A week ago I didn't even know such a thing as a menstrual cup existed. Then I saw an ad online and bought the advertised cup - a Lily cup. I'm 37, a virgin and have always worn pads and never tampons.

Looking on the 'net for some more information, I came across this site and read loads of posts while waiting for my cup to arrive. And it arrived today!

I'm at the end of my period so I reckoned I'd give the cup a test run when there'd be no real danger of a rush of blood or leaking. The Lily cup went in with no problem and with a little bit of fiddling, I had the cup open. Much easier than I expected. Anyway, I left it in while I went out for a walk and done some shopping and oh was it comfortable! I think I could feel it sometimes but then again it could all be in my head because I was so aware of having something in my vagina.

Anyway, I took it out after 6 hours. It took a bit of bearing down and a bit of a tug but nothing too much. There was a dribble in the cup so it appears to have worked! Can't wait 'til my next period to give the Lily cup a proper trial. 25 years of pads and not knowing about this great little invention.

Welcome! Yay, another Lily person! I haven't gotten to give mine a proper run yet since my period seems to be running late (this happens all the time). Since the cup is so new it looks like very few people have had a chance to try it--so far on the dry runs I've done I really like that I don't have to dig around for the stem since my cervix is quite high. Sometimes I was aware of the stem though (it hangs outside the vag a little bit but still inside the labia). But yeah keep us updated!
