Do you hate dealing with periods, tampons and pads on the trail or anywhere it’s not convenient to be in the bathroom a lot? Magazine Editor Lucy, a.k.a Wonder Woman, reviewed FLEX Disc, which is a little a like the menstrual cup, but a lot different.

We have all heard of the menstrual cups but have you heard of the menstrual discs?!

What’s the difference?

• last up to 12 hours (it always does for me)

• mess free period sex (it’s actually true!!!  And he won’t even feel it)

• you can swim with it in (the cup always fills with water and makes a mess for me)

• 60% less waste than tampons (we like less waste!)

• no need to wash and rinse (a problem I had with the cups while camping)

• designed for your body (I never feel it in there, once it’s in I am good to go)

• Unlike tampons and menstrual cups which plug the vaginal canal, FLEX sits just past the vaginal canal and can’t be felt at all once in place

• reduces cramps in 70% of users (it actually does!  I have no idea how but it does)

• not linked to TSS (something I always worried about with tampons)

Why did I try FLEX

Two years ago I was diagnosed with blood clots. Therefore, the doctors took me off of birth control and put me on blood thinners. This is a bad combination when it comes to “Aunt Flo”. I have been on my period those entire 2 years without a break and it’s like Niagara Falls!  I am always looking for better ways to deal with “Flo” and make my situation a little easier. FLEX has been a miracle for me. It’s almost like I am not even on my period because I only have to think about it twice a day.

Would I recommend FLEX?  Absolutely!  In fact I have told all my friends about it and I asked Hike Like A Woman if I could tell all of you about it.

OBGYN approved and body-safe.  FLEX is made of a medical-grade polymer used in surgical tools that go inside the body.  It is FDA registered, hypoallergenic, BPA and phthalate free and made without natural rubber latex or silicone.

How much can it hold?  FLEX can hold up to 6 teaspoons of fluid (or the equivalent of five tampons). The average woman menstruates about 3 teaspoons in 24 hours. FLEX must be changed every 12 hours, so the average woman will have only 1.5 teaspoons of fluid inside.

Is it messy? I feel like it is less messy than the cup. It holds the liquid better and you simply throw it away rather than having to wash it out.

The company is very personal. With personalized emails sent when you place your order.  They are very willing to answer any questions. And there are videos and tutorials on how to use the disc.

  1. I was so excited to see this post! I started using Flex about four months ago and have been pleased ever since. I have used it while rock climbing, swimming, hiking, and mountain biking. The claims of less cramping and reduced Flo time are true!! I recommend using Flex to all my friends….including my local HLAW ambassador!
