I’ve been trying for SEVEN years..
I’ve literally been trying to use a cup for 7 years. I have gotten a good almost completely leak proof seal a hand full of times. And granted it hasn’t been quite 7 years because I’ve had two children since then so I obviously wasn’t using it while pregnant. But during times I was actively having a period over the last 7 years I’ve been trying. I’ve tried several different folds, I’ve tried two different cups, and I’ve looked up countless videos and blog posts about them. And I can not consistently get a good seal. Even the times I get a someone decent seal and it actually collects blood I leak plenty. But more often then not it catches little to no blood and it’s a leaky nasty mess! I hate sitting in pads full of blood and tampons since using a cup are like a swear word and I don’t swear! But seriously… who has to try this long? Something has got to be wrong! How do I fix this and have this blissful experience I was supposed to be having????
Well I tried a salt small too! I am sure I need a size 2 or regular due to my age and having birthed 4 children but I wanted to try a small just in case on the off chance I have smaller insides or something and the cup can’t fully open and thus leaks. I do feel all the way to the top of the rim and make sure it’s all open but after this long of trying to use one it blows my mind that I just can’t get this to work! 🙄🤦🏻♀️ So frustrating! Like I have not tried for so many years to just give up but I’m at a loss too 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️👎
