When I was much younger (High School and college) I used tampons. I just was getting too many vaginal infections and the tampons were worsening the situation. I switched back to pads, and I usually use those.
I do have a box of disposible menstrual cups. They just felt weird. I'm kind of a "Celebrate your Moon Time" chick (even though I often get nasty nasty cramps) and I feel weird when I use the toilet and can't see the flow. Does that sound weird? I'm just so used to having it there
when I menstruate, that the cup made me feel weird. I will keep them for emergencies and when we go swimming (if we go) this summer.
I actually made cloth menstrual pads, I used flannel in a cute pink rose pattern. I attached velcro, and some velcro to several pairs of panties. I never used them. Just too used to regular pads, regular absorbency, with wings. I HATE the "overnight" pads, (unless it's the second night, then I might need those) because they feel like a diaper.
