Diva + Me = True Love! (and any cloth liner suggestions?)

So I have officially finished my first cycle with my new Diva Cup, and I think it's now my absolute favourite thing in the world. My southern regions thank me for it! Not a single leak (even with my abnormally heavy flow), and I could barely feel it. Insertion and removal went fairly well, and I'm just overall really impressed!

I used pads on the first day in case there were leaks, but once I realized I was ok, I switched to liners. I feel like all of those pads and liners were a total waste, especially since there was no blood on them at all, so I'm considering switching to cloth liners. Any suggestions for a  good cloth pad company? I've heard of Lunapads... any other suggestions? I wear thongs a lot (sorry, tmi!) so I was wondering if they have reusable thong liners as well.

Anyway, I just wanted to share my fabulous experience with the Diva Cup. For all of those who are considering getting one, I HIGHLY recommend it. Sure, there is a bit of a learning curve initially, but once you get the hang of it, you'll never go back to disposables!

menstruation for teen girls

Hey guys. My friends just started this company kalily. It's for teenagers and girls getting their first period. I was thinking they should try to partner with Diva Cup or something to get young girls into menstrual cups.

What do you guys think? I don't know if young girls would be that receptive to alternative menstrual products, but I guess at that age it's all what adults tell you anyway.
