this. is. AWESOME!!!  Ladies, why did I not know about these cups fifteen years ago?  Who has been keeping this wonderful knowledge from the world?  Why are women forced to suffer through tampons and pads when these magnificent little devices are available?!?!?


ahem...sorry about that.  As you can see, I am thoroughly enjoying my first full day with my DivaCup.  I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting, but I am happy as a bug in a rug with it.  A few false starts on insertion, had to practice with some alternate folds. Suffered through a few hours with ladybits being poked by the stem until I solved that with a pair of sharp sewing scissors.  I'm learning how to empty a full cup without spilling it all over and making it look like my hand went on a homicidal rage. Slept with it in last night, and it was a JOY to wake up and not have blood spilling out of me as soon as I sat up.

I love this thing.  I may buy some and start passing them out to random women on the street. I will probably become one of those annoying proselytizing people who won't shut up about something.

I was that person. I bought one for my best friend and she's a convert as well. It's just what happens.

Glad you're so happy with it - I want to marry mine, and leave all my worldly belongings to it when I die :)

Cups really are that empowering aren't they? Unfortunately, some women have a tough time getting their body/cup to cooperate the first few months.

Fortunately for us, perseverance pays off! ;)

I was one of those who had issues inserting, when I first started. Umm, yeah that's gone! I now happily insert it when my cramps start, so YAY! no more ruining underwear. My cunt loves it as well. It says, "Oh your not a tampon, Lets party!" DIVA CUPS are Amazing!!

Hehehe, you sound like me after my first day! :D

I convinced my girlfriend. She wasn't huge on the idea, but she decided to give it a try. Now she feels much as the rest of us do (only she doesn't tell people about it that much because she's a bit shy, hehe).

Yup..word sister. I just finished my first cycle and it was awesome..that's right I had an awesome mess free, virtually pain free period.

The world needs to know!
