  • I used to use both because I have heavy periods, but then I started having chronic yeast infections. Now I use pads only, and I hate every minute of it. Haha. I usually use the generic versions of Always Ultra Thin maxis with wings.

  • on my light days i wear a pad just because i like to think i'm not keeping all the blood inside of me...on the heavy days though i have to wear a tampon because pads just don't seem to last very long. here lately i've been buying target brand..about 2 dollars cheaper and just the same as the name brands

  • I use cloth Pads/Liners and a Cup... I'm allergic to tampons and prefer not to use any disposable pads or liners...
