Hi everybody,
Just new to the community, I have ordered and still waiting to receive my cups.
I’m a flight attendant so there’s a chance I will be on a plane for all days of my period. I am a domestic flight attendant in Australia so my flights range from 1-5 hours, and I can do 2-4 a day.
I know for a fact air pressure affects a lot of places on your body. Has anybody had experience with a cup on the plane, any flight attendants out there with any advice or tips?!
Thankyou very much.

I have used my cup on a plane as a passenger and I honestly didn't notice a difference compared to using it on the ground. I could see that it might fill up a little faster if the air expands in the low pressure situation.

Another thing that happens generally is something that I've heard called the "waterfall effect". It feels like little bubble or leaks are coming over the top of the cup. This feeling is caused by little bubbles of air leaving the cup as the air is displaced by the blood entering it. I could see that this might happen more if the air is expanding.

We're all different. Wear backup until you know that you can trust it.
