Not for the eyes of men, I have to tell you. This is all about the beautiful cycle of a woman and guys just don't want to hear about it... at least that's what I've heard. ;)
I first heard of Menstrual Cups about 4 or 5 years ago. A friend, who always had problems with heavy periods (super tampons AND pads on top of that) raved about these. I was intrigued. However, not comfortable enough with anything uncommon with the forbidden area until, of course, I had three children. Nothing's sacred after that!
So, after a friend offered them wholesale, I decided this might be the time to try it. Well, I am THRILLED to report that I LOVE IT!! I will never return! Now, this is not to say that it hasn't taken time to figure it out... but, it's simply an amazing invention.
The reason I'm writing is because apparently, not too many people know about it. In my arrogance, I told my SIL that I thought everyone knew about them! Well, after thinking more about it, I haven't really talked withthat many people about it. Anyways, she mentioned she would chat about it on her blog and I waited as long as I could before bursting at the seams! I HAVE TO TELL THE WORLD!!! Besides, she has different readers and the more people who hear about this, the more people will find the freedom in this crazy cycle we woman are blessed/cursed with!
Trust me. Don't be turned off by the foreignness like I was, with many regrets. Go ahead and give it a try!
I guess I was hasty (apologies to the Ents) when I reported that all my technical problems were fixed. They're partially fixed. It's a long story about monitor calibration, ICC color profiles and other terms I very vaguely understand.
