    1. It depends on the brand, there are the ones called softcup which are disposable, in one package they sell about 24 pieces, for the same price you can buy the reusable one and i think that's the point here to reduce waste. (Some of the reusable brands recommend changing the cup every year because it's a hygene product, but i think if you wash it, it shouldn't be a problem. A friend recommended this to me, she has been using it for 8 years!)

  1. I have one of these menstrual cups (not sure of the brand). It's washable, and definitely lasts more than 1 year…or so I thought and have been using it for 2 so far!

  2. What do you think of period panties? I picked some up from Thinx, and I've been looking at the ones from Lunapads. The Lunapads will be nice after giving birth, and I can transition to the underwear once I go back to a lighter period.

  3. I adore my menstrual cup! It's very comfortable, only have to worry about cleaning it out at home, no leaking to worry about (as long as you ensure it has opened back up), and very easy to thoroughly clean at the end of the week. I'm actually a little upset that I hadn't been taught about these until I was 29! In fact, my 60+ year old grandmother had never heard of them! I am so glad women are spreading awareness of their existence.

  4. I find the menstrual cup really painful which was a total bummer because it sounds like such a great solution. So, I ordered some handmade cotton pads off Etsy. It took a while for me to get use to having something down there other than a tampon (which is what I use to wear), but now I really love the pads! And it feels really great to no longer produce a bunch of trash during that time of the month. Plus…it saves so much money!

  5. Hi Lauren! I know this comment is going to be posted on a year old post, but I had a question about the menstrual cup. Your package-free shop says that the ash of silicone can be composted, but I can’t find anything to back up this claim? All the websites and sources I can find say that silicone is only recyclable. If you could help me out that would be great. Thank you!

  6. For the ladies using the disposable pads, are they easy to wash? We all know blood is very difficult to get rid of, and I have ruined underwear once or twice due to accidents or unexpected period. Can you tell me how you deal with the washing? Sorry if this this too TMI, but I am curious.
