They look kinda scarey to get it and honestly the first few times I tried to get it in, it was tricky. The very first time it took me about a 1/2 hr to figure it out! But once I did figure it out it takes me no longer to get in really than a tampon! It only took me about 2 days of using it so that it was easy and by the end of my first cycle with it, I was a pro.
So don't give up with it if it seems frusterating at first (because it probably will be) because I LOVE LOVE my Mooncup, I couldn't live without it.
The reason I did not order the Divacup is they say that they donate part of their proceeds to womens charities and when me and 2 other friends emailed (seperate emails and I emailed them 2 times) them asking what charities the money went to they never responded back to *any* of us....made me kinda leary of them and I want to know where my money is going to- what if its a cause I dont belive in or can't support morally ya know?
I can't say enough how much I love my Mooncup, I tell everyone about it.
