Second Segment: Questions From Listeners
Lilly asks, “I have found myself more uncomfortable with internal feminine hygiene products as of late and find pads to be uncomfortable – would you recommend the diva cup or do you have any other natural feminine hygiene products you’d recommend?”
Emily and Janet say, while this topic is taboo to some it is important to talk about. It’s important to reflect what we’re putting in our bodies and how it effects our bodies. The Diva Cup is a great choice because it’s comfortable, practical, reusable, and washable. There are also cotton tampons and pads, it seems that cloth pads are making a comeback as well.
