Thank you for the info Mindy! I've been talking about making my own pads recently because we are FINALLY going to be using cloth for my daughter. My grandma made a good portion of the ones I have and I'm sure she has left over materials! I told my mom that if my daughter gets cloth then so do I! It's not as gross as a poopy diaper to me! I wouldn't free bleed as often if I also made my own light day pads. My vagina likes to breathe! The plastic and chemicals in the pads make it sad.

Haha. We all should agree that a happy vagina is the best kind!

Personally, I tried the DivaCup for an extended time and I didn't like it. But I super <3 my GladRags, which are a washable, non-disposable flannel pad. Super comfie, super clean, super no more rash from questionable materials in trashy disposables. It's just so much better this way! :P

There's no dripping feeling, it's like a tampon but sits right under the uterus to catch things rather than absorbing the natural moisture like a tampon does. The most important thing is getting the right kind for your shape/size - a lot of people just order Diva cups because they're so easy to get, but no brand is really one size fits all. There's a whole channel on youtube about measuring yourself and how to pick the right one so you can get the proper suction etc. Cups also have no risk of TSS.

I have a moon cup, but it doesn't fit me right and I've had leaks. Currently I'm not in need of one (nursing my 5 month old and my cycle typically doesn't return till over 15 months post partum). I need to find a different one. I was also given some cloth liners. I have all the stuff to make mama cloth (since I make cloth diapers), I just haven't gotten that far...

What Mindy said. I personally use a Diva Cup and it fits me well. but not all women feel the same. there a lots of cups, just like there are lots of tampons. you just gotta weed through and find what works best for you.

A menstrual cup is more discreet than a sanitary napkin and can take up to twice as much more fluid than an ordinary tampon without changing or risk of leakage. There are different kinds of menstrual cups that are available in the market right now. There are the soft, flexible and disposable kinds. Menstrual cup way more comfortable than a tampon but it could be trickier to empty during work. There is a bit of a learning curve to using a menstrual cup in my experience, but I think it's well worth it. For more details view http://www.cupissima.com .
