Thanks for all the tips, ladies. I bought the Cora cup and tried it towards the end of my cycle. My flow is a bit lighter then, so I thought that might be a good way to ease in. I’m still figuring out how to get it in the right position so it doesn’t leak, but hopefully I’ll get the hang of it next month. Bottom line: it’s not as scary as I thought! And not having to change it as often as tampons is definitely a game changer.
