Now, I’m not one to sugar coat things so I’m going to be completely transparent with the initial experience I had with my plastic pal. It took me more than a couple of attempts to get the bad boy in and out before I perfected a clockwork method.
Putting it in takes some bending, squeezing and patience but once it’s in, you’re good to go. Taking it out on the other hand. Wow. Well, that’s another story. I was in the shower verging on tears; thinking ‘I am NEVER going to get this bloody plastic piece of shit out of me’. Tugging, grabbing, squishing, I was totally exasperated and freaking the f**k out (excuse my French). Finally, I pulled myself together, took a deep breath and went over the instruction manual again. ‘Small gentle pushes’ — it instructed. Immediately I recognised the flaw in my technique. I was pushing as if I was giving birth to a 10 pound baby and not only that I had accidentally cut the ‘stem’ FAR too short, which hindered the ability for me to actually grab it to pull it out. So some gentle pushes later, followed by an unattractive suction sound and VOILA, it was out. Breathing a sigh of relief I stood gazing at my little cup of womb lining—only for a split second—and thought ‘Ew‘, winced; then poured it down the drain.
It’s rather vile for me to admit that it was sort of fascinating to see how much blood actually comes out of you, (grateful that I don’t have a heavy flow and a wide-set vagina). Men think we’re melodramatic psychopaths when it’s the time of the month but I’m preeeety suuuure they’d be the epitome of pathetic if they bled from their precious jewels. Either way they truly don’t get the stress we go through, and now were shoving silicone cups inside ourselves…Jog on lads. [And at at that moment Keeo realised woman are and always will be superior to men]
To wrap it up, I HIGHLY recommend you at least try the Mooncup. I haven’t looked back since, and getting it in and out is now smooth sailing. Click here if you want a fanny friend for life and check out the video below for information
