Find out What Happened when I switched to the Diva Menstrual Cup
I used tampons for years, but always kind of hated them. I don’t know if I was hanging around the wrong people or something, but I didn’t even know about the Diva Menstrual Cup until I was in my early 30’s. When my friend told me about it, I immediately went out and bought one. I’ve never looked back.
Here’s what happened when I made the switch. But, for more details about the most popular menstrual cup in the world, you’re going to want to check out our Diva Cup Review.
I Saved Lots of Money
Okay, so I initially felt like the Diva Cup was a bit expensive at around $30 USD. It’s just a little piece of silicone after all.
Then, I realized that I was NOT dropping the five bucks on tampons every single month, and I felt really good about having spent that money.
Seriously, you can have years of savings. Although the company recommends replacing your cup every single year, that’s a little bit ridiculous and most people don’t do that.
I Felt Good about Not Throwing Away a Bunch of Plastic into the Trash
Tampons. I felt like I was always throwing them into the trash, along with the little bits of plastic wrappings. It’s probably because I was.
Once I switched to the Diva Menstrual Cup, I stopped sending all this stuff to the landfill. And I rested just a little bit easier knowing I was reducing my ecological footprint.
It Leaked Like Crazy
Okay, so when you first try out a menstrual cup it’s probably going to leak like crazy. It did for me. It was frustrating, annoying and made me feel like giving up. Why even bother, I thought to myself. I have to wear a pad anyway.
But then I Figured it Out
Over a few cycles, it got easier to insert and remove. It also leaked less. And now it’s mostly solid, with only the occasional leaking. Love it, mostly.
