So much love! Life changing.
When you have two small children, pads don’t really cut it anymore. Too leaky, and nights were a huge gamble - will I wake up to find a puddle of blood in my knickers and will it get on my sheets? And who wants to be unnecessarily washing a huge sheet with kids in tow? So I tried tampons, but they either leaked crazily when too full or were too dry which felt horrible inside and on t he way out. Not to mention the discomfort if I didn’t insert them quite high enough. Today is day 2 of using my Juju cup (style 2). I also bought five pairs of modibodi knickers as backup (recommended!) I AM IN LOVE. Oh cup, where have you been all this time!! Admittedly, I would never have given these a go as a virgin (even tampons scared me) but it’s been nearly a decade since then. The first and second insertions did hurt a bit as it unfolded just after the entrance, because I hold it at the bottom. But after changing to the 7 fold, it’s much less awkward. The first removal was a bit messy, lucky it was in the shower, but was easier than expected (I was so worried that I did hours upon hours of research and comment-reading on this!). I’ve removed it 3 times now and I’m getting good at this. I also bought the lemon myrtle wash - it’s brilliant and smells so nice. In summary: No leaks (I felt the leak creep when I woke up in the morning but I removed it just in time), no smells in my knickers, no smells in the bin, no waste, no dryness, no TSS paranoia. Saving a bucket of money AND the environment. WIN, WIN, WIN, WIN, WIN, WIN, WIN. One little product, so many wins, so much love.
