Is the Diva Cup right for me?

             First off, I would like to thank all you ladies for joining this community and being confident and open enough to freely talk about your periods with the world. I have no trouble talking about my period, but I know that some women are just so uncomfortable with the topic, so thanks girls! Anyway, (and just a disclaimer: this post gets pretty personal/suggestive, so i suggest you stop reading if you think you may be offended) I have a question for those of you who are experienced Diva Cup users. By the way, I commend any menstrual cup users! I feel like they are very poorly received by most women. My friends thought it was a gross idea when I told them I thinking of buying one. So any of you who took the plunge, whether it be for the environmental or the cost issue, I salute you!!! Ha back to my question, I am 18 and I am a virgin. I plan to wait to have sex, but I have used a toy before; said toy was approx 5 inches. Therefore I assume that I have broken my hymen, but I could be wrong. (Like I said, suggestive material) I have a wider frame and I have been using super plus/ultra tampons for a while. So, (ha sorry, I hope you are still listening) do you think I could handle the almighty Diva Cup? I know they are the largest of the cups and I don't want to waste $30 on something I can't use. Please give your most honest opinions. Thanks so much!


********Thanks so much for all your advice! It was really helpful. I just want your opinions on one last thing. I am a big fan of comfort, the soft/pliable material and the capacity of the Diva were the main reasons that it was my top runner. But now after finding my cervix, approx 2 inches, i worry that it will be too long. Are the Ladycup and the large Meluna good choices? I know that they are both shorter in length in comparison to the Diva. However, I really want something comfortable and soft, and I heard that the Meluna has a harder rim. Can you give me your opinions on the comfort of the Meluna and the Ladycup? Are they silicone like the Diva, can they be boiled?********

cant get my mooncup in, at all

 
i'm new to this and to cups by here goes, I got my first cup today - mooncup B - and it looks HUGE! I have tried all morning to get it in but it definatley won't go. C fold and punch down are far to big, I'm only 17 and seem to be verrrrrrrrrrry tight down there, I can only just get a tampon in with a struggle. Any tips or advice on trying this again would be appreciated caus it looks like I'll be sticking to my tampon fights every month now xxx

Sex with Instead


I just love my Instead Soft Cup! I've been using it for about a year and wanted to know if you can use them during sex. My bf is smaller than average so and never hits my cervix. Whew! Anyway, I have a couple of questions: Can your partner feel it inside? Have you ever told him you were wearing one? How many times have you used it sucessfully? I want to try this out with him but I'm looking for some feedback on this topic. Thanks...Suzi

Hey guys.

I ordered a small Yuuki cup back in March (16th, I think) and it didn't arrive yet. It's been about three weeks and I ordered directly from the company, so, does it always take them so long? I was under the impression that ordering from yuuki.cz would be the fastest way, but now I don't really know what to think anymore.
I live in Austria, which is why I thought it would be here rather quickly... But anyway, I received a confirmation email that they will check out my order and that's about it.
Anyone know what could be going on?

Need a cup for light days

I have been using a cup for about four months and love it. I have a large Yuuki, which is my favorite. The pronounced rim of the large Lunette and UK MoonCup irritated my urethra.

I'm looking for a cup that is shorter for my lighter days. It seems my cervix moves down when my period lightens and the larger cup isn't as comfortable.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a smaller cup with a flexible rim that I could get shipped to the US? Thanks.
