they are longer than a normal pad and usually more absorbent.  I am not familiar with the exact one you listed, but try it and see if it works for you.

    You could also try "nighttime" pads even during the day.  Those are also typically longer and more absorbent.

    Consider asking to go on birth control.  It can make your periods shorter and lighter.
