Anyone use Instead

Hope this is in the right category

Does anyone use instead rather than pads or tampons? Have read reviews on it and how great it is. Bought a box, haven't quite got the hang of it, but haven't read any reviews that mention wearing it while sleeping. If you use them can you use them while sleeping or not?

  • I like them but the only problem I have is that they're messy to take out.

  • I tried, but I cannot get it in correctly. It is not uncomfortable or anything, it just leaks. And when I pull it out, there is no blood in it. I would like some more info on these if anyone has had success. I have a 'retro verted' uterus (if I am saying that right), could that by my problem?

  • They are good for me if my flow isn't heavy. If they fill up they just spill out in a serious gush--eww! For real!

  • I tried them, but they never worked well for me. I found them uncomfortable and they leaked when I slept. I have since switched to a Diva Cup which I like much better.
