I didn't notice I had done it until trying to take it out, it hurt bad. Thankfully, it hasn't happened recently.

Personally, I don't like any 'thing' left in the woowoo; I don't use tampons nor would I use the NuvaRing - just not comfortable with leaving 'stuff' in there for an extended amount of time.

Maybe that is another reason tampons freak me out. I still use them for the convience/cleanliness factor, but it is still weird to me. I'm ok with not having periods ever again. If it weren't for me wanting a baby, I'd get fixed somehow!

As to the boiling. Yes just go buy the smallest cheapest pot in the store. You can also wash it with vinegar and water. I just rinse with the hottest water when I'm using it and it helps to put it in if its a little wet. Then at the end of my cycle I wash in boiling water and put back in the bag.
And the PP who talked about tampons making you dry. I HATE HATE that so much. And with the diva cup it doesn't it's great. Plus there is a measuring line on the DC that tells you how much you bleed. I always feel like I bleed so much with tampons. But I barely fill up the DC. I know it's full cause I can feel it? I don't know how to explain. It gets heavier I guess. I also recommend Luna Pads that Jess linked. They are adorable and so soft. You can use liners as a backup if you're scared of leaking.
And again you CANNOT use this during sex. It sits too low. Unless your man is 1/2 an inch. Then I'm very sorry!
Oh and Morgan who asked about being at work. I always carry water with me...just b/c I like to keep hydrated. But another board I read about women who carry water in their purse so they can rinse it instead of wipe it with a tissue. Just use the water and rinse over the toilet. I rarely need to empty mine while I'm out b/c you can keep it for 12 hours as long as your flow isn't really heavy.
