I'm really working on emptying neatly, because that's the only way I can be sure how full the cup is, and if I'm timing my emptying properly. Like, is it a leak from overflow, or a leak from placement, you know? I also turned it inside out, MUCH BETTER! I could not keep that stem from poking me, it was aweful, I was walking with a limp! lol. Inside out requires I bear down more for removal, but its such an easy price to pay to get my mobility back!
So all in all, it has been quite the experience, it's teaching me so much about my body, and it's really made me lose that aweful fear of "oh, crap, did I grab some tampons this morning before I left?" Just that piece of mind makes it all worth it!
