    Thanks for this thread as I have never heard of them either!!! I checked it out after reading it in the other thread. Where do you buy them and what is the cost?

    I'm glad i wasnt the only one! Thankyou all for your replies. I think i can understand why people really like them once they've successfully tried them (they do look a little scary though) but i'm not sure i understand the shorter/lighter flow- perhaps not for everyone but what a great bonus!! Also the reduced pain surprises me. I didnt really equate period pain to use of tampons/pads?
    I saw on one website you can get them in funky colours

    I love mine. Mines a mooncup, purchased online for $45. I'll never go back to tampons now....dangerous things.

    Cups are clean, hygenic and very easy to use. I used to have 7 day periods with terrible cramps. That changed to 3-4 days using a cup, and next to no cramps. They do take a few tries to figure out how to use, but once you get positioning right you're set!

    A little gross for some, but it's a bit amazing to see the changes in your menstrual blood over the course of your period too.

    I too had to google menstrual cups after seeing them in another thread yesterday, can't believe I've never heard of them! Don't think they're my cup of tea though.

    Yep ... me too! I spent a lot of time looking at them on various websites yesterday as I had never heard of them before reading that thread either. I can't really use tampons so I wonder if they would work for me but it might be worth giving it a go?

    I use a lunette cup and cloth pads. Well I did between my bubs and will when AF returns. The whole cup concept freaked me out initially but once I tried it I will never go back. I found using the cup a little tricky at first and had to do some research and learn my own anatomy a bit more. They are really cost effective too as they last for years. As I said in the other thread, I wish I had known about them much earlier!

    After i had DS1 i tried to use a tampon with my first postpartum period. It was poking things it shouldnt have been poking and hurts so much. I was scared to use the cup in case the same thing happened. But it didnt hurt at all. A tampon pokes the cervix, the cup creates a seal around the outside.

    My Lunette cost me $70 i think in a pack. But Lunette is having a sale atm $48 for one, and they come in colours.

    MyMeLuna is my favourite, purchased for $25 from femininewear, a uk site.
