I wasn't too sure about using a cup but wanted to try it out because tampons gave such an annoying and uncomfortable dryness the longer your period lasted. Now I'm hooked on the organicup. I have an inconsistent period, with a cup it is easy to just use it during the day when you want to make sure you won't ruin your pants. Without waisting any pads or tampons, what usually happened. I'm a truly happy with using a cup instead of other period products. It is easy to clean and easy to use.
It has been an inconvenience on some occasions while I was traveling and didn't have a sink in the toilet but that only happens one period a year. Just pop it in at home in the morning and take it out 10/12 hours later to rinse it off and use it again 'till the end of your period.
