I've been using one for two years now and never had an infection from it. The cup has become smelly (a vinegar smell) recently though. I've been trying different methods to clean it, but I might just buy a new one. $25 and lasts for 2 years, sounds good to me. Mine is athena cup. Recently my periods have gotten very light, I only actually bleed 2 days and then have pinkish slime and that period smell another 2 days.
Anyway fuck pads and tampons, cup all the way. Nice to have one less thing I need to spend money on. >>3407
I've had pretty lousy care for the cup and leave it in overnight, and never got a YI from it. I've had YI from fucking dirty dicks though. Men are disgusting, you can't even trust them to wash their own penis before sex. They're like retarded dogs, honestly.
