Here is the stash. I have acquired a dozen pads (not all pictured), a Diva Cup, and 2 sea sponge tampons. With some planning & care I need not use any more disposable gear for my period! That is the goal.
I will keep trying with the Diva Cup. It's interesting that one commenter said that using the Cup actually shortens her periods. I just can't get the darn thing to stop leaking! However, there are good alternatives. I really enjoyed using the washable pads for this past cycle. They were soft, comfortable, and didn't slip on the undies. Here's to a greener moontime!
