OK, I am going to post about this even though it’s personal. Boys, this post is not for you.
I have started using something new for that grand ‘ol time of month. There are two main reasons why: 1 – There are a lot of chemicals involved with traditional pads and tampons; 2 – pads and tampons go to the landfill and that’s just gross and wrong. I know the true dirty hippie thing to do are reusable cloth pads. Cloth pads are just . . . um, not for me. (Ew. Yuck. Gross. No way.) Let me reiterate, I’m a clean hippie.
It’s called the Diva Cup. I really like it. No more worries about accidents or having ‘supplies’ with you at all times or TSS. Also, it’s cheaper in the long term.
I think this post says it best. I’d encourage you to read up on this thing and see if it is something you would be interested in trying. I’m not going to go into details about how it’s used. Their website will tell you all of that.
As far as buying this thing, I searched www.froggle.com to find the cheapest option (there are two, make sure you get the right one for you: one for pre-baby women/younger than 30 and one for post-baby women/older than 30).
That is all. 🙂
