For those of you who use tampons, are you seriously able to just wear tampon and NOT a pad as a backup?  I would NEVER EVER just wear a tampon, I always have to have a pad as a backup. The only way I could probably get by with just using a tampon is if I changed my tampon like every 30-45 minutes.  I can wear a super large one though for severak hours but I ALWAYS LEAK onto the pad, well at least 90% of the time

When I used tampons, I soaked through those suckers in under two hours. Ultra lasted maybe three. I'd always have to wear a pad.

I always wear a backup but I have super heavy duty periods and never know when I am going to have a gush so I have to.

I only wear pads, I can't stand tampons. But if I were going to use a tampon - yeah, I wouldn't trust just a tampon alone. I'm pretty ignorant on the topic though.

Due to uterine issues I can't wear tampons at all :( I'm rather jealous because I can't STAND wearing pads for an entire week out of the month.

Yes I just use a tampon but you are still normal.

I always use backup, at least for the first day or two.
