I've tried tampons and they just don't work for me.
What should I do?

You could try a soft cup. I use these for insem's but they are suppose to be for AF. I cant wear tampons but I was able to wear these. They are a little tricky with insertion but again I couldnt feel them whatsoever.

I use a Diva Cup, I switched to the cup over 2 years ago and will never go back to anything else... So with that said, I go swimming...

I do tampons. Can't do a Diva Cup, it feels too weird.

I hate tampons. When AF came halfway through vacation, I just sat out. Inserting something up there just doesn't make me feel too comfortable. But I am not a fan of swimming either so I don't mind sitting out and catching up on some reading.

**Thank you, bokkechick, for my beautiful signature!**
