Sparrow82 6 years I a product called a menstrual cup. You insert it and it holds (not absorbs) twice as much as a super plus absorbency tampon. No string, no cotton ripping your insides more protection no TSS issues against leakage and no bunched up pad. These things are awesome. Allytta 8 years tampons aren't as healthy as always (pads), these are the only one I use since i had periods. tampons are for swimmingpool or sea-swimming days only. t0xxic 8 years tampons during the day and pads at night.... I think thats what I did its been so long lol 35 more days I wont be saying that though. cravinsugar 8 years I'm with fluffy bomb. When I do have to wear a pantiliner I hate it....constantly feel it and am miserable. As for making my cramps worse...if that is true I will take it as a trade off... I'm all in. DesignRchic 8 years yea WHIP! BTW Jenn and tra, I'll have to do a little investigating on the whole cramp and tampon thing. It doesn't make sense to me because cramps are muscle contractions and I don't know where the tampon fits into this...hmm. If I find anything out, I'll let you ladies know. WhatTheFrockBlog 8 years I do the same exact thing, DRC! jennifer76 8 years Ha ha ha!! Thanks DesignRchic. :oops: DesignRchic 8 years hey jen, it's all good. Here's my tell all: I do the tampon plus thong pany-liner, I love them! They're so thin and they fit thongs perfectly. :OOPS: jennifer76 8 years They make mine worse too! I wasn't sure if I was just imagining it, but when the cramps get too bad, I have to go with a maxi instead. :oops: I can't believe I just posted that. :oops: DStirk 8 years tampons make your cramps worse? that is very interesting... i didnt know they did that. does this happen to a lot of people?! tra 8 years I'd love to be able to use tampons however, as a result of them making my already unbearable cramps even worse, my OB/GYN won't allow me to use them. My preference would be tampons but in reality it's pads...the pain meds don't help. purplesugar 8 years wasn't this poll posted by Fab a few days ago? stone_soup 8 years Haven't had the chance to use tampons. ______________________________________________ I must say, adolescence is one hell of a ride! fluffy-bomb 8 years Tampons only, thank you. I grew out of diapers as a baby; I do not want to feel like I'm wearing one as an adult! WhatTheFrockBlog 8 years The ol' trusty combo works wonders for me! audreystar 8 years tampons on most days but pads on really light days. ElectricLadyland 8 years Shouldn't this poll be in Health?
