A month or so ago, I decided to take the plunge and order a menstrual cup. I’ve never used one but I kept hearing how it would be a literal game changer.
A few days ago, I started my period and tried my new cup. It was uncomfortable to insert, and it wouldn’t open over it was in. I ordered a smaller size and today it arrived.
It was immediately easier to insert, and I could actually place it properly to where I couldn’t feel it. It was also able to fully open once inside of me.
And! The best part! No leaks, no ruining clothing or sheets or furniture. Just smooth sailing all day. Emptying it was a bit of a challenge as once the cup is placed right, I can’t reach it, so I need to bear down and “birth” it so I can reach the stem. But it pulls out easily enough, and was simple to dunno into the toilet. It did look pretty gruesome though! Lol
Then a quick wash under the tap and back in.
I’m already convinced this is the best thing I should have tried years ago.
