Do any of you have to use tampons and pads?!?!?!

And if so, do you use over nights, or just double up on pantyliners?

I use over nights at night time, but during the day, I like triple up the pantieliners.

Why not just use a pad if you have to triple up on liners?

I double up on the pantiliners, especially the first couple days. I need to just buy big pads for overnights but only seem to remember when it's too late, so I usually end up tripling up for overnights. Luckily I manage to wake up on my own every couple hours or so

Hate them.

They feel like diapers.

I'm not a newborn baby. Pantyliners I don't feel them as much.

That's how I am, the first couple of days, I need to use both. And I can't use the super tampons.

I wake up every so often, or when I feel weird or "wet" in the middle of the night.

I've taken baths at 3am many many times.

Do you have endometriosis?

I get those too. I had drs tell me it was normal for years as well, then I had one that finally looked more into it instead of just giving me more pain meds. I had surgery November 2008 and it helped a lot! However, there's no cure and its bad again :(

When I wear tampons it doesn't seem like I bleed enough for them, even the regular or light ones. They eventually start to hurt after a few hours and I end up just using a pad. This has been going on since I had DD. I use pads overnight, but barely bleed till I get out of bed.

Yeah.

I think I'm gonna wait it out another month, and if it doesn't get any better I'll call my doctor and tell her that I want tests done to see what's wrong.

Good luck!
The only way to confirm endo though is through surgery
