blahhh
anyone else have problems with tampons?
When i'm on my period. I very rarely have cramps and it's never all that heavy.
But I tried wearing tampons just for like 2 times this last time I was on my period. And I cramped up so bad and it was like superrr heavy.
So i thought I was dying and took it out. Then the cramps calmed down.
Anyone else have this problem? and do you know what's going on?
xD

You know what's creepy;
Back when my username was "missmerm" (about 4 years ago), I commented in this thread on page 3 saying "I'm 10 and I'm scared I might get mine soon."

Well... I actually did get my period that year.

Got this in an email; I figured this was the best place to share it. XD It's supposed to be an actual letter someone sent to the director of Always pads.

Dear Mr Thatcher,

I have been a loyal user of your 'Always' maxi pads for over 20 years and I appreciate many of their features. Why, without the Leak Guard Core or Dri-Weave absorbency, I'd probably never go horseback riding or salsa dancing, and I'd certainly steer clear of running up and down the beach in tight, white shorts. But my favorite feature has to be your revolutionary Flexi-Wings. Kudos on being the only company smart enough to realize how crucial it is that maxi pads be aerodynamic. I can't tell you how safe and secure I feel each month knowing there's a little F-16 in my pants.

Have you ever had a menstrual period, Mr. Thatcher? Ever suffered from the curse'? I'm guessing you haven't. Well, my time of the month is starting right now. As I type, I can already feel hormonal forces violently surging through my body. Just a few minutes from now, my body will adjust and I'll be transformed into what my husband likes to call 'an inbred hillbilly with knife skills. Isn't the human body amazing?

As Brand Manager in the Feminine-Hygiene Division, you've no doubt seen quite a bit of research on what exactly happens during your customers' monthly visits from 'Aunty Flo'. Therefore, you must know about the bloating, puffiness, and cramping we endure, and about our intense mood swings, crying jags, and out-of-control behavior . You surely realize it's a tough time for most women. In fact, only last week, my friend Kayla fought the violent urge to shove her boyfriend's balls into a George Foreman Grill just because he told her he thought Grey 's Anatomy was written by drunken chimps. Crazy!

The point is, sir, you of all people must realize that America is just crawling with homicidal maniacs in Capri pants... Which brings me to the reason for my letter. Last month, while in the throes of cramping so painful I wanted to reach inside my body and yank out my uterus, I opened an Always maxi-pad, and there, printed on the adhesive backing, were these words: 'Have a Happy Period.'

Are you fu*ing kidding me? What I mean is, does any part of your tiny middle-manager brain really think happiness -- actual smiling, laughing happiness is possible during a menstrual period? Did anything mentioned above sound the least bit pleasurable? Well, did it, James? FYI, unless you're some kind of sick S&M freak girl, there will never be anything 'happy' about a day in which you have to jack yourself up on Motrin and Kahlua and lock yourself in your house just so you don't march down to the local Walgreen's armed with a hunting rifle and a sketchy plan to end your life in a blaze of glory.

For the love of God, pull your head out, man! If you just have to slap a moronic message on a maxi pad, wouldn't it make more sense to say something that's actually pertinent, like 'Put down the Hammer' or 'Vehicular Manslaughter is Wrong', or are you just picking on us?

Sir, please inform your Accounting Department that, effective immediately, there will be an $8 drop in monthly profits, for I have chosen to take my maxi-pad business elsewhere And though I will certainly miss your Flexi-Wings, I will not for one minute miss your brand of condescending bullsh*t. And that's a promise I will keep. Always....

God I love that email. XD

My ex roommate M. claims that she has polycystic ovarian syndrome, and said this excused her using my (MY!!) pack of Always pads up. I'm sorry, but if you really had it, you wouldn't have gone to class, you wouldn't have been able to get out of bed. Instead you were out partying, drinking, flirting with every male that came your way, and complaining about how you never have your homework done when the reason is, well, read my previous sentence. O_o

My periods have gotten better since my earlier posts in this thread and I'm happy to say that my moodswings have basically vanished.



I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!

You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!

Oh my Miranda! LOL I'd probably say the same thing! XD
I started my period in the 7th grade. So glad it started when I was at home. Anyways I never mustered up the courage to try tampons until last year. It hurt at first, but now I don't really notice it.
First I'd like to say how sorry I am for the excruciating pain us women must go through month after month. We have to go through birth, you'd think that would be enough!
Second, although I have experienced PMS pains, I hardly have any. When I first started everything hurt. Now when it starts I have mild back pain and cramps the first day and after that it's pain free!

Oh, I get TERRIBLE PMS. I break out, feel like I'm ketting kicked in the ut.er.us from all the cramps, start craving salt and sweet (take fives are my savior...chocolate covered pretzels and caramel and peanut butter, yumm...but otherwise I almost never like chocolate that much), and go into awful mood swings. Like, I feel physically more depressed on a monthly basis, and my mother and family and friends notice the shift in my attitude. It's not fun to deal with.

Even though I use tampons (and pads cause no matter what they tell you, tampons will. leak.), one of my biggest fears is getting TSS. I mean, I take precautions like often replacing them and all, but it's always there in the back of my mind....

I got mine 2 days after my 17th birthday, just went to the toilet and saw it on my underpants. I was a late bloomer because I have a physical disability and medical conditions. I can't have kids naturally because of my lack of developed abdominal muscles but it's good to get a period as its a sign that my eggs may be viable for surrogacy I use pads.

My period started when I was eleven. It was after a swimming practice in the changing rooms, so not the best circumstances.

I always hear about people having horrible cramps and feeling sick and moody, but I've never really experienced this. Instead I get my period for at the very least a whole week, and the first few days are so heavy that I've yet to find any pads that I don't have to change all the time to keep up with my flow. I probably should start using tampons, but they've never appealed to me and I've heard enough horror stories to get put off for the time being.

Periods are different in nearly every girl. My friend has to go home from school because of sickness and cramps. I just get backache from standing too much and get uncomfortable from the feeling of sitting down. I suppose I'm lucky in that way, but to not have to change my sheets most days because my pad wasn't as strong as I thought it would be would be amazing.

Try having super awful cramps (I've thrown up in pain and once I was so dizzy I almost passed out), a heavy flow, getting incredibly moody, and it lasting for a week.

That's me. >_> FML.
