Ok, first off, i will tell you that i am not a guy. So, therefore, i have never been though the pain of periods, the pain of inserting tampons, the
uncomfortableness (sp?) of the entire thing.
I would think that women would not like to try a Mooncup, for a few reasons:
1) It is a new thing for them. People, and, in my experience, women expecially, do not like to try new things.
2) It carries a possibility of touching the menstrual blood. Pretty much everyone I know thinks that menstrual products are dirty, unclean, and will
go out of their way to avoid touching such products.
3) Do you sterilise the mooncup everytime you empty it? does it take a long tim/is it easy to sterilise. The women I know would not like to re-insert
a dirty or contaminated 'Mooncup', basically because of the risk of infection and Toxic Shock Syndrome, both of which can kill or sterilise the
woman in question.
Thats just my two penn'eth worth, and its probably a misguided two penn'eth at that...
