I may be saying something really daft here.. But If pads or tampons had by products of asbestos.. Wouldn't we A. Have to dispose of them the same way asbestos is disposed off.. And B. isn't asbestos highly dangerous and requires some kind of body armour when handling? I doubt they'd be able to produce a asbestos type of product to go inside a ladies vagina..
Perhaps I've read the thread incorrectly but sounds a bit silly to me to think that pads and tampons have anything asbestos related in them?

I've heard that they can be sprayed down with a pesticide of sorts if they have been imported. No proof, just hearsay.

I would really like to hear from the cloth pad or cup using ladies....I'm sure I read in here that they swear that their period is lighter as a result of switching from pads/ tampons.

I find a cup much more comfortable to use though. It doesn't have that awful dry feeling that tampons do or that awkward feeling of being wedged in your underpants like a pad. Once you've got it in place, you don't even notice it there.

There's a whole forum section called 'Cloth Pad Mums'. It doesn't get heaps of traffic so you will probably need to find it from your main forum menu. It's in the 'health and beauty' section. If you look through the older threads there are lots of people agreeing that it does seem to lighten flow.
As I mentioned before, I seriously have no idea why or how this happens! I work in the medical field so I'm usually the biggest sceptic but I can only attest to my own experience and it does seem to happen

I'm interested in how people are 'measuring' their flow. I have been in and out of hospital over the last 3 months with recurrent hemorrhaging. Sorry for the following TMI, but loss had to be measured, every nurse and midwife would estimate completely differently. The only accurate measurement was collecting it directly. This is when I realised that my estimates were wildly inaccurate. Therefore I'm a little dubious of how people can tell that their flow is more/less.
As for the toxic pad issue, I don't believe a word of it. I have had the pleasure of wearing maternity pads 24/7 for the last 15 weeks. If there were any issues I think I would have noticed.

I couldn't give an estimate in mls or anything like that, but I can definitely tell what is heavier or lighter
