So I’ve been thinking I’d like to try these because of this website – https://menstrualcupinfo.wordpress.com/, and I’d like to know if there’s a good brand you can buy at Walmart or somewhere like that. Thanks.

Hey 🙂 I’ve got a Cozycup (in the US they seem to be called Hengsong). They’re rather a noname product, but available on amazon and really cheap, which I think is fine for a first try (and you can always buy an expensive one later). I just had my first period with a menstrual cup and I used it on day 3-5 where the flow wasn’t as heavy as on the first days and I’m totally satisfied. The ony thing that might take some time to get used to is the feeling of “there’s something inside of me” and you should always feel if it is in the right place (so you need to know how to feel your cervix). 🙂

So, I don’t use one, but my sister does! She swears by it! I believe she uses an EvaCup, I am not sure the website. But she really likes it.

Thanks, Juanita. I’ll be sure and look that up.

I have had LadyCup for over a year now. You have to buy them online (I’d go to their website, and I know its a European company but you can get them in the US)
I’d say go for it, give it a couple cycles, play with the different folds, and use that forum as a guide. I learned a lot of how to use and not use them on there.

Mandi, I meant that you’ll feel the little stem or however this thingy is called. I know that some people cut it off because it distracts them. 🙂 And when you have to feel your cervix and checking if the cup is in the right place, you’re of course doing it with your fingers 😀 that’s what I meant.

I’ll check that too, Mandi!

Oh okay. I see what you mean now. I cut the stem off mine from the beginning. It wasn’t that helpful to me, and way too long. It wasn’t much of a learning curve after doing it either. Although I do also feel it when it is full. It’s a main indicator on my heavy days to change it earlier.
