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?

One hundred percent worth it. The cost, the learning curve all worth the freedom.

A while back I wrote a blog post about the Journey to My Goldilocks Cup.

My first cup, The Diva Cup, wasn't right for me, and I went through a couple of other cups before finding my Goldilocks cup, but that was because I was impatient and kept buying cups without really figuring out what wanted/needed in a cup.

Cups aren't for everyone, and they aren't perfect, but neither are any of the other alternatives.
