i am thinking of trying one of these as an environmentally friendly alternative to tampons.

Has anyone tried it and if so how did you get on?

i find it strange that something as natural as those sponges could gross so many women out Confused What is disgusting about periods?

We deal with worse things with dirty nappies and many people chose reusables but not when it comes to their own bodily functions Suspect

They rave about these on another forum I sometimes go on. I think they are basically what they say they are, a cup that collects your menstruation (to put it nicely). I think you just wash it out as you need to.

I must admit it would be so much cheaper than buying sanitry towels and tampons each month. I'm not sure I could use one though...??

I couldnt so it, I really couldnt "collect" my flow then pour it out Gag

I dont do well with blood at the best of times so the thought of doing that just grosses me out.
