Warning: rant ahead

I am so tired of having to deal with horrible cramps and PMS every 4 weeks. It induces it hard to work, eat, sleep and do so many other things. And the only stupid solutions I get told about are” take some ibuprofen, don’t eat salty foods, drink more water, take vitamins” like shut up, my uterus is about to jump out of my body for a whole week NONE of these things is going to fix that clearly. But the medical profession never gave a shit about girls. I am SO SURE if humen were the ones having periods all these issues would have been resolved ages ago. I can’t believe it’s the 21 st century and I’m still suffering from PERIOD CRAMPS. And don’t get me started on the advice to take birth control pills. The only option that could work for heavy periods has so many shitty side effects. It merely attains me so mad every time I “ve been thinking about” it and I had to write it somewhere.

Hey! I’m someone who’s new to menstrual beakers. Grew up in a third world country where pads are the norm and the most accessible. Tampons are expensive, lol. I already have a cup but I haven’t actually have had an opportunity do a test run. I’m about to have my period in the next few days, so i was wondering if it is needed to do a test run, especially that I’m new to menstrual cups?

I’m switching to cups from pads. Never use a tampon either. I’m quite scared because what if i fail( but I’m aware of the learn curve all the girls faces when they build the switch )? I have lube ready just in case to help me when my period comes. I simply want this to work bec I’ve been hoping to stimulate the switching ever since, ive always merely been scared to do so. Hopefully it works smoothly for me.

This subreddit has been great help by the way i love find women supporting one another and helping each other out

EDIT: i spent an hour in the bathroom and not once was i able to insert the beaker despite having lube ready it hurt a bit, I wasn’t sure if i was doing it right, or i was already too tensed, or a mix of everything. I should try again tomorrow!
