I Tried The Diva Cup

  • Опубликовано: 9 апр 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'm so glad I bought my menstrual cup a couple of years ago. I agree with everything Safiya said, it was tricky to use at first and I had to get practise on inserting and removing it but now I'm a pro! It has saved me so much money, I don't have to buy pads or tampons anymore. It's better for the environment and you only have to change it twice a day. Win win!

    It took me a couple of periods to get used to it too but now I can’t imagine going back to pass or tampons. I keep one at home, one at the gym and one in my car just so I’m never caught unprepared! I love love love that you’re tackling period issues in such a nonchalant and approachable manner. Keep up the good work!

    You don't pull it out by the nub. The nub is basically just to help you grab it. You need to use your finger to break the seal on your cervix before you pull it out, don't just pull. Put your finger at the side of the cup and push on it you will feel the seal break.

    The piece at the and of the cup is not realy there to get it out. If you squezze the cup just a bit higher so a little bit of air can get above the cup then the air pressure will even out and you can easily get the cup out.

    I had one for a while but it got stained after a few months and had to be thrown out. Too expensive to be a real solution. The suction also really concerned me. I felt a painful pulling in there.

    • Amy Lake
      Amy Lake 2 часа назад

      ... to get rid of the staining all you have to do is soak it in hydrogen peroxide. Itll remove the stain. Staining doesnt mean the cup is dirty- its media grade silicone and as long as you sanitize properly, it is not dirty, the pigment of your blood and the warmth of your body just dyes the silicone. Again, easy fix just by soaking it in hydrogen peroxide.
      There suction issue means you weren't taking it put properly. You're supposed to pinch the base of the cup to break the suction, not just pull it out.

      No. The urethra (where you pee from) is a totally different hole than the vagina (where you bleed from). A menstrual cup doesn't affect urination at all, nor do tampons.

    Does it work with heavierr periods?? Like do you have to change it more often??

    • Amy Lake
      Amy Lake 2 часа назад

      It does work for heavy periods. The diva cup's capacity is 30ml, which is a lot. There are people who have to empty it every few hours- people with insanely heavy periods. Even then it's better to use a menstrual cup rather than a tampon because itll hold more fluid, plus its reusable so you dont bulldoze through a box of tampons in one period. Once you get used to it, it really doesnt take long to put in and take out. For me, it's no slower than putting in and removing tampons was for me. Pretty quick process.

  • Jada Louie
    Jada Louie 2 дня назад

    Ok! Like everything she said was spot on. I had a problem with severely heavy periods. Mine never let up. I was day 2 for 14 days. Yes, my case was extreme. Because it was so extreme the sight of all that blood and the amount of money I was spending every period on panties , tampons , pads, sheets , toilet, paper, new clothes .... it drove me crazy . I heard and read about the diva cup and it saved me.
    Yes it’s a bitch to get out and you have to step up your sanitation game it was a life saver for me and so worth the $39.00 (Walmart) investment.
    On another note . Unfortunately/ yet fortunate for me I had a bigger picture to look at. I found out I developed chronic anemia
    due to many fibroids and a grossly enlarged uterus which lead to an 11 day emergency hospital stay 8 blood transfusions and a total hysterectomy. So ladies stay on top of it. Which brings me to this... If the diva cup ( which I have no use of ever in life but I still keep because it was such a great tool for me , it’s clean please don’t judge) could work for me with such a heavy condition, it could work for an average flow. I had to change my cup 3 or 4 times a day but I never had a leak overnight which meant I could finally have get a decent nights rest during my period. THANK GOD!! Thank You 🙏🏽 🙏🏽🙏🏽 DIVA CUP.

    You could take a bottled water that you filled with city water with you on the go and your own travel sized mild soap. To dump and clean quickly right there in your stall and wash your hands at the public sink like normal.

    Public washroom tip: bring a bottle of water. Wash hands before going into stall. Use paper towel on stall door and lock. Break cup seal. Empty into toliet rinse with water bottle,don't use all water. Reinsert, must rotate or use finger to circle around the rim inside. Use remaining water to rinse vagina opening. Wipe dry. I also use reusable carbon fabric pads on heavier days in case of leakage. Spent $60, 3 yrs ago. Haven't used any other feminine hygiene products since. Saved lotsnof money plus much less waste.

      Amy Lake Час назад

      Even if that's the case, a menstrual cup holds more fluid than a tampon. So unless you're changing your tampon every 2 minutes, you wont be dumping your menstrual cup every 5 minutes. Plus, itll save you money since its reusable and you wont have to buy new tampons every month.

    I always wanted to love the diva cup! I tried it for about 6 months but had to empty it every 4 hours or so and it was impossible if I had to go to work or change it in a public bathroom. If I wore it more than a few hours I ended up needing to wear a pad because it overflowed, which defeated the purpose

  • Alysia Rice
    Alysia Rice 4 дня назад

    For anyone else who has trouble taking the Diva cup out, I find it helps to not just tug on the little stem at the bottom but to actually find the base of the cup and pinch it to undo the suction and pull it out more easily. When you put the cup in, it makes a sort of like vacuum seal so that the blood stays up there in the cup, that's why when you pull the stem and let go it kind of sucks back up, by pinching the bottom of the cup itself, it breaks that seal.

    My period is like the elevator scene from Cabin in the Woods. My period sees your diva cup and laughs while it puts its cigarette out on your face.
    My period requires offerings of extra heavy extra long overnight pads four times a day for seven days. Tampons and other products are sacrilegious.

    • Nina K

      +poisonmist13 literally said that it's cool if you choose to not wear/even try cups --- but I don't like people spreading misinformation, which is what you're doing even though you have never even used a cup.
      You might have difficulties with tampons/cups because of some condition like vaginismus, but this "my vagina is too small" is bullshit. If your mother has some medical condition that nearly killed her while giving birth, I'm sure her doctor would have told her about it.

    • poisonmist13
      poisonmist13 3 дня назад

      Nina K And maybe there is something wrong with how I’m developed. My own mother nearly died in childbirth and she had a lot of the same issues I have with my period. There could very well be something wrong with me that’s why I’m talking about it here with other women. If I need to seek help then I want to know that.

    • poisonmist13
      poisonmist13 3 дня назад

      Nina K I don’t appreciate the hostility here, I know my own body and I think I’m more qualified to tell you what’s normal for me. I have extreme difficulty with tampons and other devices, and for me that’s ok.
      I don’t think you have a right to talk that way about my personal decision or my body. I think it’s this kind hostility that prevents health information from getting to people that need it.

    I saw a video showing how to wash it in a public stall, the girl brought a water bottle and rinsed it out with that in the stall, reinserted it, then said to clean it more thoroughly when you get home! I thought it was a pretty solid way to clean it inconspicuously.

      Your doctor might not be informed that well. Cups are very different - being made from silicone (medical grade) or tpe - thing baby pacifiers are made of, unlike tampons and pads! can't develop bacteria in itself. Proper hygiene is given, in any case.

    I have been using the Diva cup for about 2 years and I have to say if you keep using it each month it gets easier to get in and out. After two years, I get it in and out with ease. It truly is total freedom and no fear of toxic shock from Tampons. In a pinch, you can dump it in a stall and wipe it with toilet paper and put it back in, when there is no water around. It cleans off real easy. The best and cheapest period product ever, but you have to give it time to learn and feel comfortable.

  • Robin Targett
    Robin Targett 5 дней назад

    i would just like to say, the Diva Cup is also a safer alternative for your immune system and overall health.
    because tampons contain dioxins which are incredibly harmful to your body, no matter the level of exposure to them. dioxins have been proven to cause endometriosis and other immune health problems, so i just wanted everyone to know that this is the safest alternative, unless you look for dioxin-free or unbleached products, which include diapers and toilet paper.
    i also want to say the reason they’re still available, it’s because the FDA doesn’t conduct the research when the tampons, pads etc. are being made, those companies hire their own legal team and give their “safe” findings to the FDA and then they approve them. i think, if you can, people that get periods should use the Diva Cup, because it’s also much more environmentally friendly as oppose to tampons and pads, that take years and years to break down.

  • Emeralde O'Donnell
    Emeralde O'Donnell 6 дней назад

    A few tips from a seasoned diva user:
    -That rotation bit is so hard, never been able to do it. You're supposed to rotate to make sure the cup opens fully, but wiggling it a little does the trick
    -That little stick is not enough grip to pull out, makes it more of an ordeal than it needs to be. It's easier removing if you pinch the bottom part of the cup just above the stick
    -If you need to change in public in a pinch, silicon is anti-bacterial so it's not the end of the world if you don't rinse (and washing with soap is also not necessary. Not worth the money if you're buying the special diva brand tbh). In multi-stall bathrooms, I wipe the cup down with toilet paper in the stall after I empty it before reinserting, then I just rinse it at home.

  • happyhypo1
    happyhypo1 6 дней назад

    I use similar product. You can cold clean it using desinfection tablets - therefore no need to boil water :) I clean it also in public toilets in work. Just take it out, wipe it out with toilet paper, rinse it in the sink a apply again. The problem with pressure when take it out is easy to solved with holding the cup holder with two fingers and gently pushing 3th finger lenghtwise the cup. This will release the pressure. Just need a litle practice :D

    On my heavy days (usually at least 4 or 5) I wear 2 super- plus-tampons and a pad.....
    Or those of you who have the kind of periods that start/stop, start/stop......my last one was gangbusters for 6 days then petered out on day seven, gone day 8 and 9, woke up day ten to gangbuster city and then day 11 and 12 slowly died...day 13 gone....it's due in 2 wks again.

      Super tampons usually hold around 10ml of fluid while cups usually hold around 20-30ml --- so I think those with heavy flows should definitely give cups a try.

    I love my Diva cup, best $30 I ever spent. Once you get passed the first period you get used to how to use it, gets pretty quick and easy. And for your issue of single stalls to sink, Diva makes wipe packets so you can clean it in situations like that.

    I so understand the bubble feeling!!! It happens to me on my heaviest days. Like air comes out.... But yeah you need to change it when you feel the bubbles. I recommend the Diva Cup to everyone because it has changed my life.

    Coming back because a year ago you posted this and I purchased a menstrual cup and it's been a huge influence on my life. Thankyou Saf. I can never go back now

    Just a tip.. Your not supposed to pull on the stem, you get your finger and thumb up then pinch and pull. 100% reccomend it.

    I love my Diva cups, having a bidet is a great luxury when needing to change it. I have 3 and change them round, one to wash one to use and one for spare. I find the cup so freeing! Also it tightens up everything over time, my husband can vouch for that.... ;)

    I know I'm very late to this video but I've been using a cup for a couple of years now and would never go back to tampons. However, I have discovered a cup that has a built in empty valve for when you're using public toilets, so you can empty the cup without taking it out. This revolutionary in my mind. I'd love to know if they're any good...just, if you fancy it...

    Swear by this thing - would never go back. Maybe having had a baby previously makes it more user-friendly?

      Probably, but you can wear a cup even if you're a virgin. I use a sturdy large cup (bc I have quite heavy flow) though I haven't had kids, and it really didn't take that much for me to get used to it. I also know someone who has given vaginal birth twice and still only feels comfortable with a small cup, so who knows...

    Can you pee and poop while the diva cup is still in there and if you can, is it hygenic?

    It's only difficult learning to put it in/take it out in the beginning. I swear it gets easier.
