Value of the natural sponge for women

MagazineJanuary 1996 (Vol. 6 Issue 10)Value of the natural sponge for women

For the past 25 years I have used a natural sponge in place of tampons and feel that more women should learn the value of this

Dear WDDTY:

For the past 25 years I have used a natural sponge in place of tampons and feel that more women should learn the value of this. The natural sponges can be purchased from Boots and need to be cut into smaller pieces about 1 by 2 inches. Then you wet it, squeeze it and insert it. It should be removed, rinsed out and reinserted several times a day. I have never leaked (and flow quite heavily) and never had problems of dryness. At 51 I still have excellent vaginal walls. It is also possible to have sexual intercourse with the sponge in place.

For me it was a miracle, and I wish more women would try it. The sponge needs to be thoroughly rinsed in water and a little distilled vinegar between periods (dried out, of course) and can be used for three to four months before it wears out. L S, Leeds.......
