Hi! This comm is fantastic, it's helped so much in the course of investigating this whole menstrual cup thing.

I haven't yet begun using a menstrual cup, and I'm still looking between the various brands; if I'm ordering online I want to know for sure what I'm getting, since the supermarket brand near our house doesn't appeal to me too much. (And the price is kind of prohibitive right now, if only because I can't just throw one in the shopping cart without having to explain their pros and cons to my parents-- I'm sixteen.) This is probably a stupid question, and it may have been answered elsewhere, but does it hurt to sleep with a menstrual cup in? Does the answer to that depend on the brand at all? (If it makes any difference, I'm sixteen, have not given birth, not sexually active, and hymen-free.)
