Just In Case

I finally gave up and bought a something I wanted for a long time. No, I am not into green mind to save the Earth. However, I do care about the mother nature but not the way like other people who forbid the general public to cut trees they own. Furthermore, stopping people to do anything in their own property because it has wet lands. They own the land, I can care less what they do with it. That is a given right from our constitution. With that said, let me continue what is this post is about...whew what a disclaimer.

I bought a menstrual cup just in case I can't afford to buy pads or other feminine products in the future. If you don't know what it is, google it under images and you'll see what they look like. I was having second thought for a longest time because there is warning about women that uses IUD (if you don't know this one, google it too). I post at the forum where I belong however, none answered my question because I hardly post there. I come into conclusion that I am not part of the IN crowd who constantly post there.

Nonetheless, I know about a bravejournal site that talks about menstrual cups. I saw a post there about my worries. Women with IUD use the cup and don't have any problem. So, I went ahead and order mine from an English site. I bought Lunnette menstrual cup because I heard so much positive feedback about them. This one is a little pricey however, the feedbak sold me.

I am not very fond of using pads or tampons. Pads...yuck and with tampons the shock syndrome thing. I did use tampon when going swimming but the cup can do both. I did not have to worry about this thing before getting married and when I was having babies. I don't get the time of the month every month not until I got the copper IUD. Now my time of the month is regular. I really don't mind it before because I only get it like twice a year or less. Now every month is the same thing.

I can't wait to try it, they said it takes a few try before getting it perfect. I would recommend this to everyone. If you want to try it out CVS sell the disposable ones. I don't recommend this to virgins because it will tear your hymen. Furthermore, if you don't care about a piece of skin, go right ahead.

Hello there! thank you for sharing this. I haven't tried tampons either. I "googled" menstrual cups and I guess I need this one too.. it kills me everytime I throw away my napkins or my baby's disposal diapers, thinking another garbage I am contributing.

This sounds really interesting. A good timing too cuz I'm gonna visit my obgyne tomorrow. I'll ask her about this if she knows a good brand.

Thanks! ^^
