Tampons girl here

I used to use pads but hated them. My friend introduced me to tampons many moons ago, i was trying to insert it and i was oohhing and aaahing, she looked me up and down and said ''like you've not had bigger things up there before'' anyway she talked me through it and i got it in and have had no troubles since grin.

It feels perfect for me, you got to find the right size for your flow and make sure you insert it all the way to eliminate the discomfort. keep the string hanging and oh dont worry it wont disappear inside. I forgot whether i had taken it out once(yes really embarassed, i used the lillets, real small ones) , i found that out after a very embarrassing trip to A&E only for the nurse to tell me how silly i was and there was nothing inside me.

tampons only

i used to use pads, but ever since i discovered tampons, there no going back, pads feel like diapers to me now, u don't really feel the tampons at all, and try a good brand,like tampax pearl or kotex, don't try the 25 cent ones in the public bathroom, those are for emergencies and are not very confortable, i feel very confortable with tampons that i could even go swimming in my pool with it. trust me if  u do it right there no going back to pads and remember you're not supposed to leave the applicator in, i made that mistake my first time. silly me. worth the try. jus imagine a cotton ball  up there, if u know what i mean.

Dont know how u girls do it. Pads urgh, they remind you that you on your period all day, they heavy, run risk of stain etc. not for me. You girls are brave. Tampons make you so free, you forget you on period.

I can totally relate. I swore I would never use tampons, but after doing it right, it feels very comfortable, you dont feel them. I am never going back to pads again!

Er, I don't think that's crazy. I live in TX and there's a high Latino population. I've heard that my whole life. It's true. I mean tampons have to push pass or break the hymen. That has lots to do w/ virginity, abi?
Re: What Do You Use When On Your Period? Tampons Or Pads? by Typewriter(m): 3:09am On Apr 30, 2006

Re: What Do You Use When On Your Period? Tampons Or Pads? by larger20(m): 3:26am On Apr 30, 2006
Tapoms were designed for the non virgins
Pad is for both virgins and non virgins.
Tapons for teens should be avoided unless the girl is fat in the Bottom and heating up in there cheesy grin.
Re: What Do You Use When On Your Period? Tampons Or Pads? by hotangel2(f): 3:28am On Apr 30, 2006

Re: What Do You Use When On Your Period? Tampons Or Pads? by glamrocka(f): 3:31am On Apr 30, 2006

Well the inventor/manufacturer of tampons were originally men. What do men know about vaginas & menstration? It could be argued that tampons weren't made for women! I mean, come on.

As a manufacturing engineer, if i were to go into the sanitary pad buisness, i will go through Quality functional deployment before any manufacturing takes place, this process will intensively involed womens contribution before any development. Women who will volunter their womanliness will be used during the process.
