A friend of mine recently tried the Diva Cup and really liked it. I've been curious about them for a while now, so I thought, what the heck, let's give it a shot. Of course, it came in the mail just after I'd finished for the month, so I'd have to wait til the next month to try it out. I was actually surprised at how small it was b/c for some reason it looks bigger in the pictures (they need to put something next to it, so you can see the relative size).

I have a VERY regular period, so I decided to put it in before I actually started bleeding. It was a little difficult to get to "pop open" with the C-fold, I thought. Of course, for once, I actually didn't start until the next day, *sigh*. But I tried it again using the punch-down fold, and it worked like a charm. It took no longer to place than a tampon would! I went running just after, actually, and didn't even notice it. Had my 1st overnight, which was great! I used a back up pad, just in case, but that was completely unnecessary. So yeah, I'm a convert now. :-)

yay! I just finished up my 3rd cycle with my divacup, and I like it lots, too =)

I also was surprised that it was so small! I was picturing it larger, too.

That's interesting - I could never get the punchdown to work, but the C-fold works like a charm for me. :) It amazes me how different bodies can be!
