So I had posted a while back about having problems with the Rainbow cup and having bought the Yuuki cup set of large both soft and classic. I'm very happy to report: THEY WERE A HUGE SUCCESS!!!

I tested both during this cycle. I'm so happy. No leaks, felt comfortable enough after the second day to go without even a panty liner which I haven't been able to do since I was 13. No pain on insertion or during wearing them discomfort on removal till I got used to them. I went to help a friend get caught up on paperwork at her job and was gone for 9 hours... I didn't even bring my purse. Being on my period and forgetting my purse would have been a disaster before the cups. I was able to sleep for a full 8 hours without waking up because I could feel my tampon over flowing after 4 hours or less.

I will NEVER go back to tampons.

Oh, and the length of the Yuuki is perfect for me, I wont even need to trim the stem.

Could you comment on the differences/ wearing comfort/ insertion and removal you noticed in using the soft versus firm Yuuki?

Also, if the horse in your profile pic inidcates that you do horseback riding, it would be beneficial for other here if you could comment on whether you can use both while doing it, or only the firm.

To be honest I didn't have any more difficulty with insertion or removal with the firm than I did with the soft. Possibly because for the first few days I felt more comfortable with the concept of the softer one and got used to using it. The soft is more comfortable for me, the firm I can feel more just after insertion. Once I get used to the firm for a little bit I don't feel it but with the soft it is immediate. The firm is slightly more difficult to hold folded while inserting but didn't really cause me any difficulty.

And the horse in my picture has actually been in the groundwork phase of her training and I haven't ridden her yet. Her previous owners tried to break her at 2 years old and ran her into a T-post causing a huge gash to be ripped out of her side and then didn't provide her with proper vet care afterwords allowing it to heal on its own causing a lot of scarring. They also didn't do anything else with her after the accident just put her in the pasture as an ornament. She was understandably very afraid of everything so we have been taking everything very slowly. If everything goes alright today will be the day I climb on her for the first time but I'm not going to have her move off just get her used to me climbing on her bareback and sliding off while she stands still. Hopefully next month I will be to a point that I will be able to test out how the cups do during riding.
