Cups gaining popularity? Hurray!

Hey everyone!

THis post doesn't really have much of a point, except to say that I am so very excited about the fact that menstrual cup use seems to be growing in popularity!

When I first got my diva cup over a year ago, i came to this page pretty much every day to pick up little tips and tricks. I've had almost no problems with my cup, so I haven't been back in a while. Well, right now, I should be studying for a midterm, so I'm obviously surfing the internet, and I see that there are 2 new brands of menstrual cups on the market! I think this is awesome, as it seems to me that manufacturers must be thinking that they can break into an expanding market.

Since I've started using a cup, I've convinced 4 friends to buy one, just because I'm always talking about how amazing it is. (especially the first few months. I was soooo happy not to be using tampons/pads/panty liners anymore) And it seems to me like I come across people who know what menstrual cups are a lot more often than I used to. This is a big deal to me, because a year and a half ago, I had never even heard of menstrual cups!

Anyway, this is basically just a lot of random gushing, but honestly, it pleases me to no end to see more women considering more eco-friendly (and body friendly!) menstrual products!!
