Monthly cycles
« on: September 18, 2011, 10:42:50 AM »
I didn't see this topic listed and I've noticed most women instinctly want to stock up on feminine products, but that is not cost effective and it takes up too much space.

I purchased The Moon Cup (a reusable menstrual cup) and several reusable Luna Pads daytime and nighttime pads for my daughter. You can easily find these easily online or at a local health food store. The Keeper is designed to last 10 years.

The Keeper is a latex cup and my girlfriend swears by it. She has used hers for nearly 10 years and has ordered more. The Moon Cup is made of silicone and for women who are allergic to latex. Another cup out there is called The Diva.

I imagine we can sew are own menstrual pads in the future, but ordered some to have something to copy. I ordered an extra Moon Cup as I know someone else will need it or would be a valuable trade item.

It's an good topic. I've not tried to make my own pads yet, mostly because I think it could get messy on work days at the office. However, I do know a place to get several links for patterns and ideas. Decided not to try the moon or diva cup for now but think it is a great idea.

Here's the links  - it's also a good site for many other survival ideas.

This is a link to a gal who sells home made ones.

The gals that I've read about that have made their own seem to really like them. Same with the moon cups.

This is what I did, and I am glad I did it.   After four children (all sections) and almost rupturing during the forth pregnancy, I got my tubes tied.   My moons were very heavy and lasted about 10 or more days sometimes.   My doctor suggested an ablation.   So I had it done...they have different methods.   I did the balloon ablation first and it cut my moon in half.   Then I had it done again a few months later with the roller ball method.    Now, I don't flow at all, just slight spotting.   I still ovulate.    You are required to have your tubes tied to have this procedure done.   It seems that roller ball is more effective.   Just thought I'd pass it along.

I had basically the same thing done.  It just took one time, and it was towards the end of my time for menses anyway.  Now all done.  Excellent!!!  But I still get a bit moody when it would normally have been that time of the month, and I still those hot flashes!!  Has this happened to you at all?  But, I think I'm quite a bit older....so probably not the hot flashes part and those are not fun!!

I've wondered about this too.  I figured when I ran out of my stock, I'd have to make my own pads.  I've never heard of these cups.  I'll have to check them out.

Mariposa I feel this is an excellent idea. I have not heard of side effects from this.
If there are any someone please post.
I don't see how it could cause many problems.
Thanks,

Hello All!

I would like to add to this important topic.

For the past 50 years or so, women in "Westernized" societies have used disposable sanitary napkins and/or tampons when we were going through our cycles. Though many of us have started taking care of what we eat and what expose our bodies to, many wont think twice in using these chemically treated products.

The following are a couple of articles that talk about this subject and mention alternative methods:


http://www.undergroundhealth.com/the-dangers-of-tampons-and-pads/

*excerpt below*

Quote

Due to the chemical processes used to create sanitary napkins, there’s a risk that women who use menstrual pads can experience irritation and infection. If a woman does experience a vaginal infection from using a pad, she may experience the following symptoms during her menstrual cycle:

Slight fever and headache

Itchy skin

Cervical inflammation

External inflammation of the vagina

White discharge

Searing heat or pain

Endometrial inflammation

These symptoms could be further aggravated by the chemicals used to make your pads white and appealing for mass audiences. Chemicals like bleach and toxins are frequently used in the manufacturing of menstrual pads, and there’s some risk that a chemical residue could linger even through the production process, putting your health at risk.


http://www.collective-evolution.com/2013/01/13/still-using-tampons-or-pads-you-should-read-this/

*excerpt below*

Quote
The Tampon and Pad industry is a $718 Million dollar market, and tampons and pads are necessities. This got me questioning the production and ethical value behind these products. They are mass-produced, and heavily marketed and cheaply made, out of bleached rayon and plastics. Why is it that we never see ads for the much safer alternatives such as cotton products, reusable washable pads and menstruation cups? Any of these alternatives are much more economical and are about a gillion times safer for the environment. Up until a few months ago, I didn’t even know that there were alternative products, or even think that there was any potential risk from using generic menstruation products.


Here are some sites where one can purchase reusable pads and cups:

Tree Hugger Cloth Pads - family owned and they plant a tree for every purchase!
http://www.treehuggerclothpads.com/

Sckoon Organics - they have cups and pads
http://www.sckooncup.com/

MotherMoonPads- family run, they have cool designs like "My Little Pony" or "Star Wars" for the teens, they also sell heating pads and nursing pads
https://www.etsy.com/shop/mothermoonpads

The Cloth Canoe- family run, she makes and extra absorbency/postpartum pad and cloth baby diapers too!
https://www.etsy.com/shop/theclothcanoe



Hope this is Helpful!

Excellent ideas Chaunska used to post.
