What menstrual cup do you prefer?

I don't like pads or I would make some mama cloth. I hate buying tampons, and my flows are so light I have to remove the tampons before they are full. My cycle has yet to come back after my last birth, due to nursing (11.5 months postpartum). I would love to have it on hand for that first cycle.

Thank you so much for all your help!

DivaCup, Mooncup, LadyCup, Femmecup, Miacup or other

  • I own a Diva and a I really, really like it. Sadly my body does not. I only wear it about 2 of my 5 days or else I'll get a UTI (no matter how clean it is)

  • I love my Diva Cup. I haven't used any other brand to compare, though. But I'll warn you that the Diva is much longer than other cups.

  • hibbingmom, you may like Instead. It is a one time use menstrual cup. You may also need to start a high dose of probiotics to fend off UTIs. Thanks for the reply!

  • I have a Diva cup but I can't seem to get the hang of how to get it in without leaks...
