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?

Someone above said it, the "oh no, I need help" posts greatly outnumber "woohoo, my cup works SO well" since success doesn't require input or support!

It is completely, totally worth it. There's no way I'd go back. Even back when I had issues with a cup that didn't work so well for me (without enough money to buy another at the time) I was better off than with tampons or pads!

I confess, I'm a cup junkie. I've owned close to half of the brands out there (at one time or other) and finally found my goldilocks cups. But I'm one of the more unusual types (extremely sensitive/need softest cups, very low cervix, large diameter required). Most people can make do with their first purchase unless the fit or their flow is really off.
