Using a Menstrual Cup Isn't Gross
In concept, the idea of a menstrual cup sounded weird and gross to me. But I realize now I just feared the unknown. In reality, it's tidier and less wasteful than using tampons. Every 12 hours, you just remove the cup, empty the fluid into the toilet bowl, and rinse the cup with warm water. The first time, I was surprised by the volume of fluid, since I'm used to the absorbency of tampons, but the sentiment was more "Wow!" than "Gross!"
