Family member recommended these even though they weren't perfect for her. She's had one kid and had trouble getting a good 'seal'. Everyone's hooha is different.
For me, they're less intimidating than a Diva cup and don't leak most of the time. Wear a pantyliner or a backup pad unless you're really confident.
They're surprisingly big but (maybe 1/2 inch tall and 2.5 inches across). You scrunch them to put them in and once it's open and in place it shouldn't bother you, same as a properly inserted tampon. I wear mine up to 12 hours depending on the day. Heavy days will likely require a changing before then, especially if you have a lot of clots.
Be careful pulling it out. If you think it's stuck, it's not, relax and try again. Push the edge up and down to break it loose and SLOWLY remove or you risk... splatters. Dump in the toilet and toss it away, they're not flushable and that could make an embarrassing plumber bill.
-you can pee with it in, unlike tampons which can get the 'braid' wet (for me anyways).
-much lower risk of TSS (or so they say)
-longer wear time. Fall asleep? That's okay!
-no pulling out a half soaked tampon-ouch!
-you can have sex with one in. Warn your partner, he will feel it. Wouldn't try it unless it's a freshly inserted cup or it could be a mess.
-probably not environmentaly friendly since they're plastic. But I prefer Tampax Pearl with the plastic applicators anyway.
-can have a learning curve. Might take a few tries to learn how to get it in properly. Don't panic if you think it's stuck, you'll tense up and make things more difficult. Try squatting if you can't reach it.
-can leak, but so can every other method. Backup is a way of life.
-this is gross but if you have to poop it's probably going to move the cup around if you strain/bear down and it might slide out or dislodge and leak.
Tldr; I use them every month now. They've really been worth it for me. Your experience may vary based on having been pregnant or given birth or just based on your body.
Save money, cheaper than Diva Cup that needs replacing every 3 years ($40, vs $25 for 3 years of Soft Disc) and tampons or pads that cost about $10 per month ($360 vs $25 SC)
Can have sex while wearing = period sex
More sanitary than DC - new cup for each period
Easy to keep where needed (work, purse, car, etc)
Holds 2.5x as much as DC
No TSS (advantage over tampon)
More eco friendly than tampons or pads
Great for swimming, running, active life
Never smells bad
More comfortable than tampons, and other menstrual cups when properly inserted
You might have to learn a new way to insert you menstrual cup because these are put in differently than Diva cups and tampons
Might take a couple of hours to get used to the feel the first time you use them (took me a little time to readjust after having my first baby)
Messy like other menstrual cups (especially if not taken out correctly)
Will save so much money, you might not know what to do with the saved money
Eliminates excuse of "I'm on my period and can't have sex" (don't worry, headache excuse is still untouched ;)
