What do YOU think? Would you stop menstruating indefinitely - for years, maybe - if you could start up again easily if you wanted a child? Put your comments with the ones below. No need to add your name or address, but writing your age might give a hint of generational differences, and it would be informative to give your nationality or part of the country.

My first experience with the DivaCup

Hi! I just joined. Been looking at getting a cup (any) for about a year now. Read lots of stuff about them. I finally took the plunge and ordered a DivaCup, which arrived yesterday. I did a dryrun in the shower (ah, uh!) and it sat fine. I think it may need to be trimmed or pushed up higher, but I'll work on that when I get more experience. As it was, the tip actually protruded outside. Not sure if that's good, but otherwise it didn't bother me at all. Feels like a good dry-run.

Taking it out, I had some difficulty, it seemed to suck vacuum, and didn't want to come out. I reread the instructions and will try to do it with more tilting and squeezing next time. About one week till my period, so I'll be very curious to see!!
