I am so happy I finally tried Flex Disc! I have always hated tampons and I actually wore mostly pads for a lot of my life until about 5 years ago when I couldn’t stand pads anymore so I switched to tampons. I still hated them though…I hate the dry feeling they cause sometimes, I was always paranoid about TSS and I always had leakage even when my “flow” was light. I started looking into cups a while ago but was nervous because of my TSS paranoia so when I saw these new disks I was hesitantly excited to try them. Less waste, less changing, more abilities to keep on with your life during your period (swimming, sex, running, yoga, do whatever you want!) but they’re not reusable, which took away my TSS fear a bit. I have to say it was so much easier to insert and remove then I thought it was going to be. I kept reading it would take a whole cycle or 2 to get the hang of it but I had no problem with the first disk at all. I watched the video and looked at the instructions and it was so simple! It’s also SO MUCH more comfortable then a tampon. You literally don’t even know it’s there once you have it in. (Don’t forget to take it out though ladies!!! Ha!) Plus I have had hardly any leaking at all…WAY less then when I use tampons. I don’t think it has helped with my cramps honestly but it is definitely more comfortable then a tampon and you don’t feel as bloated and gross with the disk. So yeah 500 pages later…I would 100% recommend this to everyone and anyone!
