Warning:  Discussion of menstruation to follow.  Back out now male readers…  I have to share this news with you, my blog friends.  It is the BEST change I have made in female hygiene in my entire adult life:  THE DIVA CUP.

Things changed for me after birthing a few babies and my period was quite a challenge.  I hated my life for a few days each month.  Until, I tried the Diva Cup.  It is awesome.

Here’s why you should try it:

  1. It is tidy.  No leaks, no mess.  Ever.  Really, I promise.
  2. It is fresh.  No odors.  No trash.
  3. It is freeing.  No granny panties.  Wear whatever undergarments you want.  Or, wear none.  Your period is your secret.  🙂
  4. It is calm.  No stress.  No anxiety about how long its been since you went to the potty.  You’ve got 12 hrs. before you need to check in with the Diva Cup.

O.K.  Ask away.  Any questions you have, I will be happy to answer.  My book club gave it a try.  They all loved it too.  It is the best $20 I have spent in a long time.  🙂

PS – It does take a few days to get used to it.  But, after one cycle, I NEVER went back…
