Diva Cup Works Well Modified

Post  Isebeau on Tue Jun 29, 2010 8:45 am

Rating: 4 (Works great for me when I inverted the product--which isn't stated in the directions.)

This is the first one I ever tried and didn't even know there were that many out there! I ordered the Diva 2 as I have had two children. (They come in two sizes.)

My first two tries were difficult and after some online searching I saw that others used the cup inside out. I tried that and had a leak free very pleasant expereince. I can not wear tampons because of increased cramping and discomfort, but I had no problems with the Diva Cup once I got down how to insert it properly.

The first two days I had to clean it out more often than just morning and night because of very heavy flow, but found I could clean it and replace it in a few seconds.

Hints that I found were helpful: Get it wet with water before inserting. Practicing inserting in the shower where you're not concerned about dropping it in the toilet or making a mess on the floor.

When I switched from The Keeper to the Divacup I thought i was entering a whole new world of cups. Silicone revolutionized my world on that front, but now that I've had the pleasure of using other cups...The Diva gets knocked a little further down my love list.

The shape doesn't conform to my body as well as I like or have experienced with other cups. Still a great option, but not my favorite.

I rated a 2


This is not to discourage others from trying it as this was only my personal experience.
I loved the concept of the cup and I did have success getting it in and out, no problem.

However, it may just be I had the wrong size, but i found out when it was in, I couldn't pee!! I got the size instructed by the website/customer service. It was odd and unsettling. My other issue is when you fold it to insert it and it unfolds inside you to fit, it makes an uncomfortable suctioning in your vagina, which I did not enjoy at all. I used to cringe waiting for it to happen. So needless to say I am no longer using the cup. I did like it better than tampons as far as it's use though.

Discomfort

Post  Sarruby on Mon Sep 08, 2014 12:54 pm

Summary: I tried this 4 times with 3 different periods. Not only did it leak after a few hours each time, but it was also uncomfortable while using it. Removal also sucked.

I got this product without comparing it to other menstrual cups because a friend highly recommended it. In the future, I think I'll look around for a "beginner's" version of anything friends recommend to me from now on.

While wearing: I know some people claim not to feel it at all, but to me I could feel it - strangely - as if I had something pressing on my rectum the last two times I tried it. It was uncomfortable at all times, and I felt like I needed to do number 2 constantly. It also leaked after a bit. I may have had it at the wrong angle or something, but it was never comfortable to wear.

Removal: Lucky for me, I'm fairly comfortable with blood and sticking fingers up there. But my first time, I didn't remember the instructions and pulled it straight out without trying to break the seal or refold it - and that hurt like you wouldn't believe. It also took like 15+ minutes. I was more successful with a painless removal the second and third times, but it left everything a little dry and sore. I stopped using it for a few months, and when I tried again, the last removal took a several minutes because it had risen inside me and I couldn't get a grip because of all the leaky blood.

I didn't like it, but I'm sure other people do. Quite frankly, this experience had turned me away from menstrual cups for the time being, and I'm looking into reusable pads instead.
