Anybody have this problem? When I take out my cup or put it in it makes suction noises. This is the one thing I hate about cups! And since most people don't know about cups so if they would hear those weird noises coming from the stall, they would think I was doing something weird in there.
I have to put my cups in by letting them open and fill with air before I push them in. This is when a lot of the noise happens. How can I get around the noise or get rid of it totally? Any ideas? I can't always wait for somebody to flush a toilet or turn on the hand dryer and everybody knows the coughing trick is lame. Luckily at school there is a one-person-only bathroom but I am concerned about the times when I have to go into one with stalls. I hate those!

Try going out of heavy bathroom traffic times, during a class perhaps?

Honestly, I just wouldn't worry about it. Most people try to not hear what's going on in other bathroom stalls, and if for some reason the social order breaks down enough for someone to ask about it you can explain it's a menstrual cup or, you know, just walk away.

I would advocate not caring about it. What's the worst that could happen? If you think about it, you'll probably realize it's actually not that bad at all.

Cough. Or sing. Bawdy sea shanties. Loudly.

i think we feel like people can hear much more than they really do :D

i wouldn't say it's worth switching brands, but which cup do you have? meluna is supposed to make a more rubbery noise, though this doesn't happen for me. a stiffer cup will probably be more abrupt.

I'd rather be in a bathroom and hear a suction noise than a huge fart. lol. And you're more likely to hear the latter :p

Haha, I second this. I'm way more grossed out by farting/pooping noises than I am menstrual product noises of any kind.

And honestly, I'm such a menstrual cup evangelist that on those days when I'm in a public restroom, and my cup makes some noise? I almost kind of hope someone WILL ask me about it, so I can go on my proselytizing rant about menstrual cups. :)
