It was always a hassle - making sure I had everything with me that I needed, having to ask around for pads or tampons if I didn't, obsessing about making sure I didn't get Toxic Shock Syndrome, that pesky little string, etc.Then one day in college, someone told me about the Diva Cup and Lunapads. I don't remember where I was or who told me, but when I heard about them, I knew that they needed to become a part of my life. My roommate ordered a Diva Cup for each of us with a Luna Pad starter kit.With the rigors of school, I'd almost forgotten completely about it until one day, she came running into my room screaming "it came! it came!". We pulled out our Diva Cups and started reading the directions. It took me a couple of months of using the cup to get the hang of it (insert it at the earliest possible time of my period, get my hand a little bit wet, etc) but once I did, I discovered how absolutely freeing it was. No more carrying packages of tampons around with me so I could vigilantly exchange one piece of cotton for another. Now, I could wait until I got home and change my Diva Cup in peace and quiet.For those of you who use tampons, remember how it felt when you switched from pads? How great it was not to have a bulky, blood-filled thing between your legs? A few months ago I was watching TV and a commercial for tampons came on and I found my vaginal muscles literally tensing up in revulsion with the memory of dry cotton (the Diva Cup doesn't absorb all of your natural juices). Tampons for me have become what pads once were - the thing I will use only if I absolutely have to.[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="109" caption="Lunapads"]Lunapads[/caption]Although... now that I have my Lunapads, even pads aren't that bad any more. Lunapads are made out of such a wonderful material that they don't feel at all like regular pads and they're adorable! My favorite ones have cupcakes on them. That's right - cupcakes. Plus, I know I'm not adding tons of waste to the environment with my worn out pads and tampons. I am no longer part of the 14 billion pads and tampons that go into landfills every year and that just feels good.These products have even helped me make friends! Once on a school trip, I found myself rooming with a complete stranger. On the first night, she noticed that I had a Diva Cup and mentioned that she had one too. That conversation started what is now a 5 year friendship and when we tell the story of how we met, inevitably other people ask about the Diva Cup so we get spread the good news.To top it all off, the Diva Cup/Lunapads people are so terrific. They support amazing causes like the New Space for Women's Health in New York and they are a part of Eco-Sexy Earth Day Activities (most recently at our Babeland Brooklyn Location!)To celebrate our love for Lunapads/Diva Cup and their love of Babeland, they are pleased to offer Babeland blog readers a discount on their website.
