Going Green (Women's Eyes ONLY)

***Guys- do NOT read this***

This means you Dad! Don't say I didn't warn you, it's women's talk!!!

Trust me on this.

So I'm trying something new. I've never been able to wear tampons. I could never get them in far enough so they were comfortable. I hate bulky pads. Since AF reared her ugly head today I decided to try out my new Diva Cup. So far, so good. I put it in tonight and after a slight adjustment, it feels really comfortable. It's completely reusable so that makes it good for the environment. I'm not having to throw anything out and add more to the landfills. It doesn't go in as far as a tampon so it's easier for me at least to use. I read rave reviews on my bargain board and got in on a deal a few months back. It's just been sitting in my cabinet since then. I will post more later and how well it works!

Update #1 (POSSIBLE TMI!)- I wore it all night with no leaks. Emptied it and reinserted it this morning with no issues. I have noticed a slight pinkish tinge on the TP at times but it never reaches the pantyliner I'm still wearing just in case. I can't believe how comfortable it is. I don't even realize it's there!

I'd like to hear more about it Karlise. I won't go into detail, but I do love the re-useable feminine products.

That sounds interesting. You'll have to update us about your experience with it.

I've seen them but I can't convince myself to try them, lol.
