What sanitary protection do you use? Watch
Just looked into mooncups - they look pretty good, I'm going to have to get one I think!
I have heard people before saying you can still have sex whilst wearing a mooncup...??!!! Is that right? I can't imagine that would work, ie he wouldn't fit in?!!
I use tampons at the moment. I wear them through the night, simply because I hate the mess with pads as even when I 'clean up' and use a tampon again in the morning there is always some initial leakage!! But I am also conscious of TSS and am a little worried wearing tampons all the time for 5 days.
Hoping I'll get on with the mooncup....just not a fan of paying £20 when I might hate it and I'm as skint as hell to waste £20 :/ ....any cheaper options guyysss???

I use them day and night, not just because my periods are heavy, but because they're the most soft and comfy pads you can buy! And very absorbent, too.
Yes, they're a little thick and bulky, so not the best for use with leggings or tight-fitting clothes, but otherwise, especially with a skirt and/or dress and tights, they're great.
I really don't get on with Always pads, or indeed most other brands, because I find the synthetic materials they're made from quite hard and scratchy against my skin, and definitely not comfy!
Kotex Nightime pads are different, because the filling is made from old-fashioned cotton wool and the top cover is lovely and soft, so the pad is always 'cushioning' you down below, which is great especially when you're a bit sore.
It won't really help with your b/f, but he shouldn't really be touching you there anyway when you're on, so do like I do and just push his hand away and tell him that you've got your period, and that should be enough to combat his wandering hands!
Hope this helps
Honestly, if your periods are heavy and are fed up with normal pads that often leak, I defo recommend the Dr Whites. Once you get used to wearing them, and how comfy the feel, you won't want to use anything else!!
