i've never tried any alternative items...just disposable pads and tampons. and i've been really curious about cups lately. but anyway. i'm not working right now. and i hate when i am, because my regular discharge gets so heavy when i'm on my feet all day. like i have to wear pantyliners (which i know are bad for you) or deal with the smell til i get home and change panties. so...can the cup be used as a daily...cream catcher? do people do that? does anyone besides me have increased discharge when you have to be on your feet all day or have to walk across campus a lot? what do you do about it?
