*This post will be talking about a woman's menstrual cycle so if you are uncomfortable reading about the subject then I would not read this post.
I have never been a big fan of menstrual pads or tampon products for my menstrual cycles. Pads always caused me to break out in rashes no matter which brand I used and tampons just weirded me out because I really had no idea what I was inserting into myself. I am sure that I am not the only woman weirded out by tampons either. Since I have been trying to go greener with my family I decided I needed to find something else to use for my menstrual cycle other then menstrual pads or tampons. I thought about cloth pads but wasn't to wild about the thought of throwing them in my washer. I was excited when I started to see some of my fellow blogging friends writing about the DivaCup and I was instantly curious about it.
Have you ever…
- co-opted toilet paper from a public washroom as a temporary measure
- planned a vacation around your period
- avoided white pants for that one 'special' week of the month
- done a supplies hand-off with a girlfriend while the dates weren't looking
- cautiously tucked the telltale string into your bikini
- accidentally pulled a mystery object from your purse in front of a curious male audience
- scuttled to the washroom to survey the leak damage after a sudden 'surge'
- clogged your toilet with "flushable" feminine products
- left a party with a jacket tied around your waist...?
I know that I can personally answer YES to almost all the questions listed above how about you? Well I am so happy that I no longer worry about any of the questions above thanks to the DivaCup. The DivaCup is a non-absorbent menstrual cup that simply collects the menstrual flow. It is inserted in the vagina and sits at the lower base of the vaginal canal. It is worn internally, yet because it is soft and smooth, it cannot be felt nor will it leak when inserted properly. When I first inserted the DivaCup I was worried that it would slip out or that I would feel it and neither happened. I really like that the DivaCup can be worn for up to 12 hours before emptying, washing and reinserting for use for another 12 hours. It can be used for light or moderate flows and is emptied more often to accommodate heavy flows. Perfect for overnight use so no worrying about leaking and having to change your bed sheets. I also like that the DivaCup is the most clean and convenient method of feminine hygiene protection. There is No need to touch the flow. It is worn low in the vagina, not near the cervix, so it is easy to remove, and there is No mess!
Do you play sports and are always worried when it's time for your menstrual cycle? The DivaCup ends the hassles with unreliable disposables in endless absorbencies, shapes and styles. It is perfect for all activities – giving you true freedom without the worry, guessing and unreliability that disposable feminine hygiene products pose. The DivaCup’s expert, proprietary, patent-pending features make it comfortable and assures ease of use and reliability. Perfect for traveling, running, biking, hiking, dancing, camping, swimming, diving, scuba, yoga, extreme sports and more...
The DivaCup is also:

I must say that I rave about the DivaCup to all my friends now that do not know about it! I will not go back to pads or tampons now for my menstrual cycles.
