So not only did I get my period a week early for some reason(which NEVER happens) but it turns out I have an infection(bv- bacterial vaginosis)so I can't use my Diva cup this cycle and even though I still use pads and alternate them with my cup since i'm still in the learning curve I MISS my cup soooo much, it was awesome to be able to put it in on a heavy day and pretty much forget about it. lol So I was just wondering, has anyone else not been able to use their cup at some point and realized how much you love it?

Oh, I know the feeling. I have in the past had to battle recurring yeast (finally figured out due to glycerin in condom lube, bleh!). Gave the cup a rest while sorting that all out. I *so* hated having to rely on pads during that time. Once I was healed, I was never so happy to get my period, knowing I could use my cup again.

Sending healing vibes your way for your smooth and quick recovery. BV is a beast, but you can beat it. And the Diva will be patiently waiting for you when you're back to normal again.

Thanks! :) I've had it before 2 or 3 years ago and I find it more annoying than anything so I'll be thrilled when i'm done with my antibiotic. Figuring out I had it again was interesting though, I didn't think i'd be getting a pelvic exam with a speculum for a few more years atleast(i'm 17). lol Also when my doctor was done I asked him how high my cervix was(since I've been looking at different cups to try after I get past the learning curve) and he was surprised I asked it seemed and he said I had him on that one, that he'd say it was "average height for a girl my age". lol

Yes, yeast infection also from glycerin in lube! I really hated having to use pads, even though they were cloth.

Haha, bet no one has asked your doctor that before!

He's a pediatrician so I bet your right! lol

Oh, yeah! But remember, there's no age limit for medical curiosity, especially about your own body. Good for you for asking! Even my 10 and 13 year old boys love to ask their pedi some questions that are quite surprisingly mature. But a good doctor always answers every question. Awesome!

Thanks! :) And yeah that's how I am, I love asking a ton of questions every time I go, I'm just super curious! lol

I can definitely relate! I went camping a while ago and figured "Oh hey, my period DEFINITELY won't be 2 weeks early!". Seeing as I've only been having them for a couple of years they obviously didn't want to become regular yet. I took some pads but didn't expect to use them. Ohgod. It was horrendous. The pain, the smell, the EVERYTHING! As soon as I got home I cleaned my cup and put it in. 3 days of being deprived of my menstrual cup when I desperately needed it made me feel very, very, very happy to have it back.
