I was 17, but that wasn't an option and I didn't even notice till I submitted the poll and it was only 13-16. So I started using a cup during phantom year and can't read. ;)

i'm in the biggest group for both answers.
btw i think there's quite a bit of difference between 13-15 and 16-17.

I know... that is what the above comment said. I am sorry, I do not know how I left out 17 but it happened.I would have to remake the poll and everyone would have to vote again if it turns into a big deal. I guess the big categories show the mode.

i meant it more like, you combined some groups where splitting would make sense. there's a difference between being a virgin at 13 and at 16-17:) (and i suppose there are much more non-virgins in the latter category)

Yea that's true lol but one would hope not everyone 16-17 is sexually active lol. there really was not much thought put into this poll, I was just interested if young people (12ish years old) were using cups.

I wish your choices for the second question included more options. I've been using cups for about 14 years, and that seems so far from two years!

Wow that is awesome! Sorry I didn't really think about making more categories. I really was more interested in if there were any especially young people (10-13) that were using cups.

I'm more interested on the other end of the spectrum regarding older users. 29+ is a huge range, there are plenty of users over 40 but that is not reflected on. Also, I'm sure the majority of cup users on this forum have been using cups for much more than 2 years, it would be interesting to see how long they have actually been using them for.

That said I enjoy doing these surveys.

Speaking from the perimenopausal end of the spectrum... the 29+ choice did amuse me a bit!

FWIW, I'm ridiculously grateful for my cup because it helps me deal very happily with my wildly fluctuating periods. (And let's give a special shout-out to cloth pads, which are terrific backup.)

Lol, I'm a gen-X so I found it amusing to classify myself under 30 too. Cloth pads are fantastic back-ups, I thoroughly agree.
