Pregnancy will solve that problem but then you end up trading that for poopy diapers and 17 years or more of a little demon who will drive you crazy and leave you broke.

Because the uterus isnt a bladder or sphincter muscle.....there isnt any controlling it.....it flows at will.
 Quoting: Tracy


Oh, I see (still tdown.) We males take the ability to control bodily fluids for granted—during waking hours, anyway.

I think God needs to recall you women back to fix your inherent biological defects before someone is injured.

lol I understand the process, but I have about as much desire to fuck my wife when she's bleeding as I do to fuck her in the ass. As in none. I got my hand for that week if I need it. Just because it's part of the life process doesn't mean it isn't disgusting.

They're sold at groceries and Wal-mart, Target, etc. They suck if you have heavy periods...unless you really like spilling cups filled with menstrual blood.

Re: Hey ladies! Menstral cups....
Ever used them? Where do you buy them? Good for heavy periods? Do they dislodge too easily?

Sheesh I have never even heard of them before today and they sound an interesting alternative to pads and tampons.
 Quoting: Tracy


To be honest,I ordered"the keeper" and it was terrible.
I couldn't even get it in (not to sound gross)I oculdn't imagine fighting to get it in and out several times a day if I spent a half hour trying the first time.
No two women are alike size wise so I guess for some it doesn't work well?
I'd try the cheaper alternative first like"Diva cup" available at walmart etc in feminine hygiene products section to see if you even like it before you purchase a more expensive model,that was my mistake.

Re: Hey ladies! Menstral cups....
Was discussing this the other day with some male friends.

One suggested dish towels or wash cloths with duct tape on one side so blood wouldn't soak through. chuckle

Double sided tape if you wanted the towel to stick to your panties.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it.

I am an evil giraffe, and I shall eat more leaves from this tree than perhaps I should, so that other giraffes may die.

Re: Hey ladies! Menstral cups....
I've used them. I think I bought them from drugstore.com. I hate them. They don't dislodge easily, but good luck getting them in place cleanly. And getting them out cleanly. I guess some people like them, but they're not for me.
 Quoting: Gratia Plena


How do you mean "cleanly"? They are going to be filled with what would have been trailing down your legs? I think its a given that its going to be a clotty, bleedy experience....not unlike tampons, rags and pads. SO lodging them in is harder than tampons....is that what you mean?

But wouldnt it be nearly impossible to clean the centre of the sponge? Blood clings to surfaces so well. TSS in the making.

 Quoting: Tracy


I never had a problem with it. The sponges are good with rinsing and if you know how to clean them, there's no risk of tss at all. You can keep making assumptions though. I don't mind.

Cleaning agents for sponges after rinsing the sponge out:
1) tea tree oil and water soak for 5-10 minutes, rinse clean
2) hydrogen peroxide soak, but be careful not to leave it in too long or the sponge will start to disintegrate

Never use hot water as it causes the sponge to shrink, use the above for cleaning it. Don't ever apply soap to the sponge.

There are many other cleaning methods, but these were my go-to methods.

TSS is less likely with sponges than other things, and so long as proper cleaning of the sponges occur, there are no problems with repeat use until it's no longer a desired shape/texture to fit inside of you properly. If you have a supply to rotate through, they should last you at least a year or more.

Re: Hey ladies! Menstral cups....
I had a housemate who used to use them and she would leave them drying by the bathroom sink next to my toothbrush. This act pretty much cured me of any curiosity I had about them. In fact, every time I am served salad dressing in a little plastic cup at a restaurant, I start screaming inside of my head. But I am sure they are earth friendly and a better choice. Just not for me. *is traumatized* alone

Re: Hey ladies! Menstral cups....
Finally had my period...after a few months respite...I think that is ethanol (regular red wine) related and not menopause induced. Anyway....I finally got to use the cup. It "bloody" brilliant! Its way cleaner than I expected....after years of handfuls of tampons and pads filled with pomegranite offerings, spurts of clots and entrails all over my bed linen AND its so comfortable.

This method is like...confined to the cup! I pull it out, pour the blood in the toilet....rise the cup (I do have a tap/sink next to my toilet) and pop it back in. There is no blood all over my hand or cunt because the uterus deposits it into the cup! I went to the Botanic Gardens today and worried about not being close to a sink BUT...I just poured out the contents and popped it back in...washed it out properly when I got home and needed a pee anyway.

Ladies.....you really have to try this method. Imagine no more tampons or pads. Buy a mentrual cup and it lasts donkeys years...its plastic so it wont warp. After you use it each month....you pop it in a mug, pour over boiling water and its sterilized until you need it again. I just wish I had known about this 20 years ago!

It irks me greatly that they dont advertise this.....are tampon/pad moguls shutting them up or not allowing them to advertise? You would think all green people would go for it. Its nuts that this technology hasnt taken over the world by storm.
