Wow before the tampon thread I had not even heard of these! I'm off to google an probably buy one now, they sound awesome
lol this was me about 3 years ago - I'd never heard of them until BH, bought a lunette cup online and would never go back!
I agree that the best thing is that it doesn't 'dry you out' like tampons do, it feels so much healthier.
It does take a bit of practice to get the insertion right, but they're totally worth it.
Mine didn't work for me kept leaking (would over flow within 30min-1hr) but I'm glad I tried it I k ow they have lots of benefits over pads/tampons.
I have used a keeper (which was rubber) years ago and I have used a diva cup (was about $30 online) ever since AF returned after son#2 who is nearly four. You don't need to boil them after each flow, just wash well. I have less problems with cups then I ever did with pads and tampons. I have heavy days which means I can get a few leaks and I use panty liners with mine (just like with tampons! Except the liners are cute washable ones.) and I have saved a fortune (important to me!) and it is better for the environment, less days of blood and less pains than with disposables. Sometimes things can go a bit astray but less problems than I had with pads and tampons which certainly weren't foolproof for me, just uncomfortable and expensive.Remember getting the hang of them as a teenager? I find disposable used pads and tampons much more distasteful than dealing with the cup.
changing to using a cup was the best think I have ever done.
I have not had to buy tampons for almost a year now. I also find my cup so comfortable.
I do have occasions where it takes time to get it in to the right spot, but once done, it can not be felt at all. No string either!!!
Does anyone know any Australian sites I can buy these from?
