Do you prefer tampons or pads?

The thong question got me thinking about this.
I like pads much better. But maybe its because once the string broke off of a tampon I was wearing and I thought I would never get that thing out....LOL.

  • I use tamponds when I am heavy to normal flow. Then after that I use pads.

    I cant stand the feeling of using a pad when I am heavy. BLAHH......makes me want to scream.

  • I would like to wear tampons more because there is less mess but no matter how much I try, they never feel comfortable. They always feel like there going to fall out no matter how much I try to insert them the right way! I'm probably doing it wrong.

  • I use pads even though I hate the feeling of them. But I've never been able to deal with tampons. I dont know why but they're always uncomfortable.

  • I think age has a lot to do with it. Pads are an abomination to Probably because when I began menstruating we used these pads that were a mile long and tied on this ridiculous elastic belt. My mother made it clear tampons were only for "married women" Yep, prude. She would have shot me had she found out I secretly began using tampons at 15.

  • I tried tampons but my flow has always been too heavy.

  • Tampons, definitely. Sometimes if its real heavy, I'll use a tampon and panty liner (just in case!). I wore pads for the longest time but they bunch up and I always felt like people could see them through my clothes lol.

  • Tampons definately. Pads are messy and gross me out.

  • I use both. On heavy days I use tampons and pads. On regular days I use tampons. On light days I just use a different absorbency tampon.
