    I can't use a cup because I have an IUD but if I didn't, I would be all over it.

    Again, context. Meanwhile your touching stall doors, sink knobs, and rinsing your cup in the sink. Not sanitary or funny.

    Four main concerns:
    1. Mess.
    2. Leakage.
    3. Bloating discomfort during heavy periods since you're holding fluids in an area not intended to hold a substantial amount of blood.
    4. Putting something back internally, that hasn't been disinfected.

    Not generally recommended for public (stalls) washroom use, but more out of respect for not grossing people out than any sanitary reason. The other non-cup-using people touching the stalls, sink knobs, etc also track small amounts of menstrual blood (and urine and feces, as well). Menstrual blood is WAY more "clean" than poop, and people do poop in the bathroom. That's why you wash your hands after using the washroom, rather than before. You also have two hands, if it comes to that.

    Exactly this and especially the bold.

    I disagree with the whole concept. It's a personal hygeine matter.

    proteanmix is right on with her post on proper handling (below) and if you add up the extras + time, this ENTP says, hell no.

    The only part of proteanmix's quote below that sounds sugar coated is the part about "pop out the Lady Cup". Ideally, for y'alls sake I certainly hope it pops out. I imagine it's more accurately like fishing.

    Good luck!

    -out-

    Use the glove to pop out the lady cup so you don't have a mess on your hands. Wipe it out with the cleansing wipes and replace. Pretty simple once you get the hang of it.

    You keep using the word context. I don't think it means what you think it means.

    People touch doors and sink knobs and wash their tamponny hands in the sink, too. Not sure why it's so much worse except that it's outside your experience. Also, did you know people shit in bathrooms and then have to touch things on their way to the sink to wash up? True story. That's also not sanitary. That's why you WASH YOUR HANDS.

    PS, I don't think most people rinse their cup in the public bathroom sink- everyone I know who uses one says they do the same as Proteanmix except without the gloves. The gloves are a good idea, though.

    If men menstruated, we would valourise it, we would boast of it, we would show the world the blood on our hands.

    But the world of women, the world of menstruating women, remains a secret. Women just don't tell us where they are in their cycle. And yet their cycle determines how they feel and what they desire. It's as though the feelings and desires of women are unimportant.

    Religion tells us that menstruating women are unclean and must be separated from society until they are ritually cleansed. Why in Canberra itself we have recently built a ritual cleansing bath for Judaic women after menstruation.

    So today we still mutilate the genitals of boys and girls and we ritually cleanse women after menstruation. This strikes me as psychopathic.
