OMG buy one. I don't feel it at all, there's no strings to get in the way, no worry about pad smell and leakage, and you can sleep a full 8 without worries. It is a little messier than a tampon, but just barely... and leakage is non existent unless it's not placed right - and even then you can take it out, rinse and reposition, unlike tampons where you take it out and have to get a new one to try again. I feel cleaner during that time of the month, and don't have to spend money every month on tampons and pads - I've had mine 4 months now, the amount I spent on it just about equals what I would probably have spent on tampons and pads... and I won't spend anymore for ages. Barely messier than a tampon, so much better overall.
