Product Review: Diva Cup



YAY!!! My first eco-friendly product review. I decided to take the plunge after hearing about this product. At first, I thought it was a female version of the pimp cup. Silly me. The price may turn some people off but if you do the math it's ECO-nomical. No matter how you try to slice and dice it. Believe me I tried.

Cost: $39.49 a cotton carry bag, diva lapel pin, & user guide was included.

                                         

Product Claim:

Clean-Comfortable-Convenient
Reusable-Economical-Environmentally Responsible
Proven Reliable Protection! No leaks
Top grade silicone- No latex, rubber, plastic, or BPA

I was a little scared to try this product. When I first saw it I kept thinking this looks like it's going to hurt. What if it gets stuck and I can't get it out? Can it handle my flow? I put all my fear to rest and just tried it.

I read the instructions and followed the diagram provided. The first couple days were a bit messy which is when flow is heavy. It was a little difficult to put in at first and don't get me started on taking it out. I almost called 911. But all was forgiven since it was my first time.

I re-read the directions and the secret is to relax those muscles. Whew!!! I can put the phone down now.
             

                                                                           PROS:

-There was no annoying feeling letting me know I had it on unlike tampons.

- I didn't have to wake up in the middle of the night in a pool of you know what.

-I was able to go about my everyday business without having to change on the hour every hour.

-I'm reducing my carbon footprint by using this product.
           

  CONS:

- I just wish I knew about this a lot sooner. Man, the amount of $$$ I could have saved.

-I did experienced some minor stains but practice makes perfect.

-A free sample of the diva wash would have been nice. Just saying!

All in all I think this is a good product. Will I purchase again? Absolutely, not until next year. But, I'll be honest if you take proper care and use it for it's intended purpose, this product looks like you won't have to replace for a good while. Don't tell 'em I told you that.  I wonder what I should do with my leftover tampons.
                                         
                                                   It's official I'm a Diiii-vvvvaaaahhhh
