I had been reading about menstrual cups for a while and honestly, I thought they sounded weird. Fast forward a couple years, I am actively trying to reduce my single use trash so I decided to give them a try. LOVE IT! I never leak, I only need to empty it twice a day, I never run out of tampons, easy to clean, and eco friendly. Was a bit of a learning curve getting it in and out, so I would recommend practicing while not on your period. Great purchase- I try to get all my friends to switch.
