I Tried The Diva Cup

  • Published on Apr 9, 2017
  • The period videos are back! I tried "The Diva Cup", a reusable menstrual cup, for my period this month, and it was an ~exciting time~. Would you try a menstrual cup?
    I got my menstrual cup from Target, but you can find them in many places!

    In my attempt to be more green, my tried and true menstrual practice for the last 5 years is diva cup for days 1-3ish and then Thinx. Diva takes some time to get used to and obviously is a little more... involved, but once you get used to it the longevity of the cup is excellent. I was a tampon user for many years and I wouldn't go back. Thanks for sharing your menstruation adventures

    i looooveee using a menstrual cup, it literally changed my life. my period lasts 3 days and the second day is the wooorst. with the menstrual cup i dont have to worry at all if i leak or something. it took me like 3 periods to get used to it and understanding how i should put it in and out. i really recommend it bc u wont have to buy tampons or anything for the next at least 6 years, and of course is eco friendly. i use "organic cup"

  • Sal Shearer

    You're not supposed to take the cup out in an completely open state. The stem helps to pull it down so that you can squish the bottom.

    Hey this is an old video. Have I commented on this before? I have a diva cup, and I love it. I will say it does take some getting used to, but it works to me. It's great. kind of unfortunately my birth control stops my period, so I spent alot of money on it and don't really need it... all well.

  • MeMe Rice
    MeMe Rice 10 days ago +1

    The best way to use the cup is with a bidet. You can get a bidet from Amazon for $25 and rinse your cup like that while you are sitting and rinsing yourself. I have cut myself trying to change in the shower. I also use gloves (nitrile) now and they make it easy to grab the stem for day 2-4ish. If I am out in public and can't change my cup, then I double with period panties. My husband loves the cup and panties. Been using for 3yrs.

  • Melanie Espinoza
    Melanie Espinoza 10 days ago

    It says in the directions if you can't get it out by just pulling, you should bear down, like when you poop, and it will push it down and make it easier to grab. Yes, the pushing works. You know what else that much pushing for a week does?? Causes hemorrhoids. Yup. Period fun, then hemorrhoid fun.

  • AmmizL
    AmmizL 10 days ago

    I started using menstrual cups when I was in college and, no doubt, the most awkward thing is trying to change it in public. Doing the whole Captain Morgan + using muscles to push it out (read flexing the same muscles as going #2) was how I learned to change things in the shower.
    I also highly recommend, if you can't boil it, using hydrogen peroxide to clean it. Takes care of discoloration and sanitizes it at the same time!

    So, i bought mine two periods ago, and the first cycle that i had it, i was so worried about it, but the second cycle, i used it the entire cycle, and I fell so in love with the damn thing. Like i work processing merch for a retail store, and i didn't have to worry about leaks, and smells, or anything for my whole work shift. i was so quick to tell all my girlfriends about it, because i love it. i think pads and tampons will be for emergencies only from now on.

    I just can’t bring myself to shove anything up there... pads already make me anxious enough that I’m gonna bleed everywhere, and if there’s something up there, leaks could happen. And another note it would feel SO uncomfortable.

      Yes there are a ton of brands besides the diva cup. I reccomend searching 'put a cup in it quiz' which is a 9 question quiz that will match you to a cup with an almost 90% success rate 👍

    I just sat in the bathroom wrestling with my cup for more than an hour. I have to run today, and yesterday I leaked through my pad. I can't even put the cup inside, so i'm not even to the opening part yet. If anyone has any tips for me (a beginner) I would be extremely grateful! (I've been using the push-down fold with some water around the rim)

    Update- Today I couldn't get it in and I leaked...... how do i use the cup?!?

    Update 2- Still wearing a pad, and I leaked all over my white bed sheets. I really wish i could use a cup (By the way, I haven't gotten the cup in yet, not even past my opening. For these past updates i've been wearing a pad)

    Update 3- Still wearing a pad....ughh.......any advice would be SO amazing!

    • Nina K
      Nina K 12 days ago

      Stick a couple of your fingers up there to feel around and figure out your anatomy. After that you'll probably realize how a cup will fit in there. The opening of your vagina is the tighest(/hardest thing to get past) but it's super flexible so if you just push the cup in there it should fit --- as long as you don't have a super low cervix, which you might want to measure with your finger(s) too. Try different folds. And if nothing works out, tampons are good for excercising too, and probably a bit easier to use than cups if you've only ever used pads so far.

    I bought me one to try for 8 bucks, but I'm a very heavy bleeder. I soak thru an ultra tampon in 20 minutes. This happens on my 2nd and 3rd day and I'm on for a whole wk.

    • Nina K
      Nina K 14 days ago

      In a pinch, you can just dump the blood in the toilet and dry the cup with some tp. Or carry a waterbottle with you for cleaninf the cup. I recommend cleaning your hands before handling the cup though. (With sterilizing wipes or fluid...) You might also be able to go through the day without emptying your cup at school. 12h is the limit for wearing a cup and on some days you might be able to wear the cup for that long without it overflowing.

    I use a Ruby Cup (bonus: they donate a cup to a girl in a place where access to menstrual stuff isn't super common, so she can go to school all month and graduate), and it has a significantly longer stem, which also has grippy nubs, so getting a good hold is easy. Pulling it straight out, you'll be fighting suction, kind of like pulling your rain boot straight up out of the mud. If you tilt it and scoot one spot of the rim around, you can break the suction, and pulling it out becomes a LOT easier.
    Also, great job keeping a clear cup clear!
