Questions for mamas who use the diva cup

Has anyone tried the diva cup? I am sick of pads and tampons and the diva cup interests me, but I am not sure… It also kinda creeps me out a little for some reason… Help!

I like the cup. It took a couple attempts to place it in to right point where it fit well, was comfortable and did not leak. I have more confidence wearing it.

There are tons of different ones you can try a lot of people love them I can’t use them due to my height and issues getting it in and out but a lot of people love them they have disks ones and cups

I personally have used the diva cup and I hated it. I think for women that have had children diva cup is not the right cup to use.
I use Luv ur Body cup and it’s the best for heavy flow.
At the end of the day you have to find the right fit for you… what works for you. …
all in all I haven’t bought a tampon in more than year. Best decision ever…

I have one and LOVE :cupid: it. I just change mine while in the shower for easy clean up. They can be a bit tricky to get the hang of, but if done right they are great! It makes swimming way more enjoyable, saves money, and is good for the planet. Try it! What do you have to lose?

My daughter’s are all big fans and I am thinking of converting

I like the cup. It took me awhile to get used to it, but less leaks than tampons and pads

I am not a mother but I used the cup and I liked it. I went swimming and had no leaks. But later I did have leaks because the normal cup didn’t hold enough for me. I just ordered the FLEX cup because it has a string like structure attached that makes it easier to get out.

I use it . I love it .

MAKE THE SWITCH!!
It’s soooo much better than pass and tampons if you can get it comfortable. (If not, try a smaller cup like June cup)

I’ve been using a cup for 15 years. You definitely need to be comfortable touching your own body and getting the hands…dirty. But it was a lifechanger for me. So much less waste and I haven’t had a yeast infection since. I only buy veeda pantiliners and use them for the first couple days.

I definitely am skeptical as well. How do you even pull that thing out without swishing blood all over yourself or spilling it everywhere?

I like it but it definitely was a transition. Sleeping with it is the best. I don’t wake up to leaks and no fear of tss

I prefer the flex disc but same idea. It’s been awesome!

I switched to a diva cup and I will never go back to anything else. It has a learning curve i feel like but it’s been amazing. I also have pretty bad pcos and its helped with those symptoms as well.

Ive used an eva cup for a few years but I could never really use it on my 2 heaviest day (the rest of the time works like magic) I decided to buy a diva cup in Hope’s it would work better for my heavy days but nope still leaked within and hour…any ideas why this happens with a cup?

I have used both The Diva Cup as well as Softdiscs. Diva Cup is better for long term wear. Neither option are fool proof so I suggest staying home the first time you try it or getting those period underwear to wear with it. With the Diva Cup after a few times wearing and inserting and removing it you really can feel when it’s not quite in right

Love my cup!!! Its easy to use and there is very little mess for those who are wondering. There is a little stem to grab onto to pull it out and then you can just pour the blood into the toilet. To insert it you have to put your thumb and pointer finger in your vagina but it’s simple. Can wear up to 12 hours if your flow is light enough. I usually can get away with 8 hours. I like to wear a panty liner just in case tho. My favorite thing about the cup is the fact that you save money on pads and tampons and the cup itself will last years. I think the package says 10 years. I’ve had mine for 4 years

I’ve been using the cup for 2 and 1/2 years years and I absolutely love it. I’ve never went back to tampons. The unfortunate thing is is you do have to wear a panty liner as sometimes the cup does leak but it’s absolutely worth it
