A little bit of back-story: I am taking a psychology class at my university titled Human Sexuality. One of our papers that we have to write is a book review. I chose the Guide to Getting It On 6th Ed. (It's a long and sometimes boring book, but a great read for those who are interested in sex). Anyways, I'm mostly done with the book and I finally got to the chapter about menstruation. I thought to myself, "Oh great, more crap about the old tampons vs. pads debate." BUT there is an ENTIRE section devoted to menstrual cups including how much better they are for your body and the environment. At the end of the section this LJ community was cited with a mention of, "At the time of publication (2009), there were two excellent websites for women who are thinking about trying menstrual cups." The LJ community was the first website mentioned.
Long story made longer... I just want to say thank you to this community for being so helpful for me and pretty much everyone else as well as sharing an interesting reference that I found.
