I'd like some more information about the Keeper. Websites, personal opinions etc, would be great. I'm considering it.<br><br>
I work at a medical clinic and yesterday a young girl came in with a stuck tampon. It's not the first time I've seen this where they tear or get stuck. Freaks me out. Time to consider alternatives.<br><br>
Please educate me.

Where's Equipro? She's the Keeper expert. There was another tread about this a little while back, maybe that has some good info?

Ooh.. my favorite subject. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
There are a ton of threads around that mention the keeper, and I'm a bit too lazy right now to type all about my complete love for it. Here you go:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6283" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&threadid=6283</a><br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6471" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&threadid=6471</a><br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?s=&threadid=5326" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&threadid=5326</a><br><br><br><br>
They don't all start off about the keeper, but EquiPro & I seem to always turn the conversation that direction. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Also, I was answering so many PMs about insertion tips, that I finally saved one that I can stock-reply with, should you need any advice when you get one.

HI! Goddess of the Keeper here!<br><br><br><br>
You can purchase the Keeper online at<br><br><br><br><a href="http://thekeeperstore.com" target="_blank">http://thekeeperstore.com</a><br><br><br><br>
The price in the US is $35 + $2.00 S+H. I love the fact that they offer a 3 month money back guarantee.<br><br><br><br>
If I can answer any question, please post them here or go to these discussions:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?s=&threadid=5413&highlight=keeper" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...ghlight=keeper</a><br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6283&highlight=keeper" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...ghlight=keeper</a><br><br><br><br>
Also, if you do a veggie board search and type in "keeper", it will give you all the posts where the word is used. There's a lot of info here.

Yay! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:"> We converted another! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> Instead is crap, the Keeper rocks. Don't worry -- the concept is the same, but the design of the Keeper is much better -- less spill-able. Remember to be patient at first and that it takes a few tries to cut it to the right size before it's comfy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Okay, How is the keeper when you are out in public. If you have to empty it while in a public washroom, do you have to wash it first and and how much practice does it take to reinsert? Can you wear it on light days too?

i think i read somewhere that you can just wipe it out with toilet paper, and someone in one of the threads recommended taking a wet paper towel into the stall with you to clean it out.<br><br><br><br>
what's wrong with Instead? i was considering trying one because the drug stores here sell them.

ugh! instead was very leak prone and hard to put in....reminded me of my first go-round with the diaphragm...except it wasn't springloaded so i didn't have to chase it around the bathroom!! NOT user-friendly at all! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Keepers are the best. It's one of the best purchases I've ever made. Over the long run, it's much cheaper and much more environmentally friendly. Safer, too, IMO.<br><br><br><br>
I've done the wet paper towel thing when emptying it in public. However, I've found that I only have to empty it twice in a day- once in the morning and once at night (in the shower, which is *very* convenient).<br><br><br><br>
Get a keeper, ladies! You won't regret it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Since the Keeper is not in any way associated with TSS, you can wear it on light days. You can take it out as often as you want, though most people only have to take it out once in the morning and once in the evening, so the public restroom issue doesn't come up often.<br><br><br><br>
I posted about the wet paper towel elsewhere -- it's a bit easier to do than wiping it off with dry toilet paper, though I <i>suppose</i> that would work. Personally, I wouldn't try it.<br><br><br><br>
Lunapads are good, but you won't need them if you have the Keeper. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

they're like gladrags, they're just a cloth version of disposable pads.<br><br>
honestly, when i have the cash i think i will get the keeper, but i will also get a lunapad or two as backup and because i have a few days a week before my period that i get a fair bit of spotting. not enough to wear a pad but i go through a lot of liners. i also like to wear them for a few days after my period, i go through a box every month sometimes. (box of 28!!) not as much garbage as pads but still a lot in the long run and a lot of money
