  • I thought maybe I was doing something wrong, but on trying it multiple times and talking with others, we all just came to the conclusion that I was especially sensitive
  • It must also be washed by hand and sometimes emptied during the day, which I found a little gross and awkward– especially if I needed to clean it when I was out in public
  • This might be a great product for some really natural kind of gals, but I think I will stick to my comfortable, soft, non-rubbery, sanitary tampons which do not “snap” at my insides or cause me to humiliate myself
  • I don’t particularly recommend this product to anyone, unless you are just curious and have nothing better to spend money on

      After being pestered by a friend for months to try this product, I finally gave in. I’ve used tampons and pads pretty much all my life, but I was interested in how much money I could save with this product. Supposedly it was more natural, economical, safer, and just generally a genius invention that I would never want to live without once I tried it.

      Wrong.

      The whole idea seemed alien to me from the start. This cup is made of rubber, and smells like rubber– not something I was very excited about putting inside my body for hours at


      a time. It looked as if it was going to be uncomfortable, although I had been assured that it was much more comfortable than tampons were. I was also told it would not leak.

      Without being terribly graphic, putting this thing in place is not comfortable to me at all. You insert it folded to some degree and then it “snaps” open, which is supposed to be miraculous and great and pain free. Well, not for me… it hurt. A lot. I thought maybe I was doing something wrong, but on trying it multiple times and talking with others, we all just came to the conclusion that I was especially sensitive. Besides the pain on insertion, the “stem” was very uncomfortable and I could always sense it there. I never have that problem with a tampon. Even after cutting it shorter as was recommended, I could still feel it, and I did not want to eliminate it for fear I would “lose” the cup and end up having to explain the embarrassing situation to my doctor.

      I attempted to wear the Keeper for several days in a row. Each day ...

      I had leakage, and was forced to wear a pad anyway, so what is the point of wearing the device in the first place? It is not saving me money because I must use pads with it.

      It must also be washed by hand and sometimes emptied during the day, which I found a little gross and awkward– especially if I needed to clean it when I was out in public. Most public restrooms only have sinks outside of the stalls, which would necessitate me carrying it out there for everyone to see while I rinsed it

      off, then go back inside to re insert it.

      I cant even imagine how other women would react to this. I am not thrilled with the idea of drawing that much attention to myself. Besides that, imagine the mess!

      This might be a great product for some really natural kind of gals, but I think I will stick to my comfortable, soft, non-rubbery, sanitary tampons which do not “snap” at my insides or cause me to humiliate myself! I don’t particularly recommend this product to anyone, unless you are just curious and have nothing better to spend money on.
