anyway, i may be alone in this (though i doubt it), but i'm fascinated by what's in my cup. it's almost like a mini-science experiment. i was actually sad to have my period end.
since my period ended last week, i've been raving about the cup to anyone who will listen. whenever i do so, i pass along a link to this community as a resource for all questions. is this okay? an email was circulating amongst a group of women i know about how important it is to use organic tampons, so i was going to email them about cups, and include a link to this comm.
secondly, i was talking to a friend about my cup, and the conversation went something like:
her: what's a cup?
me: (explains everything)
me: plus, you save hundreds of dollars, since this costs ~$40 and it lasts from 1-10 years they say
me: AND, i have had zero cramps with the cup. not sure if that happens with everyone, but this has been a great period.
her: no way! i have terrible, unbearable cramps, this sounds wonderful!!
me: it's true. i'm loving it. i'm telling every woman i know. it's so easy, and i've had no drips, and (on and on and on). and it's easy to empty!
her: wait... empty?
me: (explains cleaning and emptying)
her: oh. i don't like looking at blood.
so, is it hopeless for her? i wasn't being pushy and she was genuinely interested in what sounded like a product that could relieve a lot of her period problems. but then it's just like, welp, i can't look at blood so, oh well.
i guess that's it. except that someone should go as a menstrual cup for halloween.
