PRE-PERIOD
Oh no, PMS. Headaches, bloating, irritability and teariness all make their presence felt. Lucky you if you're one of the few who don't seem to suffer at all! Wear a panty liner on these days just in case your period makes an early appearance.
HEAVIEST FLOW
Ok, here we go. This is when your period and your cycle starts. Bleeding begins as your womb lining is shed. Emotionally, you'll start feeling more relaxed than you have for days as your hormone levels drop. The good news? No more PMS for 28 days.
POST-PERIOD

If your bleeding hasn’t stopped it should at least have become lighter. Periods can last from three to eight days, but five or six is average. Carry tampons or panty liners with you just in case.

PEAK OVULATION

Been having slight cramps in the lower abdomen? This lets you know that your body was preparing to release an egg. You're ovulating, so you're very fertile. But remember: you need to use contraception all month long if you're having sex.

Does your period have an unusually light flow or a very short duration of blood loss?

Causes of light flow may vary: you might experience light flow towards the end of your period, and it is not uncommon for girls who are just beginning to menstruate to
experience light periods overall. You can check when your period is about to end with our period calculator so that you know when to have the right product on hand.
For very light to light flow we recommend TAMPAX Compak Lites applicator tampons - our best tampons for very light to light flow absorbency.
