I used tampons from the beginning (I was 13 or 14 I think) because I did alot of swimming but just wondered what people think about encouraging young girls to try a mooncup - I am really thinking ahead here though! :lol:


Errmmm not sure Annette, very forward planning though!!! :lol: :lol: Is there an age suggestion on their website at all. :? I definitely want Emma to use them though and will hopefully convert her with the prettiness of them!! :lol: :lol:

Annette, I remember when I was looking into them I found a US site where the woman had tried EVERY menstrual cup on the market and for her daughter (can't remember her exact age but early teens) she got the Diva small one as apparently its the smallest one on the market. I used tampons from about 10 or 11 (got af just after turning 10 :shock: :shock: ).

I think if I had a daughter I'd encourage her to use them at home but for school etc I think dispos would be better. Can you imagine if some horrid boy found them in her bag?? :? :evil: :evil:

My friends all think I'm mad, I've spoken to everyone about MC and even showed it around when I first got it :lol: :lol: :twisted: :twisted: Not shy me!!

My two (home-edded) older ones both have periods and use cloth *most* of the time. I got some throwaway ones for dd1 when she went on an activity hol and they're slowly being used up. I got her some tampons then too, and a small MC. Neither of them are past the 'eww' factor of using tampons or MC yet, lol. Tbh I don't think there is an age as such, just when they're comfy enough with themselves to firtle around...

Re daughters using tampons / mooncups. I used tampons right from my first period as they were lying around (didn't even tell my mum, until she spotted blood on my jeans after 2nd AF) and the only size indoors was large, but then large tampons would be smaller than mooncup I am guessing.

I think csp would be harder for girls to carry around / change at school, whereas mooncup no one would know it was there - but problems rinsing all day as loos normally have sinks outside.

That's simply enough solved - just do what I do when I'm at work which is to take a small bottle of water in with me and use that to rinse it... :)

All my mates that i have told about csp think i'm a crazy mad woman (can't be far from the truth :lol: ) but my ex boss thought they were a fab idea so she asked me to make her some to swap for some of her knitted socks, at least one person was converted by my csp blabbering :hohoho:

Only people I've told really seem to be reluctant to try it - but think it's a good idea :roll:
