I got an ad from a store I was at for this brand of organic cotton pads and tampons. Anyone heard of it? It sounds like something good. Especially if you use tampons like me. take a look and let me know what you think.<br><br><a href="http://www.natracare.com/products/the_natural_choice.htm" target="_blank">http://www.natracare.com/products/th...ral_choice.htm</a>

Yes, I have been using this brand of the applicator-less tampons for many years. I love them! Highly Recommended!</div>

I am going to see if store that gave out the ad has them. I use tampons a lot. I used to use tampax compak, but have been using o.b. How much does a box cost?

I can't remember for sure. I buy mine at Whole Foods that there is no price on the boxes I have right now.<br><br><br><br>
It depends on which ones you get too. The regular (they come in super too) applicatior-less ones are like OB (I used to use those too) - You get 20 to a box - I want to say it was around $4 a box.

I use the pads (with wings!), not the tampons, but I love them. They feel so much better than the plastic pads.

I just got the regular tampons. 4.99. but I fugured, I ought to. I use tampons a lot and these seem better. I got them as a 'specialty' pharmacy. I don't know why it's called that. it is like a pharmacy that would correspond to a health food store lol. good little place though.

I have some of these. I usually use my DivaCup though, with a pantyliner, as it's been having slight leaks once in a while. User error, I'm sure.

I've used the tampons, but I didn't find them to be as absorbant as Tampax. For lighter days, the super or super-plus was okay, but they couldn't handle heavier flow. I've switched to the Diva Cup now, and it's great. I would recommend it to anyone who's tired of spending money on pads and/or tampons!

Amy- you said you use the pads? How do they make them? are they thin? Also, have you used the pantiliners?</div>
</div>
<br><br><br>
I don't know how they're made - they're all cotton, though. And they're very thin. But not too thin that they don't absorb. And no, I haven't used the pantiliners. I bought a huge box of Kotex pantiliners recently and I don't use them that often, so I'm still going through the box.

Ah, ok. As long as they are thin. I need to get back to using pads once in a while. I use tampons like 90% of my period. But I can't stand pads. Yea, by how are they made, I kind of meant concerning the thinness, not how they make them. sorry about that, it didn't make sense.

Make sure to get the "ultra" ones with wings - the regular ones don't look thin, they look like standard maxi pads.<br><br><br><br>
I personally love natracare, and wont buy anything else. In fact, the "regular" pads I had been using, added some blue coloring to it to make it look "high tech", and I was ALLERGIC to it!!!! That was horrible let me tell you. Natracare is the only kind of pad I've found to be perfectly safe for me. I use their tampons as well, my flow is on the light side usually, and I find them perfectly sufficient.

I just bought the slender pads ut without wings. I forgot to ask for them. I also bought the pantiliners, but I don't think I like the shape. Has anyone used them? They are kind of shirt, and just straight. not with an hourglass curve like the other ones i have been using. Are the panti shields any different? What is the difference?

i also use the pantiliners, they work fine but I'm not in love, hehe. I dont like the adhesive on them. my local HFS doesnt sell the pantyshields (or the thin maxis without wings!), let me know if you end up getting them and liking them, because I'd ask my HFS to stock them.

I used them on occasion before getting my diva. They worked fine for me-- I just bought whatever was the cheapest or on sall when I went shopping, so I can't say that I prefered them.<br><br><br><br>
7th generation has great pads-- I've never used there tampons. I got a whole bunch of $1 off coupons for 7th generation products back around earth day, so I don't remember them being to expensive. Prob. the best pads I have ever used. (very very thin yet soak up a lot and stay in place all day)

Ah..I just now saw this thread. I use the tampons from this company, but I've found that the pads kinda sucked. They didn't absorb well and they were a bit uncomfortable in addition to that. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I had to return the pads and pantiliners i got because theer is not enough adhesive to keep it flat on your undies, so it bunched up andwas a leak waiting to happen. Wings may make it better though. And I will ask the person at the store i got them about the pantishields. maybe they are better than the liners.

I use cloth washable pads and find they are absorbant and don't slide about and are economical because you reuse them month to month.

with wings. they snap around the panties.<br><br><br><br>
i bought my set about 6 or 7 years ago. still going strong. the original pay out was $50 or so. saved lots of cash and reduced lots of waste this way. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
there are also reuseable 'tampons,' etc.
