Ladies, since most of us have our monthly periods every month, it's a must that we wear something to keep the blood from flowing. What would you prefer? Napkins or Tampons? I've never tried wearing Tampons,all I know is that it's quite elongated and it has to be inserted...I'd prefer to wear napkins, it's a little more comfortable in my opinion. How about you?

I prefer napkins. Tampons isn't popular here and also, there is a high possibility of having cervical cancer using tampons.

I wear napkins. Thinking about using tampons, but heard from some friends that it is somehow not good for the intimate organs' health. So I don't want to take the risk, and still using napkins in my life. Still some other friends use tampons, and said that it is more comfortable using it because you can move freely without worrying about the blood. I don't know, haven't tried it. But still there are the choices

I've always wanted to try tampons, but never got around to it. I have the choice of wearing tampons or napkins in my home. I always reach for the napkins though. It agrivates my husband because we spent money for the tampons and he is always asking me when will I use them. I have heard from several people. Some people say that they are uncomfortable and they hurt and some people like how they feel. Me I guess that I am just too scared to try them just yet.

definitely napkins, the quality & design of the napkins become more & more advance & comfortable nowadays, some more got colours & prints on it, hahhaha, i will rather choose napkins than tampons, coz i think it's really uncomfortable to insert something inside your private area all day...unless, u love swimming very much, even when u period, then i guess tampon is useful in this case...

What is a tampon? I think it's not available here in my country. So I definitely prefer using napkins because I am familiar with it. In your discussion I read that the tampons is somehow like a cork, which I think is not healthy because having a monthly period means your blood is being cleansed in some way. Am I making any sense, well thats what I think.
