Do you use pads, tampons or a combination? Which brand do you think is best?

I tend to just use pads and find that Always with wings are the best. They have ones for overnight that are the best I've ever used. I try to stay away from generic and scented products as I have found I get irritated from them.

I use a menstrual cup and love it! If I do use pads or tampons, I use organic ones. I just feel better about using cotton without any pesticides since it's inserted in to my body. Cotton is a pretty dirty product.

None of the above, menstrual cups are FAR better than tampons or pads.

Cups are internal like tampons but safer and cleaner so no risks of TSS, vaginal infections, increased cramps, increased bleeding, or long-term risks of dioxin - thus you can wear cups for 12 hours, with any flow, before your period, overnight, and no need to alternate with pads so far more convenient. Cups hold far more flow than tampons and pads combined plus have light suction so don't leak like tampons or pads. Plus they're cheaper, greener, more comfortable, easier to use, ethical, and have a whole bunch of other benefits.

I currently use a Ladycup, but my favourite brand is probably Mooncup
