FAQ in each issue  
Someone on another community I'm in brought up the point that it would be handy to have info on how to wash cloth pads in the mag, because she's interested in them but not sure on the cleaning thing.... and I can see that if someone did pick up and read a copy who thought the idea was interesting but had never heard of them before, they might want more info...

So what do you think about the idea of having a page at the back that runs through some FAQs of cloth pads and cups... like how to wash them, where to buy and so on...?

While it would be repeated in each issue, if it's at the back people who don't need it don't have to read that page, but anyone new to these products will have a start at some info. And we can use that page to direct people to some of the LJ communities and websites that have more info.

I like that idea. Especially if we leave them out places, dr. offices, bars, coffee shops, etc.

I like that idea. Plus it wouldn't necessarily help only people new to cups/cloth...veterans could always benefit from learning different washing methods or new cup folds.

I really agree :D That would give ladies a bigger picture about them!

I found this site useful. It has a lot of great comparisons and info on different menstrual cups..


Are you still looking for contributions? I have a couple of stories.. the first one is about my mother throwing a "period party" for my babysitter (all her friends were there with their names written on pads on the back of all the chairs, among other embarrassing things I could go into).

The second story is my personal traumatic second period at age 12 that I was too scared to tell anyone about and lasted for months, finally resulting in a blood transfusion!

I also have a couple pieces of art centered around the menstrual cycle, but they aren't too serious.
