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?

Absolutely--the work I've been doing for the past year (cruise ships) would have been a LOT more annoying if I didn't have my cups. It did take a few months to find ones that worked for me (having a very high cervix limits my options a bit, and I also needed something very soft) but I'm glad I did! I avoided my roommate's situation of having to run out to find tampons in the straight ghetto outside of one of our Caribbean ports (lol)...
