We had a nice talk about girl stuff (something rare for us) and I just ordered my Mooncup. :D I'm super excited!
I plan to get some cloth pads after my Austria trip (I figure those won't be convenient for traveling...scare the crap out of my roommates!)
Next time a band girl asks me what kind of tampon I use (comes up a lot...), I will happily say "I don't use any!" and inform them of cups.
Thank you all so much for your help! This community is amazing. I'll be back after I get it and use it to let you all know how it goes :]
