The 42-year-old Fuller House star shared on her Instagram story that she hadn’t heard of a menstrual cup, an alternative to tampons that’s said to last longer and be be better for the environment, until fans started telling her about it a few months ago. So Cameron Bure decided to purchase one — she didn’t say which brand — and dive into the details of her experience.
To start, she said that she “loved it” despite her initial worries that it would be less comfortable and effective than tampons.
“It fit me really well,” Cameron Bure told fans. “I inserted it, it sealed. I left it in for 10 hours the first day. There was no leakage, no spotting, no nothing. I didn’t feel it … This is really cool, this is working.”
She also revealed that she was especially surprised about the results because the first day she used it she was “rigorously” exercising while filming Fuller House. “If this was going to fail at all, this would’ve been the time it was going to and it didn’t,” she added.
Next, she went into detail about the removal process, which she says can be tricky. “There were a couple moments where I was like, I don’t think this thing is coming out, but it did,” she assured fans.
