No, I am not kidding. I have been using my Diva Cup since Monday, and I am a total convert. Yes, there are times when it is less than... um... well... sometimes it is "icky," but I think that is mostly because I am not used to seeing my "flow" in a cup like a shot of vodka or something. However, I must say I think I forgot to empty it yesterday, but when I did it this morning, there was still room available in the cup. When using tampons or a pad, it seemed like my flow was heavier, but it really just appeared to be that way.
Why have I decided to stick to the Diva?
- Environmental-- nothing to toss, resuable, all that good stuff.
- Extremely comfortable-- I actually forget that I have it in!
- No risk of TSS
- Easy insert, taking out
- Not nearly as messy as I had feared
- No more wet string!
- No leaking
