How can I convince my mom?! I'm desperate!

 I've tried everything! The first (and second and third time) I asked her, she flat out laughed in my face. I've showed her the PDF file showing FDA approval, ob/gyn journals on the divacup, told her that pads and tampons have bleach and chlorine in them, told her they were cheaper and the long run and environmentally friendly, showed her success stories, the Divacup website, and even BEGGED. She still thinks that they are extremely unsanitary and unhealthy. I'm 16 years old, and it should be my decision. I don't want to go agiaist what she says, so is there ANYTHING else I can try?  I've been asking for over 3 months, and I'm tempted to go out and buy it.
