I have been meaning to write my success story for a while now...its only fair to do so after i have had such a great experience with cups and mainly due to the help i have been getting from this community..
I am from a south indian background and anything going up there other than ur husbands love wand is a big no no...well i couldnt care less and strted to use menstrual cups as a 23 yr old virgin. I had used tampons only for a couple of months before that, but it started concerning me how it left fluff inside u and things started to get dry and irritated down there on lighter days...so looking for altrnatives other than pads, i stumbled on menstrual cups :)
After a lot of reading in here and watching youtube videos i decided to buy a ladycup which i have been using successfully for over a yr now...sure i had a learning curve and it was awkward and frustrating in the beginning but it did get better from the first cycle...
Soon after i bought a lunette for more capacity but it didn work that well for me as its frosted texture made insertion harder...so i gave it to my aunt and she seems happy enough with it..
I recently bought a yuuki (all cups in small btw) and its just great!!! Although i dont love my ladycup ny less :P
I found that for my anatomy the C fold worked best for ladycup and the triangle fold for yuuki (with the fold opening down and away from your pubic bone)...lunette...well nothing worked there -_-
So a big thank you to all the ladies who offer their help in here and to those who are thinking of getting a menstrual cup...GO FOR IT! Just make sure u read up on size and chose wt may fit u best :)
And for those that are frustrated and ready to give up...HANG IN THERE! It DOES get better with time and practice or maybe a different cup if possible..
I never though i wudw say this but i even look fwd to my periods sometimes :D
