Bootless Bear

Ya'll saved my can!

I wrote a post earlier this month about putting together a "starter kit" for a friend's daughter who sounds like a great candidate for cups. Well, in a strange twist of fate, I had it on me at work today to leave in her mom's locker, when I just happened to see brown during my bathroom break.

Yep, Stealth Period almost caught me with my pants *up* as it were. But, as luck would have it, the Fleurcup was in my pocket, still sealed in its little plastic bag. There was just one problem, though; I have almost *no* room to work down there, and the stem on this one hadn't been trimmed. But I remembered a post from someone here about flipping them inside out and then, in she went using the C fold, opened exactly the same way the Diva usually does for me, all on the first try. I've been completely pain free (aside from my usual PCOS/Endo Period Hell) ever since. :D

SO MUCH BETTER than the Diva Cup! (Thank gods I had it in my pocket!)
