I think I vote before but didn't post, becuase I wasn't exactly sure if it was just a fluke, but my flow pattern has def. changed and is lighter.

I would like to tell a couple people about this because- heck, who wouldnt' want lighter flows...

I do remember getting info on something like the diva cup when I was a teen. And I was interested- but didn't have the money or a credit card to buy them. But I do have some issues that may be related to diva cup use, so the jury's still out on that one for me.

BAck to cloth, the thing I'm thinking that if I tell this to others they are going to say that it must be because my cycle changed after having a child... and I really couldn't counter that. Or that it changed because I'm getting older?

Is there any truth that the change might just have happened on its own--- after childbirth or just because I'm older?

Thoughts on ways to spread the love to non-crunchy skeptical types?
