    I use cloth pads, and have done so for years.
    They are all a few years old and going strong. The blood washes out, and the sun gets rid of any stains It really is quite hygenic despite what you could imagine! I find if i use disposable pads i get thrush every time grr :s

    I love the money i've saved too.

    I havent had a child yet (if that differs my experience)

    I use tampons because I hate the "wet" feeling. I do wear pads during sleep but wish i didnt have to. The wet/leak feeling wakes me up and im 110% of the time paranoid im leaking on my clothes, sheets or its making a mess. I simply dont trust the pad is positioned correctly!

    I am interested in the cups but am to much of a sook to spend $40 on one to see if I like it or not haha.

    Default Re: What do you use when AF visits?

    I was using tampons by day and disposable pads at night, but I recently converted to a menstrual cup (Lunette). The cup is soooo much better!

    Wish I knew about them years ago. The sooner you buy one, the more $$ you save because you stop buying disposable products.

    I would certainly be interested in some experiences on the cup.

    Does it really last 12hrs ? How do you know when to change? ( I am a very heavy person, I need something more than a super but they dont make it! )

    Does it not gross you out ? How do you manage in a public toilet, whilst out shopping? I cant imagine how I wouldnt spill it when removing it haha.

    Thanks!

    I guess as Im a 6 week cycle I really only have 8 - 9 periods per year. Sitting here Ive just worked out with tampons and over night pads it costs me approx $80 - $90 per year in supplies.

    Ive got enough supplies I could probably open a store by now! I was given oodles of them from other friends whom brought on special etc.

    What about when your out or at work and use cloth pads? Do you put the used one in your bag?? Wouldn't it be gross by end of day??

    Currently using disposable pads. I am looking at have some Cloth pads made by the time bubs come. I have been meaning to make then for like 3 years. I am only making them as we have some things around the house that could be used for it including some awesome appropriate coloured flannelette for covers.

    Would love to try a cup but not comfortable at this stage.

    Default What do you use when AF visits?

    I use a mix of tampons and pads but (this is embarrassing) when i use tampons i find i feel i need to use pads too because the tampon leaks so I wonder what the purpose of using a tampon is (other than swimming) if a pad is being worn anyway ?
