Yay! I love mine too, although everyone seems to have a bit of a learning curve at first. That's one of the reasons I love the internet!

I have a IUD so I am kinda worried about that aspect and hate tampons, as in won't use them so worry I will hate it but I really want to try one. Do you have to have really good muscle tone down there to keep it in? ./l

I just bit the bullet and ordered one, I found one for 28.01 including shipping! I am super excited lol.

Katie, I don't think muscle tone has much to do with it. More muscle would more likely have you trying to expel it. I know when I have heavy days sometimes my cervix dilates a little(can tell with cramping) and then my body tries to get rid of the foreign object. But realistically muscle tone shouldn't worry you from trying it.

I'm planning on trying it when i get my cycle back. I saw it in WF the other day and alm ost grabbed it to have on hadn, but I can find it cheaper online.
Hopefully, i won't need to use it for a few more months, but when i do i want to be ready.
