I'm sure you've seen a trillion and one posts ike this, but I am so confused. I'm not sure how I found this community, but I've gotten really interested in this cup thing. I've been using tampons almost since day one [I've had my period since thirteen and I'm eighteen now]. Over the last year or so, I become nauseated and my cramps intensify. I have no idea where to begin, though. I thought about the Diva, but now I think a different one would be better.

I'm a virgin, and I don't think my hymen is broken, but then again, I have no idea how to tell. Will having my hymen intact make the use of cups more uncomfortable? What about comfort and leakage? Which brands are easiest to insert? I've never explored myself, if you will, so I don't know a whole lot. Also, I am uncomfortable discussing these things with my mom...is the packaging pretty discreet? She's also nosy, and likes to see what's in any packages I get. Just a couple more questions, I promise. How are these with sleeping in? I'd prefer not to rely solely on pads, if at all. I can get up to twelve hours a night of sleep. And. I just finished my period, so my next one won't come until the middle of next month. How long do these cups take to ship? I'm asking because I'm moving to uni on the 23rd of next month, so I want to know whether to use my uni address or my home address.

Sorry I asked so many questions, I am just really curious and confused. Any information as all that you could give would be absolutely wonderful.

ETA: I forgot to add that I'm from the US.
