I have been reaserching a lot about menstrual cups and honestly I don’t mind using tampons and pads but a cup is more environmental and can stay in longer 👍. My mom is pretty understanding but I do not know how at all I would bring it up and what she would think of it! But I know she will be worried on how I am going to get it in (im 14). Christmas is coming up and I was thinking why not get her a cup as a gift and we can both try it out.I know it’s probally better to buy a menstruated cup for yourself but u think a diva cup would fit her because she has had 3 kids! I don’t know how awkward that would be (me to be buying and recommending products to her) because she is the mom. But excluding me, I think she herself could really benefit and she is always trying new things! Are menstruated cups really hard to adjust to compared t tampons and pads? And is giving my mom a mestrual cup a good idea? I would really appreciate any advice!👍😊

I find my cup more comfortable than tampons personally, even though I guess they are technically bigger in circumference than a tampon. I think a menstrual cup is a pretty unusual gift, but if you think your mom is open to it it could be pretty cool!

I am thinking about giving her a gift basket of a couple small things so that it will be casual😃

The Diva is a long bodied cup and doesn't fit some people. A brand that is a medium length is more likely to fit a Mom.

Skim/Read http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ The size chart that it points to is a little out of date. Google for others.

How about a small/large combo pack? One for you, one for Mom? https://lenacup.com/products/lena-2-pack

Thank you! The Lena cup combo sounds perfect! It has great reviews and says it’s great for beginners and it’s a pretty good price!
