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 :)

There is a learning curve! I am purchasing a couple Sckoon Organic pads as I am adjusting. I don't have leaking that bad, but there's one day of my period each month where it's just messy it's so heavy (sorry tmi). The organic pads just make me feel better knowing there's some backup on that really heavy day.

I think it's a very smart choice to try a menstrual cup as a nurse. Now you just have to find the right one(s). I use 2 sizes of the same cup. My first experience was with Instead in 2002. I tried Divacup many years later, but it didn't fit right. I have a lower cervix on my heavy days and then the last day or two my cervix travels back up high. I find that both SckoonCups work for me.
