Thoughts on the Cup

I've been using a cup for about 3 months now, and I absolutely love it! I've been trying to convert more of my girl friends, but most of them look at the size of it and think oh my God, that's going to hurt. (I've managed to sway one other friend who loves hers as well.)

So I have a question, I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this.
My whole life I've had really painful periods, to the point where I would vomit with them. I was put on several medications, including the BC pill and an anti-inflammatory for the cramps. But since I started using the cup, I've had none of these problems. I'm not on any medication any more and I haven't had a painful period at all since I started using my cup.

Is this common? Are my less painful periods because of the cup? Because it sits inside rather than my body having to cramp out all the fluid? Has anyone else experienced this??
