Our expert says:
Tampons absorb the blood as it comes out of the cervix, whereas pads need the blood to get all the way down the vagina, which can take several hours especially att he end when there is not much bleeding. Thus the period appears to last a shorter time with tampons, but is actually the same amount of bleeding. Tampons will not affect your cycle.
