I really wish I had known of the Diva Cup (or ANY menstrual cup, for that matter) years ago. It would have saved me lots of stress and anxiety. I no longer fear my period, but look at it as something amazing that happens in my body. I've become more aware of myself, my cycle. The things that make me a woman.
With that, my second period with the Diva has been 100% successful. It wasn't difficult at all for me last cycle either, but there was an adjustment period of figuring out what was going on, and how to do this thing. Now it's lovely. I rave about my cup all the time. My husband is really tired of hearing about it. :)
