I can't tell you how relieved this thread has made me feel. I thought I must of been the only woman out there ruining my underpants monthly with blood when I used pads. With or without wings the pads always mess up and leak.
I'm a big fan of tampons but I remember reading somewhere that you shouldn't use them 24/7 during your period for some reason. So I break up 2 tampons to 1 pad. If anyone can clarify for me that would be great.
I hate pads. I can "smell" me. I ruin my underpants. The packaging is so obvious. It's almost impossible to be discreet. The noise you make opening up or pulling off a pad. Plus can anyone feel themselves rustling when they walk?

My sister hates pads with wings, I prefer period pads with wings but my liners have no wings.

yes!!! the rustling!!! my work is super quiet and I can sometimes hear myself rustling. so I have to cough to cover it up 😂
also hate the noise of unwrapping them in public toilets but that's a minor thing compared to the rustling.
I used to bleed very heavily when I was in high school so I'd need a super tampon then back it up with a giant maxi pad. when the tampon started leaking after an hour or 2 onto the pad, I'd go take it out and just go with the pad til I had a chance to discreetly refuel my supplies.
all my undies these days are mostly black so even if I did leak, it's not super obvious. but it's still yucky.

Yes, I rustle. I would also need to change a tampon every 30 minutes if I didn't wear pads as well, so it's a sacrifice I need to make. I'm being very candid tonight, aren't I?
I don't care about the packaging though. I'm a woman. I get my period.

Count me in as a pads with wings girl.
Something has gone awry since having my DS. And tampons just don't feel right anymore and I seem to have more of a leakage issue than before.
This may have something to do with previously having a 2-3 day period to suddenly wondering if I'm having some kind of hemorrhage for 5-7 days a month.
So for now it's pads with wings, even if I'm a bit weirded out by buying a brand of pad with the same name as my son!
I have the same bunching, scrunching, rustling, smell freak outs as everyone else!

@GucciDahling I've had those same problems with tampons too after dd1 was born. I actually started a thread about it but only got one or two responses as I was worried about the leakage and wondering if I could ever use them again.
I've only had my period a handful of times in 3.5 years so I still don't know if it'll ever get back to tampon use again
