Love this cup. It was softer and affordable unlike other brands I had checked out. It was my first time using one and I found that it wasn't as difficult as I expected. I was skeptical that it wouldn't stay in place or that it would leak all over. I didn't think they would work for a heavy flow but it turns out it works much better (don't have to change as often and so far no leaking.) It's strange because a lot of people have never heard of them....menstrual cups are not really advertised. Excellent product and perfect for anyone!
