Diva Cup....

Anonymous

Okay so I have the diva cup and here is my experience thus far:

Pros:

1.Saves money on tampons/pads in the long run.

2. No chemical stuff.


CONS:

1. I suck at putting it in. You are supposed to do this bend then twist thing and it is really hard for me to do. The damn thing takes forever to open up.

2. You have to get very up close and personal with your anatomy. This can result in a messy hand.

3. I teach and have to use a public restroom at school during my workday. Still haven't figured out a workable approach to washing the thing at work. I mean, what if one of my students walked in while I was washing my Diva cup in the sink.



Anyone have any super valuable insight about my cons list?

You are just washing them and not boiling them? Seems unsanitary. I use the instead soft cups. The arent reusable but i love them. :)

The instructions say to wash it.... they sell a wash for it or you can use soap and water...

Oh ok. I know some that boil them to decontaminate. How many do you have?

One. It was $24 and the instructions say you can just continue to wash it inbetween insertions....

I love Soft Cups. :) They are so comfy compared to tampons!

They are awesome and quite cheap. I hate that feeling of leakage dripping on your pad when you stand up, i don't feel that with the cup.
