I've been happily using cloth for the past year or so. I started yesterday, and this morning I didn't have any real close, so I grabbed a tampon. An hour later, I felt likeiI was in labor again. Everything in me was screaming, "foreign object! Get it out!" So much pain. Has this happened to anyone else?

You might not have put it in right? If you don't put a tampon in correctly, it's super painful!

It does that to me also if I don't use a light absorbent one.

Different kind of pain. When I've done that, it hurts almost immediately. This was an hour later, and it was just terrible cramping. Not like I've had in a really long time.

Quoting Embee562:

That has happened to me but I thought it was because I have endometriosis.

I've never really used cloth pads for very long but that sucks!

Yes.  The chemicals in disposable products do that to you.  I had aweful cramps and my flow was even heavier than my extremely heavy normal.  It took 3 months to get back to my normal, too, after just 2 days of disposable products.

I haven't been able to use tampons since having my dd without being in horrible pain.
