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?

I think maybe you get a slightly skewed view of how hard it actually is to find the right cup because this is one of the main places people go when it doesn't go OK. Personally, I heard about menstrual cups, bought a DivaCup at the health food store, and it's worked perfectly for years now - never really felt the need to post about it, because it just works! Maybe we should have some kind of cup love-in to correct the balance :)
