I need to know whether there is any side effect of using sanitary pads during periods?

No side effect. Side effect occurs only if don't change pads.
Hello- no, sanitary pads maintain proper hygiene during periods, but you should take precautions while changing the pad. Don't over use a pad, it will lead to vaginal infections.
