No one you know: Wait. Girl. Wait....Do you think you pee out of your vagina??? LOL
You didn't have to waste all those tampons by taking them out before you
pee. You can pee with tampons in XD. What in the world would possess you to
change your tampon EVERY THIRTY MINUTES??
oprecious14u: You are very informative :) personally for me I prefer pads. I just don't
think anything man made is suppose to be stuck up in the vagina for hrs. I
let it flow out freely on a pad idc if I gotta pay or if I change it a lot
I just don't think sticking stuff up there is healthy ever ;)
Laurissa Lewis: Thanks for making this video! ! I was considering trying this but I am very
sensitive to yeast infection and BV even tho im not sexually active seams
like if a start a new body wash my vigina gets some kinda infection lol but
I have sensitive skin to so it's not a surprise but I have never had a
order problem, but taking into consideration my sensitivity I dont think I
xStephism: You may not like the smell of apple cider vinegar, but deluding it and
pouring it on the vagina will help clean you not to mention it's
multipurpose, you can use it to wash your hands, body, fruits, any surface.
It'll help will smell and bacteria, not to mention clean the cup.
dynodish: I tried using the cup, but, my vag is too short. The stick thing almost
sticks out and it's uncomfortable. I know people who love them though.
Abby Girl: I think you need to see a doctor. Diva cups should not be causing what you
describe. Ive had BV and I never had a foul odor as the one you describe.
Allison Daughtry: If you had multiple cups and threw them away when they start smelling would
A girl named Paige: I wonder if there was a foul odor.
Nunya Bizinezz: So brave and informative. Thank you.
JALEOB ZIRAB: I wonder how many females who's out there that don't know how important it
is to keep your menstrual cycle , a secret ,, something prompted me in
this direction to the moon cups,, im a very sensitive person,, when the
thought of moon cups came to
mind ,, ouch ouch is what I said ,, I've alwavs used pads I thought they
Jessica W: If you have bacterial vaginosis you will know because you will smell like a
fish. And it's not something that should be ongoing. You have to get it
taken care of with a prescription of antibiotics from the doctor. And yes,
you can get bacterial vaginosis from having sex -having sex with a new
partner or having rough sex etc.
4answers: Dont be embarrassed. I thought it was a helpful video so i thank you!
Ro Dorsey: Did you boil it? I found that helped a lot with color and odor.
LarniPhoenix: What music are you playing ?
xoxoCookiesx3: Honestly, I'm still unsure if i want to use this because I'm afraid... yet
i still brought it. So even though i have the symptoms you mentioned, i
still am willing to try it because of how much flow i have :\ Thanks for
PD S: Thanks for the info, but the background music is extremely distracting. No
Bhudda51: Its unfortunate that you had that experience but based on the MeLuna
menstrual cup site "Unpleasant odors can be prevented. the cup should be
removed every 8 to 12 hours. Some women have reported temporary changes of
smell, which are likely due to various proteins in the blood. A menstrual
cup may suddenly assume a different smell, although it has been cleaned as
TIPS for special cleaning problems
Usually odors disappear when you place your sterilized cup in a dry,
well-ventilated place for several days. You can also place the cup few
hours in a glass of denture cleaner, or sterilize with in vinegar or
boiling salt water. Cleaning very hard to reach places (such as the cup
holes) can be done with an interdental brush".
I hope you give any menstrual cup another try, I really feel menstrual cups
are the most eco friendly, healthy and affordable feminine products
available. More people should use them and know about them as an option.
thatJess Chick: Thankyou for this. I have never heard of these until like 20 mins ago so I
started my research. Now I know ill never ever use one!!
TangledWeb: I don't think the menstrual cup had anything to do with giving you BV,
unless you didn't sanitize the cup properly or wash your hand before
inserting. Most likely you had some sort of untreated (and undiagnosed)
infection that got worse because if wasn't treated. You just happened to be
using the cup. Also, any sort of foul odor is not normal. Every person has
a natural scent, but if it smells foul or like fish it's definitely a sign
of a problem.
Abigail Velazquez: Thanks for your honesty
Caroline Bellemare: That is such a fair review. You are not looking to bash the product without
explaining the reason why you had a hard time with it (like so many other
videos out there), you are simply honest and giving out good instructions.
I never heard of BV before. Thanks for sharing, take care!
Moneka Grinston: The way how you was exiting everybody . you should've never said it with
the faces you was making and the way how you was saying it .. It Really
makes you like if you have a freaked up attitude
mishapsofbecca: hi, if you are worried about wasting tampons try cloth pads. they are so
much comfier than disposable pads and you can just wash them and reuse
them. for more advice go to Precious Stars Pads on youtube
bcori1999: If your sick and take an anti botics it can remove the good and the bad
will take over.
Imani Brooks: I can't pee pee with a tampon on :(
Christina Safeline: I give you credit for making this video. I think you are a very strong
woman for talking about that all. I think you should try Insteads/SoftCups.
They are like diva cup but are disposable. Theres different kinds some that
last 12 hours and others you throw away after every cycle so at least you
aren't using the same device for months on end.
Raquel Carter: hey if you have an odor you should use baking soda + water in a douche
Nunya Bizinezz: So brave and informative. Thank you.
Fatima Alhameli: for smell just boiled water with lavenders ... sure after it cool down :*
tekoya: I'm a little confused why in the earlier part of the video you said you
changed your tampon every 40 minutes, could you please explain?
beth9015: Did you have vaginosis bacteriana before start using it? or did it happened
after? I mean, do you think it was due to the cup? Sorry, if my questions
are too personal. I'm just starting using it and I watched your video and
now I am worried I could get an infection.
Cheyenne Kemp: Bree from precious stars pads mentions a great sanitizing product for
menstrual cups. I'm not sure what it's called so if you're interested in
the product I recommend going to her channel to find out.
You might want to invest in Vagisil wash with Ph balancing properties, it
helps balance you out.
Leissiel Lyys: I cannot use menstrual cups nor tampons because I'm still a Virgin (with
intact hymen) I only use disposable pads or cloth pads.. so this menstrual
cups are use by non virgins .. why would someone stick a thing inside their
QueenOliveen Stimpson: Thank you for your honesty & vulnerability. Vey helpful.
SeXiLaVilleValo101: Thank god someone else acknowledges bacterial vaginosis. I am a chronic
sufferer. I thought this would help me with it. I have been with this for
it 6 years and because of getting my period I got it. No doctor is helping
me and I have been suicidal because it consumes my life
Alyssia Hargest: So refreshing hearing a confident woman communicate about health issues.
Periods shouldn't be a shameful topic - half the population gets them!
Thanks for sharing your honest experience. Also, if you haven't seen it,
this is an amazing TED talk on the power of being vulnerable!
CheerAndBeauty PaigeChloe: i got told that you dont have to change your tampon everytime you pee!?
Oban: Thanks for your honest and hilarious review and putting yourself out there.
I get thrush from time to time, and you just need to use Canesten pill
inside overnight, and cream for a few days. Sorts out everything quickly
esp. the smell. You can get it from the pharmacy, though I don't know if it
has the same name in the US.
HopeElayne: Oh crap....I have one in now 0_0 lol
But I don't have BV or a vaginal with odor. To be honest, anyone who
experiences this should go to the gynecologist right away and get tested
for BV. This is a foreign object, although medical grade silicone, that is
inserted into the vagina. All women are different when it comes to "down
there". Simple natural occurrences such as sex or your period can cause BV,
because both affect the pH of the vagina. BV does not necessarily mean an
overproduction of bad bacteria... When the pH is affected, more good or bad
bacteria will produce and thrive. It is VERY important to thoroughly clean
your cup and hands before removal and insertion. I boil mine for five
minutes! I wash my hands while Dial regular soap under hot water.
Heather Moore: im pretty sure i have bv and i was wondering if u ever sanitized the cup by
Rachel Ilene: Thanks for sharing. I've been doing a lot of research about menstrual cups
lately. And one of the things I've noticed the most is that women who rave
about cups and knowing their bodies don't realize that you don't urinate
through your vagina but through your uretha. So you don't have to take out
your tampon to go to the bathroom! Yay! Sorry cups didn't work for you.
Thanks for sharing your story! Hope you can stop changing your tampons so
much when you go to the bathroom now on though! Thanks!
Maryam Lautner: You can pee with a tampon on
ladieessence: I'll just stick with Kotex pads. Lol
Stephanie Lucas: You are so BRAVE! Thanks for sharing :)
BTW another reason I'm sooo glad I've gone thru menopause and I don't have
to fool with that anymore - my periods were a NIGHTMARE!
Kat Johnson: I just started using something similar and I love it, however whenever I
rinse it out, I have nothing stopping the flow and I start dripping before
I can put it back in. Any suggestions on how to stop this!?
leccah: Dear god I did not realise that this thing existed. I have never seen them,
or heard of them in Australia. I'm a 'pad' person, to me I think tampons
and this cup grosses me out. But I totally undertsand everyone else point
of view. Most people are the other way around to my views in regards to
that time of the month. I'm trying to get my head around the thing. Like do
you get leakage? I am totally naive about this product.
Angelina Joy: Have you boiled it to clean it? Similar experience but not bad at all
(yet). I'm only 4 months in and plan to boil to sanitize it better.. I was
soaking it in HOT water with female cleansing soap and that helped some!
May need to look around for more info on boiling it for a few minutes!
Natasha Doriscar: water in vinegar when start to smell bad.
Bongtasia: Thanks for being Frank (=
Amada De Jehovah: BV happens to every girl alive. if you havent get it, it will happen to
you. is nothing wrong to talk about this in public so other females know
what could happen if you use this products. People are not thinking outside
the box when buying stuff for your vagina....... BV can even happen to
young girls who havent had sex. so please talk to your DR. about it before
criticizing other peoples stories.
