Girl talk: Do any of you use a Diva Cup? Are you a fan? I’m thinking of doing the switch — I’m so sick of tampons!

  1. I’ve been using a diva cup for about ten years now and it’s a GAME CHANGER. No creating trash, no buying tampons all the time, no leaks, no strings. It’s comfortable enough that I don’t feel it and I’ve never had a leak. It’s especially good for the active/outdoor/traveling woman, but I really think any woman.

    My friend found that diva cup brand didn’t work that well for her so she tried one of the many other brands of menstrual cups and loves hers.

  2. I’ve been using the diva cup for about 5 years. I will never ever go back to tampons. The diva cup is superior to tampons in countless ways: more comfortable, more capacity, no leaking, cheaper in the long run. I can’t recommend it enough. And once you’ve got the hang of it it is not messy or gross, and most importantly it helps a woman to understand her body and cycle much better.

  3. I too have only positive things to say about the Diva Cup. Cost effective, comfortable, no leaks, no odours, and to me it feels so much cleaner than tampons or pads. I’ve used it for a year or so and I will never go back. Also, I’ve been using Nuva Ring for years now, and to me the inserting/removing the Diva Cup is like inserting/removing the ring.

  4. I know you’re already sold, but the Diva Cup is life-changing. I’ve talked several friends through the implementation process and for some, the learning curve was super short and for others (well, mostly me :) … it involved some panicking. Ignore the instructions about “rotating” it. Fold it, insert it, let it pop open and then gently wiggle it/tug it to ensure there’s a seal. Use liners, have some back up handy until you feel confident about it. When removing, remember that you have Kegel muscles and use them! I usually have to do a little pushing to get it to a point where I can grab it.

    Enjoy! It’s seriously one of the best things ever.

  5. That is the back of my head! I just discovered your blog and have been parusing your older articles. I was/am stunned when I scrolled down and saw this photo. Photographer Graeme Owsianski took this photo last March
