I’ve been interested in trying a cup for decades, yes decades...but I wasn’t sure, I didn’t want to spend the money if it might not be for me, if it might be messy, uncomfortable, fiddly, leaky... so I kept using tampons, which were sometimes messy, uncomfortable, fiddly, leaky, and full of toxins and bad for the environment... Anyway thanks to OrganiCups 2 for 1 offer and promise of money back if it doesn’t work (I’m no risk taker with my pennies) I finally ordered myself a cup, or two. I read lots of blog posts and prepared for the worst, I read all the instructions, I practised on a dry run, then I waited to try my cup. After that it was pretty non eventful. It just worked. It was easy, both to get in and out, it wasn’t messy, nothing spilt out like in some of the horror stories I’d read! It hasn’t leaked, it hasn’t got stuck. I guess the things that took the most getting used to was feeling the stem of it when you’re moving around but I’ve still not trimmed this which I know your can do for comfort. And seeing the blood...yes I know it’s not a lot, but it looks it compared to a tampon which absorbs it all, but it’s good to be more in tune with your body and a small price to pay for a healthier body and less impact to the environment.
