Tampons the first couple of days, pads when I'm not bleeding heavily and sometimes during the night

No longer have periods but when I did I used a menstrual cup. Pads freak me out (it's like wearing a nappy) and tampons just felt super uncomfortable! TMI: cups were also a ball ache for me bc I have vaginismus. I preferred cups to tampons though because more cost efficient and tampons just feel... weird and they're kinda drying. Cup was just a pain (literally) to insert and to take out but, eh, it was the best option I guess

Both but if I use tampons too much I feel bruised.

I'm wanting to make reusable pads whenever I get the motivation to sit down and sew

Tampons and panty liners. I need internal protection because I'm a severely heavy bleeder and pads offer NO protection from the storm if I move more than an inch. I'll swap to light pads or just liners only on the last day or so, when it's just spotting.

Tampons because I feel it's cleaner, and I don't have to hang them as often as pads. Pads are also uncomfortable and gross to look at with blood on them.

Tampons during the day and pads at night.

I'm always afraid that I'll leak through my pads or someone can see them through my pants lol

Tampons bc the blood doesn't get as much on your skin, you can wear whatever you want, go swimming (not that I do that lol). Pads are an extra whilst tampons are inside, so it's like there's nothing.

First tampons, then pads once the tampons begin to dry me out.

Diva cup!

I used to use the diva cup. Not sure why I went back to tampons and I still have my diva cup. I think I was a little embarrassed when I had to empty it in a public restroom and rinse it out in the sink. Some lady walked in and looked at me and walked out.

Tampons. I hate that feeling that I've peed my pants I get when i wear pads, do you know what i mean lol? And for some reason pads always leak for me when i sleep. I've never successfully slept through a night with a pad that hasn't leaked.


English is not my native language so I apologize for any grammar/spelling mistakes I make!

I wear both normally because I'm scared of leaking...

Tampons during the day, pads at night. And on my 4th and last day of my period, a panty liner because I have a super light one..
