Quirky flow poll

I believe it was Gloria Steinem who said that if men menstruated, they would surely make a big deal out of the monthly ritual and brag about their rate of flow. I wish I could remember the name of that essay. It was really good.

But anyway, with that in mind:
Poll #258824 Menstrual flow

How full is your Keeper after wearing it on a peak flow day for 8 to 12 hours?

Less than half full
16(20.8%)
About half full
19(24.7%)
About 2/3rds full
13(16.9%)
Brimming full! My Keeper runneth over!
12(15.6%)
What? I could never go 8 hours! It would have totally flowed over and leaked quite a mess by then.
17(22.1%)


Note that no one can see the results, so you don't have to worry about anyone knowing. We're NOT men after all. We're modest ladies who don't like to brag. :D

too big!

I've been using my keeper for a few months now.
Unless I am actively engaged in something, I am very aware of it...it feels very large. I'm wondering if perhaps I have the over 30/childbirth size?
I love the idea of the keeper but I am just so aware of it, it makes me uptight. I'm beginning to think my vagina is just "small" I already had to cut the pull tab off completely(it was aggravating horribly) and I'm ready to take a rotary tool to it, trying to decrease its size(the hard "tip" and opening).
I'm wondering if anyone can give me measurements of their keeper, so I can see if maybe I do have the wrong size. I'm also just looking for similar experiences and advice :)
