  • They are a rubber ring with plastic bag type cup to collect the menstrual flow. Some women swear by them..I found them to uncomfortable and messy.
    I do however like my menstrual up. I have the Diva cup and it is a breeze to use. If you are interested in it do a google search for Diva Cup.

  • I wonder if those would be good for swimming and things like that where a pad or tampon isn't practical?
