I watched this song

What the flippity fuck?

MeriNisipPoissons Fri 15-Jul-11 18:17:58

Don't let the song put you off it is fantastic and i have scuba dived to 40mt with mine in and no mess.

Ewwww. Have issues with the mooncup notion. Makes me boak. Obviously your choice and yes, love your vagina, love it lots and lots - but no need for a song and no need for a mooncup.

My dss are driving me mad and that song has made my day. How funny. I couldn't cope with the gory job of emptying the contents. Thankyou Howlingbitch.grin

Maybe you'll like it more with a wine!

HowlingBitch Fri 15-Jul-11 18:26:20

I have never scuba dived or is it scuba dove? grin but I do have horrible periods. Why all the boaking catgirl, What don't you like about them?

HowlingBitch Fri 15-Jul-11 18:27:30

Bahah! You're very welcome spanky! grin

Just personal dislike. Seems like a lot of "involvment" with my menstrual flow as opposed to whipping out a tampon, flushing down the loo. Not judging them - just not for me.

You flush tampons down the loo? Fwiw I'd find a mooncup a bit icky too. I don't know why.

uh, you do know you are not supposed to flush tampons don 't you???

LDNmummy Fri 15-Jul-11 18:34:49

I don't get how people have an issue with a mooncup when they don't mind stuffing a cylinder of fabric up there that will absorb the same fluids and fester.

spanky2 Fri 15-Jul-11 18:36:31

I'm going to show it to my friend to take her mind of her problems next week!

SomethingProfound Fri 15-Jul-11 18:37:00

grin I found that song hilarious and will most likely be singing it after having a few to many wine's tonight!

They clearly didn't do much research though - I didn't hear the word Fanjo shock

catgirl1976 Fri 15-Jul-11 18:38:02

I know its not ideal for the plumbing or environment but it is a lot more convenient for me and I am afraid on this one I do put myself first. I re-cycle, I do lots of other "good" things, but yes I do flush tampons.

HowlingBitch Fri 15-Jul-11 18:40:13

Each to their own I guess. It just sounds like the answer to my prayers and it's eco friendly too which is brilliant.

Meri and LD quick question because you guys use them. Because they sit lower than a tampon does that mean you can feel them more? (Probably silly but i'm just wondering)

HowlingBitch Fri 15-Jul-11 18:42:04

Fuzzy I'm sure I heard Fanjo somewhere!

peeriebear Fri 15-Jul-11 18:44:40

I still use tampons but flushing them is so irresponsible- they end up littered all over our beaches and it's just vile sad Even in pretty unspoilt places like Robin Hood's bay is spoilt by tampons washing about in the rock pools like shitty jellyfish. Boak indeed. Put them in the damn bin!!

can't even begin to explain how wonderful you feel with a mooncup instead of a tampon... so 'normal' on the outside like you haven't got a period at all... but some people are just too squeamish to try it.

neverontime Fri 15-Jul-11 18:45:18

marking my place coz i am considering a mooncup too. i'm always scared of forgetting to take tampons out.

Takver Fri 15-Jul-11 18:47:57

Howlingbitch, I can't bear tampons because of the feel, but am fine with a mooncup. It took me about 3 or 4 months to get the hang of it, but now I don't feel it at all.

neverontime Fri 15-Jul-11 18:49:11

3 or 4 months? eek. what did you have to get used to?

Belini Fri 15-Jul-11 18:49:53

well next time i'm accompanied by one of your used tampons on the beach i'll bear in mind that you recycle things then catgirl.

that will definitely make it more bearable for me

disgusting.

catgirl1976 Fri 15-Jul-11 18:55:34

Why are they sold as flushable?

Vivamus Fri 15-Jul-11 18:57:10

That video is still not a patch on this (shame I can't find the whole clip): www.fingerinthedyke.ca/were_talking_vulva_mov.html

...and I've used a menstrual cup for about 15 years now. I really cannot describe what a load off your mind it is, and I don't want to speak for Takver, but with the plastic cups, somethimes it takes a bit of a knack to get a proper seal 'round your cervix (I highly recommend the pure rubber ones as an alternative).
