    They come in different sizes!!

    I went to boots to buy a mooncup yesterday and was surprised they come in different sizes. The question is, how do you know which size is for you? At 21.99 i don't want to have to buy it twice xx

    Size 1 for ladies under 30 who haven't given birth vaginally and size 2 for if you have or are over 30.

    daft question maybe, but how do you use it/fit it? is it comfortable? what about emptying/disposing? i always used tampons before pregnancy as i think pads are yucky tbh so having something 'there' kwim doesn't (generally) bother me, but haven't a clue how thesework.

    you fold it and insert it, is liek mastering the nack of a tampon. emptying it is easy, you just do it in the sink(or toliet bowl) and rinse it then re insert

    oh right, so it opens up when it's in so to speak? is it a soft material then? the pic on the website you showed it looks hard and plastic like.

    omg, all i can think is the look on peoples faces rinsing it out in marks and spencer toilets :rofl:

    periods are def a thing i haven't missed since being preg!!! :lol:

    there kinda rubbery, you dont need to change it as much as a tampon, so changing it in public isnt usually an issue

    ohhh right! no problems with 'leaking' etc? how long does 1 last both in re: to use and to overall useage then?

    i know when i changed from pads to tampons it felt great knowingthat i wouldn't end up 'leaking' or ruining underwear!

    sounds like something i'd like to givea go once i've had baby and been given the allclear etc

    sorry for all the questions, they don't sound half as /hard to use now! thankyou!!

    I have always wondered about these but the thought of leaking or soemthing scares me, it took me years to get used to tampax!

    Might have to look into them after babas here, read so many good reviews but still weary!

    :rofl: at you being drunk and forgetting!! could you imagine having to ask partner to get it out whilst slurring about him passing you the make up remover wipes :rofl:

    8hours isn't bad going at all!

    thanksfor all the help, will def be investing in one after having baby! like i saidi'd heard about them but didn't have a clue, look a bit intimidating to say the least :lol:

    Thanks for the info lady's. One more question. DO you keep it in at night? Is it safe to use all day and night through out your period? xx
