Seriously, do women still use these things?! LOL I mean they are invaluable for women after childbirth or young girls who maybe are too young or don't want to use an insertable device however, when afforded the option between this or that, why anyone would choose these is beyond my comprehension. Nonetheless, sanitary napkins many times are uncomfortable to wear often feeling like a diaper, they often don't fit in any modern 'cute' underwear, the adhesive can stick to you instead of your panties and these can not be worn to go swimming or if you're a lingerie model. I do still see the value of a panty liner for a protective layer when you are not sure exactly when your menses might show up but you know it should be today or tomorrow for example and no one wants to go through the trouble of inserting and wearing any of the other options listed here if they aren't actually bleeding yet or having to soak they're undies after an unexpected yet expected guess. Otherwise pads are the worst other than in very particular circumstances!
