Diva Cup / Instead Cup - tampon / pad alternative

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I'm good with the Diva cup, I used that for 2 days too.  I think I do like it more then the instead, but I can't figure out how to remove the instead cup w/o making a mess.

The instead is a little trickier. Try bearing down before you take it. It will cause the "seal" to break and should empty by itself. Then pull it out. Another way is to carry disposable gloves with you. Put the glove on, pull it out then empty it. Then squeeze it together like you're putting in, pull the glove from the wrist down and pull the instead cup inside the glove to throw away. Presto, no mess! Hope one of those will help you!

I love my diva cup but now that im on nuva ring they clash...once my period begins its time to put the ring back in and then the cup doesn't work with it. :-(

however my period is much lighter so just using a liner is fine.

Ok i have it in place this morning. Its true that its easier to insert the mooncup when you rinse it under water. I cannot feel it, it just feels warm down there. Lets just see if it leaks!!! I have a 10 hour flight to Jamaica on Tuesday, dare i use it then???? lol

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
