why did you leave a tampon in for a month haha?

 

 

I had no idea haha, sorry I forgot to mention that. I pretty much forgot to take it out and stuck another one in and it got pushed up to my cervix. When my ex and I had sex, he noticed a bit of bruising... and then we found out why he was bruising. 


I'd like to change my status to a lower weight please, 

fucking please.

I only wear tampons when I wanna go swimming on my period. I just don't like that they basically keep the blood that is supposed to come out, in my vagina? Just the thought of it makes me uncomfortable. I'll just stick to pads whenever I can.

I used to use tampons but lately have gone back to pads, unless I'm going swimming. I have pretty light, short periods so it's not a huge deal. I've been wanting to try out a menstrual cup but I'm a bit nervous about it.

Tampons. Pads feel like gross diapers to me. But I have a heavy flow so...

Maybe this will give my life a meaning.

Pads are just plain awkward. Tampons are the way to go. Way less blood to deal with

I used to use pads because tampons (I tried a variety of sizes & brands) were uncomfortable, especially since I have a lighter period.

About 6 months ago I got a diva cup from target. The size for women who have never given birth- 1 I think? TBH I expected it to not work & be uncomfortable like tampons but it has been a total game changer. The cup is all I use now. It feels more sanitary, Is more comfortable than pads or tampons, and has saved me money.

Both honestly, though I really hate tampons.
Here's my fucking rant about fucking tampons.
They generate so much waste, esp since I blaze through a fucking box. I felt terrible for using non-biodegradable plastic tampons so I switched to cardboard.
I feel like my snatch becomes a lint trap for cotton and I HATE having to pull out a dryish one. I'm never confident with exercising or going out due to the possible humility of breakthrough bleeding. The first 3 days of my period is hell and tampons never fail to disappoint me.

I had a cup before and loved it, just bought a new one. I'll still use pads just in case but I'll always be paranoid that everyone notices when I'm using a pad while wearing workout pants. >:C

Cloth pads.

Great for the environment, no chemicals = happy labia, plus you can choose exactly how you want them.

My pads are rainbow zebra print and my liners green snakes.

Yea it was pretty bad. What's even worse is how they found out. I was going in for an ultrasound and they couldn't see my cervix (in Korea, they use the vaginal camera, idk how they do it in the states). Something was blocking my cervix. So they took a closer look and were like, "wtf how are you not dead."

 

It was a month old because I thought I was going to get my period a month ago (but I was pregnant) and put in a tampon just in case. 

 

The doctors were like, it's a miracle you didn't get sick or poisoned. I got mad shots after that.

I get (jokingly) asked if I'm a pre-teen for doing this... but I only wear pads... I can't have anything up me without feeling it and being uncomfortable (can't even have an IUD because of this).

Too used to pads. I get super heavy flows and a tampon would NOT be ideal to hold all of that blood in. Id rather be changing pads. Besides im too "tight" tmi sorry >< but yeah
