(no subject)

I just wanted to thank the founders of this community. I got a Diva Cup yesterday. Despite not menstrating, I decided to try it anyway. It hurt a lot. I couldn't get it in. This caused panic. Looking at the comments for some recent entries in this community about the same problem, however, made me feel much better. I'm definitely going to try some of the tips. So thank you, community. You really helped me!


Ok, since I've established that folks can see my post... ;)
I've been noticing irritation from my Keeper... not immediately, but by the end of my cycle, I'll feel sore and, well, irritated, and I'm wondering if it's possible to have a slight enough latex allergy that after a week of constant contact one would notice a response, but not after say, wearing latex gloves for ten minutes or wearing a bandaid, etc. Any suggestions would be nice... That, and if anyone has any success stories of the switch-over from Keepers to Divas, feel free to share!
