Answer the Polls?


So, I was in school today and instead of paying attention, I was thinking about my LJ communities. And I came up with some ideas for a poll that I thought might be interesting. I thought it would be neat to have one poll asking, "what was the number one reason you decided to try menstrual cups?" and then another poll asking, "now, what is the number one thing you like best about your cup?" and then a third one asking, "are these things the same or have they changed?" I'm curious because I think it could help people who are suggesting cups to friends/coworkers/family if they knew what had attracted you to a cup in the first place.
 
I wish I could have listed every reason, but there are just too many. I tried to pick the most common ones/the ones that came to mind first. This applies mostly to reuseable cups, not Insteads.

What was the number one reason you decided to try menstrual cups?
