Quoting Pink Cracka ♥:" Sorry this may have been posted, I just read the OP & the first page.. the OP is great! It answers ... [snip!] ... to pull it? Like with a tampon you just tug on the string.. how do you pull this out without forcing the blood out of the top?"


Well, if you are sitting on the toilet, the cup is in the upright position...Basically just sit like you would with a tampon and pull straight down on the stem of the cup. You will sometimes feel the cup squeeze in and feel resistance, cause of the suction, but keep pulling intil its out...

Quoting amor♥:" There are some sites in the OP...BUt shopping around is probably best to find the cheapest."

The cheapest I've found was $23.... I want one, in a BAD way! but my husband is skeptical, he thinks I'm going to spill blood everywhere trying to take it out...
But.... I will get one, eventually! lol!
I just started my period & I am SOOO wishing I had one right now.... I hate pads & tampons... with a passion. :twisted:

Tell him to get over it, its your body!

Seriously though, there is about a .0000000001 chance of that happening anyways

He just doesn't want to spend the money & then have me not like it.... it happens a lot... :oops:
I'm getting one, either way! lol! he just didn't see how it would be cleaner.... I like the idea of being more "green" though!! :D
I might buy one today since he gets paid! I can't wait to try it out!!
Thank you for posting this! I never even heard of it, I heard of the instead but didn't hear much good about those....

3. How big is the Diva Cup?

Here is a visual for you. The DivaCup is all the way to the left, the Instead cup is in the middle and all the way to the right is a standard deck of cards.

This may have been asked but I don't really have the time to read through 16 pages :oops:



Can you use the diva cup with an IUD? Someone said something about it maybe tugging the strings to your IUD and moving it?



Also, I've read a lot of reviews on amazon & drugstore.com of people saying they couldn't get it back out after they used it. Has anyone else had that problem?

Can I use this for PP bleeding? I'm currently pregnant right now and I would like to switch to cloth pads and the DC after the baby. I told my DF about it and he thinks it's gross when he asked me how do I get rid of the blood and clean it... lol I don't care. I found them at a store near me where I also purchase my baby's cloth diapers so I'm happy about that.

THANK YOU FOR THIS! I used an Instead Soft cup today and it hurts..I can't seem to get it right so it doesn't hurt. It just feels so effin wide, it's killing me.



The Diva cup is smaller (and your picture shows this well) and I know it'll fit better. I'm going to buy one.

Bumping this up, because now that Ive had to wear a tampon (my cup went missing since last week), Im all crampy, changing this tampon more and generally just more miserable with tampons!!! Ugh!
