two words: diva cup

Yep... I'm going there.

Since I was pregnant for close to a year I'm starting to have my period again and I can't help but imagine life with a diva cup. lol

I'm laughing because when I mentioned the words "diva cup" in a female conversation a few months back people thought I was about to dish about some sexual device.  I laughed for probably five minutes before I could finally explain it.

Never heard of one?  Basically it's a silicone cup that is inserted somewhat like a tampon, you basically wear it all day long, and at the end of the day, dump out the contents, boil it and wear it again.

It holds the liquid and somehow suctions inside of you so no leaks happen.  It's suppose to be healthier for you and of course... another green solution.  I think the cup is good for one year before needing replaced but don't quote me on that, it's been awhile since I read the fine print.

It's also much cheaper than tampons and pads for a year, basically I've had two periods since Jude was born and I've spent probably $40 on products... so I could have already bought one and saved myself lots of money.

Has anyone used or tried it?  I'm tempted. Ha!
Hey, even Target sells it!

  1. i have heard of the diva cup. i haven't tried it but it does sound pretty awesome. i'm not a huge fan of tampons bc of my sometimes heavy a** flow (tmi, sorry). but since i'm already going the tmi route - our fertility dr had suggested we try the softcups *kinda similar to diva cups* years ago to help keep the swimmies inside longer. that was not so romantic and fun...but we had lots of laughs in the process.
    lots of luck, olivia!
    hope you're having a great week! <3<3<3

    1. Since Jude was born, I have a heavy flow too... so that's the other reason I'm a bit curious about the diva cup. I had to wear tampons and pads together, so annoying. I use to love my tampons!

  3. I have one, and absolutely love it. There's no going back to tampons. A couple bits of advice, don't expect it to work perfectly the first time. It took a few tries for me to get it positioned correctly. Also, there are many different ways to fold it for insertion... Just search online for different folds. :) it's kind of like oragami! It amazing for nighttime use, no more messes to clean up in the am (tmi?). It is definitely worth it!!!
