I can’t use the Push Down Fold either, so I go with the C-Fold too. I make sure the fold is to the back so when the cup opens it doesn’t flick the sensitive area near the front. Of course, everyone is different, so different folds and different cup brands for different people. :) Here is a nice video which shows different folds: zhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nt6L-POE-b0

Life in C sharp Minor: In honor of my period coming today, here are some reasons why I love my diva cup:

Second these reasons, especially no. 7. :)

lifeincsharpminor:

1. It takes a pretty long time to fill up so I usually only have to fuss with it in the mornings and before I go to bed.

2. Fits nicely in my purse. And I never have to worry about running out of it.

3. I’m really not the greatest environmentalist, but it just feels nice knowing I don’t…

Cup U Is The Best Short Documentary About Menstrual Cups You’ll See Today

Vanessa Meyer’s master’s thesis is a short film, titled Cup U. It is fifteen minutes of women — who are not, in her words, “granola eating hippies” — discussing menstrual cups.

What’s interesting about this whole menstrual cup business is that the concept — collecting menstrual blood while it’s still in the body and then disposing of it — is fairly simple. But since you never see commercials for cups, and because they’re rarely available in drug stores, they’ve taken on some kind of secretive, cult status. Menstruation is already wrought with clandestine behavior — we don’t want anyone to see us carrying a tampon to the office ladies’ room; we don’t want anyone to hear us opening a pad in the stall. Everything is supposed to be hush-hush, clean, sanitized and swept under the rug (no pun intended). And yet… There’s this lady-to-lady whisper campaign about how to deal with your period, and the message is: Cups!

This is a wonderful video. It discusses menstrual cups in an honest way, interviewing many different women, even those uncomfortable with using cups. I found it very empowering and I had to share. If you’re a fan too, please reblog.
