I've been having all sorts of issues with pads and tampons. Finally got things almost under control with OB tampons, but then I had trouble finding them! So it was back to the drawing board. I had heard about Lunapads a while ago, and decided to finally check them out. BEST. IDEA. EVER. Ever since I started using Lunapads exclusively during my period, all the issues I'd been having have gone away. My periods are lighter, shorter and less painful. I recommend them all the time!
