  • I have always use pads. I just feel more comfortable with using them then a tampon.

  • Maybe youre not inserting them far enough? I know thats the case for me. Personally pads feel icky to me lol.

  • I also use pads because tampons give me bad cramps.

  • I used pads until I had my first child but now I use tampons. They used to hurt me in the beginning and sometimes they go kinda crooked or something and I have to take it out and try again with a new one. But it's fine and painless 99% of the time.

  • i prefer tampons, though sometimes they are uncomfortable i feel less messy (sorry that's gross). Since having DD though tampons feel funky, though since having my Mirena removed it's a little better, we'll see how it fares after baby #2's arrival in a couple months.

  • I've always used pads. I've tried tampons only a few times. I find tampons to be very uncomfortable and they hurt.
