Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Okay. So me and my friend were talking on the phone and somehow we got on the subject of tampons lol. We were just talking about periods and all the fun stuff that goes along with being on your period. Anyway, my question is to you ladies is when you are on your period and when you are in the shower do you take your tampon out before you shower and put a new one in after your shower or do you shower with a tampon in while your on your period? We are having a bet over this...

I leave it in and change it afterwards. I feel no particular need to clean internally, while on my period, as some suggest. It seems counter productive to rinse an area that is having a constant flow of blood at that point. I also flow much to much to simply leave it out and be comfortable. I could deal with the blood int he shower (although it's not really something I'm crazy about) but not the dripping all over when the water is off and I'm getting out of the shower.

I'm really confused! Did you put toilet paper inside yourself. I'm not trying to be rude but seriously am curious.

I clean myself inside and out when i shower. When i use tampons, i want a new one. This week i was low on cash, so i simple used toilet paper. I was surprised at how less of a mess there was..

I wear mine in the shower until my flow is light...I don't want to bleed on my towels or my freshly cleaned body. I usually change it right before I jump in so everything's clean (my flow is VERY heavy for the first 1.5 days).
