I am sure that I can imagine what the cave women and native americans did, however, having always had the option of going into the store and buying sterile products, I can't bring myself to imagine me doing it the way that they did. There are many reasons why our life spans are longer...I think that being more aware of germs and being more sanitary plays a role... I was seeking opinions on the cup device...

How about cat furballs ?
Completely free, readily available, reusable, great for starting a fire, can be broken into smaller balls when finished with and used for fishing bait.

I also suppose that if you attach a piece of string like a tampon they could double up as a tea infuser.

Paintball now there's another -----

I know, but like someone said earlier, it is really no nastier that walking around with a soiled pad laying on your skin either, and from what some of the users of the cup have been saying, I don't think it would be that bad.

If this subject was a cure for itchy, smelly scrotum....the thread would go on for 389 pages of yahoooo and wooohooos from men who's hands are free to use a keyboard again.

Women bleed. it is an inconvenience but one that cannot be ignored in dire times when people are used to the modern availability to products that may not be so easy to find in a disaster.

A friend of mine has one and swears by it, I have thought of getting one as femine hygiene products are not that good for you and take ages to break down once in landfill. Moon cups are far more 'greener' . Most eco web sites sell them. Give it a shot.... and men who find it ewwww and yuk be grateful that you don't go through it!!

I have thought of this topic and especially during the last 'close to Martial Law event' in the California fire evacuations at the stadiums.

Seriously, if you love a woman or even KNOW a woman..how could YOU help?

This isn't funny at all when you think about it.

"From 23 countries, including the United States, 132,000 prisoners (with 20 percent being Jewish) were encamped there. The camp was filled beyond its capacity. One thousand women were held in a barrack built to hold only a few hundred.

The women were raped, tortured, starved and lethally injected. Experiments were conducted on them as well.

Some women's menstrual cycles stopped while at Ravensbrück.

"One woman said, 'For us, it was a good thing that we didn't have our periods because of the horrible sanitary conditions. There was no toilet paper whatsoever,'" Saidel said. "Paper was dangerous; it was a way to communicate. Having paper was punishable by death."

in the book The Jewish Women of Ravensbrück Concentration Camp the women were made to work as the blood ran down their legs...cold or heat.
(btw, others had to walk in it, male or female).

books.google.com... nogSA&hl=en&ei=W_RPSpjgIISWtgew5symBA&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1

If you find this subject so repugnant, leave. You must not be born of a woman and therefore not human.

Hello Everyone,

I've thought about this a lot too, and last year I switched over to reusable pads. (Luna pads, specifically). I love them. I considered the cup, and my really good friends use it and LOVE it; unfortunately I have (as many here probably do) an extremely heavy flow, and I suspect the cup wouldn't really handle it that well. The reusable pads do as they have inserts for when you are heavier. Just like the other person who was talking about it - they aren't gross, and you just have to store them until you can wash them (they make waterproof storable bags for that). If you google sew menstrual pads, you can find directions for sewing your own pads even. So far, this is the best option I have figured out.

Cheers!

I will do some research on these as well. If I might ask, what is the cost of the Luna pads?

it would to me at least be no different than using a diaphragm, and since I hated THAT..................well you get where my thoughts are, not that I wouldn't try it if it were the only surefire item to use in a SHTF situation, i'm not that closed minded.

I won't even dignify some of the brutal comments made by some (not all) of the men in this thread with a response... I have one here I can torture (EG)
