Has anyone actually tried the cups? I recently heard of these myself and have been debating on buying a DIVA CUP. Is it uncomfortable? Also, I read that you all have free pads and tampons HOW?? I am new here and if you can help me out on this one, I would so appreciate it! Thanks!

Thanks for all of the informative posts, everyone! Wanted to put my 2 cents in for what it's worth. For me (and this is just my own comfort level), I could NOT go on anything that stopped my mentrual cycle. I have learned over the years that it is something to be celebrated, but for some folks, it's just not something to party about! LOL! I think it's nature's way for things to be cyclical - including our bodies.

The reusable pads really ARE nice - for me anyway. I tried them years ago, but they were expensive to get started. I know LOTS of ladies in my community that sew ALLLL sorts of things, so maybe I could get them to make some for me. Pretty cool to be reintroduced to this!

Thanks again for all of the info!

~ Ell' xoxo

I totally agree! I will take the ick of monthly periods over worrying every month if I am pregnant!

I am considering the Diva cup. Any other opinions on this or other cups?

I am so sad! I just read the FAQs for the Diva Cup and it says not to use it if you have an IUD (I have a copper one). BOO!

Here is my opinion on the subject(s):

--- About the "how do you get free?" question... First of all, there are tons of free samples out there that you can request. I have gotten a lot of Kotex especially but also Alway, Carefree, etc feminine products in the mail and they usually have coupons. Then through combining sales/coupons/ECBs/etc I have gotten many boxes/packs of them free at CVS and Walgreens. Another thing, if you sign up for free samples, the incontinence ones work great for mentrual needs too like the Poise or Serenity ultra thin pads, pantiliners, overnights, etc so I always sign up for those samples too (just not the underwear/diaper things LOL)
--- For those of you saying it's gross, I thought so too at first but then I thought about all the tons and tons of dirty tampons and pads in the landfills and that truely is gross.

--- Personally I don't think I could do the reusable pads thing. I admire those of you that can do that but something about washing out super soiled fabric just grosses me out... reason I don't cloth diaper also. I know that you really can get them clean with hot water and/or bleach but it's just a thing that I have not overcome LOL

--- For those asking about the Diva Cup (the only one cup that I have tried so I can't answer for the other brands) here is some info on them:
--about the changing while out... I don't. You can leave them in for 12 hours. If you have a really heavy flow, you may need to do it more often but with a normal or light flow, you should be fine. I change mine in the morning and at night (yes I sleep in it)
--Whenever I am going to be going out or when I go to bed at night, I do put one of my freebie pads on for "just in case" or when it gets lighter, I use a panty liner. When I do use a pad though, I can use the regulars I don't need the long or overnights. Doing this I don't go through more than about 6 pads, 3 liners for the entire period.
--It does not have the odor that comes with tampons/pads which is awesome. And it does not have the icky feeling that you get with pads. AND you can still wear tight pants unlike pads LOL
--When you do change it, it is a bit gross but it is non porous silicone and you wash it and your hands which only takes a few seconds and your done and the mess is gone. When you change your tampon/pad you get to keep (in your trashcan) your mess.
--This is a YMMV thing but when I wear it, I cannot feel it at all once it is in just like with tampons.

I, too, use a Diva cup- it takes a while to get used to. My first few times mine leaked, but now that I've gotten used to it it's awesome! I LOVE not having to buy tampons. I'm not a fan of the reusable pads NOT because I have a problem with washing/reusing them, but because I just don't like pads, period. The cloth ones are more comfortable, but they still fell ewwey to me (yes, that is a word).

And while I understand that not everyone can practically do cloth or reusable pads, I think it's a little closed minded to just go "ew, I could never do that!" and dismiss it. Not only do I save masses of money buy using cloth diapers (used ones at that- yes, I bought used cloth diapers), but I'm not putting 3000 completely un-biodegradable poo filled diapers (okay, they probably ALL wouldn't be poo filled) a YEAR into landfills. Call me crazy, but I don't want some planet left for my kids, and maybe even for their kids.

And it's not even gross. I mean, changing diapers is gross no matter how you do it, but it's not any MORE gross than disposibles. I do know that my cloth diapers don't smell up the entire room like my older child's disposibles did.

BTW, I just wanted to say that I wasn't trying to put anyone down or imply that it's barbaric or anything that people have reusable pads or cloth diapers. I'm just really squeemish. I think that people that can get past it and do that for the environment are awesome.

Just curious--the plastic liners in the disposable ones saved me many times, do you experience spotting through with the homemade or re-usables?

I make/buy my own cloth pads. I love them. I started out with them initially b/c once I read the ingredients that tampons are made out of, I was too grossed out to keep inserting that into my body. Then I realized how much money I would save. Then once I got them and felt how comfy they were, there was no going back. And b/c they are natural with none of the bleach and other gross things like disposable pads and tampons it actually lessens your PMS symptoms AND shortens your period. I went from having heavy cramps and bleeding, major bloating with a period that was about 7 days down to none of those symptoms lasting 3 days *light* at the most.

I totally agree ^ I started cloth diapering with my 2nd daughter, and am waiting for dd3 to get big enough to fit into the ones we bought for her. I hate using sposies.

If the cloth pad is backed with wool (no, it's not itchy or hot), fleece, or PUL, then no you should not have any problems with spotting or leaking. If a pad is backed with cotton and does not have a "hidden layer" of one of the materials above, then I wouldn't get it.

For those interested check out some great pads:

Dang! I have an IUD and I used to use a Diva Cup when I had the IUD in! I never even thought about it interfering! Thankfully my IUD has slowed my period down to basically spotting and one "normal" day so I don't really need anything other than pads.

I don't find a Diva Cup any grosser than a tampon, personally. I liked mine quite well when I had a normal period. I have tried reusable pads and wasn't a fan, so I don't use them. I used cloth diapers with my daughter for quite a while so washing a few pads doesn't seem repulsive to me, but I wouldn't really want to wash them with everything either (didn't mix my daughter's diapers with any other laundry either.) I can't imagine washing a whole batch just for a few pads. Anyhow, I have a ton of cheap and free Always Infinity now - an infinite supply, if you will - so I doubt I'll revisit "mama cloth" anytime soon. But I'll use my Diva again when I get my IUD out, I guess.

First off, thank you for making me take the spoon out of the ice cream I was eating...didn't need it anyway.

I honestly have never heard about any of this. I am not sure if I would try it or not but for those that do...kudos. I might research it a bit just out of curiousity.

Made my first prototype. Going to keep trying. I do enjoy the quality of the pads. Its much more comfortable and absorbent.

Aside from being reassuring- not having a period has serious, serious health ramifications that they don't tell you about. My periods are awful but I choose to deal with them because they are still the lesser of the two evils. Just throwing out there that stopping periods altogether is not without consequence.
