Yeah, but it also soaks up all the good stuff in the vagina, not just the blood. The cup doesn't interfere with anything, it just sits there. lol

Quoting Kayla [:)]♥:" I have a diva cup, but it's a bit of a pain to have in during lighter flows... What cup could I get that ... [snip!] ... will it take for me to get used to the diva cup? It's not too bad at all, but it feels weird having something in there. lol"


I own a diva cup but haven't used it in over a year. I found if you insert it on the wrong angle, it will be uncomfortable. Maybe you just need to practice more? lol

And not only is the cup a healthy choice compared to tampons, it's saves you money, is better for the environment, plus you only need one. Tampons are a pain.

It does feel oddly placed in there, I'll have to take it out and try it again.

you don't need to go in and fish it out, it's inside but pretty much right there. It also has a tail you can grab to get a better hold on it

IDK im curious, because i hate tampons and pads (tampons dry me out, and pads feel like a diaper), so im going to read about it and maybe try.

You should give it a try! It's really not as bad as people think.

I bought mine from london drugs. there are smaller and softer cups you can get, though.
