Are you a diva?

I was reading a blog yesterday about saving money, and the blogger suggested using the "Diva Cup" during your period to save money on tampons and pads.  I looked it up.  Unfortunately, I was correct in my assumption.  You catch your menstrual blood in a reusable cup.

1. I can't imagine ever being so hard up for cash that tampons are the thing that has to be cut from the budget.  I would literally sooner give up toothpaste or deodorant.

2. Who the hell feels like a diva while walking around with a diaphragm (let's be honest, that's exactly what it is!) full of blood in her vagina?  Who named this thing?


Have you ever or would you ever use a "diva cup"?

 No, that sounds disgusting.

I'm a diva because I don't use a Diva Cup.

I use the keeper which is a gum rubber menstrual cup, and I love it.

I've heard people talk about it. I personally would not use it.

It sounds too messy for me. And I'm not a personal fan of sticking my fingers inside me. I know a lot of women on here seem to like them though. But I have the Mirena and haven't had a period in 2 years!

Have you ever had an accident with it?  When I was reading about these, all I could think about was it getting dislodged.  It would be like 10 times worse than the 7th grade leak.

I had to use a pad as backup for the first two or three cycles as there is a bit of a learning curve; however, after that I've not had any issues.  If it is placed correctly and is the right size, it shouldn't be a problem.

I personally have no interest in using the diva cup, but I don't think it's any more gross than having a bloody stringed tissue up there. Periods suck.
