Ladies, I just finished my first period with my new DivaCup. I'm obsessed. It's pretty much the best thing ever.

A few things I'm going to do next time:

1. Not empty it so much! I emptied it maybe 4 or 5 times a day because I didn't really know what I was dealing with. Emptying it so much caused a little irritation in the vajayjay which I know I can avoid. I just did it because I didn't know how much I was bleeding, I wanted to practice, etc.

2. Not clean it so much! I washed it with cetaphil every time I took it out. I gather this is not necessary. I just wanted to be the very best Diva owner ever! I'm over it.

3. Buy cloth pads!! I'm so into the idea of having NO trash and having something I can reuse, today I bought some Pandora Pads (just panty liner ones) for those light days, newbie leakage, etc.

Random thought: I didn't boil mine, I just used hydrogen peroxide, but in the memories there's some debate about boiling and discoloration. Do you think maybe the discoloration could be caused by the various metals/chemicals from water in different regions? That's kind of why I didn't do it...we have rust here. I gather DivaCups and rust don't mix.

It's been the best. Thanks to everyone in this community for making my Diva dreams come true!!
