    Pads

    I don't wear tampons. I wear pads. I've been wearing maxipads or a pantyliner in my panties for many years now. They feel natural now. I'll wear Stayfree or Always. I do like the way they feel. It's nice to have that secure feeling.

    Menstrual Cup

    I use a menstrual cup. It's made from flexible silicone. It's reusable so it's better for the environment and I don't have to spend money on tampons. The cup is much more comfortable and doesn't dry out or irritate my vagina like tampons do. I have an IUD for birth control that...

    Tampons, Definitely Not For This Place

    I've been using napkins for as long as I remember. Everyone I know uses napkins so it was logical that I follow what they use. I remember the first time I bought tampons. I was in the grocery with my sister and I happened to glance at the bottom shelf. Lo and behold, tampons...

    A Flow Like No Other

    They Makes Cramps Worse

    I used to use tampons in my early 20s. They seemed fine. But the older I got, the more they irritated me. I never got really bad cramps or anything around my period, but I started noticing that I'd get really bad cramps if I had a tampon in. So I stopped using them.. but then...

    Me And Tampons Are Not Friends

    After wussing out 4 or 5 times before actually 'going for it ' I put the tampon in and was a like "OH YEAH! FINALLY!" I won't deny there might have been some fist pumping.  Then after my wonderful performance of I Finally Got The Frickin' Tampon In (the Musical adaption of the...

    Tampons

    I've been using tampons for the longest time.  It always hurt me and I still wore them.  I made a choice not wearing them anymore which I'll stick to pads even if I don't like the feeling of it.  Better be safe then sorry.
