    I’ve been using tampons ever since I was 14, I tried them before I tried pads. I find pads to be like a last resort. They make me feel icky and like I’m wearing a diaper. I love love love my Tampax Pearl, but now that I’ve heard about DivaCup (I didn’t even know it existed until now) I might give it a try.

    I hate pads. Before I was on the pill, I would get horrible, nasty, periods that would immobilize me and it was a certainty that I would ruin any underwear I had on, no matter what I did. Now that I’ve been on the pill for about 5 years now, I barely get a period, and then I just use a tampon anyways. It’s great having a period that lasts for literally 2.5 days and you only get cramps for about 2 hours the whole time. Yay, BC!

    I use both depending on my flow. I can’t sleep with a tampon in though! When I sleep it’s contacts and tampons OUT! LOL

    –HILARIOUS STORY ALERT–

    In HS out of my group of friends, a few didn’t wear Tampon’s (we called them T’s and P’s LOL) and my friend and I were on a mission to “convert” them all to T’s. We convinced this one girl in our group to try one at school one day. She left her pad in as back up. At lunch we were all, “so, are you converted!??” And she was like “It’s weird, I’m still getting my period on my pad and took out the tampon and there’s nothing on it!” My other friend and I looked at each other in shock…. yep… she PUT IT IN THE WRONG HOLE.

    @kjpugs: Wow, there is a big distance between those two holes, someone needs an anatomy lesson!

    I’ve tried tampons a couple times, but i find them uncomfortable and i’m always worried i’ll, uh, have an accident.

    I HATE pads, but that’s all i can use.

    I’m not on BC anymore, so I have a 4  day HEAVY  flow. I use both. I use the Playtex Ultra tampons on days  1-3 with an Always Infinity pad. Day 4 is usually just a pad.

    Before when I was on BC, I never had to use Ultra tampons, regular or light worked. Now, it’s the last I’ll wear a regular or light pad. If then.
