    I use one and am very happy with it. I gave a small one to my DD1 but she couldn't manage to insert it, so is still using disposable pads instead. (She doesn't like the idea of cloth pads.)

    I have the problem that my flow is very heavy for the first couple of days, so I am frequently emptying the cup during that time, and have to wear a pad at night for the first two nights. I guess I should really get some cloth pads. I hadn't yet because I've been telling myself it was a short term abberration, but it has been over a year now. Actually, I've used a small bamboo booster from an MCN before, I think I should do that again. DD7 is out of nappies so they are just going to waste anyway.

    PS: I hate disposable pads so much that I used terry flats at home instead of maternity pads.

    Edit: I just realised the above PS probably removes me from the category of "normal person" with regards to the original question.

    I bought a cup last year and then found out I was pregnant before I could use it

    I've had one period since DD4 was born in December, would it be ok to use the cup for the next period or do I have to wait longer for my body to go back to normal after giving birth?

    Also another question, ppl say that sometimes it takes a bit to figure out how to get it in the right spot, do you just keep trying when you have your period or do you practice when you don't have one? TIA

    If you've had your 6 week check up I can't see why you shouldn't use it next period. ( I may be corrected on that)

    Do not use it for trial runs as the seal you make with the cup can be hard to break without sufficient fluid present. You just keep trying when you have your period - 'playing' in the shower works best as you can rinse it easily if you insert and remove it.
