FLEX Menstrual Disc FREE TRIAL ⇢ https://fbit.co/4vIS
Hey loves! Today is all about the FLEX Menstrual Disc Review! It is a painless and much more comfortable alternative to pads, which feel like dirty diapers, and tampons, which put you at risk for Toxic Shock Syndrome! Try to keep an open mind about the FLEX Menstrual Disc, and click the link for your free trial if you're willing to give it a shot!
What I think I'll do is: work, use pads. Not at work, use flex. Because sometimes I work 13 hours and this would be the worse thing to use if I'm at work lol. It'll be like the Shining.
Or to be extra safe, I'll wear it, but also put on a pad too.
Something reusable would be more efficient and less harmful for the environment. I like the diva cup, but my husband won't give me a break so I may have to get disks lol. Not this one, too expensive. Like way too expensive
Does anyone know if these are safe sitting on your cervix like they do? I’m using Soft disc and I’m just wondering. I know it says they’re hypoallergenic and all but just curious about blood pooling around the cervix. It’s meant to flow out and not sit there right?
You guys, you only bleed like a teaspoon every several hours. This holds like 5 tablespoons. Pads and tampons only hold up to like one teaspoon. I had to have a blood transfusion(donated blood) and I know how much blood is too much blood. If you're really bleeding that much, it's not normal. Pads and tampons make it look like it's more blood than it actually is, maybe thats where the confusion is
I actually started using these recently and I also have the cup. I have to say so far as a perimenopausal woman subject to Flows that you think might kill you I like these. You definitely have to put them in properly so I always wear a very thin pad ( if I'm going out of the house) and have backup just in case. But that's no different than having extra tampons or carrying pads around in your purse anyway. We know how it goes. I have both of the cup and the discs. They both equally work well. I just like the option of having the discs in the event that there's some sex on the horizon you can actually do it without all of the mess. But you're definitely going to want to let your gentlemen know in the event that there's some leakage. 😉 I enjoyed the review. Thank you.
Thanks for the review. I currently have mine as well and have questions on inserting the Flex Disc. I feel like my question needs to be a phone call. Lol I'm not inserting correctly, should I insert as I am going to use a tampon but shift down when I'm going up? 😑
I love it. I wear it for the day time and my tip to avoid mess is take it out while in the shower! I use a tampon still at night just cause I don’t shower in the morning and wanna avoid the messy part when I’m in a rush getting ready
Thanks Ash .... very good details. I do not like the sound of that though .... yuck. They need to go back to the drawing board with that product ... sounds awful. I wouldn't spend money on that! London UK
After watching @Vickylogan's video I tried the soft cup and I REALLY wanted it to work but i kept "leaking" I originally thought my period was too heavy for it but I guess I've just been putting it in wrong but I've watched so many videos of how to put it in and other people's results (even one where she showed her blood in the cup) but yet...still ending up with a mess smh and I tried it for 2 seperate periods...I'm so sick of using pads and tampons so next month I'll try the Diva Cup and see how that works for me...
I use softcups and I love them! They are exactly the same thing as the flex except you buy them in store where they are significantly cheaper and you get about twice as many discs. Don't be afraid to try this!
I agree that cups are pretty awesome I think the only difference with the disks is if you want to have intercourse on your period you can use these in place of the actual cups. Otherwise they are both great alternatives.
I use soft cups, i guess the cheaper version of flex. lol But def more accessible and and it comes with 12 for like $7. Anyway, I just started using them and I was sold on how well they worked until it moved out of place and it was like a river of blood trying to escape! lol omg. I think i cause of the position i was in prior, made it shift or something, so all the blood it was collecting started to rush out. but i still love them. I would just wear a liner like i would with tampons.
I tried the diva cup because of Vicky. it hurts to put it in for me but that's just how my vajayjay is... n I could feel the stem constantly but I refuse to cut it cuz I don't want the cup to get stuck in there. BUT it works tho. it caught everything! I had a tiny bit of spotting but I think it was the blood that was already coming out from when I took it out n put it back in. I never really did it back to back. I would take it out n bathe n then put it back in. but yeah... lol
Sounds expensive compared to the softcup. Which is literary the same exact thing. I think i paid about 10 something for a box of 14. Needless to say, my experience was about the same. The disc failed once, but overall the protection during the other days was great. I agree it should come with a way to let you know that you have inserted it correctly
Clearly this will be sufficient for some women, but for somebody like me who has a heavy flow I would never try this. And I certainly would not try it without a pad as a backup. besides, putting plastic inside your vagina for long periods of time to me is never good idea.
I'm perimenopausal which means there are moments I can flood like I'm bleeding out and so far I haven't had an issue as long as it's in place properly. if I go out in public I definitely wear a very thin pad just in case but it's no different than when I wore tampons. these are just a safer alternative without the smell and you can have intercourse with them in if you so choose to. I have both the cup and the discs. I like them both.
kocoa berry I agree. I have a super heavy period for the first few days into my cycle. I need that reassurance that what I use, will do the job. So, I'm sticking to my tamps. Thanks though Ashley for your honest opinion! I was curious about this product.
Ashley Devonna I enjoy it. I cleanse it with vagisil ph balance only and make sure it's completely free from the cleanser to avoid a yeast infection. My hands are throughly clean when I go to retrieve it. One device for $30-35 comes with a cute pouch for storing and you keep and replace per the directions. I've used the same for maybe 4 periods now and I enjoy it. Damn the mess of pads and the blood smell from the blood hitting the air when it leave the body. Exercise is great with diva cup its good. I would suggest until you get this flex down wear a thin pad. I did with the diva cup the first 2
they're basically the same.. after a while you dont even feel it but i dont think the cup goes up as far as the disc.. the silicon seems much thicker (so when the time comes i think sex with it in is out of the picture lol) & it is reusable but it starts to smell after so many uses
Jasmine Taylor I actually heard Vicky Logan say that the chemicals in tampons make your cycle last longer. It intrigued me and I researched it for days and I couldn't find anything that validated that.
Is Flex and Softcups the same company? I've been using softcups for a year and after learning how to use it properly I really started to love it. It took me 3 cycles to finally get to where I could insert and remove it properly.
I appreciate your candor & details!! I love it when women are open about hygiene, self care & grooming!! We need more of this in the public space! But, American culture has improved in this area, compared to, say the 60s & their level of openness & communication regarding this topic.
This may sound cray but still after 3 children & an active, healthy sex life with my husband... I'm still scared of things like this flex thingy, Deva cup or anything similar. IDK IDK... I never even used tampons except for during cheerleading in high school (& nearly spazzed every time back then)...
Just1Me Rayanae 🤣🤣yaaaas! Not half, not some but all the blood! +you know the more flexes in the pack the more prices get way too high. It just sounds like a lot of work and insecurity. Imma 7 day girl and ain nobody got time for that, even on a light day...I won't say never just not right now.
I would suggest trying it. You won't even feel those blood clots but you will see them when you dump the contents in the toilet. I would gladly take this over a tampon that leaves you dry or sitting in a soggy pad all day. I didn't think I would like menstrual cups but once I got the hang of them, there is NO going back to pads or tampons. You get really good at removing them mess free with practice. It's at least worth a try. You might find you love it since you can't even feel it. I have forgotten I am on my period
ToyaK's Reality The disc actually catches those clots as well ! Women with heavy periods have had great success with it. They use less pads and tampons. It also helps with cramps, and that icky feeling that we all experience.
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
