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:

I have been using cloth pads for about 3 years now. They are great! I want to get a menstrual cup, but haven't found the right one yet.

I tried the cup and did not like it. Thank goodness I don't have to use either now.

I don't think I could use the cloth pads but I've been using the Diva Cup for probably 5+ years and I love it. I used to have minimal cramps anyway, but about 4 months after using the Diva Cup I realized that I didn't have any cramps at all and I honestly cannot remember the last time I had any in those 5+ years. After learning all of the nasty things that are in tampons that my body was absorbing, I switched to the Diva Cup and would not go back. It does take some time to get used to but I think it's great now!

I make my own : ) I buy them here or there too. Nothing commercially produced though. I've been using them for almost five years now.

I used the softcup for a while and it worked great. Now, it's starting to irritate my inards.
I have to use pads because anything that goes in me, irritates me now. Weird.

No diva cup for me, and no cloth pads.  I will use my regular old landfill clogging Always with wings.

I've never used cloth pads, but I love my menstrual cup. It is so much more comfortable than a tampon.
