I chose size A as I'm near enough 30 and have had two beautiful children who ruined my v jay jay and any pelvic floor muscles i may have had before they popped out. I found it funny on the instructions that the 'muscles' will keep it in. My first thoughts were "well I'm f****d then"
I have extremely heavy periods that last 7 days before light bleeding for 2-3. Being the unorganised mum that i am i didn't warm myself up to this like a normal woman may have done before her period began. Instead i came on and popped this in and honestly, after mid 1st day period i was converted to this little magic cup.
I did chop all the wobbly bit off the end as it was poking me and sticking out and was much better afterwards.
Chopping of the wobbly thing off i then went about my day worrying every 5seconds how i was gunna get it out now theres nothing to pull. "oh my gawwd am i leaking? its leaking!" It wasn't. Im 5 days in and have not leaked so far. you also literally poke a finger to the side, the suction releases and you pull it out gently. I will say I'm not keen on the putting it in part when it snaps into its position, feels slightly like its sucking the air into it. Doesn't hurt and isn't uncomfortable it just feels bit weird.
I'll be honest and say its really fascinated me how much I've been bleeding and informing my husband every time i change it that women are clearly the more superior race that we can go through this. Don't show your fellas, they don't like it. Ive been changing it every 3-4 hours but have gone a whole day out and had zero problems.
Ive found i don't like emptying it down the toilet i prefer pouring the blood directly down the sink drain, giving it a quick rinse then popping back in and wiping the sink down. I plopped it down the loo once and it slashed up at me and was traumatic and looked like i had massacred tiny little loo people down there along with it going up the back of my legs-arse. I suppose i could just pour it gently but its really put me off and i like giving it a rinse anyway. For that reason i wouldnt be keen on changing it while out but so long as I've done that before leaving gives me plenty of time to be sociable.
Reason i went for this is every single month id get thrush directly after day 1 of period. Along with cystitis and it was just breaking me. Even if i got tampax superplus from pound land id still go through a box of 12 in a day and then need a tammy in for nighttime with a pad. Thats around 7quid for the first week on tampa alone and they would just slide out and feel so uncomfortable and self conscious i have a tampon poking its head out the cave. Id then have to go find a toilet and insert yet another one, it would itch and give me weird stomach cramps, change the ph of my foof making it dry and irritated.
With one product for 17pounds I've already started saving money. I have no thrush, I'm not itching, no tummy cramps, don't have to worry about having 5tampons in my bag with spare knickers for leakage. This one little item has genuinely made my life much more comfortable in the space of a week. If i didn't have normal period pains i wouldn't even feel it its brilliant.
It's cut down £6 -£8 a month every month in sanitary products. It's saving the environment, no more waste tubes or pads, no plastic, lasts for years with sterilisation tablet use.
Way more comfortable than tampons as it doesn't dry your body out. Far cleaner than sitting in a dirty pad.
Needs changing far less often meaning I don't need to change if it's not convenient.
Why this fell out of fashion I'll never understand, its cleaner, cheaper and more comfortable.
You know that cringey dragging sensation you get when removing a tampon? And the feeling that is leaving behind loads of fibres? You don't get that. For me, that's a massive plus.
I trust it more then I trust a tampon. It holds more, it's more comfortable & I honestly sometimes forget I'm even on my period.
Not forgetting the environmental aspect which was the thing that made me buy one eventually!
If you try it, give it 3-4 cycles to get used to it. It can be tricky to get the hang of but, once you do, it will change how you feel about your period.
There are downsides, admittedly - I came on a week early whilst camping and (luckily!) had my mooncup with me. I was a bit unsure as to how I would get on with using it in a busy toilet block on a campsite. I managed it by just tipping the blood down the loo and then wiping the cup out with tissue. It was a bit messy & I think tampons would have been easier, logistically! However, the benefits still (for me) massively outweigh this very minor negative.
So far so good on the leakage front though...I've had no leaks, so that's good. I have a washable bamboo pad on though, just in case.
I definitely won't empty this in a public loo though. I think this would be a home jobby.
It’s especially good overnight - you know the first couple of nights when you’re at your heaviest and you sometimes leak - none of that with the mooncup. I don’t like tampons overnight and with pads you can feel the ‘flooding’ and it’s so uncomfortable. With this you don’t have that feeling and can just sleep easily. I honestly wish I’d used it sooner! Highly recommend
