The sad thing is, though, I didn't get it until halfway through this cycle. I had it sent to my boyfriend's because I'm going to be here for spring break (and I wasn't sure how long it would take to ship abroad), so I only get to use it for a couple of days.
I put it in this morning, and aside from leaking the first time I put it in, it seems to be ok. It hurts a bit going in and coming out, but it's nothing unbearable, and it's definitely not as bad as the nasty, dry feeling from taking out tampons. I do have slight cramping now (somehow I hadn't on this period yet), but I think it's probably from the slight suction caused by not breaking the seal correctly the first time I took it out.
So considering this is my first go with it, I'm pretty happy with it.
And is it bad that I almost want my period to last longer so I can keep using my DC? I almost feel guilty since I can't see my boyfriend often, but I'm wanting my period to stay :x
