  1. I made the switch like many of the fellow commentators due to comfort (27)! About five years ago while reading Inga Musico’s book, Cunt, I came across a listing for a website that made and sold reusable pads. It was something that I didn’t even know existed, they were not exactly explained in health class or in any of the teen mags, so I had always thought that disposables were the only option. Once I received my starter kit in the mail, I instantly fell in love! Unlike the disposables, these have never given me paper burn in the crease of my inner thigh. The savings since I’ve switched and the added feeling of empowerment every time I soak them (giving the water to my plants of course!)are just added bonuses for me!

  2. I´ve been using mooncup for tree years, and i think it was the best choice I´ve done about my period. My second best choice was start using lunapads instead of the classic disposables to use with my cup, and I´m very happy with my situation now. I have a little tumour in my ovary so I suffer big pains, but now I can say they are smaller. I enjoy with the idea of non contaminating way of life thought for women too, and I would like to tell everybody how good and confortable are the green options. Here in Spain they´re giving mooncups to the girls in the secondary school for free, I heard. I think It´s a great initiative. If I have babies in the future, I will use reusable diapers too, It´s de obvious alternative option. And finally, I love comics, so I will enjoy it the double.

  3. I found this information is very useful. Thanks for sharing. Do you mind whether I mention a few paragraphs from this article in our website if it’s made known you as the source and links back to your site? Thanks!
