I've been researching them and thought I would ask some women that actually use them. Do you love them? How easy are they to use? What about cleaning it??

Love mine
Wouldn't ever use anything else
There's a learning curve, the first three cycles I thought about throwing it out, and my bathroom looked like a crime scene at least once.
But, once I got the hang of it, I would never use anything else.

I used something similar once. but back then I had the most horrible periods like im talking insane and i was young so it was probably a bit big and if i moved wrong it would kinda spill out. now i barely bleed, mostly tinted mucus. so i dont even need tampons anymore thank heavens. there are a lot of ways to disinfect it.

Cleanings a breeze. I wash it out during my period. I boil it afterwards.

A friend of mine uses one and loves it. Says its even less of a mess than tampons. I can't use it or the moon cup. My anatimy is weird or something cause they always leak.

Benefits too, my periods are shorter, many people have less symptoms.

Tampons are filled with chemicals (which you insert right into your body). This is chemical free. Which lessens symptoms, and can even make periods shorter.

That's usually something that happens over time. I have been using it for almost five years, and have noticed my period is much shorter, and lighter.
