    Yep you can swim with them, you can do pretty much any thing except have intercourse

    I bought one for my sister when she was working as a tour guide, going out to Fraser and Moreton Island for days at a time, she loved me for it!!

    If I'm out and need to empty I just wipe mine out with toilet paper or wipes (I got some special wipes with mine when I bought it) , but to be honest I have probably only doen this once or twice as don't have a heavy flowm and if I planned to go out somewhere for the day or night - I would usually do a quick loo run at home before I left.

    I have a Lunette and bought it from the Australian Lunette website (they have a great 'folding techniques' vid on there too.

    I've rarely had to empty mine when out either but when i have i've just wiped it down with toilet paper. Some people take a bottle of water in the toilet with them. You could do that or buy wipes if you felt wiping down with toilet paper wasn't enough.

    I love my MC

    It doesn't dry the vagina out, it only collects menstral fluids, so the vagina still produces its own fluids and doesn't dry out - which means only an infinitesimal chance of contracting TSS

    Flow only takes 3 or so days, not 6

    I've only ever leaked maybe once and that's cause I was in a hurry and put it in skewif

    I wipe it out with toilet paper if I need to empty it while I'm out, other wise just morning and night in the shower.

    Theres no smell at all - the one reason I HATE pads

    Greatly reduced to minimal pain

    I don't need to panic about putting 'stuff' in the rubbish and also creating landfill

    I don't need to buy pads and tampons monthly - a huuuuuuuuuge saving.

    I have a Femmecup from a UK site as it meant I could donate one to a charity at the same time

    I am really liking the sound of these!!

    Do any of you get squeamish about seeing the blood?

    I'm not so good with that sort of thing

    I just seen online $62 for one is that really how much they cost or is that an expensive one.

    I know the money would be easily recouped from not having to buy tampons but its alot to spend if i dont like it or its the wrong size etc

    I used one for the two periods before I conceived this bub, honestly I wasn't too impressed. I think I need more practice but I had leakage issues. Probably my insertion technique.

    I have one, but I still use tampons if I am at work on my heavy days as I find it really hard to insert correctly, and it leaks a lot for me. I was spending so much time in the bathrooms at work mucking around getting frustrated with it, tampons are just easier to whip out and put in for me.

    I love the cup for night times and my lighter flow days though - just pop it in in the morning and forget about it until I come home at night!
