I never let my period stop me from riding. Usually I wear pads because that's what I'm more comfortable with, but sometimes tampons as well.

Yeah I agree with you most. But I actually have never tryed tampons... Freaky huh?

I use tampons, just because trotting and cantering would be terrible with pads.. chafing..

Most times, not riding during that time isn't an option. I could never get by with just a pad, my flow is too heavy. I used to use tampons and a light pad together but now I use a Diva Cup and pad instead of a tampon. Much more comfortable. The pad is just in case I can't get to a bathroom the instant that I need to empty the cup, sometimes my bathroom breaks have to wait until I am at a stopping place. LOL.

Well since my job is riding I can't really not turn up to work one week a month now can I?! LOL I use tampons - its just easier, especially when I'm on horse after horse after horse - and they are young horses so I end up in some strange positions.
I always have one heavy day so I plan my pill to have that on one of my days off on the weekend (and f I'm competing I plan it for the other day) just to make things easier on myself

I have this amazing thing called the Diva's Cup. It is great. I don't feel it at all. You can keep it in for 12 hours with no problem. It can be gross at first, but not anymore gross than a tampon. At least that's how I feel. It is much more comfortable to wear the cup than tampons or a pad. The tampon seems to rub on the inside and hurts. The pad gets all bunchy and you can get major leaks. In all honesty, I never feel the cup at all. It does take some practice on getting it in and taking it out, but sooooo much more comfortable and totally worth it.

Here's the website: Home - The DivaCup, an innovative menstrual cup the best alternative to Tampons and Pads

If you have any questions, I have no problem with answering them.

I don't really notice discomfort that much, unless I'm working with one that's bucking and acting a fool. (just like a couple weeks I just ignore it. I wear a pad and tampon so that I don't have to worry about leaks or anything.

I don't let my period change my life. Besides, I can't exactly just not ride for 1 weeks every month. I only use pads, I really don't notice it while I ride. Actually, excercising during your period is healthy, I always feel better after a ride or at least a long walk
