These menstrual cups are fantastic! I’ve always hated and been uncomfortable with tampons. I have too heavy of a flow for pads. These cups might have taken a time or two to adjust and get used to using properly but once that adjustment period was over I could not imagine using anything else. I save myself so much money not having to buy tampons every month. I never have to worry if I am prepared when Aunt Flow comes knocking. I love this cup! I’ve even noticed that the severity of my cramps have lessened with use. I did start using this cup post birth (c-section) and over the age guidelines but wasn’t comfortable with the size 2. The size 1 works great for me.
