I've heard about the Diva cup, sponges, and making your own pads. I'm mostly use pads or panty liner/pads with a tampon. I mostly wear tampons when I'm swimming laps or cycling. My biggest fear about the sponge or diva cup is that it would leak or be full and it comes out while i'm in the pool or something. If that makes any sense.
How would I deal with the Diva cup or sponge if I am backpacking/bicycle touring? I'm thinking about the leave no trace behind. do you just dig a hole and dump it in there and rinse it out? Normally I would just put my pads/tampons in a ziplock bag.
is there anything else besides the diva cup or sea sponges?
