    Default What do you use when AF visits?

    Wow I can't believe I've never heard of these cups. I'm really interested and have googled them. What's with the different sizes? Is the larger ones better for a heavy flow? Are the ones off eBay ok?

    I use a cup and cloth as backup too! I love that I'm not using chemical filled bits of plastic and cotton in and on my body I use the lunette cup and baby beehinds for cloth. I haven't used any other cloth so I have nothing to compare them to.
    Has anyone used cloth post labour??

    The size has nothing to do with flow... the size and shape related to YOUR size and shape internally.

    There was a great guide I found when I tried to pick the right cup for me, will see if I can hunt it down, but basically it's a good idea to have a feel as to how high/low your cervix sits when you have AF (is different during AF to other times).

    ok- so maybe not NOTHING to do with capacity- but it's more important to consider what fits and then work out how often you need to empty it from there.

    Many women report much lighter and shorter periods using the cup.
