I have been investigating the possibilities for alternative menstrual products for 2 months now. I have become completely fed up with tampons, and am determined to be more environmentally conscious across the board. I had recently decided to get The Keeper, but I have not yet made the plunge. After reading through much of what you all have to say about it, I am now uncertain whether I should go for the DivaCup or The Keeper. From what I've read through in this community so far, many seem to be more for the DivaCup. I'd love some input/advice. Also, if anyone could recommend the best website to order from (including organic cotton pads), I'd be most appreciative.
Thank you in advance.
Okay. I took my DivaCup out in the shower, like usual. I grabbed it the same way. But it seemed the suction was stronger than usual. Rinsed it, had my shower. Put it back in.
Sat down at the computer. Felt like I needed to to pee and poop, felt the base poking me (stem is cut off). Went to the toilet. Peed a tiny amount, nothing else. Felt around for where the cup was. Near the entrance, bright blood on my finger. So I pushed it in a little further (like I've also done before). And all of a sudden, PAIN up my right side. I think I popped an ovary or something (just kidding).
I just took out the cup (lots of suction again, the holes are clean!) and have a pad on for now. I'll try again in the morning.
Anyone have an idea of what might be up?
