  • Depends on how often i pee! LOL. It could be from 1-5 hours depending on the flow that day and how often i have to pee. Or anywhere from 4-7 hours if im sleeping. I usually wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.

  • i'm 34 and never put one on... i'm afraid of the stories i hear about those things. and it's so invasive even to myself to put one in. i mean, do you swat down to open the area or does it just slip in. Does it hurt at all? i know it sounds sooo silly...i guess i'm just not comfortable with exploring my own body. i am married with 3 kids too!
