    I admit I'm squeamish about putting bleached paper in my ladybits. I have some Glad Rags that I usually use, but that doesn't help with swimming, etc. And I find that people are even less receptive to those than they are Keepers/Diva Cups/et. al.

    I honestly hadn't heard about these things at all, sound worth trying as I hate pads and I don't like the tampon experience even though I choose it for the freedom.

    Damnit. I wasn't saying I found MY OWN coochie (or, coochies in general) unhygienic - what puts me off a bit is the whole fingers that are unwashed/possibly public bathroom skuzz/toilet proximity thing. Gotta little coochie/germ phobia. And even tho the toxic shock scare was before my time, I'm aware of it and it has helped to instill and back-up that feeling of...hmmm...don't really want to be sticking objects in there for extended periods of time thing.

I stopped using tampons ages ago, and commercial pads make my skin feel raw and burned. I use the washable version, which isn't nearly so gross as some might initially think. Then again, as a vegan, my periods aren't nearly so heavy as that of my girlfriends. When I was a teenager, it could look like the battle of Agincourt in my nether-regions.

    EDIT: The pill kicked my butt. I almost wound up in the ER because of it.
    I had problems with pads when Always added to their products 'dry weave'. Eventually my periods started getting longer than 7 days. The first two days where so heavy that I couldn't find a comercial pad to be absorbant enough for overnight. My midwife also said during my first pregnancy, that I shouldn't use products with 'dry weave' since they tend to dissolve stitches if I should tear.

    So I started to do some research on the internet regarding alternatives and ended up buying from lundpads. Lunapads also offered a post partum kit that I found useful for my heavy flows. Before the pregnancy of my third child, I have to say that my period only lasted 5 days (5 years of washable pads) but I truely cannot say if it was the natural products or my pregnancies that changed my period. The shorter period is also why I ended up pregnant; I miscalulated the day of my ovulation.

    Aha, all my roomies and suitemates are on the pill...I'm jealous. Their periods look like nothing and I'm the one in the fetal position. >.<

    As for the OP, I am much too chicken to use something like that; tampons are hard enough for me to handle. Them, pads, and Midol, and I have my period weapons at the ready.

    I'm a newbie to it.. but i'm loving it. I haven't had any problems with the leaking. It was a bit strange getting used to getting into the right position at first. After I got that down, I could hardly tell it was there. If you don't get it high enough in (I have the Diva cup), then you can feel it. Practice and time makes it okay, really.

    Of course, I was a little squimish at first seeing what was coming out of there... but hell, it's mine at least...good luck!

    I made the mistake of not taking the utmost care with insertion

    That's all I have to say about it.

    I've used them in the past, I think they're good for certain occasions ... like say, wanting to have sex while you're on your period...but other than that I think they're gross, messy, and awkward.

    I use a combo of tampons and pads. Tampons when I go out, pads for comfort when I stay in + extra security when I sleep.
