Shout out to the DivaCup!

Hey guys! I posted a while back about my struggles with my very first cup- a ladycup. Many of you suggested that I try the divacup since it is a bit longer. I decided to take the plunge and shelled out the cash for cup number two, and I have to say it was definitely a good move!

I'm working in Alaska this summer in a job that requires me to be on my feet a lot, and the last thing I want to be doing is worrying about my period. I started my period today and broke out that new DivaCup! 1000x better! I can reach it so easily and removal only takes like 2 minutes instead of the 30 or so struggling with the LadyCup!

Also fun story- my room mates wanted to go hiking after work. This DivaCup definitely got tested. Our short hike turned into a pretty rigorous trek up about halfway up a mountain! I was beyond thankful I didn't have to worry about tampons during that hike! So much less stress. Cramps were still miserable, but my first day is always my heaviest and worst for cramping. I can not imagine how awful it would have been to have to worry about tampons, especially since I wasn't expecting to climb a mountain, so I might not have brought extras!!! Thank you Divacup and thank you kind users for suggesting it! I am officially converted.
