Most comfortable tampon?

I am in my last years of Peri, on my way to Menopause. In my younger days, I could wear ANY tampon and feel comfortable.
But now that I am dryer inside, I can feel the tampons inside me.
And my blood flow is so uneven , one day heavy, one day light, I never know what to expect.
What tampons, do you ladies find comfortable during these years of change?!!

Pads, yuck!!! I just don't want to go there!
Its like I need a lubricated tampon now, which is possible when I am at home ,and have something in my bathroom. But of and about, not so much!

This is just not, a fun time of life!!!!! And this is saying nothing of the hot flashes, etc etc.

Re: Most comfortable tampon?

hi mamasan2007!
i completely understand your angst when it comes to tampons and pads during these years of our lives. i have also been trying to find tampons that are comfortable but have failed miserably. pads are driving me absolutely insane and my daughter is absolutely sick of hearing about my hot flashes and vaginal dryness!!! so i switched gynos and the one i am seeing now actually recommended me the softcup (disposable menstrual cup) because it doesn't cause dryness and it's so comfortable. i've been using it for two months now... they are disposable. but i only have to wear two a day. if you haven't found the right tampon yet, you might want to give the softcup a shot! good luck!
