    Ha ha...yes, it would easier on the wallet.  But I mean, Dalton McGuinty did us a huge favour and didn't apply HST to our feminine hygiene projects...lmao :)

     

    Hmm...might look into it again.  Thanks!

      I bought Instead a couple of years ago and gave it a shot then. I didn't like it at all. After reading this thread I may give it another go. It works OK for periods that are quite light?

      This is honestly the best thing I've ever done!!!! I bought mine 5 years ago and haven't looked back. It's great for light periods, heavy periods, helped with cramps, and you don't have to mess with it more than twice a day! I get up in the morning and wash it, then wash it before bed...it really doesn't get any easier than that. Plus I feel so much better that I'm not creating any waste with all the packaging that pads and tampons come in....so environmentally friendly!!!!

        First I have heard of this. Sounds very strange but intriguing. Not sure if I would trust it. Would love to hear more reviews though :)

        What's not to trust!? Tampons are brutal and pads are worse lol. http://lunapads.com/diva-cup.html check out the website. I bought mine years ago and would NEVER go back. There are hundreds of reviews on the divacup website. Seriously the best thing I have ever done :)

          The instead is somewhat different than the Diva

           

          I use a different brand of cup, but it's by far the best thing I've ever done.

            Do it! Use the promo code LUNANEWS when you buy it online from http://lunapads.com/diva-cup.html for $5 off! Or they now sell them at London Drugs and basically any health store :) I did it as an 'experiment' for a paper I was writing and was like, HOW have I not heard of this?! Changed my life.

              I still can't figure out how to insert. I bought a box and 6 of my co-workers looked at the box for hours discussing how to insert it

              http://divacup.com/how-it-works/how-it-works/   This is the how-to page. There are also lots of videos on youtube :) It's WELL worth the learning curve :)
