Took the plunge!

OMG!!! bought my first cup (keeper moon cup) and after using it for the first cycle wonder why I didn't know about these 25 yrs ago!I was so impressed and pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to use. I looked and researched for a couple months before purchasing a cup, being afraid I might not like the one I bought as money is ALWAYS (lol) an issue. I ended up with a moon cup. I was determined to like it. It came in the mail just in time for my cycle so I took a deep breath, remembered all the advice I had read, and put it in. I couldn't believe how easy it was! I wore it for 4 hrs, and worried about leaking, I decided to empty it. Out  it came no problem and reinsertion was a breeze. I used it my entire cycle without a pantyliner, slept with it in, and never leaked. It was such a relief to finally not have to worry about my cycle. See, I usually have a cycle that lasts 7-8 days and is extremely heavy having to change a tampon every 3 hrs and using panty liners as a backup, and still have accidents (gross!). I wanted to immediately call all my friends to tell them. It was such an awesome experience! My hubby, who is extremely grossed out by the whole thing didn't even know I had my cycle because there was no extra trash in the garbage can. It is so nice to have that little bit of privacy! I will definitely introduce my daughter to the use of menstrual cups when she begins to have a cycle. A BIG ,HUGE thank you to all of you who have posted here and helped me to have the courage to try something new.
