From another happy Tiny Tapir Mooncup user :
“I’ve been using pads ever since I started having my period. However, I was always looking for an alternative. The pads made me itch, and sometimes if I walked around a lot, I’d get rashes, and this would be very painful and uncomfortable for me. Also, everytime I sat on a chair or lay down on a couch or bed I would worry about staining the furniture and not be very comfortable as I would try to maintain a single position that wouldn’t risk me leaking on the furniture.
I wanted to try tampons, but I read a lot about infections caused by the tampons, so I was afraid.
Then one day, my sister-in-law told me about menstrual cups. I read about them and did some research, and against my fears I decided to try.
At first I was afraid of putting it on as I couldn’t imagine putting anything that big into my privates, but I tried anyway.
Lo and behold, it was the best thing that had ever happened to me! I could walk around comfortably without feeling self conscious. I could sit and lie down and roll around as I please without worrying about leaving bloodstains on any furniture.
I’ve never felt so free!
Menstrual cups are definitely one of the best things I’ve discovered in my life. It is something that I would most definitely recommend to any women I know.”
