This week I've been working at my alum HS choir camp. It has been fun. My friend, the choreographer, and I thought up exercises for them and I even did it with them. So my Divacup withstood the exercising... The moving around.... And a trip to the beach. Granted I didn't drink that much water so I didn't have to pee but yea, the whole day, since 7:00 am until 11:50 pm, my cup has been a-okay! Yay, it is the end of my cycle. I only have a little bit of dark brownish uterus stuff in the cup, which is fine by me.
I love my cup and have been using it for 7 months, but yesterday was just not the day for me.
I woke up with a surprise period due to accidentally messing up my birth control. As always, I wake up 10 minutes before I have to leave the house. So I grab my cup and go to do a quick insertion. I fold it up, put it in, and go pee. Unfortunately, little did I know I peed too quickly, before the cup fully opened. I notice the cup poking me. When I'm done peeing, I squat down to fix it, and out pops the cup, unfolds, and splats blood all over me and my entire bathroom (that I just extensively cleaned the night before).
My boyfriend was in the living room cracking up at all the obscenities he heard coming from the bathroom as I shouted "I'm having a disaster, you might want to stay out of the bathroom for the next few minutes..." while washing blood off the walls.
Sorry cup, I love you, but you're going back on the shelf for the day.
