Initially, I thought how can this silicon cup hold me and my visitor down?
How? Well, hold your wigs ladies!
This cup is a game changer. I was able to keep this in for a full 12 hours! I didn’t have to change it until I took my shower at night. It was full too. Now, I did still use a panty liner because I just didn’t want to go truly bare until I knew for sure. I even tested it out at night and there was no leakage.
Now, though it hit a great mark on taking care of my cycle, one of the cons to this is the difficulty I found when trying to insert the cup. You simply have to fold the cup like a taco and insert it.
If you don’t like the sight of blood or getting up close and personal with your vagina, then the cup may not be an option for you. Keeping that in mind, finding the perfect insertion will take trial and error. I’ve found that a good low squat does the trick, but I’m still trying to perfect it. I also find that I love changing my cup in the shower as it can get messy during removal and insertion. Before and after insertion you should be cleaning yourself and your hands. Knowing your cycle will help in establishing if you will overflow the cup. Don’t fret if it happens, just prepare for next time. Lastly, make sure you are sanitizing your cup after every use by boiling it in water.
Though I had some hiccups with the cup, I must say the benefits out weight my small issues with it. Now, there are other menstrual cups out there and I suggest you find the one that works best for you and your cycle needs.
