The Goldilocks Cup!Listen, I know vaginas.And I know menstrual cups, too.I've spent several years studying women's reproductive care, especially surrounding topics related to menstruation. I came into knowledge of the menstrual cup about four years ago and took the plunge a year later.It wasn't pretty at first.I tried three different cups before Lena. One was ridiculously hard to insert, one was incredibly uncomfortable, one was THE MOST DIFFICULT OBJECT TO REMOVE FROM MY BODY. Really. The caps are warranted.It was not looking good for me and my womenbits.Then, I read about the Lena cup the first day of my period six months ago, ordered it for overnight delivery from Amazon (I was desperate for a cup that would work!), and popped it in the next day.A dream, friends. A dream in my va-gene.Now I know, it's a cup that holds menstrual blood. But this one is the keeper. Goldilock's menstrual cup.It's easy to insert once you get a proper fold and pose of insertion. It's comfortable once tucked inside correctly. It DOES NOT LEAK at all. It's much easier to remove than other cups (especially for someone with a high cervix, round belly and tiny hands). It's easy to clean and durable.As I said, Goldilocks cup.Try this for your first cup. Try this for your replacement cup. Try this for your "NOTHING IS WORKING FOR ME AND IM SICK OF BLEEDING EVERYWHERE" cup.Just try it. Go. Go. Go. 5LOVE IT! But buy BOTH sizes! Let me explain...I've been using this cup in both sizes for almost a year now. I really wanted to be able to give an informed, experienced review. So here it is. If medically correct terminology about the body bugs you then skip my review but know that I highly recommend it.******* First off, you really, really, really need to use it for at least 3 periods to see if you like it, love it or hate it. I cannot stress this enough. I'm in my late 30's and had used pads about 95% of the time. I hated the way a tampon felt and I was super skeptical of a product that's inserted for 12 hours. I can honestly say this feels completely different, in the fact I can't feel it at all unless I cough or sneeze really hard. And now that I'm super confident with it I just go to the restroom and push it back up a bit and forget about it. Some of the fears and concerns about menstrual cups are based on the fears of TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome) with tampons and the fact that most of us aren't used to inserting and then leaving an object that looks large and awkward into our vaginal canal. But rest assured that once it's in and open, it really is hard to feel it. It's also extremely rare to get TSS using a cup because it's medical grade silicone instead of a paper product that changes the PH in the canal. Empty the cup every 8-12 hours (I've even gone as long as 16), and it should be just fine. It's not hard to remove the cup as some fear it getting stuck. If you bear down like you are forcing a bowel movement, the cup comes right to the opening and it's easily removed. I first ordered the large cup based on Lena's recommendation because I've had a child. After 2 periods using the cup I began to get frustrated because it would be fine one day and then refuse to fully open the next. I broke down and bought the small cup to see if that worked better. Doctors and Lena will tell you that all vaginal canals are different, and it's so true! I started my 3rd period using the smaller cup and then moving to the larger cup on day 3 as the swelling in the canal decreases. Keep in mid the position of your cervix also changes during your period and I found that having the smaller cup helped when my cervix was lower. Bottom line is BOTH cups was the answer. I've been using both for over 8 periods and its been fantastic. If I'm having problems getting the larger one to open then I use the small and presto awesomeness!The benefits of the cup are TOTALLY worth a couple of periods learning your body and getting over the fear/anticipation based on some true and untrue bad experiences. I have NEVER had the cups leak, overfill, turn upside down, get stuck, or slip out, and that's where most of the worry seems to come from. The horrible smell of period pads is gone with cups and I personally feel so much better not putting all those pads in a landfill.******Bottom line is TRY THEM. If you end up liking or loving them, you'll save so much time and money using this cup instead of pads and tampons!****** 5Sorry, Lena Cup, you're just not the one for me.Personally, I thought this was way too hard for use. I felt it the whole time, it was very uncomfortable. It was my first time using the cup in general, so I really didn't know what to expect. I'd read other reviews before I bought this one, but I didn't experience the same thing as them. It was difficult to get in each time, and I felt it all day, when I moved, everything. It was very uncomfortable to me, like when you don't push a tampon in properly & you feel it the whole time. As it was my first time buying and using the cup, I bought two different brands, just in case I didn't like one, and to see if the experience was the same. I switch this one with the other (Blossom Cup), and had a much better experience. I feel that if it's your first time trying the cup, buy more than one, so you can experience the differences for yourself.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~EDITED:I spoke to the LenaCup customer service reps and they were SO helpful and nice that I really wanted to like their product. I did receive a refund as they've stated, and I still recommend this product to other women ALL the time. I took Vivi's advice and researched the FDA regulated cups (which Blossom Cup was NOT on), and I've bought another brand to see if it works for me. I really want to thank the LENACUP reps for all their assistance, they really opened my eyes to all the different options and helped me with what to look for. You guys are awesome!! 2Perfection! But there is a smellAlright ladies. I am late to the game of cups. I bought the Lena cup over 8 months ago. I just now decided to use it for my period. This is my first cup. I have been using tampons for 26 years. It's a hard habit to break when you've used something that long. Blood doesn't bother me. Especially my own. So, I'm not sure why I stalled so long to try it. I did research like crazy and listened to everyone's suggested brand and the Lena cup was the best reviewed one. I went with large. Because I have a heavy flow. But I might get the small for my light days. I only have my period for 3 days. The first and last days are light but the second is Niagara falls. Keep in mind I am a 36 yr old woman with no kids. So, take that for what it is in my review. I'm not going to sugar coat it. This cup is absolutely perfect in every single way and extremely easy to use. Except one thing and this may be a deal breaker for some of you. IT SMELLS horrible. I know blood especially menstruation blood isn't the best smelling thing on the planet. But it gives off a weird pungent smell when you take it out after being in for 12 hours. It doesn't matter if it's in there for 2 hrs or the whole 12. the smell is there. I haven't boiled it as other suggested yet but if you have a sensitive nose. This may bother you. If you can get past that and want so much easier periods than you ever have in your life with zero discomfort. I absolutely highly recommend. Just don't do what my stupid ass did and buy a box of tampons right before you decide to use the cup. Now I have a full brand new box of tampons that I will never use again. Is it something you need to get used to? Of course it is. You're shoving a cup the size of a shot glass up into your vagina to seal it like the temple of doom for the next week. But, just like the Egyptian pyramids. It is completely sealed. And like the pyramids, When you do take it out. It does smell like something died up there. (Sorry for those of you who do not have a sense of humor and won't find my review amusing. Life's too short not to laugh.) 5A very very good option for delicate flowers with heavy flowI think that in general menstrual cups are difficult to review meaningfully because personal anatomy quirks are such a factor, so I'm going to try to give some information that hopefully will make it easier to evaluate whether or not my experience will match up with yours. I'm also going to do my best to avoid TMI whenever possible, but let's be realistic: this is a review of a menstrual cup. There is some amount of TMI that is just part of the process.I am a long-time menstrual cup user (both the Diva Cup and the Lunette), but I have always preferred to sometimes use other feminine hygiene products under some circumstances - sometimes it's just easier to use tampons, and I prefer to not use anything internal at night if I can get away with it. I prefer menstrual cups specifically (1) when I wake up with cramps but haven't actually gotten my period yet, and (2) on my one or two really heavy flow days, when I would have to change a super absorbency tampon every hour or so but could get away with four to six hours on a menstrual cup. I have always had to trim the stem of menstrual cups (the little piece that sticks out below the cup) because I find them uncomfortable and I don't think they make removing them any easier. In terms of which brands I've used, I started with the Diva Cup, switched to the Lunette because I had some discomfort with the Diva Cup (the smaller one), but found the Diva Cup a lot easier to pop open than the Lunette, so I switched back. I am in my thirties, but because the smaller Diva Cup was already a little uncomfortable (I am a delicate flower), I didn't ever switch to the larger one. I haven't ever been pregnant.Given that context...I chose to try the larger Lena Cup specifically because of the shape. I'd had some problems with leaks on the smaller Diva Cup, but I was pretty sure it was because of the heaviness of my flow and not the diameter of the cup, so I didn't want to switch to the larger one (as I'd mentioned, the smaller one was already a little uncomfortable). The Diva Cup gets wider when you go to the larger cup. The Lena Cup gets taller. The Lena Cup is also less flared - from pictures, I could tell that it was a more consistent width from top to bottom, which just seemed like it'd work better for me, since I felt like it was really a width issue with the Diva Cup that was causing my discomfort.As it turns out, the Lena Cup is a LOT more comfortable than the Diva Cup for me, personally - as in, the larger Lena Cup is more comfortable than the smaller Diva Cup. Because it's less flared, the pressure (all three of the menstrual cups I have tried exert some outward pressure) is more distributed, and that makes it a lot less uncomfortable for me. It's not totally unnoticeable, but it's more like wearing a tampon than having something pushing at me in a really localized area and in a really intrusive way. (It is, however, more noticeable than a tampon, and it seems to sort of... take up valuable bladder space, so I do have to pee more frequently. See? TMI.)I'm not sure if it's the shape or what, but something about the design of the Lena Cup also makes it a lot easier than either the Diva Cup or the Lunette to change tidily, particularly in public restrooms. The blood collects at the bottom, not on the sides (which was a HUGE problem for me with the Diva Cup), and it seems like it's easier to remove it without spilling. [My feeling on the public restrooms is that if you can't change it in a public restroom it's a total nonstarter as a feminine hygiene product, so here's a tip about emptying menstrual cups in public restrooms in general: wash your hands and wet down a paper towel before you go into the stall, empty the cup into the toilet, wipe it out with toilet paper, and then use the wet paper towel to wipe the sides and inside of the cup before reinserting it. Paper towel gets folded up and goes in the trash receptacle (NOT the toilet), like a tampon or a pad. Everything else gets flushed. This requires a few tries before you get the hang of doing it without setting that wet but clean paper towel down on the knee of your jeans and no, it's not ideal, obviously, or a long-term solution, but it'll get the job done in a pinch.]The real place where the Lena Cup excels for me, though, is that I have had absolutely no problems with leaks. None. Not even overnight on my really heavy flow days on a weekend when I'm sleeping in. None. It's a real godsend, not to have to wear a pantiliner or backup pad or get up in the night to empty it, and to know that I can actually get some work done during the day without setting an alarm to interrupt me every couple of hours just to make sure everything is still copacetic. I haven't gone longer than ten hours without changing it, even when I do sleep with it in, or longer than about six hours during the day, but emptying it three or four times a day without incident is a vast, *vast* improvement over either the Diva Cup (which was fine as long as I was wearing a pantiliner to deal with leaks but still kind of nerve-wracking) or tampons (which I had to change literally every hour, and woe unto me if I forgot).A few other notes. The material on the Lena Cup is very firm and it pops open easily after being folded for insertion: I can't do a tri-fold with it (which I had to do with the Lunette and didn't like), but a bifold works just fine (it was sort of hit or miss on the Diva Cup). The air holes are really easy to keep clean (this was really, *really* not true on the Diva Cup). The downside (and isn't there always one) is that I do think it's a little bit harder to remove than the Diva Cup. I did trim the stem, as I mentioned before, and I always remove menstrual cups by pinching the base, but it seemed like the Lena Cup was just a lot more firmly seated, the first couple times I tried. This is possibly related to why it doesn't leak, so I'll take it. I've used it a fair few times now and I've got the hang of it at this point, so we're good. I still do not use it exclusively in preference to tampons or pads. 5come on over, come on in (and sit in my vagina and catch my menstrual blood)A little background: I'm a 26 year old woman who has never given birth. I am an advocate for women's health, and I worked in gynecology for several years. Outside of where I live (rural Texas!), I'm probably the second type of woman that pops into your head when you think of someone who uses a menstrual cup -- the first being the crunchy granola hippie who turns her placenta into pills. (I'm not judging, do you.) (Okay I'm judging a little, but that's mostly because of my own prejudices.)I have long loved the idea of reducing waste w/r/t menstrual products. For the last 6 years, I've used OB tampons because the idea of throwing applicators in the trash every month is appalling to me. I'm not a hippie or a tree-huger by any means, but I don't want to create more waste than I need. I also liked how little space the OB tampons took in my purse. Because I was already familiar with my lady parts, trying a cup seemed like the natural progression.Many of my friends use, love, and have recommended menstrual cups. So I said LET'S GET ON BOARD. The first time I tried was in 2013, and it was a disaster. I have a cervix that changes heights throughout my cycle and I have tried the Diva Cup, the Lunette Cup, and the Lily Cup at various points over the last four years with no success. I couldn't get a seal that worked or the cup would not work with my cervix. For one reason or another, I am not even sure what (shape? positioning of holes? my vagina not being a welcoming environment?), they just didn't work for me.I'm not exactly sure what caused me to bite the bullet this time, but I'm so glad that I did. After doing loads of research on menstrual cups (checking out Bryony (aka Bree aka Precious Stars Pads), the Put A Cup In It ladies, and the livejournal community on menstrual cups), I decided that a cup that was more bell/tulip shaped that was rather firm would be my best bet.I received my cup on Saturday morning, realized I'd started my period early in the afternoon, and after a few experimental folds, decided the punch-down fold would work best for me. The first day of my period was great! I left it in for about 11 1/2 hours with no leaks, I peed multiple times, had a BM, could not feel the cup at all. Which I thought was a good thing....until it was time for removal. I had some issues getting the seal to break, and my cervix is much higher than it generally is. I couldn't reach the stem of the cup with my fingers at all. I later figured out that most of the problem was the stem getting caught right above my pubic bone.The following is a (slightly censored) series of text messages I sent to one of my best friends (herself a diva cup user):"Okay so I just spent the last 45 minutes trying to remove my cup""I literally couldn't get it out. I couldn't break the seal at all""I ended up pushing like I was pooping but before I got the cup out I got a massive s*** and all of the residual (SUPER POTENT) urine out""(It was at the top of my vagina which is VERY LONG rn bc my cervix is VERY HIGH today)""at that point it got down to a place where i could tug on the stem""and then I couldn't get it at all""I got the stem outside of my body, relaxed, AND MY EFFING VAGINA ATE IT AGAIN""So then I cried a little, took some giant breaths, and pushed down a gain. Got to where I could pull on the stem and it was so slippery I couldn't get a grip on it""I beared (bore?) down while I was pulling on the stem and then the base and it popped out NO effing problem""aaaand the single movement poured into the toilet before I could see how much blood was in it."Her only response?"Omfg friend, I'm so sorry."So. I took the overnight off my cup and used a tampon.And look, I have been using tampons for the last 15 years, exclusively for the last 13 or so. I have never felt a tampon the way that I did after I used my cup for just a single day. I could feel it. The same type of tampon I'd been using and inserting since I was in college. The menstrual product I had previously touted as perfect and unobtrusive! I COULD FEEL IT. It was one of the weirdest sensations I've experienced in a long time.In the morning, I took out the tampon, and it was mostly dry. It HURT to remove. You know the feeling? I don't need to describe it to you.At that point, I decided that my poor vagina was going to be miserable no matter what I did, so it might as well not be as dry as my West Texas plains. I put some water-based lube on the cup, on account of my vagina being so dry, and inserted it....and then it popped open before it was all the way inserted, because it was TOO LUBEY. Think that episode of New Girl when Schmidt uses too much lube and falls off the top bunk of a bunk bed. That is basically what happened, only the cup was schmidt and the bunk bed was the inside of my vagina? This is not a perfect metaphor. Anyway, it didn't hurt but it was uncomfortable as I was removing it. I adjusted the lubrication factor on the cup to a manageable amount, and inserted.Now, I will say this about my experience that I'm guessing most of you won't have: The one thing that's been tricky for me from transitioning from the digital tampons to the cup is the angle of insertion. With the digital tampons (digital as in "use your fingers" not "data expressed by 0s and 1s and transmitted"), you flare out the base and insert in the general upwards but slightly backwards direction. With the cup, you insert generally backwards and slightly upwards. Any issues I have had with inserting the cup have been with getting that angle right. I've found myself standing with one foot on the tub or the toilet, like Captain Morgan, starting to insert up and thinking, "NOPE THIS IS NOT RIGHT, abort abort BEFORE IT POPS OPEN TOO SOO-crap." If you're not used to inserting things into your vagina at a specific angle, this will not apply to you.My flow picked up on Sunday to the point where I filled up roughly half of the small cup (so probably between 8-15mL) each time I've emptied it between Sunday and Tuesday. I would say I have a normal - normal-heavy flow, though my periods last around 8-10 days, though they do get considerably lighter after day 5 and sometimes skip a day or two in the middle. (I have talked to my gyne about this, she says my endometrium is just finicky. She also said I have a cute uterus.)I had an Incident on Tuesday afternoon after work, where, instead of pulling the cup out and slightly up, I got a bit...overzealous in my movement and ended up spilling on myself and the floor. Thankfully, I was about to get into the shower and was not wearing clothes, though I did have to lysol the floor and pray no crime scene investigator comes to the house and luminols the floor any time soon. I chalk this up to my own clumsiness and inexperience, as well as my over-zealousness, rather than a shortfall of the cup.There was just a bit of clear fluid in the cup when I emptied it on Wednesday morning. Figuring I'd hit one of my mid-period lulls, I put the cup in its adorable bag and took it with me to work. I figured that if I needed it, I could insert it at work. Well, after my morning meeting, I Felt It Coming Back. So I went to one of the bathroom stalls, took a few deep breaths, squatted a smidge, and put the cup in. First try: no popping it open and hitting me at the entrance of my vagina, no lube, in a public place! I would generally have to change a super tampon at least once over my workday or a regular tampon 2-3 times. NOTHING. It was just SET IT AND FORGET IT, like those Ron-co cookers that used to have infomercials running constantly in the early 2000s.I have been able to remove and insert it on the first or second try after the first day or so. I will say that there is a steep learning curve to using a cup, but I would say that's not different than switching from pads to tampons for the first time -- an experience I haven't had since middle school. There is a possibility that I could have made another cup work if I tried harder, but I had leaks galore with those cups. This one? NADA. Even on the first day.The customer service at Lena is FANTASTIC. After my Saturday Night Vagina Fight, I used the contact form on the Lena website to ask if maybe I needed the larger size because of my migration issue and inability to remove the cup. I sent it around 10:30p my time and received an in-depth reply from Amanda at 2:04a. ON A SATURDAY GOING INTO SUNDAY. That's literally unheard of. Like, I worked at a bar and stopped giving a care about our drunk patrons after about 1:30a. She was kind, very reassuring, and gave me a lot of suggestions. I took them into account and haven't had an issue with removal since.I would recommend this product to anyone across the board, with the following exceptions:-people who do not have vaginas-people who no longer menstruate due to hormonal birth control, menopause, hysterectomy, or endometrial ablation-people who are not comfortable getting up close and personal with their genitals, including measuring their cervix-people who are not comfortable with the viscous and weirdly textured menstrual blood-people who embarrass easilyMenstrual cups in general and the Lena Cup specifically are good for:-individuals who care about their carbon footprint and creating less waste-people who travel a lot and don't want to worry about carrying around menstrual products-people who are forgetful and have to buy a new box of tampons every month because they forget theirs at work-individuals who work long shifts with not a lot of time for restroom breaks (nurses, servers, teachers, etc.) I can't count the number of times I left a tampon in for what I know is too long because I didn't want to lose a table during a shift at the bar.-people who want to be cool-- menstrual cup sales have gone up almost 200% since 2015!If you've read this far into the review, you're clearly interested in this product, and I cannot recommend it enough. I hope you enjoyed it, learned from my mistakes, and laughed with me at myself. 5Would recommend if you are looking for something smaller than Diva cupDetermining what size and feel works is subjective, I would recommend doing research on different sizes/brands of menstrual cups and looking at a lot of reviews if you don't want to end up buying a bunch that you will end up not using. If you've tried the Diva cup (the smaller of the two sizes) and it didn't work out for you because it was too big, the Lena cup (small) is a good next option!I originally tried the Diva cup (the white one in the pictures) but I find that the Lena cup (purple in the pictures) is more comfortable since it is smaller overall. The silicone for the Lena is also not as stiff as the Diva cup, so actually feels like its not there! I have some pretty bad cramps, and the Diva cup would move around and exerted some pressure, making it difficult to pee (I would have to take out the Diva cup to be able to completely empty my bladder). The Lena cup's body is smaller, and I guess that's what I needed! The diameter of the rim is the same as the Diva cup and the Diva cup has measurements on it (if you want to measure how much your menstruate, I guess?). The little stick thing that helps you take it out is longer for the Lena than the Diva cup, but can be easily adjusted.Other than that, its got all the same perks: environmentally friendly, FDA approved, easy to clean, comes with a little baggy for storage. 5Wanted to, but didn t.I bought the large first. Then when it felt like it was too big I bought the small.If you want to sit around all day it s great but start moving again and you can feel these things like an ill fitting tampon. I ve trimmed the cup, I ve spent ample time trying to insert it a million different ways, and even a small feels too big.It collects like it should, but there s no way to make this thing comfortable without causing pain on the removal (pretty sure it suctioned to something up there.)A MONTH LATER...Tried it again, because I really wanted to make it work. The previous review stands, but I want to add that I am a 30 year old mother of one, and it acts like I m too tight up there because it NEVER opens up completely and that s possibly why it always feels like a tampon that s falling out. 1Wow. This Is Awesome!I'm 38 with four children, and this thing has been a miracle for me. This is one of those products that left me wondering why I didn't know about it sooner. It has exceeded my expectations. In the pictures I posted I compared the two sizes. I prefer the big one, and my 19 year old daughter who just had a baby prefers the smaller one. My sixteen year old daughter can't use either, but then again, even tampons are uncomfortable for her.1. It's much cleaner than a tampon. I was worried about it making a mess, but the "stuff" collects in the cup instead of plugging everything up. When you go to change it, the "stuff" is inside the cup. Nothing oozes out after you take out the cup. I didn't understand the reviews where people say they change these even in public restrooms. Now I understand. It's much cleaner.2. I assumed smell was a normal part of that time of the month. Little did I know it's tampons and pads that smell.3. I bleed very heavy on day one, and I had to change it every three hours (vs every hour with a tampon). The other two days I bleed normally, so I only had to change it in the morning and at night. The first day I had one leak until I got the hang of it. After that no leaking at all. I leak constantly with tampons.4. This particular cup is very well made. They thought of everything. The material is the perfect thickness to easily fold and pop open. The shape fits perfectly, and the grips on the end do make taking it out easier. 5Just what I neededTLDR at bottom of reviewJust a little instructional that might help a first time cup user Always wash your hands before touching your vagina, especially near your cervix. Relax your uterine muscles and locate your cervix so you know just how deep to insert the cup. Using 1 finger, fully insert it until you reach "the end" of your vagina, it will feel like a soft round sponge. My cervix is very high and I have a tilted uterus, I have no problems using this cup. There are several ways to fold the cup, play around with options until you find a comfortable fold. Insert the cup similar to how you would a tampon, aiming towards your tailbone rather than straight up. When you get the cup at least 3/4 in, gently allow the cup to unfold then slowly push the rest of the way in. All the way. Some pics will make it appear as if the cup is sitting right inside the vagina but if you actually have a vagina you'll know that isn't gonna stay put. You'll know it's in place because it will feel as if nothing is even there. If there's any discomfort you should remove it and try again. If it hurts to go to the bathroom, number 1 or 2, chances are you don't have the cup inserted properly. You should be able to comfortably pee and poo without even noticing your cup is in you. If your cup is leaking, chances are it's not inserted correctly or you need a larger size. Every vagina is different so don't base your needs off the manufactures suggestions. I am 30 years old and have given vaginal birth 4 times, I use a small cup. To remove the cup, you're supposed to pinch the base to release suction. But I find that I have to pinch much higher to release suction, almost to the lip. To clean my cup during use I simply rinse with warm water and wipe away the "uterine slime" with my fingers, using mild hand soap seemed to irritate my vagina. After my period was over I boiled it as explained in the instruction book, then stored it in the storage bag it came with. Once I became comfortable with inserting and removing, I cut stem all the way off, this is my preference. My flow ranges from light to heavy, or so I thought. I usually dump it as often as I would change a tampon, about every 6 hours (you can safely wear this cup for 12 hours). The amount of blood I see in the cup doesn't compare to my overly saturated tampons at all. My tampons would get so "full' the string would be covered in blood after 6 hours. Makes me think tampon absorbency is highly exaggerated. I would occasionally wear pads or pantie liners in combo with tampons during my heaviest days, so that when the string became saturated there was something more to protect my underwear. I've had zero leakage with my cup. To be disgustingly honest, I can't stand the smell of my period. But the entire time I have used this cup, I have had zero nasty period smell. My entire attitude about having periods has changed, I'm actually bummed my period is over and I have to wait another 3 weeks to use my cup. I will never buy tampons or pads again.So *TLDR* make the change, stop spending money month after month on pads, tampons, pantie liners. This thing will pay for itself and lasts for years. 5
