Don't read if you're uncomfortable by the menstrual cycle!******
Recently, I was watching a YouTube video where they mentioned a product called The Diva Cup. At first, I thought it was such a weird concept but then I looked more into it and finally decided to purchase one. What's different about it is that you have to empty out the contents, wash it, then reinsert it. This can be gross for some people so this product may not be for them. But here are reasons why I think you should consider buying The Diva Cup:
1) You can leave it in for up to 12 hours. Obviously if you have a heavier flow, you may need to empty it out more than 12 hours but thus far 12 hours is enough. I empty it out once I wake up and once before I go to bed.
2) This will be so helpful for travel. Each Diva Cup comes with a little bag (pictured above) and so you can take it with you while you travel. No need to navigate your way to a convenient store to buy tampons or pads because you have this with you and all you need to do is find a bathroom. Also, if you're on a long flight or a long day of excursions, you won't need to worry about changing your tampon or pad either!
3) It is so cost efficient. I bought mine for $40 and they recommend you buy a new one every year. I think I'm most excited about this because I can save a good deal of money now that I don't have to allot my pay check to sanitary needs.
When I first started using The Diva Cup, I did have some leakage because I was getting used to how it should sit. However, I have it down pat and love it! I think that is the only con about it. At first, it may be messy but that's just because you're trying something new. I HIGHLY recommend this product!
