The Keeper is a re-usuable menstrual cup. I've been using it for almost 9 years now. I liked it so much that I decided to use my big ol' page to help distribute it, since it's not available in many stores. Most women don't even know that it exists, and Tampax likes it that way!
No menstrual product is perfect. I go into that in detail on my Menstrual Products Heirarchy Page, so please do check that out for more information. However, I'm a big Keeper fan!
Here's the good news about the Keeper:
And here's the not so good news:
If you want to use the safest menstrual product, I'd say to go for some washable pads. But if you want to use something internal and something that is more convenient than pads, go ahead and give the Keeper a try! If you hate it, I will send your money back. If you have any question that I didn't answer here please email me, and I'll help you the best that I can!
Order a Keeper
* Here's something new that I must mention, regarding returns. To give some background information, some women feel more comfortable wearing The Keeper if they trim the "tail" on it a bit. I am one of those women. However, I've just been told by The Keeper company that they have recently changed their return policy. They will no longer accept any returned Keepers if the buyer has cut more than half of the tail off. Basically, how the return process works is that you send your Keeper back to me, I return your money, I mail the used Keeper back to the company, and they send me a new one as a replacement. So, if you return one to me that has the tail cut more than half way off, I'm basically going to have to be responsible for buying the Keeper anyway. I'm not sure now how to best handle this. I really don't feel comfortable telling women NOT to trim the "tail" as much as they please, because it really may make the difference between being comfortable or not. I also don't want to deny anyone the chance to return a Keeper if need be, just because they trimmed the "tail" in a valiant effort to make it work for them. So, since I get so few returns as it is, I'll work this one a case by case basis. If you want to return a Keeper with more than half of the "tail" trimmed off, just email me and we'll work something out, even if it means I have to eat the cost. I can do this, since a return only happens once every couple of years to me. But I just wanted to make this public information!
I toned down this page a bit from it's former spastic self. However, if you have never heard of the Keeper before and you feel like you want to read more of what I have to say about it, please do look at my Vintage Keeper Page. I ramble and ramble and ramble on in my typical "It's 1997 and I just got my Keeper and just learned how to make webpages and now the two shall merge!" way. It's a little hard for me to look at now, because it really is out of control, but there is some information there, if you can stomach the 1997 version of me!
