飽受陰道相關疾病所苦的我,在亞洲單車旅行結束後,到書店買了一本翻譯的女性聖經來惡補自己殘缺的性知識,才更一進步知道這月事杯在美國叫「the Keeper」。在紐西蘭時,曾經嘗試在藥房尋找它,但是似乎並不是太多人知道它。直到我暫時在Adelaide落腳,我才又想起,我應該擁有一個月事杯。

依據統計,每名婦女一生使用「1萬」個棉條或棉片。這些棉片棉條造成的垃圾量和花費是很大的。我很高興有機會省下這筆錢和垃圾。在網路上輸入 "menstrual cup"或是"the keeper"就可以蒐集到許多相關資訊(有的網站甚至教你自行製作可反覆使用的衛生棉)。

月事杯,像個小杯子,開口大,底部較小,連有一小段把柄,用來將月事杯移出體內。我花了一早上看這些資訊。美國"the keeper"算是歷史比較悠久的廠牌;類似的產品,是新興的"the mooncup"──月亮杯。兩個基本上只有材質上的不同,以及因此顏色上的不同。我選擇了英國的月亮杯,原因很簡單──比較便宜,只要18.9英鎊,包括國際郵資。而且可以有三個月經週期的試用期,若不喜歡可以退還。一個禮拜後,來自英國的月亮杯就躺在我的信箱裡。

寂寞的衛生棉條  李性蓁  (20050902)




    衛生棉條早在一九二九年,便由一位美國醫師Earle Haas發明,一九三六年正式上市,歐洲方面則由西德一位女醫師於一九五○年發展推出,早已是項新產品了,但眼看著台灣的衛生棉有了翅膀,染了多彩顏色,散發出了香味,面對櫃子起碼有數十種選擇,然可可憐憐縮在一邊的衛生棉條,似乎還停留在希臘女人以麻布綑綁木條的代替品的時代,毫無進化。

凡妮莎很高興有這個機會可以完成這次活動,讓大家分享其他跟妳有一樣使用小棉條習慣女生的想法。往後還會再舉辦類似的活動唷~~大家要努力的細心的深刻的紀錄下來學習使用小棉條兒的旅程,就如同我所說的,當女生是一件很幸福的事情,我們不應該被悶熱不方便的生理期給打倒了,對不對?  ^_^









  說到棉條....剛開始第一次看到的是ob的棉條(台灣好像真的只能買到ob)是在我阿姨家的浴室,那時候超好奇的,所以我就偷偷把盒子打開來看,但是我也搞不懂那是要做什麼的....白白短短的一條,當時也好像只有手推式的吧(已經是六七年前的事情囉!!),後來實在覺得太好奇了,就跑去問我阿姨啦...結果她大力跟我推薦!!她跟我說那是衛生棉條,而且超好用...完全不用擔心外漏。不過我回去問我媽,我媽說沒有性經驗的女孩子最好不要用.....所以我就不敢嘗試囉!!一直到上大學以後,因為我算流量還蠻多的吧,所以每次那個來都很不舒服常要擔心外漏,晚上睡覺更悽慘@@而且肚子都會超漲的!!還要墊超長的綿綿...Q_Q 。我不管剛來或是要結束,都要墊超長32公分的夜用超長型綿綿...真的很不舒服,或是把兩條綿綿接起來變成40公分超超長那種,我媽還叫我去買嬰兒的尿布,試過超多方法,真的要哭出來了!!後來,有一次因為綿綿的網狀設計,我好像有點過敏吧...結果起疹子,又紅又癢真的很難過,覺得整個人心情都被影響(會覺得很丟臉,因為很癢@@,這真的一點也不誇張....)所以我就不管那麼多了,我下定決心要換小棉條兒來"挑戰"看看...(又期待又怕受傷害!!)。

















  慾望城市中,除了那個鏡頭,還有另外一次我印象深刻的是Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte跟Miranda一起進女廁,Carrie從她的宴會小包包裡面抽出了一支小棉條兒分給Charlotte用,那是我第一次明顯的感受到小棉條兒的方便性,再小的包包都可以裝小棉條,完全不用遮遮掩掩。我還記得我國中的時候去廁所,口袋都鼓鼓的因為放了兩片衛生棉(量多時一次都要用兩片,連起來用),去廁所的路上還要遮著隆起的口袋怕被男生發現,或是生理期跟男性朋友去吃飯的時候,我說:"對不起,我去一下廁所",男生就會問:"那妳拿個大包包幹麻??我們可以幫你顧啦!!",然後那些笨男生就會被我旁邊的女生瞪!!!。這些經驗相信大家都有過,所以我覺得很幸運~~很幸運可以脫離那種遮遮掩掩的生活,生理期來的時候只要從包包抽出一支像糖果的東西,輕輕握在手掌心就可以去廁所了。
