Feminine Protection Usage

What was the first type of feminine protection you used - pads, tampons, menstrual cup? Do you still use the same feminine protection, or did you switch completely - when, why?

I still use pads. I have never tried anything else. I started my period when i was 11 and have used them since then.

I love forgetting I'm on my period!

I started with pads, as that's what my mom used. Never was fond of them...adhesive sticking to my leg, or it folding over and becoming useless and ineffective...

I got free samples of tampons and pretty much used those only when necessary (like swimming).

But now? Divacup all the way. I have to make sure to trim my nails before putting it in, but it is SO nice to be able to FORGET that I'm on my period! And of course I love that it's better for the environment and less risky than tampons. And cheaper!

pads are a thing of the past!

The first kind of protection I used when I was in middle school was pads and only a few tampons when swimming or whatnot. However, now days, I don't think I've used a pad in many many years. I only use tampons. I switched and probably will never switch back. They're cleaner, last longer and I don't have the constant reminder that AF is around. I do worry about TSS sometimes, but as long as I use the appropriate absorbency level and change them often enough, I feel good about my choice.

I use both pads and tampons

I used pads at first, then switched to pads and tampons...I used the cup for awhile but it always leaked. I love OB tampons and I still use pads and tampons, especially on heavy days.
