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!

    My question is how diffrent from a tampon is it inserting wise because I cant use tampons because I have scar tissue up there from how bad I ripped giving birth to my son so tampons hurt real bad would that happen with it or not? Cause I hate using pads they suck ass lol but because of the pain I cant use tampons. Maybe I'll give it a try Idk.

      I went to a cup because my variable flow made tampons impossible. I'd say if you are still able to be intimate, you should be able to use a cup. It's not bigger than a man, as it were.

  • Just Flynn
    Just Flynn 3 days ago

    I bought a MeLuna cup a while ago and tried that. I got the size it recommended for my body type but I had some troubles with it and it kept leaking, so my sister suggested maybe it's too big and not unfolding properly and I should get a smaller one, so I did, but my period is definitely too heavy for the smaller cup, way too much hassle when the city has exclusively multiple stall bathrooms... Now my sister has a new cup (I'm not sure what brand it is) but it is a sturdier silicone, so I'm thinking of getting one of those in the hopes that it'll unfold better... Apparently the luna cup is too flimsy to unfold if you have ~muscly walls~ or something... Also the luna cup went from translucent like yours to straight up brown, you could really tell that there was depositions getting trapped in the silicone and discolouring it... Not the best selling point

    Am I the only who has like...a really, really, light period? Blood wise, I could get away with one pad and my cycle is only like three days. I do change my pad more often, but I got a large box of size 2 pads about a year and a half ago, possibly even two, and I'm still on it. My period was pretty regular for like 5 months after I first started (I started a little late), and then after that, for a solid year, my period was so unpredictable. Some months it'd skip, other times I had two, both only a couple days though, and I'd have no idea when it was going to start. It was really nice when I finally started to normalize again these past 7 months. Well there's my period stuff so, yay! Lol

    Okay some tips from someone who has used this for 3 years now.
    First, try different folds when putting it in. It took me a few trys to get the hang of it.
    Second, if you can feel it then you dont have it in correctly. If it's up and where it should be you cant feel it at all.
    Third, when taking it out push like your pooping/having a baby while pulling and itll be 10x easier. Once its lower, pinch it to break the air seal and itll pop out no problem.
    Fourth, you can wear it full but if you sit or do a bad movement it can leak when its entirely full. Also if it does leak and it's not full you dont have it in right.
    Fifth, I know it says up to 12 hours but at the end of my cycle I'll wear it literally all day for 18+ hours. If you have a heavy flow it would still get full and possibly leak.
    If I think of anything else ill edit :)

    I really appreciate this video and how you openly and so confidently talk about periods, it helps so much. I gave the menstrual cup a try myself because I was looking for a more eco-friendly menstrual product and it is simply revolutionary and works so well for me that I'm wondering why still so little women know about this alternative.
    Anyways, thanks a lot for this video :)

      @It's Dally i do not give a damn if my hymen breaks or not but u r right i'll have to wait

    • It's Dally
      It's Dally 2 days ago +1

      Akkoy Dakkoy My friends go through the same problem.
      I don’t mean any disrespect or anything, but your hymen is already broken from everyday activities. If your hymen wasn’t broken and was perfectly intact, then no women would ever have periods in the first place.
      Anyway, if it’s a culture/religious thing, then you might have to wait it out until you leave the house unfortunately.

    • Akkoy Dakkoy
      Akkoy Dakkoy 2 days ago +1

      @It's Dally it is more about religion she is a strict muslim so she believes if your hymen breaks you are'nt worth anything🤷‍♀️

    • It's Dally
      It's Dally 2 days ago +1

      Akkoy Dakkoy You should try to convince your mom as to why menstrual cups are better than pads. You could show or tell her all the problems with pads and how menstrual cups solve that.
      You can also try to talk with your mom as to why she doesn’t want you using alternative period products.

    My period last about seven days to and I love my diva cup. The con is that when you are inserting and taking it out after a couple days it starts to get raw down there but it is easy and comfy and when the cup is filled up it will actually let me know that it is filled up by making it feel like I am “free bleeding” but there is actually no blood or liquid down there.... when you do take it out it is supposed to be suctioned up in there so it does not slip out and for me when I pull it out there is like a suctioning noise LOL. I take two showers one in the morning and one at night that is when I dump it. And I also like it because I have no risk of toxic shock syndrome or anything like that.

    Unrelated to the cup, one time I was on my period and I needed to pee and I felt the blood come out 🤢🤮 and I stood up after thinking I was done and umm... this chunk of bloody mucus just slid out onto my pants and I had to legit pick it up with toilet paper and put it in the toilet...

    In order it choose the right Period cup, you need to check how high or low your Cervix are, and the easiest way to get it out is when you SQUAT in the shower. when you squat, it lowers your cervix and you can grasp the stem, ring, or ball, to get the cup out. there are soo many different cups for different cervix levels. I hope this helped.

    how old do you recommend using a diva cup? I am only a teenager and so are my friends and if someone like me would want to use it should I wait for a few years until I'm an adult? also how would I convince my mother to let me use it, even though it's much better than most other ways of dealing with a period I think she would make me stick with tampons.

    • puposaurus rex
      puposaurus rex 2 days ago +1

      @It's Dally thanks, I think i'm pretty used to my period, it's been a while with tampons only and I want to change it so I'll try to talk with my mom about the benefits of a menstrual cup.

    • It's Dally
      It's Dally 2 days ago

      I’m 14 and I use menstrual cups, so I think a general guideline is to try them when you are comfortable with your periods and are used to it.
      As for the issue with your mom, you could try presenting all the problems with tampons(TSS, unknown chemicals, producing waste, costly) and present how menstrual cups solve the problem(reusable, save money over the long run, can’t get TSS).

    Used one for years. It quickly became a piece of cake to insert and remove! From tampons that had to be changed every two hours, and backed up by a full pad, I went to Diva cup and a panty liner for just in case! Awesome product!

    I love my menstrual cup❣ It takes a little getting used to, but after you've mastered "the negotiation", it's really awesome. I also like the fact that it's reusable unlike normal pads and tampons. Also I really can't feel it once it's 'up there', when again tampons have a more noticeable presence. Highly recommend. Thank you Safiya for this video!👍💖
