Anticipation

This is my first time posting, although I have been reading this community for a while now.

I have recently ordered both a Mooncup and some Lunapads, thanks to the information I have received both here and in a number of other LJ communities. I must say that I am both nervous and very excited about this. I am nervous that I will not be able to maneuver the Mooncup correctly, but I am comfortable with my body and should have no major problems. Just the basic getting-used-to-it thing. I am mainly excited about doing something so wonderful for both my body and the environment. Goodbye hideous, wasteful disposable pads and pantyliners! I will soon have no more use for you! I just hope that I will receive my Mooncup before my next period. I should. The Lunapads, however, may be a bit later, so I may have to rely on disposable pantyliners for a while longer, as I will not feel comfortable going with no back-up protection while I am learning how to use my Mooncup so it doesn't leak.

Thank you so much to this community for introducing me to the wonders of menstrual cups :)
