Would anyone be interested?

I was just wondering if all of us here on this community would be willing to to measure their flow each month for a couple of months.
In reference to this post: http://community.livejournal.com/menstrual_cups/1999351.html#cutid1

I thought it would be interesting if we could state which cup we're using (no changing cups during this experiment so it's consistent), how much blood fills the cup when we go to empty it, and how much blood we accumulate over the course of you period.
Measure this versus how much you bled/how many pads/tampons you used before you got your cup.
Also give a little bit of backup info, for instance, I'm 8 weeks postpartum so I don't think I'll be getting my period for a while. I've had 3 children and I'm 27 and I have a mid-low cervix. (The canal is the length of my middle finger, my cervix is right at the end.)

Anyone interested in compiling some data? It might help people new to the cup experience have a better time finding a cup that works for them.
Also, if you have better ideas for compiling the data, let me know!
