New to cups


I'm new to menstrual cups and will be trying my first cup this evening. There were some pretty good sales and coupons over the break so after doing a ton of online reading and YouTube watching I purchased three sets, a super Jennie small and large, an eva cup small and large, and a ruby cup small and large. My plan is to start with the small cups before opening any large and if the smalls work well I will donate the unopened large cups to my local women's shelter. I purchased the super Jennie and Eva cups because I liked that they were made in America and the reviews were good, and I purchased the ruby cups because I really like their mission to donate to a girl in Kenya.

Fortunately my super Jennie and Eva cups came today because so did my period! Today was the first day back to school after Christmas break. I woke up at 5:45 and my period started at 6. Ah, the luck of the Irish. I can't wait to try them and plan on trying the small super Jennie first. I'm going to boil them when I make my dinner (in a separate pan lol) and try it out tonight.

Any tips for a new user? It probably seems excessive to have purchased three sets but the prices were good, I had coupons, and I really wanted to donate some after researching a lot about women's health issues.
