I've been using a cup for about 6 months now and I love it. I just recently started using cloth pads when I don't want to use the cup, though, and I was wondering if anyone has noticed that their period seems to be a different consistency depending on what they are using. This is kind of TMI but when I use the cup there is always a string of discharge? that goes from the cup to my vagina but with pads there isn't a string. Anyone have an idea of why?
