I use both during the first 3-4 days, then only pads after that. I prefer tampons because they make me feel less gross but they still leak and there's the danger of forgetting about them if you're really busy/stressed.

I have only ever used sanitary towels during my period. Never had the notion to try tampons.

Pads. I'm really paranoid about toxic shock syndrome.

I use both! On the first two days of my period when its heaviest I usually double up and use a tampon and pad, and on my lighter days I use just normal pads. I also only ever sleep in pads, never in tampons

I use pads only, mostly because I don't think it would be comfortable to put tampons in but also because of the risk of TSS.

Tampons + some sort of pad.

Although I wanna try the cup; apparently there's less of a leakage.

I hardly ever have a period though :rofl:

I use pads, then liners when my flow is lighter towards the end, tampons seem painful and for me not necessary

Why use either of them when you could use a menstrual cup?

(Okay, I get there are plenty of reasons for wanting to use either, but I've solved pretty much every menstrual problem I've ever had with either by switching; plus it's much more environmentally friendly and cost-effective in the long run!)

Don't be ridiculous - change them every few hours - and you won't have a problem

Pads ftw, it just seems the most natural to let the blood flow out and be caught with the pad. The only problem I have with them is they feel a bit gross on the first few days you have your period and you have to sit in your blood. They're also horrible for the environment but the thought of using a tampon or diva cup scares me. Also knowing me I'd probably forget I'm even wearing a tampon and end up sticking another one up there.

I have no idea what a Dutch cap is, let alone what that post actually means.

I prefer using tampons, but I have to use both when my period is particularly heavy. For a few years my period lasted for two weeks at a time, so I got through a load of em'!

I use both but I'm just got my diva cup since I'm trying to make the change from tampons to a menstrual cup. I haven't tried it out yet though
