  • Try switching to a more sensitive brand. Ask your doc or pharmasist if they have any suggestions. Your body changes after kids and maybe you're just more sensitive than you were prior.

  • I can't wear them anymore either. Its like I feel them more and it gets super uncomfortable. I have tried the smooth applicators and a couple different brands...platex easy glide have been the best for me, but still not good.

  • I have never been able to wear them without feeling them. I found them to be uncomfortable and stopped years ago.

  • What kind of pain are you talking about? Depending on where it's located, it could be ovarian cysts. I was like that after I had my last baby and they finally figured out that source of my pain.
