i love mine now but when i first got it i was a little unsure and didn't think it would work for some reason. I had a bit of a freak out when i first used it and was convinced it was going to move/get lost or fall out but it didn't happen and actually the best thing ever for me !!

My friends who live in america have sworn by theirs for years and wouldn't use anything else but i am only in my third month of trying it so far so its a new thing for me

My Canadian friend had one, but discovered she was prone to yeast infections.

Don'tdoit - glad to hear a good review smile I have put mine in today and will see how it goes. Did you have any spotting or anything at the start?

Also I hope you don't mind me asking (and I understand if you don't want to answer? But I've heard it can make you quite dry when having sex have you found this?

Also is it noticeable when having sex? The reason I ask is because I am seeing someone new and don't won't him to see it if he's down there for any reason grin

I have been told I can take it out for 2 hours and will still be protected but I'm hoping the sex would go on for longer! Or Atleast happen a few times so I'm not sure taking it out would be a good option!

I was worried my partner may feel it as he is um gifted in that department but he said he didnt feel it and i did ask him if he could honestly but he said no so i doubt anyone would, it didnt make me dry infact it had the opposite reaction with me but i think it works differently with everyone

i had this years ago and got on fine with it, partner hated it and said he could feel it so ended up stopping using it
