I was sent to this page by a post a read on another online image forum. It sounded like a great idea!!! I am just beginning to work in a medical field (will be a real RN soon!), and I'm not sure when I will ever have time to change a tampon once I'm working (not many people even take bathroom breaks). The cup would be a dream come true!

Anyways, I've been reading around the page for a few weeks, but I am a little scared of my lack of knowledge (even after all my lurking/reading). I'm not sure even where to begin on buying a cup (26, non-virgin, no children... heavy flow for 2-3 days in the very beginning of my period). Also I am unsure about the leakage it seems like everyone has. Is it pretty common when you are first starting to use a cup??

I appreciate any and all help or advice that comes my way :)

I also love the large fleurcup. And like Kuradi said, if it's full, it's full, and it's going to leak/overflow. If you have a heavy flow you probably won't be able to wear a cup for 12 hours without it being full. Just sayin'. We all wish that was true, but when it's full, it's full. Get used to inserting/removing a cup at home, and you'll be able to do it at work in a flash. Most hospitals have those 1 person restrooms which are perfect--the sink is right there. If you have to use the restroom, use the restroom. Don't try and tough it out and hold it your whole shift, you'll just end up with problems later on.
