What to use during my menstrual cycle

I'm 26 years old and I'm having some problems with my menstrual cycle, not really the cycle itself but more of what to use during it. I've been using tampons but they dry me out really bad and hurt me. The first time I put them in I'm fine but when I go to put the second one in it hurts me really bad. Yes, I'm putting them in right and far enough and so forth but they dry me out. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas on what to do? I've been told to try some organic tampons, ones that aren't scented or have anything on them because the scented ones and/or playtex and so

I go pretty hard during that time so the tampon isn't dry. Yes I use applicators and I'm putting them in right. But the tampons are still drying me out. Yes, Ive heard all these solutions and they don't help. I guess I'll try else where for help. Thanks anyways.

The ? is -- how heavy is your flow?

Oh gosh, I know what you mean!

I've read that putting a little dab of KY Jelly on the end of the tampon can help with an easier insertion.
