Default Divacup

I am thinking about trying the Divacup.

I don't generally like inserting things but I think I could get used to it. It also seems way less drying than a tampon (though I've only tried that once).

Also, I've noticed that pads seem to make me itchy. I never associated the itch with the pads but I think that is the case.

Anyone use one?

There are lots of diva cup wearers on this board if you do a search you can find the old threads. I love my diva cup and you couldnt pay me to go back to tampons. Its a slight learning curve but once you get the hang of it they are great.

I couldn't get the hang of diva cups. I might've had a moon (?) cup though. It would be nice to use something with higher capacity than a tampon. I don't know what's going on but today my period is nuts! It's probably because I took 3 BC pills in 24 hours. Duh...
