    Red face another thread from me, sorry

    have you or do you use (this is embarrasing so please no making fun) adult nappies for your period at night time?

    im seriously considering using them at night due to a heavy period. i have been having to use 2 (sometimes more) overnight pads at night at a time just so i dont leak out all over the place (even if i get up 2 hours later i will be leakiing up the top or back of the pad, find sometimes they arent quite long enough)

    please share your experiences. did they work all that wel?l. fit ok? if you have a hubby what was the reaction?
    dh said last night that it would be smarter for me to use them but it turns out he thought he was having a dream and had a different response today.

    sorry for yet another advice thread.

    After having DS I'd wear two pads at a time, overlapping in the middle. It gives more protection at the top and back. And double the protection in the middle.

    To the moon cup!

    Also no, I have no experience with adult diapers but normal pads are bulky and uncomfortable enough, I imagine adult diapers are far worse.

    ive tried maternity pads and they were horrible. so bulky and think with no wings and are hard to walk around the house with. lol.

    who ever designed these needs some educating on a womans body. haha. maybe someone should come out with a new design

    I use 2 maternity pads, overlapping in the middle, stuck to my normal knickers, but then I put a big nanna knickers over the top. It helps hold everything in place. However. ..! I am trying to address the heavy period. I gave up dairy 6 weeks ago, and my last period was lighter, next one is due soon so it will be interesting to see how it goes. If you Google 'dairy heavy period'there are lots of results. I'm sick of dealing with it, I'm on iron to replace the blood loss, it' s ridiculous!

    I find the super sized stayfree with wings pretty good... well as good as it gets. I just put two after each other. they are fairly thin but can hold well.

    Lol it's the cowboy walk!!

    That must be horrible for you. I put a tampon in over night, don't think you are meant too. If I didn't, I'd have the same troubles as you.

    Oh the joys of womanhood.

    I'm curious about the cups but not sure I could use one!

    Hi Monkey, have you spoken with your doctor about this? There are a few medical conditions which can cause excess bleeding. I had fibroids and never knew until I became pregnant and they showed up on the scan.

    I was thinking fibroids. I'm a nurse and have seen this quite a bit.
