what brand of tampon do you recommend?

This may be TMI but I need advice. I don't use tampons often but I have been recently. In the past I haven't had a problem whenever I did use them but since I had my 2nd child my periods have been very heavy. So heavy that I have to wear a panty liner or pad even when I wear a "super" tampon because of the leakage. I know there may not be a perfect tampon but what brand(s) do you ladies recommend?? I have used Playtex & Kotex.
Thanks in advance ladies!

  • I use Kotex. The first day of my period is always worse so I use Kotex Super tampon and a pad. The rest of the days I just use the regular Kotex.

  • I have to wear a liner as well. But I love the playtex sport. Have you tried those yet?

  • Thanks ladies. I haven't used the new Playtex ones Mika mentioned so I'll have to try that as well as OB. Thanks again!

  • Have you thought about a menstrual cup. It is not for everyone but you might like it. And a real plus is that there is no buying supplies every month.

    The one I have is called "the Diva Cup" you can google it for a lot of great information.

  • i like playtex sport, but i'm always heavy so i have to wear a liner anyway, regardless of the brand.
