Totally worth it! Takes some practice for insertion but overall it is a great product. A must buy for women who seek to take control of their feminine care needs.
There's definitely a learning curve with this product, and I'm not sure I have it positioned correctly each time. Will take practice, but I'm ok with that if it means not buying tampons anymore! Shipping/arrival was quick. I might try a different brand of cup to see if it is easier to work with.
Absolutely love this product! I am only sad I didn't know about this years ago. There is a small learning curve, but once you figure it out it offers amazing protection, even on your heaviest days. It is so nice to be able to put it in when you are expecting your period but it hasn't arrived yet, what other product can you do that with? It is also easy to clean! I also love that you leave it in all day, and empty once in the morning and once at night. I spend a lot of time on outdoor adventures, and often don't have a proper bathroom available, so it's nice that I don't have to worry about tampons or pads anymore. Love, love, love!
As a concept I loved the diva cup. And it is great quality. It was a little tricking learning to use it at first. But the benefits are worth it. I quickly discovered it was not the right size for me (too long). I probably should have done more research before buying it. I've decided to buy another brand that is a better fit for me.
Great product, no sticky heat rash in summer. Cant feel it when in. If you have trouble with multiple insertions of tampons a day due to soreness this is great! No pain, no tampons, no pads!!! Learning curb yes, totally worth it!
It took me about 5 years to finally get the courage to try out the Diva Cup; I wish I hadn't waited. It has a learning curve and requires you to really get to know your body and your flow, but I am seriously wishing someone had given me this 20 years ago. I found my period was slightly shorter, a lot less uncomfortable, and with no waste and very little mess, it really is a better alternative to pads or tampons. If you are hesitant or want some more information before converting, I suggest you spend some time looking at YouTube videos, there are a lot of good ones. Additionally, check out the active LiveJournal community board on menstrual cups; there are answers to any question you can imagine on there. I'm really happy with this purchase!
First time user, I was sceptical, really impressed 100% better than expected.
I really like the product however I can't use it the first few days as my flow is just too heavy. Takes some trial and error to ensure proper insertion, but the more you do it, the simpler it becomes. Definitely recommend it.
Unlike another reviewer, I'm thrilled that I only have to go to the washroom every 2 hours to empty the cup on my worst days. If you've ever soaked through a super-plus absorbent tampon and overnight maxi pad in 20 minutes, get one of these! I'm scheduled for a hysterectomy within the year but this Diva Cup has made the wait for more bearable.
I've been a DivaCup user for years. Sanitary, effective, odorless, and wasteless. Now that I'm a proud mother, it's time to move up in size. For anyone struggling to get the hang of insertion, there are a great many videos on YouTube demonstrating different folds -- experiment to figure out which one is easiest and pops open most easily for you.
Really great product. I found it easy to use, no leaks and was comfortable to wear. Clean up was easy to.
Works great, so long as you do not have heavy periods. My last one was heavy for a couple days and I was having to empty it every two hours (and throughout the night). Though not the cups problem that I was heavy, but it became quite a chore to empty it each time (thank goodness I was at home) as you have to wash your hands prior to and after, and with the amount of blood I felt like I was performing surgery each time - sorry if it's too much information! On the plus side you know exactly how much blood you are losing and report that to your doc if need be.
I ADORE the Diva Cup!! What an amazing product. I will never, ever go back to wearing tampons again. There is a small learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, it works wonders. It never leaks and it feels much cleaner than tampons and/or pads. I strongly recommend it. And a bonus? No risk of toxic shock syndrome - ever!
Love, love, LOVE my diva cup! I'm not polluting my body or the environment with toxic tampons, nor wasting my money on them either! Wish I would have found this years ago!
I wish I'd known about this years ago! Easy to use once you get the hang of it, and no more buying wasteful tampons or pads! So many benefits to this product, getting a little more up close and personal with yourself to use it is totally worth it. Don't be scared ladies - there's no big mess and it's easy to get the hang of using.
I can't say I love it yet because I have to get used to it. I do think this is excellent for the environment and there is no wastage. Cleaning is also very easy and effective. In the long run this is definitely the better alternative in terms of cost and safety. Well shipped this super fast as always. It also helps to go on youtube for instructions for inserting & especially removing.
The Diva Cup has been a life changer. I've said goodbye to sanitary pads and tampons for ever. I feel clean and dry all month. And, I've used it during the most rigorous of workouts with no leakage!
I LOVE this product! It has a bit of a learning curve but it worth the effort to learn. Clean, discreet and comfortable if you don't mind touching your ladies bits a little to put it in. It will change your menstrual life, promise.
Took a few try's to get the hang of it, but it was so worth it. I love the diva cup! I will never go back to tampons.
I wish I'd bought one a long time ago! I love that I won't be spending money on other menstrual products. Well.ca also shipped it very quickly.
Don't give up on this thing so easily! It took me until my second cycle to figure it out, but now that I have, I love it! I did get frustrated the first few days I used it. I almost thought it just wouldn't work for my body, but there is just a learning curve to it. I can see this being great for camping and traveling. I'm glad to not have to spend any more money on organic tampons!
I don't know how I lived so many years without this cup! I've been using the Diva Cup for several months before leaving a review. It's so convenient and non-messy. The instruction is very easy to follow, but make sure you follow it or else the cup won't sit right.
