    Default Lady Cups

    Now I'm part of the problem!!!

    But seriously, any ladies have experience with menstrual cups? I'm thinking of getting a Diva Cup. What did women do before sanitary napkins and tampons?
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    They never left the cave, so it didn't matter.

    I think when I read Things Fall Apart or some book based in a time I didn't live there was some description of sitting in leaves for days. That sounds fun!

    I have no real reason other than I saw it on the shelf and I want to give it a try. Evidently it's more eco-friendly, earth goddess-y, cheaper, and about as much trouble as putting in a tampon.

    I dunno anything about cups, I've heard of them but I always thought it sounded uncomfortable and potentially disastrous. I've also heard of women wearing reusable (and eco friendly ) cloth pads, but my guess is that would only work if you had a really light flow.

    wouldn't use personally, but I beleive they are better for the planet. I'm not sure about the sanity side.

    As for pre-tampons/ST.... well I beleive that women tore up strips of linnen/cloth and washed them out....

    Hmmmm. OK, lol.

    I am curious now, i am not finding any proper info on these.

    So you insert, it fills up and then you remove it and clean it out
    Or
    Insert, fill up, pull off nozzle, contents comes out. Take out after x amount of time and clean thoroughly.

    There is always one .. Sorry

    Yeah that's basically it. Then you have the different types of folds and what not. Honestly, I'm wearing it now, feels fine and I didn't have any problems putting it in.
