Pads bc i wear them with tampons anyway since I bleed heavy.
Finally said "fuck it" and invested in some good ones.

Tampons. Pads feel/look/sound like diapers on me when I have to get the full size for my flow. I have to pick at them a lot to readjust. Tampons I can't feel even when inserting, never know they're there, no messy clean up every time I go to the bathroom, can actually get to a little bit of finger foreplay presex before I have to take them out (pads you can feel some stimulation through but not much it's just kinda bulky and soggy and for me personally embarrassing). To me it's just like panties vs thongs. Both are gonna go up my ass at some point. But at least one has less material that goes up there so it's not a ton of fabric bunching up into a giant wedgie or showing lines through everything. I respect everyone's personal choices but those are mine :)

tampons, always. Pads make me nervous that they might leak and they're really uncomfortable

Definitely pads! Tampons can cause an infection. Also, I don't find them comfortable at all. 


I need it.

Menstruaaaal cuuuups. I could talk about them all day but I basically like it because I could wear it all day without leaking, it only costs like $45 for 10 years of use, and it's healthier since it doesn't dry me out.

 

Cloth pads too but my flow isn't heavy enough anymore that I need pads for backup.

used to be a tampon gal but since i got a menstrual cup I'm converted. I never wanna use anything else

literally i don't dread my period anymore because of my menstrual cup. it's so convenient, so much cheaper, better for the environment, and weirdly way more comfortable than tampons, despite being kind of bigger than a tampon?

plus i can pop it in when i think my period might be coming, forget about it for like 30 hours, and it's not a problem cos no tss risk. suuuuuper handy for my scatterbrained ass

also my cup is a super cute purple one which appeals to my basic af brain lol

I wear tampon only the first day.
Then tampon and pad the 2nd..3rd day because my flow is too heavy due to endometriosis.
Then my 4th and 5th i wear just a tampon.

I have tried cups because they were non toxic and cheaper overall...but the size 1 and 2 wefe both way to big and hurt my inner walls.

Duuude it's the best feeling ever to take out your cup and see that you "caught" the first day of your period. Before my cup, I hated using the bathroom to see that I got my period.

Idk I think I like pads more so I can see/feel how much comes out, but I do find myself using tampons a lot too. So both.

Pads, I never got the hang of using tampons. Though maybe I'll consider menstrual cups in the future.

I used to be a firm believer in tampons, but I drink a crap ton of coffee/tea/water so I have to pee every 3 seconds... I don't have the patience nor time for that kind of maintenance 😂


? Do you change your tampon every time u pee or something? You don't have to.....
