Menstrual Cups are all the rage right now and why wouldn’t they be? Reduces cramps by 85%, 100% body-safe – not toxic like tampons… It’s an absolute life-changer!
It took me a good 8 years to wrap my head around the concept and ever since I made the change personally, I have helped hundreds of women make the best change in their lady lives!
As usual, hilarity ensues… Here you’ll see some humorous text messages from a great friend of mine, we’ll call her “M”.
Day 1 of trying the menstrual cup…. I hope my hands don’t smell like I fingered the volleyball team
Also… A day 1 first time incident happened… Wake up and it’s “period” day. Awesome. But wait – I have a menstrual cup sitting in its packaging waiting for this day AND a video from Trenny so I know what the hell I’m doing.
Ok. Opened package. Inspected cup. Put cup down and scrolled thru Facebook so we could bond without being awkward. Picked up the cup again and looked at it again. Watched the video. Watched an hour of more videos because I obsess like that. So I’m thinking, “I can do this – challenge accepted!” I raced motorcycles. I can figure out to get this damn cup in the right place.
As we all know, when day 1 starts thru the night, there’s some that’s already collected to welcome you during your morning relief on the potty. So after that morning routine, I make sure the ‘affected area’ is ready for business. I try about 4 of the 10 ways to fold it. This is awkward, right? And I’m thinking I plan on using my hands to like put lotion on my face and prepare food at some point this morning. So distracting. I recommend these thoughts get pushed away for newbies like me.
So then I feel like it’s not in right, so I remove it. Well. About that. It had already collected more of the overnight stash and now there’s blood all over the floor and my underwear that was on the floor. Like someone straight-up murdered a gerbil. Greeeaaattttt.
Sigh Plan B. Shower. Sounds cleaner. Well, I don’t have a seat in my shower and did not realize the importance of positioning for first-timers. So another half-ass job there. Then a redo after the shower and now you’re up to speed on my cup situation right now – hence the volleyball team fear.
Menstrual cup. Day 2. Day 1 was a confusing success, but a success. Day 2 created a new challenge – the pool. Cue the Jaws music… After cleaning it from overnight usage, I look at it and explain to us both – today will be a test. Tampons are a pain in the ass at the pool, so standards are low. Getting it in place dwindled down to four or five tries as opposed to 11 or 12. So that was good. Lo and behold, zero leakage. I could have worn turquoise bottoms instead of black. The journey continues.
Tomorrow I’ll have a workout. So that’ll be a new test. And at some point, I’m gonna need to poop. Final challenge.
I had to include my answer to this one… I get so many questions about pooping with the cup! There’s really no difference… Poop away! The cup won’t move and you should not feel a difference. If anything ever feels odd, just message me! I gotcha covered – there’s nothing I haven’t heard!
Well, I somehow managed to get it sideways one time. The damn thing just completely collapses and the little tab at the bottom was completely squished and unobtainable. I was like Great… None of the videos covered an F up like this. Imma have to wait and birth a plastic cup in 2 months (gestation should be way shorter since it’s already done right??) But I just smashed it closed and got it out. The shape holding wasn’t important at that point and it had already been emptied. Fear was the only thing involved then. But it’s all good at the moment. This is my life, Trenny. This one little piece of plastic represents so much…
This is crazy!!! Less cramps! I didn’t take any ibuprofen this time and I always do day 1 and 2. I needed some yesterday but didn’t take it just to see the difference. It was definitely better than with tampons!
And it’s over already?! OK! I’m SOLD! This is a life changer for sure! Feel free to use my texts – I’m sure there’s something in these to learn from! Haha
