Okay, I'm sold!

I'm halfway through my first cycle using my Divacup, and I am officially a convert!

Yesterday was my heaviest flow day; I would overflow an overnight pad in 2 hours, or more recently, go through a super-plus tampon in 3 hours. I emptied my cup every 6 hours, and that was mostly paranoia - it wasn't quite half full yet. Today I would need a new super tampon every 3 hours; the cup was only half full after 8 hours. And absolutely no leaks, even overnight. I'm calling it a win.

I agonized over whether to buy a cup or not; $30 and up is a lot of money for me. I finally went for it when I realized that if I could make it work it would pay for itself in 3 months; money saved by not having to stockpile tampons. I wish I'd had one of these years ago; it would've saved me so many tears of frustration and upset, not to mention worry about whether I would be able to buy enough each month...

I'd also like to say how thankful I am for this community; without the comprehensive info and advice gathered here, I probably would've been too discouraged to even try. So thanks, everybody!
