i've never seriously thought about using a cup or luna pads, but after reading this, i think i'm going to switch...and it makes me love my period even more, cramps, mess, and all.

Yeah, it's amazing how these companies seek to screw over the females they serve. I was just nodding madly at the part where it mentioned the increased prices for a box of tampons while giving less -- boy, have I noticed!

Oh well, I have my Lunette and ain't never looking back. Hurray for supporting smaller economies/women owned companies!

(I went ahead and deleted your double post: it looked like you were linking to a page telling you how to work with circuits, so I figured it was an accident. [Smile] )

Yeah...it was the essay on the industry in Karen Hopport's The Curse that cause me to switch to organic tampons...lemme tell ya: I can TELL the difference between commercial (shudder) and my organic cotton tampons. I will never go back.
