I found that tampax expand lengthways too

I liked kotex tampons which now dont seem to exist so i just use a supermarket brand, much cheaper and i hate applicators.

I always thought about the mooncup but was never sure if it'd be for me.

Tampax. I've never really thought about using anything else, but after reading this thread I might give Lil-Lets a try. I dont think I could try a Mooncup, everytime I think about it I get mentally disturbing images of my aunt in cyprus washing her reusable cloth santitary towels! Eww, makes me heave...

Hehe, this thread reminds me of my spanish ex-boyfriend, and when he came over to England. He wanted some ear plugs for the flight home ("Tapones de oídos") so I sent him into boots. Of course, with his dodgy English, the shop assistant totally misunderstood him, and he came out 30 mins later trying to stick two tampax in his ears!

I've never tried non-applicator ones. I just stick to what I know, which is Tampax Compak. I only tend to get through about 4 per period anyway, so I doubt I'm contributing to landfill problems too much!

I've never thought about using anything other than Tampax either. Might give Lil-Lets a try though coz I trust it. Dunno why I don't trust own brands.
Oh once I tried this hair removal cream from Superdrug and it had very adverse effects so I thought never buying own brands again. Also, I think the fact that Tampax and Lil-Lets are specialised in these products is more reassuring.

When I used them I used lil lets non-applicator. I never saw the need for an applicator because your finger does the trick much better, and I hated the feeling of the plastic rim pushing in. ugh. Tampax are rubbish, they are made badly and don't absorb as much, and the shape of them is crap - particularly the applicator ones with a cardboard app. :/

I cannot reccommend the mooncup enough. Seriously, I had my doubts about the size of the thing but my body adjusted and LOVEE it! You don't get that horrible dryness from tampons or the mess from pads, and your period is much easier to ignore - there's no string to remind you.

Own brand ones are good I think. I use the ones from Aldi & Lidl- they're cheaper and I found them easier to get in and less annoying.

Mooncup ;yes; Although I tend to carry around a few tampons/pads with me, just in case of unexpected periodness. I use Tampax, but thats mainly because they always seem to be on offer. Usually go for whats on offer, but pads I tend to fork out a bit more....not entirely sure why...

But yeah, mooncup ftw

i'm another fan of tampax compak. a recent convert though, i tried them as a one off & discovered that the plastic applicator is definitely a good thing for me, so much easier!

Well, way back when I first started using them (9 years ago) I'm pretty sure lil-lets only did non-applicator so I didn't bother. I've always used Tampax and they've always been fine, never had reason to look elsewhere.

These Mooncup thingies... I really don't like the look of, what if they moved or something? Sick.

What the hell? 4? You need to be changing them every 4 hours really, if you have the right absorbency. You can't possibly be lucky enough to only be on for a day?!

Unless, you tend to use pads more... that would make sense. Sick, but more realistic.

I'm never on for more than 3 days, it's usually more like 2 and for the last day it's too light for even the lightest tampon. Hoorah for the Pill. I sleep in pads though cos I sleep longer than 8 hours too frequently!
