See answer: At 4y years old, i will assume your periods have been with you quite some timje. Depending on your flow during your cycle, you may neee more pads of more tampons the first day or so if the flow is heavier to prevent leakage, etc. If severe flow issues, discuss with your gyn and get an evaluation. Best wishes.
