Or, if you a gal with a weak stomach, you might wanna skip too.
Ok? Anyone still with me? I was reading Cosmo at lunch and came upon an Ad for "The Diva Cup."
The DivaCup™ is very sanitary, comfortable, reliable and convenient. It holds one full ounce (30 ml). Since the entire cycle is an average of 30-40 ml*, most women find that the cup is not even half full after 12 hours.
Depending on your flow empty the cup 2-3 times per 24 hour day, wash and reinsert. It can be worn up to 12 hours, even overnight. The DivaCup™ is ideal for all activities including swimming, camping, backpacking, and travelling. It is suitable for all menstruating women of all ages.
So, um, you have to wash it out? In the sink? The same place you brush your teeth?
I read some of the testimonials, and they RAVE about this. I don't know. Washing it out, yeah, kinda grosses me out. But women used to do this anyway, before tampons, right? I mean, wash and reuse. ugh
And they are only sold at health food places, like Whole Foods. Hmmm.
Does anyone use this?
