I've always flushed tampons. Feel guilty now and may stop.

That's very interesting, thanks for your contribution.

But anyway, do you bin or flush spambot?




ANYWAY - I've tried to remember very very hard, and I've realised I haven't ever even been tempted to flush a tampon. The waste at my old school was flushed into the sea so they asked us not to do it there because of it.

So eventually I might be converted from tampons.

I keep meaning to try the mooncups. But I'm not sure I'd be comfortable inserting/removing them. Took me a long time to be happy with tampons and then I still will only use the applicator ones. Plus I'm very unsqueamish about blood but menstrual blood creeps me out a bit.

I've been holding off, but I have to ask. If you use a mooncup, what happens if it like tilts a bit inside you and it all pours out?

I like the idea of mooncups and could probably be converted, if someone could assure me that the above mentioned fear was not feasible :P

They are soft, so you fold them to insert and they aren't much bigger than a tampon. There are heaps of types of folds, I just use the basic one called a c fold - if you youtube it I think there are videos.

It won't tilt, as it suctions to the walls of your vagina, so it moves with your body. You just make sure it pops open since you will have folded it to insert. I've never had a single drop leak, right from day one. They hold heaps and heaps more than the biggest tampons.

Menstrual cups are not all made equal - there are many different brands and they all come in different sizes and softness. I strongly recommend you search for menstrual cups livejournal site - there is a big community on this page with heaps of info and help. There are also size charts made by a menber which are incredibly helpful. As a rule, you need to know where your cervix is when you're on your period - if it's high you can go with a longer, narrower cup but if it's low you will want a shorter, wider cup as it will sit up around your cervix. I would suggest a softer cup to start with, they can be harder to pop open but are less scary I reckon. Personally I use Lunette small ones, they are soft, short and middling width. And they come in pretty colours! The UK mooncup, popular as it's a well known brand, is from memory quite stiff and long compared to other brands so is potentially not right for most beginners. This is a shame as I think it puts a lot of people off.

*TMI*
My cervix is low, so I used to get this horrible pain when sitting down when my tampon would "bump" it - now my cup sits up around it and is soft silicone and is honestly a million times more comfy - I literally forget it's in there sometimes.

Lovely! Heh.

I'm actually tempted to convert to the tampon religion, just to flush them down the loo.

Flush! Definitely. Unless you're at an old house because apparently that makes it more likely to cause problems.

I quite like the idea of Mooncups etc but I don't think I could deal with the blood. I'm really not great with blood at the best of times (yeah...I know).

And LOL Festive Period *calculates*

I'm tempted to try a cup because i can no longer use tampons due to childbirth related stitching meaning there's nothing to hold one in, but as a cup has suction it might work.

There's really not that much blood - even if you have a "heavy" flow, it's unlikely to be more than 5-10 mls in a whole day - 1 to 2 teaspoons. The average for a whole period is only about 30 mls - about two tablespoons.
I felt the same, but honestly it's really not gross and the benefits are amazing! I'd hate to go back to tampons and I acutally find a used tampon with the horrible bloody string far more gross than a couple of mls of blood.

What is vag plus? I thought I read everything and couldn't find it but I might have missed it?

Is it wrong that I find it quite interesting how much 'blood' is in a period? I swear it seems like much more than that!!!!!

I wonder if that might be that tampon/sanitary towel adverts make it seems like there's more because they're trying to advertise how absorbent their products are.

I've been looking into mooncups, are they very much bigger than a tampon? I'm just wondering as I've heard that the insertion and removal can be uncomfortable for women who are smaller physically.

I sat and worked out how much blood you lose in a life time (the average woman) whilst having your period the other day. There was a fully legit reason that I can't quite remember, but yeah. I love threads about periods. I used to hate talking about them, but now I'm not fussed. I think lesbianism has a part to play in being able to talk about them, you kinda have to :P

Jenna, you can wish me a festive period if you like when the time comes.

And I'll always flush tampons. We have three toilets and only two women in my house, the bathroom bins don't need emptied often enough to be able to bin. I'd be mortified if there was any... unpleasantness because if binned my used tampons :/




Now I'll play your ghost as my ace, whenever I'm led astray.
But I am actually good, can't help it if we're tilted.
I'm in my right place, don't be a downer.

No, because you fold them to insert and remove. There are a few different ways to fold and some make the cup thinner than others - it's hard to explain but basically you can fold them so that they have a thin, pointy end bit, or you can just fold them in half then in half again, if you get my drift. So basically they end up like inserting something the same diameter as a tampon.

I'm quite small built, and I could only ever use the tiniest mini tampons. But I can use a cup no trouble. When I first opened the packet I was like "no way" but honestly it's easy, and so much more comfy than tampons! Plus you can wet them with water first (or water based lube, I think) which makes them acutally so much easier to insert than trying to get a nasty dry lump of cotton up there!

But like I said before, I really encourage you to look at the livejournal site about cups and choose a smaller, squishier one to try first. Diva cups from memory are one of the longest cups available, for instance, so although they are a well-known brand they're not suitable for everyone and I would hate someone to be put off for life because they tried a brand that it wasn't right for them.

A few of the better known brands off the top of my head are Mooncup (UK), Mooncup (USA), Diva cup, Lunette, Fleurcup, and Femmecup. Mooncup and Femmecup are both English, but the others are all easily ordered online and online is often much cheaper than in shops. If you look around their websites you can check out their measurements.

that its heart may stand in the sun,
so must you know pain.
