Hi everyone,

I have been reading posts on this site for about two years now and just wanted to contribute my story for anyone who is nervous about trying cups.

I got my Mooncup UK (small size) in Autumn 2011 when I was 14. I found it very painful to use at first but sorted out position and haven't had that problem since. I am a virgin and hadn't used tampons before due to TSS concerns, this did not seem to be a problem.

Due to my very heavy periods I created a murder scene in a school bathroom on my first period with the cup, thankfully this only happened once! I could not cope with my periods without the cup and wish I had the courage to encourage more of my friends to get them!

Thanks for such a great forum which has been really helpful to me!

Kudos to you for being so open minded at such a young age! I'm in my 30s and still find it hard to mention anything period related to my friends. :(

Glad that it's working so well for you! One time in college I printed out a flier that had little tabs directing people to this website. I went back a few days later and a lot of the tabs were gone! That might be a nice, anonymous way to tell girls at your school about cups.

That's a cool idea.

I am so happy that you are finding out so young! I am now 17 (which is not really that old, lol) and I have had great success with my Ladycup this last year.

When you found it painful at first, was the pain like a burning pain? I'm 16, a virgin, and I've just got an MCUK. I'm having a lot of trouble getting it in past a certain point because it starts burning and no matter what way I angle it it refuses to budge.
