Okay so I'm really trying to be more mindful of the environment. We can't stop periods (well there are pills... but I'm not on any!) So I'm trying to explore options such as the moon cup (or other varieties!) And reusable pads. Really interested to hear tips. Are reusable pads worth it? Do they leak ? Where to buy ? Moon cups.. how to I know which one to try without spending a fortune? I want to be better for the environment but haven't got masses of money to spend in one go. Any tips would be fab and appreciated!
I love my reusable pads and moon cup! Was converted a few months ago - would never go back. I started with some cheaply reusable pads off amazon, but have since bought some expensive honouryourflow ones which are better
Another Honour Your Flow fan. I have other makes, but they're nowhere near as good. HYF do a range of sizes, including night ones which are fab. No sliding. Tried a mooncup, but didn't get on with it - although think that's a consequence of having two kids. Period pains have also significantly reduced since switching.
I use honour your flow pads. They do not slide or move at all, I find. They are really soft and cushy so no more sore bits, itching or thrush after my period. I ALWAYS suffer if I have to use disposables for any reason.
If you are on FB then follow the honour your flow page - she posts regular offers.
I use cheeky wipes pads. I actually find them much more reliable leakage-wise than disposables. They are also much better for my skin and don't irritate at all. I actually find them quite comfy to wear. The only time I really struggle with them slipping is if I am in the car for a long time for some reason.
