Thank you lovely mumsnetters. I have gone to town today and bought a mooncup it's bloody brilliant. Had to shout about how great it is on here because if I tell anyone in RL they will think I'm bonkers
Also I got my bra size measured today and went from a 34c to a 32e. Thank you mumsnetters for all the threads it looks like an instant boob job and is comfortable for the first time in forever so so happy
Yay for the new bra size! I just can't get on with my mooncup, however. It hurts my fanjo. I have the regular size for my age and the thought of using it makes me shudder. It is so uncomfortable. What am I doing wrong?
I found it surprisingly clean. It doesn't leak, it all stays in the cup when being removed. No blood on hands at all unlike previous tampons that are far messier and get everywhere and I feel more confident knowing it will only fill up a little rather than flood a super duper ultra absorbent tampon with a back up towel in no time
I'm thinking about getting a mooncup, as my flow is very light and tampons are a faff. Bras, unfortunately, are another story. I have lost a lot of weight, and now have a 26in chest (with H-cup size norkage up front). I fear that only Ewa Michelak does my size these days and they're based in Poland!
The mooncup is brilliant because using it I often actually forget I'm having my period (and I'm actually able to sleep without fear of leaks).
Does not work for everyone but I've been a happy user since 2008 and for me there is no going back, ever. Everyone defines gross in her own way but for me sanitary pads in the trash <boak> and tampons <double boak>.
Definately a mooncup convert - did not get on so well with it at the start 4 years ago as i had the coil in and was quite heavy. tried it again a year later when coil was out and was lighter (read normal). Still have tampons and/or pads occasionaly depending on where i am going, but feel much more in tune with myself, honest about what my body goes through and it really is soooo much better for the environment. I have heard of people putting their collected blood in their garden/compost (fish blood & bond is a commonly used fertilizer)but think this may be a step too far for me!!!
