the coconut's on crack yo.

(no subject)

I am free, FREE from the evil tyrant of Tampon companies! I nolonger feel horrible thinking that being a girl means I must pollute the earth with all of the crap that comes with menstruating.

I've been using my DivaCup for a few days. I like it a lot, but I must say that I have a heck of a time getting it out. It tends to creep up kind of high and takes me a long time to actually get it out, but maybe it will get easier with time. I don't really get how to "break the seal" just by holding the bottom. I can barely get a decent grip on the bottom of it in the first place.

ah, well. I would rather wrestle with a divacup for a few extra minutes a day than to use a million tampons.

Diva help - vag pain and slippage

Today is the first day of my period. I've been using the Diva Cup intermittently for about 4 months - 1 day I'll use the Diva, the next just a reusable pad (which I absolutely love)!

Last cycle, i don't think I used my Diva at all. I used my Diva today, and I had it slip twice! Once while having a BM, I pushed the Diva out to the rim and had to insert it again. The second time I was just taking a piss and it slipped a little bit, just enough so that the stem and very bottom hung out of my vag. I pushed it back up but it still didn't feel comfy. So I decide to take it out and try again. It hurt so much! It was as if the opening of my vag was on fire.

I've never had anything like this happen before. The last time my vag and I weren't on speaking terms was over a year ago when I had an allergic reaction to the NuvaRing.

Help?
