I am 35 and I just used tampons for the first time last week.  I was always scared to use them.  I always heard about how much they hurt or felt strange.  I was visiting my in-laws and it was super hot and they have a pool and I didn't want to miss out on swimming with my kids so I bought some.  I had no idea what I was buying and felt foolish in the store.  (Like any one could tell I had no idea what I was looking at.)  Si I just bought something that looked heavy duty because I have really heavy periods for the first 2 days.  I tried them and....



I freaking love them!  LOL  I went swimming with my kids, they are WAY cleaner, I could not even feel it, I almost forgot I was having my period at times.  


So what kind do you recommend I get?  I'm still a newbie.  What is good for super heavy flows?

Holy crap this is featured!

I use the compact ones from Tampax, I think when I am not using my diva cup.  I use my diva cup and love it.  Takes some getting used to putting it in but I am a pro at it and like you, forget that I even have my period!

I like the compact ones from Tampax cause they are small for my purse and fit in my hand or pocket and no one knows.

Thank you for the suggestion.  I think I want to try to work my way up to the cup I hear so many good things about them.  Baby steps!  LOL

I use tampax Pearl. I have a light flow so I get the regular ones. I love them. I've always used them.

I've tried them a few times and don't like them. Luckily i don't get my period more than a couple times a year, so i don't have to deal with it.

When I used tampons, Tampax Pearl and I think they were the compact is what I used too.  Now all I use is my Diva Cup.

OB hands down! There is no applicator, so you have to insert them with your fingers, but they are super absorbent.
