After more than a decade of no periods due to an IUD, I had it removed and restarted. I discovered that my former go-to, tampons, were very uncomfortable, and I could not get a cup in comfortably. I decided to take a chance on these, and actually looked forward to my period. It was amazing. Though I did have a day or so of a tricky removal, ultimately it was like not having a period at all. I was so comfortable, not a single leak, and I couldn't even feel it. I highly recommend, and I rarely feel strongly enough about anything to recommend. It is awkward, especially if you're on the heavy side, like me, but it was the best. I am going to try re-usable discs, but will definitely get these again, if necessary! I'm talking them up to my 12 year old too, as she hates tampons.
