Another reusable menstrual product.. Menstrual cup
If you haven't heard, here is a good place to start: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menstrual_cup
Now after you have figured what it is and are open to the idea, here is more information:
1) What size or brand should I get?
After reading, still do not khow what is best for you?
I just found this.."Take the Cup Quiz Here!
Is it better? Or even more confusing... :)
Luckily (or unlucky?) I didn't know all this; I was over excited and bought the cup from the only place I could find locally, TinyTapir. I just bought one of the brands they carry, fortunately it works well for me
2) Where to buy?
TinyTapir carry Mooncup and Ladycup.
Many brands sell their cups online too. Here is a very good link that gives the list of websites for online purchase:
My favourite site for buying Ladycup is:
http://stores.ebay.com/LadyCup-menstrual-cups as the seller includes shipping and sometimes you get good price via Auction.
3) If you need more information, these are good places to seek help:
I am not a Tampon user and don't like it actually. But the thought of just having my cup with me that is all I need for my menses, I just can't resist the idea. Though the cloth pads are also good… but with cup, a lot less washing. So, I was determined to get the cup work for me. This effort put in will bring a lot of convenience for the many years to come. Fortunately, it turned out well for me. :)
If you continue to read till this point, maybe there is a chance that you may try the cup.. :)
Let me know if you need more information, I will try my best to help..
