Mixed feelings

This has been pretty tough for me to use. Instructions say to try and 'rotate' it after insertion, to make sure that it has fully opened. But once I've got it lodged in I can't seem to rotate it. Word of advice for anyone else new: don't try this as soon as you start spotting; you are probably not lubricated enough there, so it might be painful and way too frustrating. It was much easier when my period 'properly' started. A lot of people talk about cutting the stem down but I find that I might prefer it slightly longer? Strange thing is, I can sorta 'feel' it right after insertion but after a while I think my body adjusts the device in naturally. What happens then is that when I try to remove it, the stem almost completely disappears and it's time-consuming to try to get to it. This is only the first month of using it, and I've read plenty of reviews saying that it got better around the 2nd or 3rd month. Hence I'm not going to be too hasty to write it off. Right now, I am not confident that the cup can be used alone without a pad. I'm still trying to figure out how often I need to empty it, and so far it has leaked a bit through the stem. Good thing I was prepared! It seems that this works more of a less chemically-active, cheaper alternative to tampons. But it really is pretty messy and not great if you're stuck with tiny bathroom stalls. I'm feeling pretty lukewarm about it.

Everyone recommended this cup too me.. And i really wanted to like it, maybe its just me, but i had to struggle a lot to get it out, and to get it in.. I tried so many times before i got it in and out. I will not be using it anymore, tampons is so much easier.

Cant find it anywhere this cheap! I've only used it for one cycle and i'm still undecided about it. I ended up cuting a little bit of the stem off and that helped but i'm thinking that maybe i need to cut more. It's great for sleeping, cant feel a thing. But the second i go to walk a lot I start to feel it.

Great concept...better for the environment, however, i'm still trying to figure out how to use it.

it's awkward

It is probably a great product for many women, but it's just not for me. I really wanted it to be, because of all the benifits, but I'll probably only use it when camping and backpakcing. I'm going back to environmental tampons for now.
