I always look for new ways to be more eco-friendly and this is definitely better for the environment and you save so much money it’s insane.
It's really convenient in terms of cleanliness (going to the bathroom, showering, sleeping, working out, going to the beach <3). It’s like you are not on your period at all, I often forget it because I don’t feel the cup nor the flow and don’t have to check and change the pad all the time.
We were on vacation on Bali when I got my last period and it was only my second time using the cup. I brought with me only a couple of pads just in case and didn’t use any of them! I was out and about swimming, hiking, cycling and having a blast! If you like jogging like me I don’t even have to tell you what a jog on a hot summer morning on a beach on Bali would look like with a pad.
Also, I have to mention the packaging. One box, instructions on the inside that you can always go back to if you need to, no extra paper and all that stuff. Every concern is addressed, it is so simple but really well thought out so, given that I work in marketing and product development, I was extremely impressed.
It’s only my third time using the cup and I’m still getting used to it - finding the right position, folding method that works best for me, making sure if it’s done right so I don’t experience leakage, etc. but I would not change it for the world! At the beginning, I was a little afraid that this wasn’t a right product for me because I attempted tampons several times and they just didn’t work for me and were extremely uncomfortable but this is a dream come true. I’m still in the learning phase and I’ve had several moments of frustration. I have to remind myself every time to be patient and relaxed and I highly (highly!) recommend you do the same because when you get it right those few annoying days of month get changed forever!
