Random Things I Can't Tell Regular People

Sunday, April 3

Defy those male-centric products!

And another thing I can't tell regular people.... I've been indisposed this week. That time of the month that is dreaded when it comes, and feared when it's missed. About 3 years ago (right before I got married) I stumbled upon the best female device ever. It's a little rubber cup, inserted like a tampon, that's totally washable, reusable and comfortable. It was $50CAN when I bought it, but totally worth it. I wear it all the time (when I have my period, at least) and find it so much more convenient (and cheap!) than conventional feminine hygene products. Mine's called a Keeper and I think there's another out there called DivaCup (same concept, same company, I believe, but made of silicone instead of rubber). I checked with my doctor when I first started with it, she said she hadn't heard of it, but didn't know why it would be a problem, and would let me know if there were any health concerns. It's approved by Health Canada, and my doctor didn't warn me of anything so I just keep using it.
I don't really go in much for conspiracy theory, but for hundreds of years, men were in charge of products and marketing. They have no clue what would be good for a woman on her period. The tampon and pad industry must make tonnes of money, so of course they wouldn't want to give up what they have... I wish I could tell more people - try the Keeper, it's good, cheap and you don't have to head to the pharmacy month after month after month after month...
