Hi all,

I was a Diva Cup user several years back, but had to quit my menstrual cup days for a couple reasons. I wanted to get back into it, and I looked around to see if there were any better options, and I found the Femmycycle. I'm on my first period with it right now, and despite being used to menstrual cups, I'm finding it *very* messy. Way more messy than my Diva was, and the whole point of the design was to be *less* messy. I have the bigger size and have no problems getting it in.

Does anyone else have experience with it?

I had one for about a year. The trick is to make sure that the top of it is all the way open and not folded in any way. (The bottom will be wrinkled and folded up and that's just how it is.) Otherwise you will bleed past it if the outer rim along the top is not pretty much completely covering your cervix. I always found it way more fiddly than a traditional cup but the weird design is actually great if you tend to be afraid that you might cough/push a traditional cup out (bad PC muscles) and if you find the ring handy. Removal was usually pretty messy for me but I rarely have to empty any cup outside the shower so not a huge deal.

Thanks for the reply. Good to know I'm not the only one having that experience.

Also, I love your icon. That book is probably one of my favorite things, ever.
