I've been looking into menstrual cups and I am rather frustrated. I'm young (under 20 but over 17), a virgin, have never used a tampon or had anything up my vagina. I don't think I have my hymen anymore (incident). I have noticed that women who laud menstrual cups have had to try different ones before getting them to work (way expensive), and those who are trying are constantly dealing with leaks and troublesome/painful insertion or removal or both. This is despite all the research they have done. It's not like they are cheap, or there is a one size/stiffness/length fits all. But I really liked the idea. Honestly, looking back at ur menstrual cup experience, or going thru it now, was it really worth it?

It was absolutely worth it. You're right. Many people here take awhile finding their perfect cup. I just picked mine based on color, and have never needed another. I spent $31 on two orange lady ups back in November 2009, and haven't spent another dime on menstrual products since. I love cups. I preach to others abOut them. As far as I'm concerned, there is no other way to deal with Aunt Flo.
