    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.

                    I ordered the moon cup and it arrived today. I will let you know how i get on with it! Fingers crossed its easy, To me it looks quite big to just push up there, it may prove me wrong though!!!!

                      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
