I'm thoroughly disappointed with myself for not hopping on this train sooner. These have been a serious godsend for me. Tampons were always super uncomfortable for me and made my cramps worse. My cramps aren't nearly as bad and these are super comfortable. I was a bit nervous at first to use them because I didn't know if I could get it situated properly but, surprisingly, I got the hang of it pretty quickly! In short, I will never use anything else!
