    Hahaha, when you fold it, it's no larger than a tampon.

    Good luck, you'll love it and good on you for making the change.

    hahahaha! That was my reaction too!

    Good on you I really believe you wont look back - I won't lie it takes some getting used to - the first time you need to use it give yourself plenty of time and you can also find clips on youtube for different fold methods (not all fold methods work the same!) I thought I was a pro after doing so much research so when LW started while out shopping with DH I was like I got this and marched into the ladies - 20 minutes later and a half dozen missed calls from DH I had some explaining to do!

    I found a blog when I was looking into getting mine that I found HILARIOUS in case anyone is interested

    I have a lunette and love it.

    I was a bit unsure about which size to pick at first. I've had 3 vaginal births (larger cup recommended), but my flow is light and I have a low cervix (smaller cup recommended), so I went for the small cup and it's perfect. I did have to trim the stem though.

    I had a look on this review site which has reviews for heaps of different cups, and decided to try the lunette based on reviews. I ordered from Femininewear, a uk company.

    The other one that had a good recommendation and I was considering trying was the fleurcup, which you can order directly from their website (ships from France), or from the feminine wear website as well.

    Thank you so much for this amazing tip!!

    This is my first cycle trying the cup I bought over a year ago (I was actually UTD when I bought the cup, just didn't know it yet lol).
    Put it on and it was just so uncomfortable. After many tries, I went back to bubhub to look up the stupid thread that made me buy one in the first place

    Trimmed the stem, and voila!! Perfectly comfortable

    LOVE the menstrual cup!!! I've got a Lunette (also trimmed the stem).

    I seriously want to incorporate it into all my conversations with women as I want everyone to use one.

    I empty and wash mine in the shower morning and night, never had an issue with needing to empty it at work.

    Just had my first cycle with a cup, regretting not buying one when I was 20...seriously will be telling my DD's when they're older!

    My tip tho, I had to trim the stem and turn it inside out for comfort. 😳
