I guess I am just here to complain, because I don't know what anyone can do for me at this point.
Tampons have never worked right, and it's such a pain.
I am over forty and have been trying to use them for 25+ years now. (I am not an idiot, so I'm pretty sure I've been doing what I'm supposed to according to the directions.) They always leak, and it's not that the tampon is full, the leakage happens on one side when the other side has nothing on it. I have a tilted cervix, and after some internet research, it seems that might be the issue, but who knows. This is coming from the internet after all.
It's actually a life-altering problem. No swimming for a week every month. I don't exercise at the gym for a few days every month because pads just don't cut it when I'm moving around so much. It's so frustrating. I wish I could use a tampon!
Anybody going through the same thing? Anyone overcome this?
