I never knew about these. Where do you buy them, and how hot are they in the parks?

I can absolutely vouch for Jockey skimmers. You can order them from QVC as well as the Jockey website. They are perfect for wearing under a dress. If your skirt blows up, they look like bike shorts. They are not hot at all. You may forget you're wearing them.

I'd second everything Sherry said, above. Plus I also find them at Macy's sometimes.

This is a great post. The only thing I was worried about was making sure to go when my "friend" isn't visiting. lol
This thread gave me some other things to think about for our trip. Specially since I also have a pre teen daughter now as well to worry about with some of these issues.

Hi ladies! What a great thread
I LOVE marykay CC cream (as an alternative to BB cream). I was using the Garnier but MaryKay one is great. I have very oily skin and I love this stuff!

You would just follow the pack. You will naturally come to your "bad week" by following the pack.

Yes, you'd just go back to the normal way you take your pills the following month. It's not uncommon to do this regularly. I used to continuous cycle so I'd only take the placebo and have my time every three months. I've switched to non-pill bc now but it worked great.

A couple things to be aware of though. It may take your body time to adjust so even if you skip the placebo week and jump right to your next pack you may still have issues (it's likely you won't just an FYI)

Also, this works if you have monophasic pills (all pills have the same amount of hormones). If you take triphasic pills (each week has different levels) you can't just start the new pack. You can still try to skip but have to take the pills not from the first week (the Internet is your friend if you're on those kinds of pills).

Good luck!

I haven't taken the placebo pills in years. I do not miss having to deal with a period.

I suggest getting used to it for a couple of months before a trip....
I was just browsing through and loving the talk on the Divacup as this sort of product changed my life 7 years ago and I haven't looked back!
I always feel guilty for not talking about it more as it makes such a positive impact on the environment and is so much healthier for women than the chemical laden pads and tampons (which in my, and my friends experience- actually make you bleed more!!).

Definitely try it out before any trip as pp have suggested it has a learning curve. Also look into other brands. If you are at all a smaller person or a virgin or just very sensitive down there- try a softer brand. I always had trouble with tampons, any pads that weren't all natural and organic, etc. as I am generally super sensitive.
I love the ladycup brand cups as they are a bit smaller and softer. This does mean I have to go to the bathroom every 3 hours on the heaviest flow day but I truly don't feel it and half the time forget I have my period! It's important to test around as each woman is shaped differently. My skinny sister needs the large size lady cup or she has trouble with leakage. It all depends on how you are shaped down there and how heavy your flow is.

The lack of chemicals means less cramps for a lot of people too! I can also say my gynecologist was very pleased I was using this. Said it's the best!

I recommend taking the flushabale toilet paper wipes in the beginning when out. Eventually you get the hang of it and it is not as messy. I wash my hands before always and use the paper towel to open the stall door and close it.
I also empty it in the shower every morning in the hot water and find it a nice start. For sterilizing I use a quarter of a milton tab in a mug- that's all you need. One box of milton tabs lasts at least 2 years.

So now you all know waayyy too much about me but if I can convince even one person to try out cups I'll consider it a success! I haven't bought anything but a pack of sterilizing tablets for my period in 7 years. Not only are the economical and environmental benefits great- it also is healthier. I never worry about going swimming. I never stress about having enough with me or where to buy pads if I am camping or in Egypt. I never feel it unless it's getting full.. I never run out of stock, I never care if there isn't a trashcan in the toilet I'm using (you're really not supposed to flush tampons)... and don't need one in my toilet at home, and it is not an item in my budget!

Have I convinced anyone yet? ^_^

I just bought one and started using it. It's a challenge to get it just right at the beginning. But I agree these are way better than any product out there.

I could have written this myself! I switched to the diva cup a year ago, and have never looked back. One of the best decisions I've ever made in my life...no exaggeration.

Just read this entire thread this week and I will now be trying the BC trick and even talked to my GYN about getting an endometrial ablation. I wish I had read it earlier, I could've gotten it done before my trip. I really hope to not have to deal with my period on vacation. Even with the Diva Cup (which I love), I still have to empty every 4 hours on my heavy days. It would be nice to swim with the kids instead of watching in the hot sun .
