  • I don't like them. I've used them in the past and didn't like them then, either.

  • I dont use them. I have done in the past but they are organic ones not ones with chemicals in them.

    I now use a mooncup but I rarely get a period due to fantastic breastfeeding :D

  • I try them every now and then but no matter how much I try, they don't feel comfortable. I'll wear them at night though, when they won't be too bothersome.

  • I can't use them on their own. No matter what size, no matter what brand...they leak.

  • I can't use them. None of the women in my family can. I've tried a few times and each time passed out. lol It's crazy so I finally just gave in.

  • I can't go without. I hate the nasty feeling of a wet pad.

  • I used them before my kids, but after giving birth they hurt/irritate me for some reason so I don't use them anymore.

  • I only use them for swimming. Too many times they have leaked.
