    Egolita, there was a poster in our ladies toilets advertising these and everyone at my work was totally freaked out! Are they really quite good?

    I had this problem the first time I tried to use them, too. I experienced a lot of discomfort and pain trying to insert them, and I think it definitely had to do with the fact that I had never had anything up there before! By the second month that I was using them, it had gotten a lot easier.

    I would also recommend trying Tampax Pearl. They have slim, smooth plastic applicators that slide right in. It's much easier and more comfortable than trying to jam that cardboard applicator in. I STILL feel pain when I try to insert regular tampons with a cardboard applicator. It's difficult because there's more friction.

    Tampax Compax are also good. They have a plastic applicator but it's a little thicker than the Pearl applicator.

    Good luck!

    ^^if you have minimal bleeding, like if it only lasts 3-5 days, never changes colour (you lucky, LUCKY bitches) there won't be enough lubrication to make insertion easy.

    I'm not a virgin in any sense of the word but i've never, ever managed to insert a tampon and not having hurt like a son of a bitch. I don't understand how you do it. Not to mention that I bleed like a fucking pig the first 3 days or so therefore a tampon isnt' a real option.

    Laxmobster, that girl in your HS has some serious hygiene issues. I don't think I've ever smelt that on anyone and I think that if you change pads regularly, odour is not really an issue.

    I've also been around people and been able to smell that they were bleeding. I think I have a really sensitive sense of smell anyway, but it grosses me out. I think it tends to happen to girls in school because they don't have the opportunity to change their pads as often as they need to. I know at my school, many teachers didn't allow students to leave for the restroom.

    Classes were 90 minutes with a 2 minute break in between. In that amount of time, you might have to go from the east wing of the third floor to the west wing of the 1st floor and stopping by the bathroom wasn't a feasible option unless you wanted to get detention for being late. If you did decide to go to the bathroom, you better pray there wasn't a line. Really the only surefire opportunity to change a pad or tampon was at your lunch break.

    That is simply inhuman. A human rights violation for sure. Animals need to pee (period)

    I always use tampons.
    I researched the diva cup after finding out about it on GR, and I purchased it online, only to have my dog tear the fuck out of it before I could even use it. I literally had it in my possession for like 24 hours. I was so mad, because that was like $30 down the drain.

    I use sanitary pads most of the time. I also use tampons when I want to do sports and it's one of those days, but lately I have used them very rarely because I have been reading about health risks they pose.

    The menstrual cups also sound like a good idea, mostly because they are re-usable, but I am not comfortable with the idea of putting objects into my body.

    Coming back to sanitary pads, I should say that I have used Always for years, in spite of them leaking and the bad smell and in spite of them making me feel irritated. I thought that was just the way you were supposed to feel when you are having your period, so I did my best to bravely suffer through it. That stopped recently, when I discovered the SPAM pads produced by HORMEL. They are so much better! No leakage, no odor, and no irritation at all! Actually I have been quite surprised to experience the easiest period in my life so far!

    I cannot fathom why anyone would use anything but tampons. I have used them since age 14 and assure you virginal! Anyway,I went through a phase where I was convinced everyone could "tell" & Mother got some for me. OB is the best-invented for women by a woman! Novel concept. You can all get a free sample & see for yourselves. This stuff works! And no,I do not work for them! Other countries,too-not just US.

    Environmental reasons, for one. Most of my friends will only use the cup (cuz they're hippies). I haven't used anything in months! Muahahahahah!

    I don't use tampons because they don't fit.
