Pads or tampons??

Heyy girls! So i usually use pads when i have my period but because of my heavy AF i have to use the big fat ass pads & yall know that that can be unconfortable to wear all day so today for the first time i tried a tampon... I really liked bcause u literally feel like u dont have ur period and u dont have to deal with that big pad but some people were telling me that tampons usually gives infections... Is that trueee??? Wich one yall preferd? 🤔🤔🤔🤔
