So, I'm all excited for my cup to arrive so I can wave goodbye to disposable products, right? And, since my whole menstruating life, with the exception of the few years I was on the pill, my periods have been like clockwork. Every 28 days, on the dot, no ifs, ands or buts. When I ordered my cup, I still had two weeks before my period was scheduled to start. So, I was a little perturbed when I started getting pre-period cramping this weekend. "That's odd," I thought. "They're a week early!" And now today, so is my period, with no cup do to arrive for a few more days. Boo! At least I'll have plenty of time to practice with it before my next period starts!
