So in one of the last issues of Parents magazine (November 2008), there was a question posed in one of the sections about wearing a tampon too long (too busy to remember to change it) and the person advised to just remember to change it or use pads. I immediately jumped on the computer to write them and suggest a menstrual cup. While they didn't use my comment, someone else got their published in this current issue (January 2009). I'm happy that menstrual cups are making their way into magazines--I just wish it was mentioned as an option in the original article. .
