Bloodheart

(no subject)

A question I get asked a lot when it comes to menstrual cups is whether or not they are messy to remove. I can’t say I have had any problems, maybe a little blood and discharge on the outside if I have had my Mooncup in for a while but other than that it is fine. I empty mine twice a day, one in the morning where I can just lean over and rinse it off in the basin and at night while I am in the shower.
The only times it was ever a pain, or messy to change was when I accidentally dropped the thing down the toilet and had to fish it out, or when I cut the stem off and it leaned over to one side – because for some reason I am one of those women who cannot cut the stem off.
Would any of you say that emptying your cup was messy?
