    YES!!!! 24/7. Those few weeks after a baby and wearing a pad are so ewwww. I also am only a user of tampax / applicator tampons. So easy to use and i find u can wear them longer than the non-applicator ones!

    Yes! The worst part of childbirth is having to use pads, they are gross! I do have to use liners too though as i have a heavy period.

    No way! I used to wear a menstrual cup but after months of trying I came to the conclusion that the one I had wasn't the right size for me and I just haven't done anything about trying a new one...it's been about a year. Every month I think to myself that I must buy one and then I forget again.

    However, I only need a pad for the first night. After that I just go to bed with nothing and my period is light enough that I'm fine until morning like that. Even if I get up and attend to the kids, or go to the toilet, I'm still fine.

    I was told the same thing as a kid that it was bad to wear them overnight so I don't.

    You should never leave a tampon in more than 5 hours!! I've never worn one to bed, not safe It's good to give your body a rest from them overnight anyway (or switch to a cup and then you don't have to worry )
