I haven't had along enough or frequent enough period in the last four years to have a clear opinion!
I know I was ssssooooooo with @Nomsie with being a young, massive bleeder who just died with the libra surfboard.
I can now, four years post last birth wear a tampon but it isn't comfy AT ALL.
Need to buy a cup but everytime I go looking I don't have a period for three months.
Wow. This thread reminds me just how much I love my Mirena.
No period in over 8 years!
Yes hate hate hate the wings 😁😁
I hate all pads. They can all go die in a firey pit of hell
And on that note, I'm going to cast my vote for wings. On heavy days when you feel like you're overflowing, they help reduce my paranoia about leakage making its way first onto my undies and then my pants/skirt.
@GucciDahling now you've posted the photo I do recall seeing them at woollies, but you even had me stumped for a while there! 😂😂
I'm glad I'm not the only one traumatised by the heavy bleeding during adolescence. Not that I don't still have heavy periods, I do. Was mortified one day when sil told me I had blood all over my trakkie daks, even though I had changed tampon and pad maybe 2 hours before hand. Must have been gushing that day
She did save me from school pickup like that, so I am grateful!!
To be honest I think the day I start menopause it will be a relief. Not that I'm looking forward to all the menopausal side effects, but just not having to go through heavy periods every month will be nice. Even breastfeeding twins on demand around the clock couldn't save me from my period, which came back at about 10 weeks post partum.
