I was beyond excited when I first received my Organicup. I had actually ordered 2 because I was so sure that I was gonna use this cup forever.
But my excitement didn't last long. After the first 6 months and 6 periods, I still couldn't make it work the way it was supposed to. I thought that it was because I couldn't relax enough, or that I've used the wrong body position to insert the cup. No matter what I did it never sat right. Sometimes it wouldn't even go in, no matter how hard I tried to push. I tried inserting it laying down, squatting, standing, in the shower and so on. I had tried everything! Or so I thought.
I decided to give it one last go, because I was determined to make my period less wasteful by not using tampons and/or pads.
I was on the toilet trying to push it in one last time, when it occurred to me that I had never tried to insert it with my left hand. I had always tried and failed with the right.
I thought "what the hell", folded it with my left hand and whoops - it sat perfectly. I felt the suction and all. I was so astonished that it had worked. And it has worked like a charm ever since!
So before you give up on your Organicup, please try to switch hands - maybe it makes a difference for you too. It certainly did for me.
Thank you for an amazing product that I will be using every time I get my period!
