LadiesWell decided to try something different out, since I got a big irritation to traditional pads/tampons. So I went out and got one of those Diva Cups to give them a go, and see what it could do for me. Let me tell you it takes time to use one of these things when I first tried it I panicked, and it makes it so much harder to use one. So I gave me some time and then tried again, and it worked and it was something to get used to. When I went to remove it I heard doing it in the shower was the best way to remove it, and it still gave me some troubles but once I broke the seal it was simple to remove. So with every period I get, I'm at least going to keep trying, even if it's just for a day or so.
Things you need to know :- Take out in the shower it's a lot easier and if blood creeps you out at least your in the shower.
- Get the Diva wash so you can clean it
- Don't worry it's not stuck up there even though it's pretty far up there.
- Little hard to get used to it's probably going to take a few periods to get it down, to where I'm comfortable.
