I always struggled with tampons (either because I'm too small or my fingers were too short to push it all the way in...) and a cup is definitely so much easier! Considering this was the first cup i ever purchased, i'm very pleased to find it's the right fit. My period is generally not super heavy and I can get away with emptying the cup (I got a small size Ruby cup) just twice a day, which is so much nicer than having to deal with changing pads or the smelly rubbish it creates. Definitely worth the money, convenience and lack of rubbish. Would recommend!
