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
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.
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.
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.
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.
hale Kitty: lmao 5:36 doe XD
monkeysluvdani: thanks for the info. Im having a hard time deciding if I should try this
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??
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
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 ;)
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
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.
blaq rose: Brave sharing your thoughts. Also, people with latex or silicone allergies
should watch out. Labeling everything green has become a tread now. On this
one, we should throw this idea out... or soon women will be sitting on
holes 'to save the environment'
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!!
memekitty343: it takes a strong woman to use themselves and their experiences, to educate
the not so brave of us..... thank you
Hannah W: Thank you for posting this, I didn't know bacterial vaginosis was a thing
until I saw this. Don't be embarrassed!
mabbeech: You don't have to change your tampon every time you go to the bathroom!
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.
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!
Haneefah Myers: just found your video. did you have any problems with leakage... or feel
uncomfortable sitting down?
EricaStar: I appreciate your realness.
Nekedra Thomas: GIRL. I BELIEVE YOU. I WAS THINKING IT IN MY HEAD AND YOU WAS SAYING IT.
THANK YOU!! LMAO!!
Imani Brooks: I can't pee pee with a tampon on :(
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.
NeasTube: Just in case you ever want to reconsider using the Diva cup... here are
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
Angel Gonzales: Why should a guy exit? Men have the right to be informed. This is why women
are ashamed of having their period, when they shouldn't be ,because a lot
of men are immature when it comes to our cycle. Most likely because they
are not educated. Don't discriminate on who gets educated on what.
Elizabeth Vasquez: Taking a garlic pill once a day will take care of any yest infection!!
Garlic is a natural antibiotic so taking that keeps anything at bay if you
have a yest infection, staph infection it will keep the staph away the over
bacteria growing will keep it at bay and you won't have to worried about
what she is talking about you will be good lol
Jenny Reno: Thanks for the info!
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.
Ellen Turnor: I've been using the cup for months now, probably closer to a year... I boil
it for 10 minutes (using a small pot separate to any in the kitchen... not
in with the soup) right when I first get my period for the first use and
rinse it with an antibacterial wash about once a day. When I first started
using it I noticed I was only washing it with soap and water and noticed
towards the end of my period for a couple of months there I developed
thrush... Can I ask if you boiled it at all and if it was rinsed with
antibacterial liquid during at all?
MelodyPondswansong: I would say try boiling it in water between cycles, and scrub it with a
toothbrush and gentle soap (which no one will be putting in their mouth,
obviously). I do the toothbrush thing to get the color off and I boil it to
get the bacteria off, because it did smell a bit. (I've only used it
through about 4 cycles, so that's what's worked for me so far). :)
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
LocaChoca: What was the soap you used to clean the cup, or was it possibly not
sanitized properly? Maybe boiling the cup for 5-10 minutes could help with
the cup's odor retaining problems.
Rosedale1: Im not trying to be mean but you were classy up until you started cursing.
Woman to woman: it is not attractive.
Jessica F: Thank you for that very informative video, I found it to be very helpful. I
hope that you find something that you like for yourself in the future. :)
SFBL1: I don't think Layman's Terms means what you think it means....
LeannaT: 12 week old collard greens I'm laughing so hard, that sounds awful!
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.
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!?
Alix Kayy: I simply use pads.......
AliciaFiasco: I'm not sure if it was sanitized right if there was an odor. Maybe a doctor
could help with that because that sounds biological.
Hope Irons: I'm still using the Diva Cup and I haven't found it irritating my BV very
much/at all. I do use Rephresh gel after my period, so that may help you
and anyone else who struggles with BV.
samantha comer: U rock hun
Juliette Savvy: Team tampons :D
Elizabeth Wiecken: This has probably been said but were you cleaning it properly with a PH
balanced soap? And were you boiling it after every cycle? Sounds like you
didn't care for it properly.
Esperanza Jimenez: This woman never gets to the point!
Shelly Lubin: Thank you for sharing
Wendy E: Never ignore bad things about a product that is going to go inside of your
body. That's why I've not got a Diva Cup, or a Mooncup, too many
complaints about the material causing irritation or injury. Still hasn't
put me off of using a cup, but there are a lot of companies out there with
product that has a better track record.
Teresa Setterlund: I use Soft Cups, disposable. So you use 1-2 a day, you can have them in for
up to 10 hours (I've gone a little longer at times). I've never had
vaginosis, so I can't say that this other style of disposable cup would be
any better for the foul order. But if you're regular, I've loved the Soft
Cup so far! :)
