Meg here and I have to BEG you to read this because, quite frankly, it will change your life!
Here is a rundown of my day. I was on my way to the Organic Green and Natural convention in Anaheim to check out some “green” products to get sent to us to review for the site. It’s an all day hustle (and I had the flow) process.
I pulled into the parking garage with my trusty sidekick Megken and said “Oh, great! Argh! I forgot to put extra tampons in my purse! I hope they have one of those dumb dispensers I can buy one from or I’m screwed! What is wrong with me! I can’t believe I forgot that! Damn!
Being a man, that has never experienced the glory of a brown-red stain on the back of his jeans, Megken was all “Oh, Um, maybe there’s something you can get there?”
I’m sorry, but when I go out with no back-up I’m on a timer. I bleed. I bleed a lot. To those girls that have said to me “Oh, for three days it’s terrible!” I say, “THREE DAYS!!! TOO BE SO LUCKY!
I went to the convention bathroom, I did the thing when you pee and push the arcaic cotton up and prayed “Thirty more minutes…I just need thirty minutes…
Once I secured it into place I did the convention booth walk and then I saw it DIVA CUPS…A MENSTRUAL SOLUTION!
I guess I was practicing “The Secret” because there it appeared. YOU need this!
I walked up to the booth, got the pitch…then begged for one!
It’s an organic show. I got the organic pitch. We spend $225 a year on tampons and pads. They end up in landfills. They irritate- these don’t (latex-free!) Forty bucks and will last you for years!
I was all Sounds fab! Give me one. I’m about to supply a blood-drive right here, right now
OMG! This is fantastic! It’s so hard to explain but so easy to use!
It’s basically a cup that collects your period for 12 hours. I can’t sleep in a pad-so uncomfortable, I SHOULD NEVER SLEEP IN A TAMPON! Toxic Shock Syndrome-very bad. I end up sleeping on an old towel.
How does this work? I’m going to to do the best descriptive I can here..It looks like a nipple-sort-of. You squeeze the cap down to whatever size your spout will accommodate. Then, once inside, the cup will open to collect your blood.
My review? It’s awesome! I hate the diaper, I hate the bloody string! Diva Cups feel invisible and are wonderful! They work!
OK. You can win these. They’re $40. You can use them over and over. The average women spends over $225.00 A YEAR ON PADS AND TAMPONS!
We’re giving Diva Cups to the best “period piece” out there!
here’s my best “Period Piece”!
We had a sleepover, we did our nails. We did face masques and toners.Ollieb wanted to try and so I encouraged her to use tampons.
It went like this ” Stop screaming! It doesn’t hurt! Why are you crying?”
I knew that night why poor Ollieb cried. After the third time of making her insert the tampon-I realized the problem. Her tampon had been soaking in nail polish remover!
Forget the cotton string! This is where it’s at!
Best period horror story wins An Amazing Diva Cup! SO get to typing.
