How Do You "Spread the Word"?

This may seem like a ridiculous question, but I have been a COMPLETLEY" satisfied cup user for nearly 10 yrs now (I am on the hunt for a new cup to replace my beloved keeper as it's starting to show signs of needing replacement). I have talked to a couple of my friends about switching but they usually respond with a typical "GROSS!" that most women jump to when they don't understand what it is, or how it works.

I know that one of my friends definitely won't ever try it, but I was rather hoping that I could still find a way to encourage other friends to look into it.

My 13 yr old daughter recently started using a cup and loves it - if a young teen can get over it surely a grown woman can! LOL I was shocked when I asked our doctor about the cup as an option for her in lieu of pads she had never heard of them & recommended she not use anything you have to insert! Just goes to show that even a medical professional is inclined to discourage the use of something they don't understand, even before they research it! That happened at least a year and a half ago, and I'd be willing to be she hasn't given cups a second thought since then and still knows nothing about them. What a shame!
