    I have a lady cup…it’s based in Europe. I love it so much. It fits perfectly and does not leak unless it’s full. I’ve tried the diva cup and I hated it. It leaked all the time and slipped out. The lady cup comes in pretty colors and in two sizes. It takes about a month to get it in the mail if your in the US. I use menstrual cups because I hated tampons and pads and they always gave me bladder infections. When my girls start their periods…they will be using menstrual cups too.

    I’ve been using the Diva Cup for about a year and a half. Love love love. I’ve saved so much money. It took a couple of days for me to get the hang of insertion, and so there was some leakage, but now it’s pretty much second nature. Way more comfortable than tampons, and it feels cleaner, too. I boil mine every month and wash with soap and water when I empty it (which is usually in the shower).

    I just started my third cycle with my Diva cup. Honestly it’s been pretty awesome. I have ruined less pairs of undies with the cup, tampons were awful for that. 

    I still leak a bit, but it’s usually always user error. Like oh shit, I forgot to make sure it actually sealed correctly, or oh shit I didn’t put it in the correct angle. I’m still learning but it’s been a great experience so far.

    Also, I have hated my life a lot less when I’m on my period now. This morning I was kind of like “oh hello!”, insert Diva Cup, go on my merry effing way. lol

    I have used a Diva Cup for the past 7 (yes, seven) years, and have recently used a new cup as I received it for $1 for a review on Amazon (Anigan Evacup).  I love menstrual cups, and found that moving from the Diva to the Eva has been a breeze.

    Will never go back to tampons or pads!

    I can’t wait to use mine next week!  A few months ago I had switched to sponges.  I loved them, but they didn’t hold up extremely well.  You get over the “gross-ness” of it pretty quickly and you’ll realize how much of a waste tampons are!

    My first cup was a Keeper, but for the past two years I’ve had a Diva Cup.  Menstrual cups are one of the greatest inventions ever.  My period is sort of average with days 2 and 3 being the heaviest, but even then I usually insert it in the morning and don’t bother with it until I get home in the afternoon. 

      They are a bit tricky to learn to insert those first few times, but once I got the hang of it there was absolutely no turning back.  At first emptying and cleaning it seemed a bit gross, but I soon got over that.  By comparison, tampons are just plain dumb.  The last of the box of OB that I had from years ago I keep in my desk at work . . . just in case, but I haven’t used one in years.

    If you haven’t tried one, do it.  You won’t be sorry.
