O.B. Silk Touch FTW

Been using O.B. since I was a teenager, it’s easy and quick and being applicator-less helps with better placement for my comfort. If O.B. ever went out of business I’d be super mad.

I don’t have to use them anymore since I got my IUD, thank goodness, but I always just used the plain old cardboard generic Tampax and never had any issues.

PinkPearls:  I noticed that you wrote that you used the generic/walmart version of tampax and said that tampax doesn’t work for you. Not all store brands are created equal and in this case, that isn’t something I’d skimp on.

For a really heavy flow- Tampax Pearl Ultra is the best! I’ve NEVER had a leak while using it. It’s the only tampon I use, and when my flow is a little lighter towards the end of my period, I use the Super Plus or the Super of the same brand. The Ultra isn’t sold at every place. I get mine from CVS or Rite Aid and I’m not always able to find it so when I do, I buy several boxes. I’m pretty sure its the highest absorbency tampon on the market.

I also don’t like regular menstrual cups, but I do love the Instead Softcups which you can also find at some CVS and Rite Aids. I only started using them a few months ago. It can get messy to remove and insert so I only use them when I’m home or know I will be able to get home before I have to change it. I wear a liner with it and have never had a problem with discomfort or leakage. I’ve tried 2 or 3 other menstrual cups incl the divacup and I’m just not a fan, but I do love these!
