    This.
    And purchasing the right "size" might help too.
    I've been dancing since I could walk - and did 5 years on pointe. I still dance a couple times a week, but solely for fun and exercise.
    Cardboard applicators are not my friend. Neither are "long" tampons ( I don't know how else to describe them ) - so I learned from an early age Tampax wasn't for me. Feels like sandpaper going in and out (TMI sorry )

    It's plastic applicators and the "sport"/smaller shape size all the way...
    Also, if you use a tampon that doesn't exactly match/too "large" for the size your "flow", (Super-plus, plus), that can also contribute to uncomfortable-ness.


    And performance wise, I use to cut the string in half, then knot it. So it would be short enough to not poke out of a costume (whether or not I was wearing tights), but long enough to grab without having to give myself a pelvic exam.


    I have a question for the cup users:
    What if you have to change (empty? ) your cup in a public place/bathroom, where a tub is not readily available to squat in? What do you do? - In general, I don't need specific details.
    (This is a serious question, I know nothing about the cups, other than the cringe feeling I get walking by them at the store, because of the mental picture they give me).

Also, it will last up to 10 years, so you save a ton of money that you would have spent on tampons and pads.


    Lol, there is a funny thread about these.

    I don't know about tampons, but the blood on sanitary napkins starts to rot, because it's exposed to the air, which creates an unpleasant odor. This is especially apparent if you put it in the trash and don't empty the trashcan for a few days.

    And yes, maybe the trick is to completely unclothe from the waist down and swap it out while squatting in the bathtub. Then have to hose yourself off and clean out the tub. How convenient.
    Compared to having to remember to buy various sizes of pads each month and have them with me for when I inevitably had to change them, to just emptying my cup about twice a day, it is convenient.

    Glad they work for some but you couldn't pay me to use them again. I prefer to use tampons and try to forget the whole thing is happening.
    It's interesting, because I often forget I'm even on my period when I use my cup.

    You can technically change your cup over the toilet, wipe it with some toilet paper, and stick it back in. However, the cup holds so much more liquid than a tampon that you shouldn't ever have that problem. I'm just a fumbly-fingers, so I do it somewhere where I won't drop it in the toilet.

    I would try the cup, makes better sense to me, but I haven't been very motivated to change my routine considering my cycle is relatively short and light. A bunch of you gave me shit about my poop question, yes I understand anatomy....but as someone mentioned, it just feels kinda not nice to go #2 with one there. But the more important thing for me is that the tampon gets pushed out a little bit afterwards, and for some reason, I can't get it back to the right spot so that it stays, it's kind of a lost cause at that point. I always wanted to ask other women's experience of that, but it's the weirdest, grossest question ever. Maybe I need a bigger size? Now I feel like our long-lost poster Caramel.

    I'm the one who answered that I do the same thing. I understood your question. I think the other person understood your question as well, for the record. I don't think a bigger size would help. I think you just have a very strong pelvic floor and muscles. A good thing for the fun things that go on down there. Not so fun when pushing is involved when there is something you'd like to stay in place.

    ^ I get what you're saying ManxMouse. Same thing happens to me, I've tried different brands & sizes with no luck. I've always just put it down to maybe its because of having a tilted/tipped uterus. It causes irritation from changing so often sometimes, but I'd rather deal with that then wear one improperly placed from trying to push it back in.

    If the tampon is coming out when you use the bathroom, you probably are either wearing the wrong size (too long, maybe), or you don't have it fully inserted.
    When you are wearing the proper size tampon & have it inserted correctly, you should not feel it at all.

    I asked the anatomy question, part tongue in cheek, because I did not know if you were a woman, and also because my Dr., told my DD's (when teaching them about inserting tampons properly) that when she first started wearing tampons, she didn't realize that she didn't have to remove the tampon when urinating.

    lacs, I just read your post, my older DD has a tilted cervix, she is the one who swears by the cup. Maybe that would work for you.

    OB's go wider not longer like tampax. Much better IMO.

    I always liked OB's. My DD, the cup user, does not like that there is no applicator. I can't figure her out....

    i was the same way. tampons just never did really "fit" me. It's not my fault that everyone else has a wide-set vagina and a heavy flow! It's also not my fault that my box is nice & tight. I don't think it's that a "bigger" tampon is needed, I'd think shorter.

    could be. i would think someone would have mentioned that my shit was tilted by now ... would someone (obgyn) mention that or is that something that you self-diagnose?

    I remember the first time I was confrontated with all this stuff. My mum gave me a tampon with an applicator and I was hiding for about 30 minutes in the bathroom and had no idea what to do with that thing. I was horrified. I thought it's something created in hell.
