  • Try the always maxi pads with wings. I think you can them in several different sizes and types.

  • Pretty much anything with wings. I liked always and kotex, but my mom gave some off brand that worked well.

  • I really liked the ones the hospital gave me bc they were so big LOL ...I wore 2 pairs of underwear keep it more in place felt more secure to me. It does suck and I am a tampon girl but you can't use them : (

  • cloth pads. ;) You have the fuss of washing them, sure, but they are SOO much more comfortable than irritating plastic/paper pads when you're so sensitive down there!!

  • I used the mesh underwear and the hospital pads for a couple days... It worked for me... But if you dont want that, anything with wings should be fine. Make sure you get SUPERS!

  • I like the Always maximum protection with wings. I plan on taking my own to the hospital this time around, even if I do have to spend the extra money.
