Despite being pretty squeamish about the thought of them, I'm slowly being sold the idea due to the leakfree-ness (not a word, I know).
The only major concern i have is, what if you need to change it when you are out and about. If you are in a public loo (with cubicles and a bank of communal sinks) I assume you pour the bulk of the blood into the loo pan, but what about rinsing it out ? How do you deal with it ? I'd be horrified if I was stood at the sinks and some woman stood next to me and started washing her menstrual blood down the sink.
I just wipe it out with some loo roll and re-insert and then wash it out as soon as I find somewhere appropriate.
I agree that washing it out in the sink in public is really taking things a step too far!!
While we're asking... a while ago I bought a Keeper but found it v inflexible and hard to insert - is the mooncup a little softer? I seem to remember someone saying it had silicone in it and was therefore more flexible. Also, is it okay to use one with an IUD?
I had a rather messy episode with an overflowing mooncup ,desperate need to wee ,public loo ...and no loo roll
Thank god there was no one there when I came out of the stall,it looked like I'd slaughtered something!
