  • I’ve heard many positive reviews. I’ve never used one myself but would give it a go.

  • I’ve been wondering this myself as I’ve read they’re great and better than using chemical-ridden tampons. I wonder if they work for everyone though.

  • There’s a great FB page and group called Put A Cup In It, which is a great source of info on using these products, discussions of different cups available etc. Well worth joining the page.

  • I found initially it can take a few tries to get it sitting comfortably. But they are MUCH better and freeing. I couldn’t imagine going back to convectional methods.

  • I am really keen to try but still really nervous so I haven’t bought one yet but I think it is something I’ll try to overcome soon.

  • Thanks so much Ambergrace for your response and definitely not TMI – really helpful! :)

  • I’ve never used one. Will be interested to read others experiences with them sanitary items are so expensive!

  • @mom93821 some of this may be TMI so beware lol i bought mine from Pelvi.com it was approx $45 for 2 or $38ish for 1. I started after i had my last baby and although i’ve always been fairly light and dont need many products each cycle, I’d say i’ve made my money back already. Pads used to irritate me and during summer due to sweat i’d sometimes get sores. I’m really happy with my purchase. It did take a day or 2 to get the hang of it

  • Out of interest Ambergrace is a cup expensive? I am sure the poster of the question would like to know – I would? Thanks :)

  • I’ve been using one for 1 months. Absolutely love them

  • Not used – but interested to know if it is effective.

  • I never used it myself, but my friend does and she is really positive about it.
