Pros: no waste, lasts a very long time
Cons: is different than a tampon, so takes a little time to get used to
you do have to be relaxed putting in and taking out so that it is done correctly, if you put it in wrong you will know, otherwise you don't feel it, you can wear it all day, i never have to worry about running out of tampons, it can be a bit of a challenge in public restrooms, but you work it out. as long as its in correctly, you dont have to worry about a thing! love it!!! have not bought tampons in years! such a renewable/recyclable item!
