There are mixed opinions on this topic everywhere on the internet. Some prefer pads as a traditional method of hygiene while some swear by using tampons. In recent years, menstrual cups have gained a large audience. People love the idea of using something that is environmental friendly and that is re-usable.
I think it is really your choice, choose something that you are confident and comfortable with. Usually, tampons are not advised to be used overnight. It can be used during the day. It is always good to be open and try new and safe options. I am thinking about trying the cups in future.
