cup and post partum

ok, so i asked my gyn today about using a cup post partum and she said that after the first week (where i probably wouldn't feel like stuffing anything up there anyways) she doesn't see any problems with using a cup.
the main points in not using tampons are 1) the chemicals and 2) that you can't really control the amount and consistency of fluid you loose, both problems that don't occur with the cup.

of course i don't know yet how i will feel after giving birth and if i will have stitches and stuff, but so far this is good news for me!

just thought i'd let you know ;-)
