Here's the problem, though: I have never, ever successfully worn tampons. No matter how high I shoved them up, the bottom would always poke me. Also they'd make me cramp shortly after insertion, and cramps are unusual for me. My best friend has the exact same issue, so I don't think it's just a matter of me inserting them wrong, or needing to try a different brand.
Has anyone here had similar tampon woes, but then were able to use a cup without issue? Also, which cup to do all think would be best for me? I'm 34, NP, and obese.
