Its usually odour free and most reviews claim menstrual cups to be really comfortable and easy to use.

Is a Menstrual Cup hard to put in and take out?

I had the exact same concerns and frankly also the main reason that was keeping me away from making the switch. But then, once I bought the pack, I found that all instructions are clearly stated on its packaging not to mention the many helpful YouTube videos that explain the process of insertion and removal in the most understandable manner. So no, once you get a hang of this, first time around, its fairly simple to use a menstrual cup.
