*You can purchase your Diva Cup at any natural store or Amazon (like I did).
In my experience, change is always good. :-)
Have you used non-traditional menstrual methods? Let's talk about it in the comments section.
Edit to add: I received some great feedback about the Diva Cup but since I changed my comments to Disqus all of them were deleted (as well of all previous comments throughout the blog). I was able to able save these five though.
“I LOVE LOVE LOVE my DivaCup. I've been using it for about a year and I have NO plans of ever going back. Once I got the hang of insertion, I was a breeze. No fuss, no mess...it just felt so right.”
Glad you shared this topic!
I have never tried the Diva Cup, but I am aware that it exists. I was always curious about it, but too chicken to give it try. A few years ago, I went another route, with cloth pads, but that didn't last long. I think I might give it a try. It is eco-friendly and a lot cheaper in the long run.
I'm a Diva Cup Girl and have been for a couple years. It took me 3 months and a couple diva-tastrophies to figure the whole thing out, but now I'm grumpy if I don't have it. :-) Not sure I would swim with it and running is sometimes a challenge, but otherwise it is great!
Love Love Love my Diva Cup, until I accidentally threw it away. Oops. Lol. But I just ordered a new one and can't wait for it to arrive. It took me about the same time to get it right as it did with tampons and I no longer fear having something in too long or checking for leaks in the middle of the night like with tampons either. I wish I would've tried it sooner but I had a bad experience with an Instead cup back in the day and thought they were one in the same. Never again will I have to worry about keeping tampons with me, not keeping them in too long or having them stored in every possible place I might be when my period comes. But I gotta remember to keep the cup out of the trash can lol
Me and the diva cup don't have a great relationship. I've had it since I got my 1st period after the birth of baby girl. I've tried it a few times, but still have not gotten the hang of it.
I have not given up, but I did put it away for the past few periods. I got tired of dealing with it.
Maybe, it's time for me to try again.
BTW- I'm so glad you posted that video. I saw a video of hers awhile back, forgot her name and wasn’t able to find her again until now :)
