(no subject)

I was given a link to this community after posting THIS over at vaginapagina.

If you don't want to read that I'll sum it up here: Just started getting regular periods, have a heavy flow, never used tampons (only pads), don't want to put up with uncomfortable plastic-y pads & don't want to give any more money to Procter & Gamble.

I don't want to risk being allergic to The Keeper so I am debating whether to get the Diva Cup or the Mooncup. I'm thinking I should go with the Diva Cup because everyone seems to bring up the grips on the tab to take it out with. I'm not too familiar with my body and I'm EXTREMELY scared to put anything in me that is small and will stay there. I have a crazy fear of it getting lost or getting stuck and hurting me, but I think it's maybe a very irrational fear? So any suggestion? I've read WAY back and seen all the posts so maybe I should just go with whatever one comes quicker? I don't know. I live in the U.S. so maybe I should get the Diva Cup because things tend to take quite a while to get here from England? Hmmm... ANY tidbit would help here. I really SHOULD just get some re-usable cotton pads, but right now I am jobless and have $45 so I thought one of these cups would be my best bet. Again, ANY help would be very appreciated. Thanks.
