I’m still waiting for my period to start. In vain. Much like I wait for that damn harp sound to float from my phone.
In keeping with my purchasing of super-lady-part-items I was compelled to buy one of these menstrual cups. Why, I am unsure. The idea of insertion is troubling. Ditto removal. But I like to be good for the environment and not create excess trash. I may be menstruating for 10 more years!
Or I may never ever get another period again, because I bought this damn thing.
I’m actually kind of anticipating trying it out. I think because it’s so pink that it makes me drawn to it. It’s so cute . The instructions on how to insert, remove, and better yet , what to do if it gets stuck and removal proves difficult, are not cute. But at least I’ve got a pamphlet so I know how to handle to situation. If said situation ever arises again.
I am hoping that there are no YouTube videos about how to use these. But maybe I hope there are. If it gets stuck we’ll all find out.
I’m pretty sure that if I never get another period again I will not lament this unnecessary purchase. But it’s not like I can, like, donate it to some cause that gives hygiene products to girls and women in need. It’s boil-able and sterilizable but who wants a second-hand menstrual cup?
Might even be too weird for a Portland free-box.
