  • Mood:
i currently use a diva cup (for almost a year now), and i have been trying to get my sisters and mom to switch. i believe my mom is about to start menopause and her periods have become extremely heavy. she uses the biggest size of ob tampons available (i believe they are ultras...?), wears a pad as a backup, and has to change both about every 30 minutes on her heaviest day. this poses a problem as she works in a daycare and cannot always get away to go to the bathroom.

has anyone or does anyone know of someone who has used a cup before they start going through menopause? do you think a cup would help with an extremely heavy flow?
