(no subject)

 After three cycles and much practicing i finally mastered the Divacup! It's working perfectly for me, no leaks, discomfort or problems removing. I also used it for the first time at school and it was incredibly easy. I wish I had known about them sooner. No more do I have to carry around bundles of tampons with me, feeling wasteful and grumpy all the while. Thanks to the people who answered my questions on my first post. Your advice helped greatly. 

My next purchase will prolly be some reusable pads. Im not really sure what type to buy, I was thinking about getting them on etsy. I also don't want really expensive ones though. If anyone has any suggestions i would appreciate it.

But basically i just wanted to express how wonderful menstrual cups are! If they haven't worked for you yet don't give up, the wait is worth it. 

New Cup Brand! SheCup!

India's new menstrual cup brand is called SheCup!  Just posting the link for everyone, so we can all go check it out!  For now that's all I know, but thank you to Laura from EasyCup for the information via Facebook!  :)

EDIT:  I just got a reply back from the company.  They say for now, SheCup only comes in one size and is offered in a light pink color.  The capacity up to the air holes is appx. 16 ml.  To the rim its appx. 28 ml. The stem is short rounded knob and the holes are located under the second rim. 

The pouch is made of pure un-dyed Khadi, for "keeping the product eco-friendly and also supporting the social cause of cottage industries."  The company also offers sterilizing soap strips for cleaning.

Drat!  Forgot to ask about size measurement, but Teresa listed some of that in comments below.  I'm supposed to be getting one of these cups soon, so I will offer up plenty of photos when/if I do.  Plus the usual review and video :)  -- Hugs everyone!
