I wrote a post earlier this month about putting together a "starter kit" for a friend's daughter who sounds like a great candidate for cups. Well, in a strange twist of fate, I had it on me at work today to leave in her mom's locker, when I just happened to see brown during my bathroom break.

Yep, Stealth Period almost caught me with my pants *up* as it were. But, as luck would have it, the Fleurcup was in my pocket, still sealed in its little plastic bag. There was just one problem, though; I have almost *no* room to work down there, and the stem on this one hadn't been trimmed. But I remembered a post from someone here about flipping them inside out and then, in she went using the C fold, opened exactly the same way the Diva usually does for me, all on the first try. I've been completely pain free (aside from my usual PCOS/Endo Period Hell) ever since. :D

SO MUCH BETTER than the Diva Cup! (Thank gods I had it in my pocket!)

I also love my Fleurcup much more than my Diva.

But does this mean your friend's daughter doesn't get a cup? :(

I'd gone in on the 2-pack from Fleurcup with the help of her mom. The other was still here at home sealed up. I only had that one with me to leave in R.'s locker for M. intending the one at home to be mine. So, I gave R. the other one today and gave her a quick "once over" of how it works. She was bemused, and the look on her face when she saw the bright green was hilarious. She thinks M. is going to think she's nuts, but we'll see what happens. It's only $10 lost if M. doesn't like it.
