I sort the waste very strictly and the only thing which ended up in a dustbin was tampons and lots of pads. Now I don't need a rubbish bin at all! Moreover, the cup is ideal for sports, especially swimming. The beginnings weren't so difficult. All you need to do is to read the user guide carefully beforehand. Even though I have the smaller one it doesn't leak. I forgot to remove it a couple of times and the cup worked with no problems up to 24 hours. I only suspect it of making me feel like peeing sometimes. But then I only turn it slightly and the feeling stops. The main thing is that the use is easy. I don't want to have anything to do with tampons or pads anymore!
