Tampons vs menstrual cup

Hey everyone! Just curious, I've used tampons since starting my period in high school. As I've gotten older my cramps have gotten way worse and I read that using a menstrual cop could help cramps. I had success using one my last period for the first time but wanted to know what GLOW users think! What do other women use? Tampons? Pads? Cup? If you use a cup, have you had success with it? How so?
