I've been using The Keeper for six months with no problems what-so-ever. I love it. I would never go back to tampons. However, I moved onto campus to start my second year of college and low and behold I realized I forgot to pack my keeper. I got my period today and had to use tampons which are irritating in so many ways. I can FEEL the suckers up there rubbing and it's no good. I want my keeper back.
I bought my keeper about 2 1/2 to 3 years ago, and I paid US$60 for it. I was just looking it up online because a friend had expressed interest, and I noticed that they are betwen US$30-35 at a LOT of places. Has anybody noticed that they have gone down in price significantly over the last couple of years? Or did I just not do enough research and get screwed? (I can't remember who I bought it from, but I was just doing searches using http://www.google.com - I didn't know about http://www.froogle.com until last year.)
This is the second day with my Mooncup. I am having the most trouble taking it out. I cut off the tab on the end completly so, when I go to clean it out it's a real bugger to grab. When I get a firm grasp, I just want to pull it out. I heard about breaking the suction by pressing your index finger at the top. Somehow I can't seem to manage that. It is really painful just pulling it out. Does anyone have any tips? And is it possible to do damage to my muscles if I continue to pull it straight out?
