Favorite pads and super duper tampons?

Hello Sisters,
I am having one of the heaviest bleeding days since this fibroid thing started affecting my life less than three months ago. I didn't know there was such thing as a "super plus" tampon until I started to need them lately. Today I bled through at least four, they lasted about an hour each. Yay for me. I found a pad I pretty much like, but would like a bit more security in a pad on days like these. Thought I would bring the question to the experts; what products do you swear by?

I am scheduled for UFE at the end of July. Until then I just have to find a way to make it through these kinds of days.

I guess this would be directed at United States gals as the products in the UK and elsewhere are different. I would love to know what you all have to say. Thanks, ladies!

Re: Favorite pads and super duper tampons?

I like the Always Overnites with wings. The WalMart veresion "Equate" is just as good as the name brand and a couple dollars cheaper.

They are long and the wings keep them secured when you're moving around. I used to have to wear one along with my super plus tampons. I'd go through a set of those anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour for an entire day! So glad I don't have to deal with that anymore!

I ended up using tena bladder control pads. I would double them up back to back or side to side. These measures would buy a bit of time to get to the bathroom. I needed to be creative with my wardrobe. To be honest my next option was going to be adult diapers. Good luck with your UFE. Hang in there

Thanks for the tip! Oh yes I'm doubling up w/ tampons and pads. Right now I'm using. Always Infinity w/ FlexFoam pads with wings. I've never been a fan of pads so I had to get up to speed. I bought some other pads and hated the way they stuck to my undersides, so I just went back to the Always ones. I'll check out the Walmart version!

I was wondering about the bladder leakage type products for this purpose, I swear I might get some Depends! Tonight I was visiting at my daughter's friends home and felt the leak coming on and we were about to sit on the light colored couch. I was freaking out! So I stood near their little dog in the kitchen and pretended to want to play with the dog. Ugh. Normally for the summer I wear white shorts almost daily. Not this summer. It's black bottoms on a daily basis! Thanks for the tip!

I used the Tena overnight bladder control pads. I could actually sleep for s but before I had to change it.

Re: Favorite pads and super duper tampons?

I use the Always Infinity with wings too. They are comfy and hold a lot providing security. However, it's not been enough for the last few months so I tried one of my moms adult pull ups over my own underwear with a super duper tampon and the Always pad. It has helped tremendously, especially at night as I could not get the mere 8 feet from the bed to the potty without it running down my legs. I am set for a Total hysterectomy (I don't know the acronyms) on Wednesday (6/17/15) and I'm sooo ready as I started my period again last night. I swear my ovaries know and they had to show their attitude ONE MORE TIME. Hugs to you and the next month will pass quickly!

Re: Favorite pads and super duper tampons?

My favorite product was called "Instead." They are cups that you wear internally, kind of like a diaphragm. They hold a lot! You can use a pad a back-up protection, if needed.

You can also pull it out, wash it and re-use it, so if you're ever stuck somewhere without supplies, you're still ok.

OMG today I went out w/ my DH and DD and this was the heaviest day ever. I bled out in every store we went to. Some places even twice. It would have been better if I just sat on the toilet and waited for several minutes. I bought several large packages of overnight pads, Tena pads, super + tampons, etc. at Walmart today. I need to buy at least another pair of black lose shorts to hide my pads in!

Good luck w/ the surgery, I know you are going to be relieved of this ridiculousness. Less than a week to go, I'm so happy for you!!!

I don't know if that would even hold what is happening to me today. I bled through more super + tampons and pads than I can even count. But I had heard about a think like that for regular menstrual flow, a Diva Cup? Probably very similar. Thanks for the info!
