Have any of you given any thought to your monthly cycle and what you would do in the event that you were having to survive in the wilderness? Seriously, nothing to be embarrassed about right, we all have to go through it!!
Anyway, I came across some articles about the menstrual cup. Have any of you used these? According to one of the products, the device has been around for decades and is washable and can last up to 10 years. It can be worn for up to twelve hours a day. You just remove and wash and reinsert. I think that this is a great item to purchase and have handy just in case the SHTF. There is nothing to dispose of. The cup that I was researching (the diva cup) is 32.95 and can be ordered online. As woman, this is something that we need to think about, I mean there may come a day when we can't just run to the drug store or local wal-mart and buy our feminine products!!!

Oh freaking YUCK, that thing would be so nasty and dirty and ... ew, just ew.
I'm sorry I'm a guy and should have listened to the topic title for my own good, but t that is the most disgusting thing I've ever heard of. Tampons are nasty enough, but a literal CUP that is worn for several hours during the cycle and can be reused?
GAAAAAh gross, ew, nasty, icky, everything in between. Ugh.
Although I apologize for intruding, as this is a woman's only topic, but that just seems gross. I dont know, would you honestly like reusing something that.. you had down there.. for several hours, all sweaty... bloody and sticky and just all around GROSS?
just stockpile a ton of tampons in case the need for survival ever comes up.. do the same thing people that need medication do, stockpile that ****
