    Just curious !
    Personally, I find tampons so much easier. But a few people I know won't/don't use them - if this is you, why not??

    Sanitary towels, I always think tampons would be uncomfortable after a long time.

    I recently started using tampons and they're far easier than pads..... Pads are so messy and i never feel clean...

    Tampons ftw

    That means they are not inserted far enough. When they are inserted properly you cannot feel them at all

    A thread with a lot of anon going on

    I use both - tampons only when it's REALLY heavy like gushing and gushing out of me like a TAP like it always is at the start of my period.
    Then after a couple of days when there's hardly anything left only smidgens I use towels becasue it's not good to use tampons on a really light flow, and I'd forget to change them often if I didn't need to.

    I tried to make that post as disgusting as possible by the way.

    Why is this a two-choice question when there are other options? Dislike.

    Towels.

    I have really irregular periods though so I don't have to wear them often. If they get more regular I think I'll give the mooncup a try
