Diva Cup

I searched all over for information but I couldn't find what I was looking for so I hope this helps someone out there. I'm 25, married and don't have any kids. I have a SUPER heavy flow, I would go through Ultra Absorbency tampons in 1-2 hours and my periods usually lasted 7 days, basically it was hell. I wanted to find a cup that would fit but that would hold enough to make my purchase worth while. I was almost set on the Lunette but Drugstore.com had a special on Diva Cups and it even came with some Diva Wash for free.

Well, I've been using it for three months now and I really like it. The first month there was some messiness but my period only lasted 4 days (a record). My second period only lasted 5 and I'm currently on my third period since owning the Diva Cup. Today is day 4 but I almost didn't even use the cup today because there was hardly anything there when I got up this morning. On day 2 of my period this month (day 2 and 3 are my heaviest flows) I had to change it three times, twice during the day and then right before I went to bed. Yesterday, Day 3, I only changed it in the morning when I woke up and before I went to bed. Then like I said there was hardly anything there when I got up this morning.

Going in, it is really easy and I usually have zero problems, coming out ...well that has taken some getting used to and some new techniques. I definitely had to get more comfortable around my lady parts and get to know it better? (haha for lack of better words). I feel like I could use a softer cup and maybe that wouldn't be as difficult to remove as the Diva Cup? Another note, I read that the Diva cup is one of the longest ones on the market but it goes way up and outta sight so I would be hesitant to get something even shorter.

(sorry for any grammer/spelling mistakes I am just off today)
