Please do not come at me but I love reusable cloth pads. I know they’re not for everyone but they are for me and I love them. They never leak and my period cramps are not as bad as with disposables.

The cups are horrible. Leaked and major cramps whenever I used them. So I went back to pads and tampons. I’ve tried a couple of the period underwear brands but haven’t found anything suitable yet. Haven’t tried reusable pads either.

Cups can be tricky. You need to find one that’s right for your body. There are different styles and sizes. But once you find the right ones they’re so much better and more cost effective in the long run than disposable products. Do you sew? There are patterns for washable pads. I’ll stick with the cup

There are also panty liners and washable period underwear and washable pad products. I have never tried the washable stuff but I would some day if I ever got a free sample or something like that.

I can’t do cups or tampons but I have some washable pads and I love them

I like tampons I think pads and the cups are icky

Pads r gross to me because I can feel the “flow” and I practically need a wipe to clean up on medium to heavy days. Cups I wouldn’t mind since I can wear one on days I think I might start without drying my “who ha” out. They are more friendly to the environment. You can also keep them in for a long time. I do not yet because u need a learning curve and I am currently working to much for that. When you take them out in the beginning, u can make a huge mess! You should also have three of them I think. Tampons r my go to right now since they keep me clean n r the least messy for me at this time. I have thought about the Sponge as they have some of the same benefits as cup but you shouldn’t have issues with fit or as much of the mess. Good luck😁

Ive recently started using the disks and for some reason im just not doing it right i have a heavy flow and i need something for at work that doesnt leak or feel like a diaper tampons just dont work with my flow and clots(are big) ive pushed past the pubic bone and everything its frustrating me as i have a highly physical job and cant stop for period problems. Ive tried a cup a few times but have had too many troubles with that as well

I don’t get periods right now, being on mirena, BUT my sister-in-law got toxic shock syndrome from tampons and we nearly lost her. I havent worn a tampon since.

I do like the cups. They are messy but so is a tampon, really.

At night, or on heavy days, I would wear period underwear and an overnight pad.

I do the disposable soft cups they are more comfortable than the traditional cup and I use a pantyliner with (sometimes they leak but they last a long time)
Around the house I usually use pads however.

I’ve never been able to do anything but pads. I’ve been wanting to try the reusable because I go through so many disposable ones. Seeing these positive comments about them and gives me hope!

I’m old fashioned. I just wear tampons. I don’t like pads because I don’t want to sit for hours in my own filth and they leak out the sides onto my panties, and screw the cups… they would be so uncomfortable to me and I know it so I’m not wasting my money. To each their own though.

My body rejects tampons and the cup. Literally pushes them out. So i use pads.
