The Diva Cup is convenient, saves you money and is good for the environment. What’s not to love? … Oh, what is it exactly? If you are not familiar with the Menstrual Diva Cup than I suggest you read on because the Diva Cup is the best thing that has ever happened to my period. I LOVE it.
The Diva Cup is inserted into the vagina and sits at the lower base of the vaginal canal. Oh, did I mention this blog is for FEMALE EYES ONLY? It collects menstrual flow, you pull it out, empty it, clean it, and insert it again and again. Yes, you only need one! No more tampons ladies. No more spending endless amount of money on bleached material that absorbs our natural secretions and is debated to be safe. The Diva Cup is safe, affective and amazing. Spread the word and boycott the tampon.
Initially it is a bit of an investment at $40. But you can use it for years, so if you do the math, you save big bucks. It is comfortable and you can wear it for up to 12 hours. You can swim, you can sleep.
You just have to make sure you insert it properly. Until you get use it, wear a pad because it will leak if it is not placed open over the cervix. Like anything, it takes practice, but once you get it, you will never look back. I assure you, it will make your period less of a hassle.
Please share with us your experiences with the Diva Cup. Do you have any questions of concerns? This is the place.
**Side Note: If you are prone to menstrual cramps, try Soothing Oil. Shake it, rub it over your belly and back and try some relaxing yoga postures like wide legged child pose and sleeping swan. I do this all in bed under the covers, diva cup inserted. Not a worry in the world. Happy Period!!
