We were talking about this today at work after I brought up an older thread on people either flushing tampons or putting them in the trash. We deal with environmental health and stuff it was related to our meeting on bathroom facilities at a location we manage, thankfully all ladies. It turns out that most of the ladies use mentrual cups which kinda shocked me because none of my friends have even heard of them. Well it appears everyone pretty much has a different favorite or had tried a few before finding the one that worked for them. I’m in need of another one after moving and I have no clue in what box it is but I wasnt completely happy with what I had.
Ladies what are your recommendations or favoirte menstrual cup? Any ladies out there will killer flow I would love to know what you love especially!

@waitingforthering2: I haven’t tried anything else, but I like SoftCup. Have been thinking about getting something that’s more reusable, though.

I’ve only tried the Diva Cup, and I love it. It was tricky to use my first cycle using it, but I haven’t had a problem with it since.
I hope I never have to go back to using tampons or pads!

@jackieee: I know ive heard a lot about diva cup on here but some of the ladies were just really into the lunette and others just couldnt find anything better than the soft cup

My sister uses Diva Cup and swears by it. I’ve been meaning to try it for a while but always forget to pick one up

I don’t mean to threadjack, but I wonder if anyone here who had a baby had to get a different style or size after giving birth. Can anyone advise?

I tried the Keeper and it didn’t work for me – leaked a lot. I now use the Diva Cup and it is wonderful.
I sometimes use Instead Soft Cup and it is OK for a brief time if we want to have sex (this is the cup that you can wear during sex), but for longer wear I get a lot of leaking with it.
@jackieee: Some of the cups come in multiple sizes, specifying to use one or the other if you’ve given birth or not, and/or by age. I think Diva and Keeper both do.

@jackieee: It is recommanded to get size 2 for women who had a child. But I would personally try size 1 since you already have it, if you don’t have leakage or discomfort, then the size is still okay.
The other thing recommanded is to go up a size after age 30. I don’t know, maybe I’m plain ignorant, but what happens to my vagina at age 30 ? (this is a serious question).
As long as my size will fit okay, I would not change it.

Oh and I use DivaCup ! Although, it’s the only cup available in my area, I haven’t tried another brand.

SoftCup, but mostly because I don’t want to deal with washing/sterilizing it!

I have a Divacup. I got that because it seemed to be more popular than others and it worked for me so I had no reason to try anything else out.
@jackieee: I’m going to try out the size 1 first and if I need a new one I’ll get the larger size. So bizarre though…size 2 is also for ladies “over 30,” like your vagina magically enlarges at 30 or something!! I find that really bizarre and laughable! There is a really good Amazon review about it. I certainly wouldn’t get a size 2 just because I was over 30!

@NauticalDisaster: I want to try the DivaCup, but I live in mortal fear that:
A: I won’t be able to get it in right and while I’m at work, I’ll like…laugh or cough or something and a blood filled cup is going to shoot out, roll down my pant leg and onto the floor in front of the entire office.
B: I won’t be able to get the thing out and will have to call in reinforcements….which, I don’t have anyone I actually LIKE that much…not even my husband….no one I could ask to help me remove an errant mestrual cup that is wedged in my vag….so I’ll be one of those women in the ER…who has something…stuck.

I’ve been dying to try menstrual cups but I have enough issues with tampons so I didn’t want to waste the money to try them.
Might sound like an odd question and TMI because my anatomy is pretty rare but.. does anybody know if a menstrual cup can still be used if you have a partial vaginal septum? (not a full-length septum)
I don’t know how or where they sit/settle in up there..
