Yes, most women who use tampons will use pads or liners as back-up because tampons leak suddenly when full. When using tampons you should also alternate with pads and use pads with light flow. If you want to avoid using both tampons and pads you may want to consider using menstrual cups that can be worn at any time and don't leak like tampons do.

Yes, it's common. A lot of women wear tampons and a panty liner or a thin pad to prevent "accidents" during the heaviest part of their period. Saves a lot of embarrassment.

Can you wear a tampon to a water park?

Yes, you can wear a tampon to the water park as long as your flow is heavy enough for a tampon. You can also wear options such as menstrual cups and softcups, these can be worn even with light flow and for up to 12 hours so a much better option. If you do wear tampons be sure to time it so you can insert a fresh tampon just before going in the water, and you may need to insert a fresh tampon when you get out.
