I am only on my second cycle and already my cup has changed my life! I have never before been so relaxed about getting my period. Because it's non-absorbent, I can put my cup in whenever I think I might get my period, and I can go about my day. No more "uh-oh" feeling of being unprotected when my period starts, and no more stuffing my purse with pads and tampons just in case. My outlook on my period has totally changed from a negative to a positive. I'm so glad I made the switch to menstrual cups!
