Anyways, I guess the biggest thing deterring me from trying a reusable cup has been fear of having this problem again. I'm not too worried about since I think it was because of the absorbency of tampons, but I wanted to see if anyone else has this problem before investing. Of course I'm trying to figure out what road to take when it comes to brand, but those questions seem to be getting answered quite adequately elsewhere.
By the way, I'm 20, not a virgin, and I live in the US (which as I'm seeing limits my options somewhat).
Thanks all :)
