I Dont Use Tampons

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 86 People

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    **Gross Warning** Yeah I'm a virgin

    but that's not why I don't use Tampons. The reason I don't use Tampons is the flow is too heavy... for those little bitty things. I have clots and don't like the idea of things being trapped when they should be flowing out. They're not for me. I have tried one. It took me 3...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.
