I LOVE my menstrual cup!

My menstrual cup is a Keeper Cup.  I had a Diva cup, not sure what happened to it, think I passed it along to a friend.

For years I did not use it.  It was not comfortable, in my vagina, after the birth of my first son.  It was pushing, in weird ways, against the rectal and bladder prolapses I sustained (that is another story!) from child-birth.

Anyhow, guess I forgot about it.  I used my organic, non-chlorine bleached pads and my sea sponge tampon.

Ok, so recently I was inspired to try the Keeper again.  Funny, my son is now 15 years old!  Anyhow, love the thing.  So much nicer than cotton tampons AND a bit nicer than the sea sponge tampons.

Feels good, seals nicely (no leakage), and works like a charm.

Upsides to using a reusable menstrual product  Click this link and read on females!

Looking for education on all things female to do with the menstrual cycle?  Diva cup has much information.

Downside, public bathrooms with multiple stalls.  It is hard to pull it out, empty it, and rinse it off to re-insert when you are in a stall.  People do not appreciate you cleaning out your bloody cup in a public sink.  Solution:  Bring a bottle of water in to the stall with you (preferably in your reusable water bottle from home).  In a pinch, I have held it in my urine stream to rinse it off.  Urine is sterile and acidic. The vagina is acidic.  No problems here.  Rinse off in your pee stream then rinse off with your bottle water from home.  Uses less water!

Grab yourself a menstrual cup:

  • save money
  • use much less disposable paper products
  • help the environment with less waste
  • healthier for vaginal tissue that cotton tampons
  • comfort

Blessings, Paula
