  • Since day one i have always used tampons. I think they are cleaner I can't stand the though of the blood just sitting on me down there. I wish I would have tried pads sooner that way I didn't have to find out I was allergic at the worst time. During my six week post partum when you have to wear pads I found out i as allergic to them of course at perfect timing.. I didn't even know that it was possible to be allergic to pads..

  • I use both depending on which is more comfortable at the time. In the trash a pad is cleaner because it does not soak through anything, but a tampon is cleaner around the body for me.
    For other people though, I do not know.

  • I think that pads are cleaner than tampon's, But I couldn't use tampons due to I'd end up in the hospital every time with toxemia. So I guess it a matter of what the woman chooses.

  • I use tampons 100% of the time, and I think they are cleaner too. Less smell, less mess.

  • Both. If I work out, I use tampons. It also depends on flow and all that good stuff.
