    My sister and I bought the Diva Cup like last year sometime. I tried it and it was too weird for me, but Jill has been using it ever since. So I decided to try it again this period. I didn't trust myself to commit to it while at work, so I am using it just while I am at home. Does anyone else use this? I found that when I used it yesterday, it was much easier to get in and out then previously and it didn't leak at all. It was just weird. I could feel it, especially when moving down to sit on the couch, or when I moved to get up. Other then that, I couldn't really tell. But the way I could feel it when moving up or down was very uncomfortable. Like I don't know if I could wear it all day at work and feel that everytime I sat or stood. And I don't think it was in wrong, cuz I wasn't leaking and it caught everything. Then in the middle of the night, I went to the bathroom and switched to a tampon, cuz I could feel it when I would move around. If you've used it, is this something the body will become accustomed too?

    If you don't know what it is, check out the website - Diva Cup

      I never heard of it. I just checked out their website but I admit I don't get it. LOL. How big is this cup that your inserting up there? It sounds weird to me except that its green since you can reuse it which sounds cool.

        Hmmmm, it's pretty small. Less then 2"? I am really bad at guessing sizes, but I can measure it when I get home tonight. It is weird, but what the hell, penises go in there, so this teeny cup shouldn't be too bad!

        I am just wondering if I have to use it longer to get used to it, or if it will always be umcomfortable.

          Yeah I read about this a while ago. I was going to try it out but it's not worth irtfor me because my period only last about 3 days and a liner is all I use.

              I have never tried this brand, but there is another brand out there that I use once in awhile when I remember and I love it.

              You can even have knookie while using it...

                NO WAY! I wouldn't've thought that! What is this other brand that you mean? Moon cup or something?

                  No, it comes in a purple box and I think it starts with a D. Let me look it up.
