Diva Cup / Instead Cup - tampon / pad alternative

Recommended Posts

10 hours is such a long time, I'm not sure....  I would only trust it for that long if it was a super light day.

I have a diva cup and really like it.  It's more comfortable for me than tampons and I have never had "leakage" problems that can happen when you bleed through a tampon.  Ewww!  It does take some getting used to.

Tampons are a paper product. They absorb ALL moisture. Which is why it can hurt removing a dryer tampon when you pee. A diva cup or instead cup is a cup that only catches menstrual blood. It leaves all other body moisture alone so you don't dry out. 

 

It is also better for the environment b/c you reuse the product or recycle it.  Tampons go straight through to the landfill. EW.

I love this product and have been using it for years. was a bit daunted when I first started using it but I will NEVER go back. I keep tampons in the house for only 1 reason - my girlfriends who visit.

I have thought about trying it, but I'm nervous.  Is it really that great?

It takes a bit to get used to but once you get the hang of placement I think it is. There are a number of reasons why I like it but the top 3 - better for me, better for the environment and better on the wallet - you're not constantly buying tampons!

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
