my diva cup came in the mail today!!
i've never in my life been this excited to receive something to collect my crotch blood in.
sorry to all the boys on my friends list.
it's healthier than using tampons, there's no risk of toxic shock, no foreign bacteria introduced, no oxidized blood (and therefore not as much smell), no risk of exposure to dioxins (a side product of bleaching the rayon and cotton in tampons).
and it doesn't leak nor create a lot of waste, as it's reusable. and it's cheaper than buying other sanitary products, yay for saving money!
the diva cup doesn't fit as far up inside as the instead cups, just for the record, so you can't have sex with them in. i've only heard how much of a hassle and how messy the insteads are, or i would have tried those first. i think i still might pick up a box, just in case.
and yeah, boys are pussies. i'm greatly disappointed in damn near all of them.
I have a Keeper and I love it. I recommend it to all my friends. Most think I'm crazy/gross, but I've converted a few.
It's kind of hard to get used to. Just... be careful when you're taking it out. I don't think I have to explain any further. Really, though, I love mine and I'm sure you'll love yours, too.
the diva cup gets a firmer seal than the keeper, i hear. i've already tried practicing and i've felt the wrath of the suction, i'm scared because of the amount i have to squeeze it to release the seal that it'll be... messy.
