I have a Diva cup and LOVE it!! So for any noobs out there who don't know taking it out is only a chore because she didn't break the seal. That's how the cup works, and why it's so important to make sure the holes drilled on the lip of it are free of any obstructions. So to take it out easily ya best pinch it.

I honestly love my menstrual cup. I only used it for one cycle so far but I find it so much easier and overall better then pads and tampons

I've tried a menstrual cup before. I didn't like putting my fingers all up in myself while I'm bleeding, it can get messy, and so I wasn't down for that. I ended up going back to tampons for that reason.

If you were leaking, either the cup didn’t fully open or you might need the model 2 which holds more blood than the model 1 that you have saf :)

I saw this video too late I guess. But in starting you might feel uncomfortable and while removing will be tricky but I usually give little pressure on that area then automatically it come out little bit then I pull it. I love your video. Good job lady 😀

Been using my Diva Cup for over a year and still going strong. Your review was 💯 accurate. I’ve tried disposable cups but they’re a big time miss for me. So glad I tried this product. I will never go back to the other.

When I change in public, I dont wash in between. As long as you clean your hands before going into the stall, it can go back in since it hasn't touched anything that isn't already in your body :)

I love the idea of a diva cup because of how eco friendly it is and stuff, but I cannot deal with things.... Up there. I can't even use my fingers or a tampon or anything, so I really want to eventually try out some of the reusable pads or something like that

I love using a cup. There are a few other types but the Diva is one I would say is the most "sturdy". I actually have found using a cup reduces my cramp pains.

To take it out I'd recommend NOT grabbing it by the stem. Go higher and pinch it to release the vacuum, then pull it out.

Mary Jane - 7 days ago
+nonbinarypal Thank you so much! I will use your tips whenever i do get it <3 😊
nonbinarypal - 7 days ago
Its ok hunny ill help, when you first get your period it might be really light and really irregular (mine was verry irregular for several months) irregular as in you may bleed really heavy, maybe really light, maybe multiple times a month, you might skip months untill your hormones settle dont freak out about missing it when it first starts, after that it all depends on the level of hormones called estrogen and progesterone on how long it is how heavy it is and also how much it hurts ok so my suggestion is get a perse and put a change of underwear some extra pads (i would recommend pads when just starting out unless you are really active) and some pain meds if you can like tylonal or ibuprofen (tic-tak cases work great or like those duos mint things) and just a lot of chocolate (scientifically it helps (atleast thats what i tell myself but it does make me feel better)) And remember it sucks but you'll live (it might not feel like it but you will 😊) If you have ANY questions tell me and i will try my best to answer ok It'll be ok 🤗

A tip about removing it since you had trouble. Don't grip the tip and pull bc the seal won't be broken and that's why you get that suction/pulling back inside feeling. Instead, grip it, push down with your muscles and rock it back and forth like you're just wriggling it side to side. The seal will break and then it will slide out much easier with no suction. Or you can put your finger up next to it and fold it to release the seal. Hope this makes people less afraid of the process of removal. I find it's more pleasant to remove than a tampon once you get the hang of it. :)

Depends on the person, but basically, yes. For some people, the Diva cup can compress the bladder and make it a bit more difficult, but it seems to be fine for most people.

What did you do with the blood? You know, you can give it to your house plants or even better, paint with it!
I've been using a cup for over five years and I've pretty much gotten used to it. Although I've become more sensitive lately and I haven't used it in a while, 'cause it feels too big. Maybe I should get a smaller one. Anyway, you can wash it in a public bathroom if you feel confident that you're alone. I've done it, but it's nerve wrecking. Also you can learn where the single stall bathrooms are in your area and always head there when you need to. Or you can just not wash it. Just wipe it with some toilet paper and stick it back in. Or you can bring a water bottle to the stall with you and wash it over the toilet bowl. I've used the cup when I went hiking and camping and that's how you do it in the forest.
It took me a year or two to get used to the cup, by the way. I couldn't get it in at first. After about four years of using it, I couldn't get it out for the first time. It's also very normal. Some women's cervix drops down when they're menstruating and when the cup latches around it, there's no way to squeeze it to release the pressure. You just have to squat and sort of half push it out and half wait for it to slide down until you can grab it.

Anyway, I really hope you'll try painting with the blood some day!

If you’re in a multiple stall bathroom with your diva cup, just bring a bottle of water to rinse it and your hands. Also, it takes a couple periods to get used to inserting the cup properly. I’ve been using mine for months and it’s a real game changer. I don’t have to spend money on tampons or pads anymore! So, win!

Sandra Archer - 15 days ago
I stumbled over these purely by accident. I asked my doctor whether these are any good, but she did not even know about them. So I decided to try them myself. As I stopped throwing in the pill each month, my period got pretty heavy, and I struggled with using both pads and tampons at the same time, particularly at night. With this little silicone thingy, those problems are gone. One emptying each night is enough. What is really important IMO is to choose the correct size. I had one in size large, and it hurt slightly, then a small one, which did not cover rightly (I kept the large just if it gets extreme and gave the small to my daughter). Now I use a medium and I am very happy with it (mine does not have a stem but a ring, which makes it more comfortable). I am very careful with it, so it will last as long as possible. I think it is a really good thing that I do not have to waste as many pads or tampons any more.

No it's about right, it's just big enough to not travel through the vagina, and it's still much smaller than a penis which is literally what a vagina is made for. You should give it a try they're a very great option.

This is great review. I just bought period panties from Amazon and they arrive today. I cant wait to use them, As well as the period cup. Now could you make a video on how was it that you chose the size of the cup... and if you have friends with babys that also use it to add their experience on the video too.
I'll be getting my period cup next period ... I'm excited to try it

Thank you for the bathroom trial because I have always wondered. Being 12 hours worth of usage means probably could use if only a 10 hour day away from home. You are correct about odor being when it is exposed to air. I was going to try one of these cups, but went through menopause just in time to not need any more period products. Now pads are in case of tinkle leaks. Aw, womanhood!

I’m on my second cycle of my cup and I love it so much! After seeing this video I think I want to buy one of the period panties to use for those lighter end days or sometimes sleep. Because as she said it is a bit dramatic when you’re just spotting and the panties are a good environmental and money saving option:) I’m glad there are people on the internet not afraid to make videos like this it makes me happy to see and I never knew I wanted it until now:)

I have been using diva cup for years! it is a great product, but taking it out is a challenge sometimes. If you push (like how you would if you're giving birth) it makes it way easier for it to come out! If you tense up, it is so hard to get it out! And the rotation step is so important because it makes it so that the cup opens all the way.

Thank you for being so open and honest with your body. I wish there were women like you when I was growing up (Im 45). I have such grand hope for all women that we can talk, be open and educate ourselves about all the natural happenings of our body. You leave no stone unturned. I ALWAYS sleep w/ a towel during that week and honestly - that was so comforting to see you do it on screen. Keep up the amazing work!

I’ve been using the diva cup for a couple years now. I felt the same way as you, Saf, the first week I used it. You get so much better at putting it in and taking it out with practice. You also get better at where to place it, which will correct the feelings you had. It changed the way I period. You’re amazing for sharing!

To all of the ladies that find it a hassle for cleaning it in the public restroom : If you purchase a small peri bottle to keep in your purse, when you go to the restroom and want to rinse your cup; simply fill the bottle up at the sink first then go to the stall. After you pull out your cup and dump it, you can then rinse the cup. The peri bottle should give out a gentle stream of water pressure to clean your cup completely. :) I bought one online a few years ago for $2.00 USD. I hope that recommendation might make it more convienient for other ladies.

I LOVE my diva cup. I’ve been using one for years and haven’t once gone back. No smell, limited changing, it even eased my cramping a lot. It comes in different sizes, which could help with the air bubbles. Personally, I go A LOT longer than 12 hours with mine and never have an issue. It’s the perfect solution for a beach day on your period.

late tip: yu don't have to use that brand. there are another types where you can have a longer "stub". also it works with a principle of suction. so it's kinda hard to take out if you don't break the seal. that's how you take it out. pinch the actual cup. then it's easier. it does mean your hands get kind of bloody. and the public toilet thing. my strategy is do it at home and not in public. also you don't have to rinse it every time. I use toilet paper if I have to instead go out the stall to rinse. hope this helps someone. any question hit me up

The drama of removing and re-inserting it gets easier with use, your body adjusts to it. Try pulling it out at the base of the cup, not the stem. I LOVE my cup, I tell anyone who will listen about it and to try it. I have changed it in a public bathroom once.... bring wipes, clean it and re-insert it. Just boil it when you get back home and shower. You are right, there is no odor from the cup since there is no air. I will have to try the Think Period Panties, they kind of freak me out though.

A menstrual cup is one of the things I'm very glad I bought.
As a former pad user, no more worries about the odour, uncomfortable humidity (which made me harder to move because the skin gets very irritated by the fabric) *and* a pile of trash.
It's been only 7 months and I already saved more than $40 by switching, meaning my cup already covered the price of itself a few cycles ago.

im a religious user of the diva cup, but i get rid of the air bubbles straight up by a squish and tug when making sure its inserted to not leak. i have worn it for like 24 hours on the last day of a period just coz i dont like pads and tampons now. iv also only just got the hang of dump and wipe in public bathrooms, just remember to bring flushabul wet wipes

I tried one, and by tried, I mean I tried once and didn't like it. I found it difficult to insert, it felt uncomfortable (I was very aware of something up there), then when I went to take it out, it was so slippery, I couldn't get a grip. When I finally calmed down and managed to get it out, the vacuum seal popped and that bloody hurt. It's a no from me.

I appreciate you discussing topics like women's health on your channel. Your awesome personality shines through each video you have created.
