I want to share my story with you, as I think there are more people with the same experience. During the past years, there has been a very positive development in "green living". Enthusiastic as I am about this development, I bought my first menstrual cup this spring. I was so excited to try it, after reading many stories of enthusiastic menstrual cup-users - but once I tried inserting it, it was só painful. I have struggled with pain (during sex) over the past years, I however never expected this pain to also occur with inserting a menstrual cup. And stubborn as I was, after this first painful experience I've tried it several times again (also with some lube), but it just didn't work for me. As the cup was the smallest size (for teenagers), it couldn't really have had anything to do with the size. Somehow, I wish there would be more information out there directed towards people with vulvodynia (pain in the vulvar area) - and also I would love to hear if there are more people like me who have struggled with this, and maybe even have overcome this pain? Anyway, thanks for reading my story - and hurray for all the amazing vulvas out there!
