The menstrual cup is environmentally friendly and makes sure you have an intimate knowledge of your periods. Some girls like them. However some girls struggle to insert them well and some have trouble removing them. It's a skill. Choosing your menstrual hygiene method is every girl's personal choice - different things suit different bodies. Tampons are designed to absorb fluids. So long as you are using the right absorbency for you, they should be easy to insert and remove and shouldn't 'dry you out'.
