For the Ladies - No More Tampons!

This is not a post for the squeamish (although I dont necessarily plan on posting anything about blood and gore....) I just couldnt live with myself if I didnt share this with everyone....

I saw a post on a blog a few months ago from a gal in the UK. I cant for the life of me remember the blog name.... Anyway she was talking about this thing called a Mooncup. Basically it was a menstrual cup. You use it in place of tampons or pads. I was intrigued so I read on...

It costs between $20 and $25. There are 2 sizes (one if you are 30 or younger and havent had a child vaginally and another if you are over 30 and/or have had a child vaginally.). It is similar to other menstrual cups Divacup and Softcup.

I liked the fact that the Mooncup was made with medical grade products and you could reuse it cycle after cycle (Some women have said they can be used up to 10 years! Not sure Id recommend that long...). If I switched to this from the tampons I usually used I wouldnt be putting all kinds of chemicals in my body (literally - scented tampons... really?!?) AND with tampons being between $5 - $10 a box and 1 box per cycle I could save some serious $$$!

So, I ordered it from Amazon. I had nothing to lose (except $20).... I had to wait a few weeks to try it, but once I did, I was hooked. I was worried Id be able to feel it like tampons, but you cant! Its awkward at first and it takes a few tries to get used to, but this is the best thing ever! It doesnt leak and you can wear it up to 12 hours before emptying it!

I cant say enough good things about it. I highly recommend giving it a try.
