Haha I don't understand how you can be content using pads.

But be honest... is anyone every content on their period?

The whole being bloated/moody/a bitch part outweighs the cosmetic part for me personally...

oh god, i think i have something wrong with me.
when im on it, the 4 days that i am.. im actually quite happy

its the week or more before AND after when I get all moody.

but then again, im always having major mood swings.

its like having your period 26 days out of 30 or 31 without actually being on it for me....

ok, first of all, I started using tampons at 13 and didn't start having sex until 18, so trust me, it's just a matter of getting used to them.

and TSS is sooooooooo not something to worry about. it's super rare. I ALWAYS, REGULARLY leave the tampons on the last few days of my cycle in for 24 hours if not more, been doing this for 10 years, and have NEVER had any problems.

I totally understand tampons being scary, but I PROMISE you all, once you get used to it, the discomfort of pads is what becomes scary.

You've left them in for more than 24 hours

Why do the packages always stress the "No more than 8 hours"...

^ B/C your risk of TSS goes up dramatically after the 8 hr. mark...

I can't imagine leaving a tampon in for 24 hrs...
esp. at the end of my cycle when the flow isn't very heavy...
also b/c I like to change my tampon if I ever get any urine on the string

This thread is amazing. Where else could we all talk so freely about stuff like this?

me and my friend have weird conversations about our periods, and we even know when each other gets them/supposed to get them

I'm sorry, but this is a really bad idea. I know you haven't had any problems, but there's always a first.

^Totally agree. Like I said in my earlier post, I got TSS, and I didn't even leave it for over 6 hours.
Although it is a rare condition, I wouldn't risk leaving one in for 24+ hours, that's just insane.

Oh, and thinking about it now lol, maybe TSS isn't really that rare?

I mean, what are the odds that there are 2 of us in this very thread that have had or have known someone close who's had it. Hmm.

Seanut, did your mother recover okay?
