i converted, to my knowledge, five ladies on another site to the cup! i had originally posted a thread on that site inquiring what do they use for menstrual protection and though the males on the site kept stumbling in and 'blacking out', i had really different responses from many women. i tried my best to pass on as much knowledge i could about the cup. so, i'm very happy to have converted five to the cup.
however, i will mention one thing. a classmate, turned minor internet celebrity, had originally been appalled/freaked out/disgusted when i first mention the cup to her as an alternative to the pad/tampon. but on my thread, she recently posted saying that she has "always been interested in using the cup"... yep, sure girl... i hope she does try it though. it just peeved me a bit to read her post because it is untrue and i feel like she said that because the thread is/was so popular and the recent posters were all [converted ]cup users.
question though. i can't find my divacup! should i buy another one or just use my leftover tampons until i can find it? i also just started the nuvaring, are there any complications with the ring and the cup?
