It feels like I'm wearing a diaper when I wear pads and I feel like I am constantly looking to see if I have a noticeable line from wearing one underneath my clothes. The only thing I feel noticeable with tampons is I might experience a little bit of a bloat at times. I don't see how it is a moral issue at all. Tampons are very hygienic if used correctly.

I 100% agree

I don't understand that mindset eitger. That's why I was wondering if anyone else heard of it or if it was just some out dated mind set from my Grandma's generation. She's the one who wouldn't let me use tampons growing up because she believed virgins shouldn't even be able to use them.

I only have problem with regular maxi pads. Those are giant bulky monsters that definitely create a line in my pants if I wear them. The pads I use are Always Infinity (unscented) because they are super thin. I guess I should have mentioned that the pads I prefer over tampons aren't the giant puffs of cotton you get out of bathroom machines for 25cents.

I use those infinity pads too. They are such an improvement over the huge puffy ones! Unfortunately, I can't use tampons anymore since they clog up our septic system and break the aerator. Also, tampons just don't seem to fit the same way since I pushed out two kids...they just feel loose or something and they're more likely to shift and leak.

The road rash I get from pads is extremely uncomfortable though. I tend to have a couple of really heavy days and it's just all gross and hurty with the pads. I am considering cloth pads too.

A lot of people I know use the menstrual cups...like a diva cup or moon cup or something. That whole idea scares me. Anyone use them here? How is it?

It's so weird. I always thought I must be the only person who gets a rash from wearing pads. I didn't mention it before but that is probably the second reason I don't wear them. I always end up with bad irritation and I cannot stand it. I used to use them for overnight protection, seeing as how pads are not too uncomfortable for sleeping.

For me personally I think it is my yeast infections irritating me more with the pads and then the pads are making it worse cus of no air flow. Sorry if that is TMI

LOL! No, it's not. I seriously do get some sort of skin irritation that's related to the material itself or something. Never have the problem with tampons.

It's the lack of circulation down there that causes the rashes, and the fact that there's moisture that touches skin for a prolonged period of time. Even if you change pads frequently, sometimes the rash shows up anyway...not be gross, but we have a ton of sweat glands in our crotches.

Most of us probably get them to some extent. Although this is somewhat OT, postpartum moms often complain of road rash, since you bleed for a while after you have a baby and you have to wear pads. It's the same thing.

Edit: sensitivities to the pad material can cause a whole bunch of problems too, that might seem the same. Ah, the joys of womanhood!

That's sad. My brother irritates the crap out of me sometimes but I wouldn't trade him for the world. He's done a lot for us.

I wish I had a sister, but my stand in little sister gets on my nerves sometimes :P But she is one of my only friends who has the same religion as me (atheism) but she has a different view from me, I love Christians and respect their views... she doesn't. So yeah I have a brother too, and he is kinda tearing apart our family and I prefer not to talk about it :/ but yeah, I might explain later if you guys want but I just got called to dinner.
