Cora Menstrual Cup
I read online that it takes a few tries to get used to, and that was true for this product. But I was expecting it. I used a pad to care for any leaks for my first few cycles using it, and I got it down around the 3rd period I had. It works very well, makes me feel better about not using as many pads, and makes me feel like I'm not on my period at all. I don't have the worry of leaving it in too long like tampons, and I don't feel it at all, I will say; getting it out the first time was a little freaky, but I watched some videos and read about how to get them out, and as long as you don't panic, it will come out. It's not the easiest to use in terms of cleaning, but I would rather clean it than have a trashcan full of gross period stuff. Plus for me, it will be a one time purchase with a few thin pads per cycle and I won't have to worry about spending so much money on tampons and large pads! Also; I have had 4 children, typically have a decent flow, and I only "overflowed" on my heaviest day once. The rest of the times I changed it, it was about half full.
