I Dont Use Tampons

    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.

    I have always had a light flow

    so I have never saw the point in using one. And I don't know how it is with other girls, but they always seemed a bit too big for me to fit comfortably.

    A Flow Like No Other

    From the very first time I started menstruating at 11 years old I've had nothing but problems. I'd go for 2 or 3 weeks with a period then stop for 2 or 3 months and start up again. The start "day" of my my period would circulate through the days of the month, sometimes changing...

    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...

    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...

    When I got my first period my mum showed me how

    to insert a tampon however I found them (and still do) to me yucky. Between the first period and my second I asked a few close friends that were a little older and one gave me a pad. Much better and I have not looked back since.

    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.

    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...
