It makes me squeamish. There is NOTHING diva like about shoving a cup up your hoo ha and having it fill up like a glass full of Kool Aid. People, or I should say, women rave about this thing. I can't seem to jump on the bandwagon. Especially after reading the reviews
I've been anxiously awaiting my period (how often do ya hear that one?) since I received your product a few weeks ago...
Anxiously awaiting? Only nuns praying they are not pregnant anxiously await that beast. Ok, so maybe undercover nuns like Whoopi Goldberg do, but still.
First off, I am not a gusher; it's just not an aspect of my personality, BUT...Oh My God! I L-O-V-E my new DivaCup...
Gusher? ewww, maybe they should create a Diva Bottle for the gushers out there. Sorry I couldn't resist. It was there, and I laughed and yeah, moving on.
I am all about doing good things for the environment. But sending aunt flo packing in a plastic dixie cup is not my style. It's not. I was skimming through the frequently asked questions, like is it messy? IT'S still a period. I don't care what you say, that stuff is messy, and gross, and nasty. Natural or not. The Diva cup isn't a vacuum that sucks that Uterus lake up to dry. It's more like a holding tank, just like a tampon is.
Can it collect other fluids other than menstrual flow?
WTF??? EWWWW. and talk about needing to talk the drippy shippy to the doc(k) and get it looked at. God my gagger hurts with that one.
Reading the instructions and seeing terms like "bear down" and "squat" sends me running for the hills. Sounds way too much like Pocahontas giving birth.
Yeah, not for me. We all do our part in this world, and I'll be leaving this for the others out there. Especially when this thing involves sizing it and boiling it. Don't worry Tampax pearl, you still got my vote.
