Mooncup (as seen on a Veggie Nugget thread near you...)

We're all in this together, remember, so while the world is collapsing around our ears it might be nice to have a place to talk about new-found frugalities and old-fashioned eco-living. And mooncups.

I know I'm being ridiculous, but it just doesn't appeal to me. I don't know how to get over the (probably misguided) 'eurgh' factor. Did anyone else feel a bit funny about it before getting one?

Yay! I had no idea they were so popular... thought I was a bit of a weirdo. Have been using one for 3 and a half years (minus the last year and a bit - pregnancy and haven't had a period since - hooray for breastfeeding!)

Would highly recommend it to anyone who is umming and ah-ing. I have known a couple of people not get on with it, but most brands you can get a full refund if you don't like it.

But - definitely persevere for three cycles - after one I wasn't sure, after two i was a bit more convinced and by the end of the third there was no looking back - you do have to learn the knack.

Even Boots stocks them now... you just have to know where to hunt, or in my case, try to describe it to a bewildered sales assistant...

Loubylou - I felt exactly the same way as you. It felt like A Step Too Far. But then a fellow cloth-nappy-using Mum recommended it and that kind of tipped the balance for me. When I read about the minimising thrush aspect of it, I was sold and I have loved it ever since.

Thats why I posted it tbh... it sometimes helps to get a thumbs-up from a bunch of people you trust on other issues!!

There has also been research linking the chemicals used in tampons and the rise in cervical cancer. I will try and hunt it down.

There's a stem on it which is supposed to help you get it out - though actually you have to find and squidge the base of the cup to break the suction when you take it out; I think if you just pulled the stem you might do yourself a mischief! :scream Anyway, I could feel the stem and got fed up in the end and cut it off - no more problem.
