before period starts?

When I'm not on BC, my period is rather erratic and will come either about when it's supposed to up up to two weeks later.  That leaves a lot of time to wonder if that wet stuff I feel is my normal discharge or blood.  I'm a former tampon user and have never ever taken to pads.  Can I insert the DivaCup now and just check it every so often or would it be best to wait until I see blood?  I know with tampons this is a big no-no (but I did anyway on days I knew I wouldn't be able to get a bathroom quickly,) but it doesn't seems like it would be with the DivaCup.  True?
