I wanted this to work but they just aren't for me. I'm not sure if it is my anatomy (I'm in my mid thirties and have had a baby - not sure if that changes things) but I was always going to the bathroom and every time you sit down you are having to mess with it again because it does come out not all the way but some. You can't ever not feel it so it was not comfortable to me and the discs are larger than I thought they would be. I was also never sure I had it in correctly so I kept pushing it further and further back. I also felt like it pushed on my bladder and made me have to go to the bathroom more which again kept pushing it out.
I tried it on a light day per the instructions initially and it was ok no leaks but I think I messed with it so much it got lodged too far back and I had to go digging to get the thing out. In order to take them out its best to just get in the shower because they are gross. The next day I tried it was an extremely heavy day and it was a disaster. After having to run to the bathroom twice because I knew I was leaking I gave up and went back to a tampon. Maybe I just haven't gotten the hang of it but it was not a good experience for me.
Leaked both period cycles I tried it. Watched multiple videos on placement. I did everything it said to do and it still completely leaked out. It does say on the box that it doesn’t work for some women. I guess I’m that woman it doesn’t work for.
Is noone talking about how gross it is to pull it out??? Talk about a blood bath. And how do I discard a gross bloddy disc??! I know you're suposed to put it back in the wrapper. But again..gross...blood on your fingers and everywhere..... and also, it does leak. Do not buy if you've had children. This ain't it. A cup works better anyday of the week!
The absolute best! Super comfortable (WAY better then a tampon)! I was a bit nervous to use for the first time, but it was so easy! Literally can’t believe I hesitated to try these! Won’t go back to anything else! Bye bye Tampax and Always!
I’m 40 and I’ve always worn tampons. Recently, I’ve realized that they weren’t working out for me very well anymore, I was either leaking through super-plus tampons or I was pulling out a dry tampon. Yikes. After seeing an ad for Flex Disc, I decided to give them a try. The first time, I felt like I was back to being 13 and trying to understand my anatomy in a way that I typically don’t engage. Lol! With some trepidation, I followed the instructions and things went pretty smoothly. I like how it naturally empties a bit during typical daytime toilet use. When it came time for removal, I won’t lie, it’s messy, it’s bloody and a little smelly after 10-12 hours. Fortunately, I was in the privacy of my own home bathroom & just washed my hands. I wouldn’t want to remove this product in a public restroom or any other type of shared bathroom scenario. Insertion got easier over 3 days, and I’m getting more accustomed to the removal process. So far, I’m happy to report no daytime leaking. The only time I had leaking was first thing in the morning of day 2, I suppose running to the toilet when I wake up is necessary. I haven’t tried sexIng with it yet but it was one of the selling points for me. So far so good! Happy to know Target carries the product so I don’t have to rely on ordering through the company. They are a little pricey compared to tampons, I will use all 8 that came in my starter pack.
I completed the initial trial and thought the experience was OK. I prefer tampons still because I feel like the protection is more reliable. I was unpleasantly surprised with how unhelpful the Flex product customer service was. I had a really poor experience with them, which made the purchase even more disappointing. I can't support their product/business or give them my money again after the shady responses they sent me.
I'm only giving this four stars because the disc never would stay in place for me. Other than that it helped reduce my cramps, no bloat, felt very comfortable, it unfortunately kept leaking for me and I tried this several times.
