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 worth it. I did a good amount of research on here (thank you, MC community!) before buying my first one, a soft Meluna S with ball stem. That cups works for me, but I was curious about what else was out there, and over the following year, I accumulated a small collection of various cups. I rotate them all - as some fit better on some days than others. I could have stopped at the first cup, but found others that were even better.

I discovered that I can wear my cups every day, so I am getting my money's worth, and they have given me a quality of life I never thought I could have as a woman. I wish I had known about them when I was your age!

Do your research/know your body, and you have good chances of finding a well fitting cup the first time.
