Featuring nationally recognized keynote speaker and time management expert Mary LoVerde, who will be teaching women a new work-life balance approach in her humorous and fast-paced presentation, I Used to Have a Handle on Life, But it Broke.
For fifteen years, as a busy mother with a demanding career, Mary LoVerde tried the ‘superperson’ route and failed. Struggling to keep up, she turned to time management, delegating and simplifying. Yet, she continued to feel overwhelmed. One day, while furiously working away at her computer and shouting at the kids, she realized a startling fact. In her zeal to get everything done, she had become disconnected — from her family, from her work and from the person she was and wanted to be. LoVerde adopted a new life motto: When you can’t keep up, CONNECT.

For years, women have relied on pads or tampons during their period. But, recently menstrual cups have become more popular and more widely available.
A menstrual cup is a flexible cup that is designed for use inside the vagina during your period to collect the menstrual blood. Menstrual cups are usually made of medical grade silicone, but some can be made from latex.
You can use a cup throughout your entire cycle, some users only need to empty it once every 12 hours, and some empty it more often on their heavier days.
A menstrual cup is a more expensive up-front purchase than a box of tampons or pads, however it can last for up to ten years, providing you with a significant cost-savings, and less waste. You also get more time between changes.
It’s also surprisingly easy to use. If you currently use tampons, or have used a diaphragm, you should have little trouble learning to use a cup. It folds up to a size similar to a tampon for insertion. When properly inserted, the wearer shouldn’t feel it at all, much like using a tampon.
There are some potential drawbacks to using a cup. Some women aren’t comfortable inserting them or have fit problems. That’s OK! A menstrual cup isn’t for everyone, but it’s an alternative for women looking for something different.
If you have any questions about a menstrual cup, ask during your next routine gynecological exam. Your provider can help you determine if you should give a menstrual cup a try and can help alleviate any concerns you may have.
