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.

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.

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.

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.

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:

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:

tampons make your cramps worse? that is very interesting... i didnt know they did that. does this happen to a lot of people?!

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.

Haven't had the chance to use tampons. ______________________________________________ I must say, adolescence is one hell of a ride!

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!
