just got this message on myspace from a girl i knew in college... we weren't close, but had many mutual friends. what a nice christmas present :)
hey there. i saw your profile from brads page... hope you don't mind that i asked for an add.
you totally rocked my world by suggesting the diva cup @ one of the U's feminist fairs. i am eternally thankful!
so, i love my divacup. insetion is now a snap, no more leaking or surprise orgasms or poking from the stem (i cut it off) or anything else. however, i do have two questions still:
1. is there a way to make removal easier? mine rides really far up and it's hard for me to reach, let alone grasp with two fingers (since i don't have the stem, and when i go to pinch it i feel really icky and scared like i'm about to pinch my cervix (i feel like it's inside or right above the cup). i've tried the ssquatting and bearing down, etc., and those things all help, and its not that big of a deal, because i always get it out, i'm just wondering if there's an easier way? like some way for me to tie a string to it or something?
2. when you guys boil yours, how long do you let it sit in the boiling water for?
So I had to go back to my home in New Jersey for the holiday break, and i cursed myself almost as soon as i got there because i forgot my divacup back at school.
I was, therefore, forced to endure the horror of tampons.
But, the thing is that the tampons didn't really bother me during my period, but i had to relive that the horribly uncomfortable itchy vag after my period that i endured while using tampons and has since gone away.
I did NOT miss it at all.
So i am once again singing the praises of my cup since this little trip into tampon land has reminded me of what i had to go through.
SO horray for cups!
Oh i had another unrelated question, I know that a few women here are on Nuva ring and i wanted to ask them if they've ever had any trouble with the ring staying comfortably in their vag. (it's been a problem of mine for like the past two cycles, very annoying).
