This has been a total revelation! I had an episiotomy when I was giving birth to my daughter a year ago and ever since had found tampons so uncomfortable - they would shift down and press on the scar giving me a sharp pain and a feeling of 'heaviness' in my pelvis. Agony! I decided to try a mooncup as an alternative, and I couldn't be happier. Not only is it more comfortable to insert and remove than tampons were, it stays put and doesn't irritate my scar at all. It's so comfortable and hassle free - I will be spreading the word with other mums who have had episiotomies. Looking forward to saving cash on sanitary products as well as they're a rip off!
