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?

tampons for me

I started with pads then changed to tampons after a year or so.
I found tampons less messy and were great when I was doing sports activities.

The cup is the way to go

The cup has been a godsend for me as well. I love it! I don't know how I ever used anything else. I tried pads first with embarrassing results, then tampons for years. I just got the cup a few months back. Talk about great!

Tried it all

I started out with pads and quickly moved to tampons + pads. I have never been able to use ANY tampon and have no leaks. So, I always used Kotex ultra thins and then a tampon with it.

Then I had my son and everything changed! I have horrible heavy periods and NOTHING can contain it on days 2 and 3. I started using Instead cups and it at least slowed it down to no leaks all over my clothes during the day but I still had at least 1 accident at night each period. This is even wearing the biggest Always pads.

Two cycles ago I bought the Diva cup and I really like it, although I still have to wear a pad with it due to leakage. It only leaks on days 2 and 3 but it is annoying! I don't know what I can do about it. I have been doing tons of kegels since having my son so I don't know if this Diva cup is going to work or not.

Pads to Tampons to reusable cup, finally found my match!

I started out using pads when I first got my period. Sometime in high school my mom got me some tampons to try, but I couldn't get the hang of them. Then during my sophomore year of college I decided to give tampons another try, and I used them almost exclusively for about a year.

...Then I heard about menstrual cups and after doing some research, I ordered a Diva cup. Hey, there was a refund policy if it didn't work! Anyways, I tried the Diva and have never looked back. I love it so much! I even wore it when my period showed up the day before my check-out dives for my scuba certification and didn't have any problems.

down with pads

started with Pads but I've used tampons mostly since I was about 14, I think. Slender and Regular seem to be the best for me. I hate pads...I feel like I'm wearing a diaper.
