Well it looks like I will be off to get me a mooncup then. Anything has got to be better than clogging up landfills with tampons and towels, or paddling with the kids down the coast and dodging the towels. Yuk.
still struggling to erm, get to grips with mine . I find it hard to retrieve sometimes and one month it just hurt to have it in there. I've had it about 5 months. I am determined to stick with it (bl*y thing cost eighteen quid!!) and for the enviro reasons but I am not as wild about it as others [hmmm]
it took me a long time to get used to my mooncup, a year tbh, and I now love it, but I found it uncomfortable to use to start with, kept snipping away at it, this year I love it, I am relaxed using it now, and really all other sanpro is horrible in comparison to the mooncup imo
Mooncups are nothing like tampons. I could never get on with tampons. That awful dragging sensation, and the soreness of removing one when flow was light. Makes my teeth itch just thinking about it! It's an amazing thing. No having to worry about buying sanitary towels or tampons.
