Experience

As someone who has struggled with more mainstream contraception, this was a miracle. Zero side effects and non-invasive! You’re able to insert it up to two hours before sex so it doesn’t have the moodkiller effect of a condom, and neither partner can feel it once it’s in, unless you’re searching for it with a finger. Inserting and removing it takes a little getting used to, but the initial learning curve is very much worth it. (And any Mooncup users will find it easy enough.) Note you will need to be fitted by a nurse/ health practitioner to ensure its effectiveness. This can be tricky to find unless you live in a larger city/ you have a very thorough doctor, but it was worth persisting for me.
