of course most things take time to get used to, but the posts i've read seem that people have problem after problem. i'd really love something low maintenance. are cups ever inconvenient? it sounds like the way to remove them would be very messy - by folding them or whatever, wouldn't that squeeze blood out and all over your hand?
also, a problem that i am concerned with. I am a student at a college, and we have a community bathroom. I don't know how convenient it would be for me to spend so much time in the bathroom when i first start using one! and i don't wnat to come out of the stall looking like i knifed someone in there. also, when you have to take it out and rinse it, that would mean i'd have to go in the stall, take it out, dump it, pee and all that, then redress, go to the sink, rinse it out without grossing out any other girls, then going back into the stall and reinserting it?
or am i just overreacting? these are the first things that run through my mind.
please help if you can, otherwise i'll continue my research. thank you all so much!
