    Sea Sponge Tampons Are So Much More Comfortable

    After reading the story about changing from Standard Tampons to the Sea Sponge type I searched the Web and got some. What a difference, they are so comfortable. Insertion was a bit of a problem at first but solved by putting it into a plastic Tampax Compaq tube and with a little...

    Started Right From The Beginning.

    Hi all. I started using tampons before I had my first period. My cousin told me about how good they were, and gave me a few slender sized ones to try out. It was a bit hard at first, but I got used to it. I even wore them around when i didn't have my period yet, and yes I know I...

    I've been using tampons

    since I first started menstruating. I started using tampons because that's what my mom used. I keep pads but only for sleeping and for real light days. I've tried using just pads and found them too bulky and not as comfortable. I switched back to tampons because they're more...

    Gotta Love The Tampons

    I didn't start using tampons until I lost my virginity. Once I started, I suddenly hated using pads. They're bulky, they shift and move everywhere, they smell... I'll never go back.

    Happy Ending

    Tonight was a good night. Feeling a little girly, I went shopping for some new lingerie. On my way home I stopped at the local department store to pick up some tampons. I have one in now, enjoying every minute while I model my new purchases for my girlfriend.

    I don't see how all these girls use only pads. If I have to use a pad at all I hate it. It's messier and feels weirder. It's gross for me. My sister is like, "I can't stand having something up in me all the time" and I say, "Aren't you kinda used to having something up in you...

    Me Too

    I only started being comfortable with tampons after I lost my virginity. Pads were fine up until then. I had tried tampons a couple of times but just wasn't comfortable with them. As I got older I just felt tampons were more convenient and a lot more discreet. I'm not ashamed of...

    Something Different

    Just put in my first Playtex Sport Super Plus tampon. OMG! It does feel way different as it expands. Feels much fuller than the "normal" super plus. I think I just found my favorite one.

    Tampons, when i use them, make me feel more feminine. The feeling inside me. Tampons also are more discreet to carry in a handbag or purse.
