I'm new to menstrual cups and will be trying my first cup this evening. There were some pretty good sales and coupons over the break so after doing a ton of online reading and YouTube watching I purchased three sets, a super Jennie small and large, an eva cup small and large, and a ruby cup small and large. My plan is to start with the small cups before opening any large and if the smalls work well I will donate the unopened large cups to my local women's shelter. I purchased the super Jennie and Eva cups because I liked that they were made in America and the reviews were good, and I purchased the ruby cups because I really like their mission to donate to a girl in Kenya.
Fortunately my super Jennie and Eva cups came today because so did my period! Today was the first day back to school after Christmas break. I woke up at 5:45 and my period started at 6. Ah, the luck of the Irish. I can't wait to try them and plan on trying the small super Jennie first. I'm going to boil them when I make my dinner (in a separate pan lol) and try it out tonight.
Any tips for a new user? It probably seems excessive to have purchased three sets but the prices were good, I had coupons, and I really wanted to donate some after researching a lot about women's health issues.
