I’ve been using tampons for as long as I can remember and they SUCK. Just as much as pads. That’s why I ditched them all together.
I’m finally not afraid of going out in public on my period and feeling like I’m a. going to leak and have embarrassing red spots all over my butt for the world to see and b. being SUPER uncomfortable because I’m wearing the damn thing.
When i found out about the menstrual cup like less than a year ago, I thought to myself, WHY HAVE I NEVER HEARD OF THIS BEFORE? It literally would have been a life saver that time I completely leaked through my jeans during lunch period in 11th grade and cried hysterically and had to wait until the room cleared to get up and run to the bathroom with a hoodie wrapped around my waist so I could call my Mom to come pick me up. OR that time when I totally leaked through my white dress….wait for it AND white graduation gown at the very end of my graduation ceremony….BOOM. That day sucked and was supposed to be one of the happiest days of my “adult” life.
This ENTIRE nightmare could have been spared had I known about God’s gift to all women: menstrual cups.
