  • I use Diva Cup too! LOVE it! Anon. It's a flexible silicone cup that comes in 2 sizes (1 for women who are older or have given birth and 1 for younger women who haven't). You fold it in half and it goes inside the vagina like a tampon. You can't feel it and it doesn't leak at all if inserted correctly. It keeps your PH levels normal and is more sanitary than tampons with no risk of TSS. It can stay in almost all day depending on how heavy your flow. You simply wash it well with soap and water in between uses. You only have to buy 1 and you reuse it so it really cuts down on the cost of tampons or pads.

  • I'd rather tampons, but I have to use pads. Tampons are really painful for me and seem to make my cramps worse. Plus, I have a really light flow.

  • Pads. I am 28yrs old and haven't wore a tampon a day of my life. Pretty sad uh?

  • Neither... Pads are NASTY. I flow too heavy even for super Plus/Ultra tampons. Diva Cup for me!
