The cup is easy to use though some time is needed to switch from using pads to inserting a cup. This is my second month of using it and I think I'll need to purchase a Size 3 because of my heavy flow. I need to empty the Size 2 cup every 2-3 hours on my first 2-3 days. Overall I love the cups! It's easy to use and no boiling is needed between periods. Seriously, what more can you ask for?
Honestly the only cup I have tried that is guaranteed not to leak! The double rim is genius! I was worried it would be harder to get out, but it really isn’t. It is more rigid than others I have tried, which means it is ever so slightly harder to keep folded for insertion with one hand, but the benefit is that it always pops out properly when it is in place!
I really like the feel of the cup and it doesn't hurt when it pops open inside for me like usually more rigid cups do but this also makes it soft and a bit hard to insert because it keeps flopping. I don't find it has suction, if it fills or moves around I leak. The not boiling is a HUGE plus though. I also like the pinched bottom with grooves for fingers. It's way easier to take out than most cups.
This cup is amazing. Im a aerial dancer and this cup stays in place and doesn't leak throughout all my routines and work out sessions. I even go to the rest room without fear of it falling out, the suction is amazing. It's super easy to clean. I use diluted peroxide to remove stains after a cycle. I would recommend this cup for women like me with an active lifestyle. I can't even express how much I love this cup.
I may try a smaller size but I think it's the firmness of the cup. It was really hard and uncomfortable. I was always conscious that it was there but when it was time to remove it was a little hard to press to break the seal. The design is spot on for a good deal.
