red85 I totally agree that we should choose whichever method works for us. For me, the menstrual cup isn’t only convenient, comfortable and less expensive, I’m glad not to put chemicals up in my vagina, frankly. I’m “middle-aged” and getting pretty freaked out about all the chems in my life. That the cup has an environmental benefit is a bonus. Also, I’d like to think that I try to do better than men in most aspects of my life!
