Menstrual cups are more popular than ever, but what does one actually feel like when you use it for the first time?

In the video above by Buzzfeed, a few women try menstrual cups and document their whole day. From how it actually goes in (you have to see some of these reactions) to how long they can stay put, this is one way to learn about menstrual cups if you haven't used them before.

Menstrual cups or period cups are small insertable cups made from non-toxic, non-absorbent and flexible materials like silicone. Priced at about $30 to $40 a cup, they can be used for up to 10 years and are eco-friendly — compared to pads and tampons.

While most reactions of using the cups for the first time were positive, some women did mention additional leaks and how hard it was to take the cup out. Other women have noted these cups don't give off any odours and some say it can even relieve cramping.

Watch the video above and find out why these women are making the switch from pads and/or tampons.
