Cup at Choir Camp

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.

Happy Period.

(no subject)

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.
