I've had the Diva Cup and Lunapads on my list for the longest time. Part of slowly transitioning to a more organic and sustainable life approach.

http://www.lunapads.com/

I think the first time I came across them was in reading Bitch Magazine.

I'm a big fan of my DivaCup. Husband declared the best benefit of it was the fact that I no longer put icky trash in the bathroom trashcan once a month.

Slightly off topic, although it would probably get a similar amount eye rolling from our male counterparts .... I love my IUD. I got my Mirena almost a year ago and it was the best medical choice I ever made. Three minutes of pain and I have worry-free, nearly side effect free birth control for five to seven years. I tell far to many people that probably don't care at all about it, as I have taken it as my personal responsibility to inform women about IUDs, particularly because they are either misunderstood or unknown in much of the US.

Okay, off my soap box.

And I'd use a menstrual cup if I bled enough for it to make a difference, which I don't, due to my IUD.

The sponge does get kind of icky, but I deal with it.

I'm talking with my GYN about having my useless uterus taken out.

Not for me. I don't see my menstrual cycle as a problem to be shut off. Most forms of birth control do not align with my gradual move towards more organic and natural living.

There are non-hormone forms of IUDs as well that don't disturb your cycle. They can lead to increased bleeding, but I know many women that have them that say they personally don't experience that. The non-hormonal ones are considered to be one of the most environmentally friendly forms of birth control because they consume a little of copper and plastic and last for up the 12 years, depending on model.

If you convince him, let me know how? I'd rather like mine gone as well, given the cancers in my family...

This is going to sound off the wall but wear cotton gusset panties when you can't go without (as in can't go nekkie because you're not at home)! Full cotton is even better. It breathes a lot better than the other types out there & therefore helps to keep the vaginal region cooler.

If the pain & itching gets too back I also use vagisil cream & recently bought some vagisil wipes although I haven't had the opportunity to use them yet.
