My name is Jess, and I have been a proud DivaCup user for a few months now. For the past few years, every time I’ve been in a store that sells The DivaCup, I’ve had the urge to check it out.
Before trying The DivaCup, I had to stop by the drugstore more than once per cycle to pick up tampons, pads and pantyliners. These cost me at least twenty dollars per cycle because of the heaviness of my flow. The thought of buying one product that would enable me to stop going on tampon runs for an entire year was extremely appealing to me, but I was really nervous to pick the product off the shelf and bring it to the check-out clerk, for fear of being deemed a ‘weirdo’.
I was also afraid The DivaCup might feel like applicator-free tampons, which I had tried previously in an attempt to reduce the waste created by my periods. I found them to be even more abrasive and messy to use.
Nevertheless, I finally tried The DivaCup after I had enough of irritation caused by pads and having to use pantyliners and tampons together due to leakage. Nobody likes the feeling of sitting in wet underwear all day and having to devise schemes in order to disguise one’s tampon or pad in a pocket-less outfit in public.
I am not the type of woman who has much extra time or energy to get attached to particular brands, but I now recommend The DivaCup to all my girlfriends. I am so incredibly grateful to be able to have the comfortable, clean, convenient period solution that is The DivaCup. No more rashes down there, no more hiding tampons under my shirt to use the public restroom, no more guilt over huge amounts of waste created by my tampons and pads, no more leakage, and best of all, underwear no longer necessary at night!
As a teacher, I no longer spend my recesses changing my period solution, and as an outdoor enthusiast, I no longer need to lug around a period bag on long hikes.
The product is reasonably priced and works like magic, and it gives me peace of mind about the environmental impact of my cycle.
Thank you thank you thank you! I used to change nasty tampons every few hours and now I almost forget that I have my period!
I don’t understand why every woman doesn’t use The DivaCup.
