Why didn't I find this sooner!?!

I've been lurking in this community ever since I first heard about cups.  ( this also my first LJ posting woohoo) Having always had period problems - you know irregular periods, extreme cramping, heavy flow the whole nine yards-  I'd figured I would just have to suffer through things like leaks, pad rash, pads not "Fitting" well since I am plus sized, tampons that I didn't trust, plus the expense of disposables and their effect on the enviroment. Things got even worse when my living situation changed and I had to deal with a grandparent going through my bathroom garbage can.. I'd never been yelled at for bagging up my feminine products and such before and I kind of felt like my privacy had been violated.. plus eewwwww....

Anyway.. I lurked here for a few months did some research and ordered a large Lunette Selene..
CUPS WHERE HAD YOU BEEN FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS! WHY DIDN'T I KNOW ABOUT YOU SOONER!

My cup has been one of the best investments in my life so far. No leaks, no smell, no waste, and no embarrassing moments when it comes to my garbage can! I love how it can go into it's pretty blue bag and live in my purse close to my cycle starting that way it is there when I need it! Also, it is so nice to be able to go to a friend's house or to the BF's house and not put disposables in the garbage or have to "Baggie" them up. As it is I may have converted a friend of mine to the ways of the cup simply based on the fact that it is good for the enviroment and does not burn a hole in her wallet.

Thank you so much for giving me the information I needed to make the switch. I can now say that I do have a "Happy" period
