Experience

Initial insertion was horrible for a couple of minutes as I haven’t had children. Two days of bad cramps. But then it’s been plain sailing for then. I’ve had one full period and then 3/4 spottings since, it’s never been enough to wear proper tampons. The strings a little long but you can get them cut (I’ve chosen not to because it supposedly makes removal harder). I’ve tried every other method and this is by far my favourite.
