Been cupping for almost a year now, but have been successfully deploying the cup just for the last 4 cycles or so. Even if it sometimes feels like I’m placing/retrieving an entire drum set, I didn’t give up on it - so here I am with my zero-waste menstrual hygiene!
I’m using a Sckoon cup that I got via Amazon for ~20USD. Starting from the U fold, I find now that the 7 fold is what works best for me. Before and after use, I wash it with liquid castille soap.
Would be delighted to hear your experiences - successes, even horror stories? Folding techniques? Which brand you use? Cleaning and handling preferences? Let’s normalize menstruation as a topic!
