Diva Cup Review UPDATE! My Horror Story!!




What do you think about this video?

Luvly Ren: Thanks for sharing this! Making this video may have been difficult for you but, I have nothing but respect for you. At the end of the day, each woman's body-- although sometimes different-- is also the same in many ways, and what one woman has gone through, another may be experiencing. I applaud you for choosing to help inform other women and young girls about the things magazines choose to gloss over. xx

Ari Ellington: You were wasting money on tampons because you didn't realize that you DONT need to switch them every time you go to the restroom... 

InternetDJ1677: You don't have to change/take out a tampon when you go to the bathroom. Urine does not come out of your vagina.

Andy Fashol: I know this video is old, but that object was never the reason why your Vagina smells as horrible as you said. You have a over growth of bacteria that needs to be treated. Any smells or discharge coming out daily is a issue. Please take this video down, its not educational. Your bf knew he's nasty! Unprotected sex may have been the cause, not a plastic cup for your cycle.

ReeseBaby06: It sounds to me like the bacteria was building up because your flow was being collected. That is not the cups fault. It's simply the fact that your vagina had so much bacteria buildup. Bacterial vaginosis requires medical attention. I know this video is old but I really hope you went to your GYN and got that taken care of. BV also has very similar symptoms to STI's which is why its important to visit your doctor anytime something doesn't seem right. There should be no FOUL ODOR whatsoever coming from down there. This is a bad sign.

ChelleEve: I know that talking about this made you vulnerable BUT I want to thank you. I have been using disposable cups and was considering getting one that is longer lasting. Due to the fact that the disposable ones smell (about as bad as a tampon, anyway) and the explanation you put forth I will not be purchasing a silicone cup. I am already extremely self conscious about any odor and waste my body produces and wouldn't be able to handle it, emotionally, if I were in public and realized my vagina had a disgusting odor. So again, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for potentially saving me this shame.

Sharleen C: You do NOT need to change your tampon every time you use the restroom! Tug on the string a little and if it moves easily it is time to change. You're creating a lot of waste and wasting money changing it every hour or so. 

Kristina Dorsett: Wow, thank you so much for posting this. It does take a LOT of bravery to put your "business" out there for the public to see, but you really are helping people. I have a BS in Microbiology and everything you're saying about discharge is totally legit - everyone is different and it's more important to know how your body naturally works than to ignore it and be embarrassed. If you ignore your body, how are you going to know when it's not working properly? It's great that you mentioned oder, too. I was having a conversation with my roommate who is a nursing student about menstrual oder and how it can be terrible to the person on their period but other people don't notice it at all. Personally, I just started using disposable cups before deciding on a permanent brand. I have always had a lot of pain with my cycle and recently a gynecologist told me that tampons and pads can cause irritation that leads to more cramping and overall pain. Thanks for giving your opinion.

Cheebs1982: One word to women suffering BV... ACIDOPHILUS!!! It saved my life. I have terribly violitle natural pH levels and my flora has never liked me. Has nothing to do with anything but my NATURAL chemistry. BV IS NOT TREATABLE. Unless you're going to shove yogourt up yourself. Antibiotics destroy your naturally occuring bacteria cultures and WITHOUT good bacterial cultures women get yeast infections and BV. So no.. it's not treatable. 

YoungZioness: we're all girls here lol thanks sis

SFBL1: Why are you SO FREAKING AGGRESSIVE starting off the video? The things that you were warning against had nothing to do with me, but I couldn't even get past the first 20 seconds of your video because I was so freaking annoyed by how you were talking to your viewers.

CACHET LOVE: great video. dope idea they created. i prefer ultra thin pads stayfree overnights..however infinity pads are incredible at the way thhey draw so much of it underneath and inbetween that it leaves the seat almost clean. cleanliness i wash in and out regular bases gently.. LADIES WITH ANY OF THOSE SYMPTOMS PLEASE PURCHASE %100 TEA TREE OIL VITAMIN AISLE 3-4 DROPS IN A PURE WATER DOUCHE. HANDLED.. #PEACE

Amanda Nichols: hello have you ever tried the softcup-they have been around since I was a teen in the 90's and I always used them!

MARY ORTIZ: Thank you love that was very informative :) very brave

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 ;)

Lashonta Favors: Thank you for this because as a female we all act so #Taboo about talking about our natural bodies that's made to go through all type of changes! Know Ur bodies and urselves #AppreciateIt 😘

Kristi Russell: If you have BV, YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE DOCTOR AND GET ON AN ANTIBOITIC, you are not just stuck with it, Flagyl will get rid of it almost as soon as you start taking it. Sometimes just getting your period will throw off the balance of good bacteria in your vagina and you wind up with bacterial vaginosis . I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH, YOUR VAGINA SHOULD NOT HAVE AN OFFENSIVE SMELL, IF IT DOES YOU NEED TO GO TO THE DOCTOR. Do not just live with it and subject yourself, your partner and everyone around you with an awful stench. Sometimes a vinegar douche and inserting some pain yoghurt at night will restore the balance of bacteria back to normal, if that doesn't do the trick, go see your doctor. I don't mean to be blunt but kitty SHOULD NEVER SMELL FISHY, OR YUCKY!

Charlie Edwards: thanks for the info. not a lot of people have the guts to do that

C. Ray Chapman: Thank you for making this video! It was very informative and I really appreciate that you're so honest. I was curious about the cup, but I don't know anyone who has used one personally to ask. All the videos I found up to this point were so positive I was wondering if they were paid to advertise it. Thanks again!

NeasTube: Just in case you ever want to reconsider using the Diva cup... here are some tips: At the end of each cycle, clean the cup with soap and then put it in a place where it can get direct sunlight (on the patio, in a window sill, between sliding glass doors, etc). The sun will naturally bleach away any odors & stains. Secondly, clear up the BV issue by eating **raw** garlic twice a day for a couple of weeks. Just cut it into minced pieces & swallow with water if you can't handle chewing it. This will kill off bacteria and pretty much anything else hampering your immunity. Follow this up with a 30 day course of probiotics to balance out your body's good and bad bacteria. Menstrual cups are much better for your body than tampons, so I hope this helps.

Anna Bjarnsteinsdóttir: you do realise that periods are not supposed to smell and if they do you very likely have some sort of an infection or something and should see a doctor! the reason periods tend to smell while using disposable menstrual products is because the menstrual fluids react with the chemicals in the pads/tampons. But a menstrual cup is free of all chemicals so it's not supposed to smell at all!!! They are much better than disposables in the sense that when you use them you are able to detect (like you did) when something is wrong. If your menstrual fluid smells while using disposables it's normal but if it smells while using a cup you know something is wrong!

Brittany Blakeley: "Sort of what we do when we're in relationships," ha! Yes! Thanks for this. (Damn I just read the comments and holy crap.. So many girls think we're built the same way or something. So many arguments about "Well, it works for me. I don't see any reason it shouldn't work for anyone else." Like what? Really? You don't change your tampon every time you pee, that's cool. I don't like pee to be soaked into my tampon. Our bodies are not all the same.

Missy Lyn: Thanks for sharing! I don't think I'll be trying this after your review. I only have periods when I'm highly stressed due to being on the implant. I thought this would be a way to not have to take up space in the cabinet with boxes of tampons, but it really doesn't sound like it will work for me. I do have issues with what you mentioned, and I don't even want to think about what you had to go through. And for those saying crap about her changing tampons after using the restroom, sometimes it just happens. Everyone's body is build different. I have the same problem, it's not a matter of moving the string out of the way.

Karyn Husarik: It's hard to talk about our bodies, and even harder when it involves something we may find embarrassing. Just wanted to say thank you for sharing your story. I have a similar issue and it's always nice to know you're not alone. 

proverbs3130gal: Thank you for sharing your experience! I haven't read all of the comments, but it could be that you simply developed a reaction to the material of the cup and caused the imbalance in your vagina - hence the odor. I have my own vagina story - for almost 5 years my husband and I have used the same brand of condoms. sometime this past summer I started to get monthly yeast infections, the first sign would be painful intercourse. I'd have to stop because it would feel like my skin was tearing (it was, there was a tiny bit of blood each time)! I'd think "great, another yeast infection!". The pain was getting worse every month, and the yeast infection would last longer. By the forth month in, I was terrified to have sex! Pain! and I was terrified of having another painfully itchy infection. Well, it turns out I became allergic to our condoms! 5 years, no problems, then BAM! Oh God what a relief! We switched to latex-free and I've been infection free since! What was happening would start as an allergic reaction (irritation, swelling, tearing), then develop into a yeast infection (*cringing*) which would take forever to go away because of the irritated skin and usually right around before my period (too much moisture to heal). Total vagina nightmare. No woman should ever have to dread the natural occurrence of intercourse and menstruation.

tatymerary: How many saw white house commercial no hate back off haters

Fashion Dues: How can anyone look at you differently. You are helping and informing woman. Any woman that takes this differently is immature and isnt worth a response. I never knew this existed i just found out about this on a review website. Thanks for sharing your story

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. 

Danielle Freeman: i would never look at you in a different way,for telling your honest feelings

Ofeliyac Volkova: The vagina does NOT "produce" bad bacteria.The vagina is naturally odorless, the only things that cause odor is diet, & overall health, which is what causes bacteria in the first place.Everywhere on the entire body simply has bad bacteria naturally, all over the skin, the anus, the colon, the intestines, the anal and intestinal area is full of yeast and many other bacteria, etc.It just gets there because the bacteria feeds on the sugar, salts, & oils the body produces from the sweat gland, the allele G gland predominately resides in 99% African Americans, Indians, 50% islanders, 47% of europeans, & 70% of Americans, which produce immense Sugar & liquid, which is why they have usually foul body odor, because they naturally have more of these sweat glands, & they are in clusters in certain areas, & bacteria feed on the sugar, which causes the foul odor, wheres those with Allele A sweat glands have less sweat glands overall, & also reside in the areola, unlike those with the Allele G, & the Allele A gland does not produce any sugar, & unlike the Allele G, the Allele A glands are more widespread along the body, Instead of being in clusters, & they naturally have less & thinner body hair overall, especially less genital and armpit hair.They sweat less in general, but its not just sweating less, its that the glands are more widespread, so its not vast amounts of sweat on particular areas of the body.Also, to clear some things up: "Good bacteria" is actually just your immune system, the immune system is what keeps you from being killed by all negative intruders.Though the bad bacteria is not actually problematic naturally, it doesn't usually accompany negative side effects in generality, the only time it becomes an issue is if your immune system somehow gets suppressed.The infection you are describing, as well as every other infection, is when the bad bacteria becomes an actual issue, which is when the bad bacteria has increased, causing negative effects, burning sensations, odor, and the good bacteria (aka your immune system) start "fighting".This is when your immune system is killing the bad bacteria.When an infection occurs in the genital area its because bad bacteria are somehow getting inside the genital area, which is usually because of a woman having promiscuous sex, men naturally have immense varieties of bacteria on their genitals, and the bacteria not heir pencil gets inside the vagina, and the immune system will naturally respond at first to any new, unusual intruder, but if its with one person over and over, in a healthy environment, not with random different men that could have not shower in a long time, the immune system will naturally get used to it, and realizes the bacteria are not harmful, the only way you will get an infection is when the bacteria are harmful, if he hasn't showered for a while or did not properly clean his genitals, or if you are having sex with many different people, and/or are inserting toys that were not cleaned properly.

Qwazier3: Maybe your body chemistry was not compatible with the silicone or whatever material the cup is made of. I personally bought the throw away ones instead of spending the money on a keeper because I wasn't sure I'd like it. Turns out I didn't. My insides didn't like the foreign invader and I became itchy. We're all very delicate up there and little things like that cup can upset our balance. Thanks for sharing. I know it must've been very tough to put that out there but this is what You Tube is all about. We can't due proper research about things if nobody talks about their experiences. 

queenie6000: I found that the Rephresh PH balance tampons work very well if you have haf BV or it's symptoms. Drink lots of water also.

Casi Parmer: I would like to add that if you ladies are having trouble with BV (and it seems to be a bit of an epidemic) do some research on a lactobacillus probiotic as a suppository. Yes, the same that have a cellulose capsule that you would use to take orally. This can be purchased in any Drugstore and the capsules (if cellulose) will dissolve in the body and provide a more balanced environment in your vagina. I have had problems with yeast and BV throughout my entire womanhood until I found this solution. Thank you for your honesty and sharing. I hope this can help. I am not giving medical advice, just personal experience. 

ariel herbert: thank you for this review! im interested in getting this but im concerned about the side effects like these. Your so brave to come out & tell us of these symptoms , thanks again :)

Gina Plopper-Norton: i'm planning on trying a "flowdome" after i start my regular cycles again (i'm on mirena implant so i dont have periods anymore) bc i HATE pads and tampons. a friend of mine told me to try lots of Menstrual cups and not judge any of them based on another bc they are so different. but I dont think i have any BV problems either. i'm so so sorry you had this experience. thank you for being brave and putting this out there.

Apr Wood: You are a brave soldier,I never heard about it until now. Thank you for sharing. I know this helped many.

jessy babby: +kristi Russell fresh urine is sterile 4+ hours of urine sitting inside of the vagina on a tampon breeds bacteria

mrzrollins: Thanks. I'm considering The Keeper. Fyi BV can be tx w/ Metrogel for those who said it's un treatable

Violet Lavender: Discharge is a normal thing with the vagina though, isn't it? I don't have any of those other symptoms except slight discharge Would it still be okay for me to use it?

Soledad Avomo Engonga: thank you girl..... dont feel vul because all you did is help all of us with less guns than you. Great source of courage. Kisses from Moroco

Monique Boea: Was the smell due to your BV problem? I want to try this. Did it leak at all?

Liliya Melnyk: You have BV and you need treatment.

lililta howard: Thanks for sharing nothing but respect for you

Chasity Campbell: I am so thankful for this video. It gives me more to think about. I was just about to try to order it online. I have the same issue and this definitely helps shape my perspective. 

Sabrina Smith: Um, it sounds like you need to go to the doctor more than anything else, because the medical grade, non porous silicone can't MAKE your vagina smell. It seems like you may be one if those women who used scented tampons for so long it messed up your pH. Unless you have a reaction to latex cups (you didn't specify in your video) that would produce an adverse reaction in people who are allergic (like myself).

Alden Malloy: Thank you so much for your honest review! this helps me HEAPS.

Kawaii Homemade: I heard that if you boil it that the odor goes away. Have you tried that? I prefer pads because I don't like the feeling a tampon or a cup. 

Aletha Oberdier: Thank you for sharing this. I am prone to BV and so I've been hesitant to try the diva cup etc. This makes a lot of sense. thanks & wish you the best : )

Starr Killer: Why in the world would you have to take your tampon out everytime you go to the bathroom? You do know that your pee comes from a separate hole than period blood right?

Amanda Crook: Have you tried other brands? It could just be a reaction to the silicone... maybe a rubber one?
