So my sister was telling me how her girlfriend uses Cloth Pads. So I looked them up and they snap to your undies like a regular pad. While on the website, I noticed that they also sell menstrual cups (I hope you can assume their purpose).

So would you ever use these products? 

For me this isn't an issue because I prefer tampons.


Here is the site to reference:

The Diva Cup is quite popular among the crunchy mamas I know.

i havent been able to get one because i have an iud (getting my cup as soon as hubs gets the big V lol).  a long time ago i tried out disposable cups and i loved them.  everyone i know who has used the cup loves it.  for some it takes a cycle or two to get the hang of it - but they all love it.

I've been using the cup for a while now and have recently bought 2 more. I have 4 total. I will NEVER go back to tampons unless I just have to. Pads have always given me problems and I do use a panty liner for my heavy days so I'm considering cloth panty liners. Since it's really just back up on the first day or two I can deal with it I think. After day two I can tell I've been using a panty liner.
