Playtex Sport opens 360 not just to the sides.

I’ve always gone with Kotex for feminine hygiene products. Before I went on the pill, I used to have awful, heavy periods and I never had a leak with their super and super plus tampons. Try a higher absorbancy and change frequently (every 4 hours even though you can go up to 6 I think).

I also use their thin pantiliners, which might help in the event that you do leak.

I usually use the Diva cup but for tampons I only use Kotex. I have NO idea why people like tampax pearl– I hate that applicator for the life of me lol.

Tampax pearl and platex sport are my favs. I recently tried the U by Kotex ones and the strings always rip off.. Thats what I get for using a coupon! Tampax pearl is def my fav

I actually started using the target brand (prior to pregnancy) and I found they seem to work just great. I spend way less. If I don’t use those I buy platex

Tampax Radience is the best there is! I refuse to use anything else. Much better than the pearl.

I use O.B no applicator but mostly because I hate tossing that much plastic in the trash. I still have leakage problems no matter what brand, but OB is the best so far… Attempting a cup, but the one I bought is leaking too. Maybe some of us are doomed to leaks 😭

I haven’t had a period since I got my IUD, but I always used plain old Tampax (or store brand equivalent) cardboard tampons. I never had any issues with leakage, even when I forgot about it for a little longer than recommended.

I’ve been a Tampax girl since I was 13!!! Over 30 years and aside from trying Playtex once, ( which I didn’t care for), I’ve always had good results with Tampax!

Lil-Lets. I thoroughly hate anything with an applicator. Far easier and more comfortable without.
