Diva Cup Review UPDATE! My Horror Story!!




What do you think about this video?

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.

dexterdamonkey: thank you for this video. it's very informative, and you don't hear this honesty when you ask for advice from retailers or friends.

IntuitiveHeartHealer: Sounds like you're suffering from PTMCS -- post traumatic menstrual cup syndrome

Salma Nassif: thank you so much for the review u are big help

Carla Spears: "If it was mad at me...",That cracked me up! You'er hilarious! And brave for talking about this on the internet! I doubt I could be as brave as you so thank you for sharing! I'm subscribing! Thanks again for the tip!!! 

Melody Dubrovsky: thank you so much for this video. you have no idea how much i needed to know all of 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.

cypressunlimited: but isn't it fairly easy to treat your bacterial vaginosis? just a dose of antibiotics or a cream? normally it should not be a problem that happens that often... if it is i hope you get checked out so that you get healthy again. i really like my meluna cup and have not had any problems with it, eventhough i am prone to infections. but i also changed my diet a year and a half ago and found that that helped me a lot. No more urinary tract infections and i used to have them every 6 weeks or so for 5 years.

kbbbb7: Thank you for talking so openly about this product and sharing your story. Women need more women like you who will talk about their bodies and experiences around women's health issues. They want answers on issues that seemingly nobody else will discuss openly, something substantiated by this video has getting 100,000's of views. I learned several things from your video that no doctor has ever mentioned, nor at school.

Erika Haines: The DivaCup is not comparable to Nuvaring because it is not birth control. Also, it does not cause any unpleasant odor, in my experience. It is made of the highest grade medical silicone which is latex-, BPA-, and fragrance-free; not to mention, when inserted properly, the blood collected is not exposed to external air like with pads, so the blood cannot oxidize, which is what produces odors during menstruation! Maybe you should check with your gyno as this could be due to your menstrual flow, and not the cup. The pros are that it is far less harmful for you than regular or even organic tampons (no residue/fibers left behind inside you), less harmful to the environment (just think of the waste you would otherwise allow to accumulate in landfills over the one-to-ten-year lifespan of the DivaCup - 21 tampons/month on average, or 252 tampons/year, or 2520 tampons/decade - versus having to throw away ONE cup per each few years or decade!); and finally, it is significantly less expensive than pads and tampons (especially the higher quality organic ones) which over one year can cost anywhere from $70-$120, and over ten years can cost $700-$1200! One charge of $30-$40 is a much better price point than $700-$1200 for something that could last you ten years...

JesusFTW777: Maybe it was that you left the cup in for longer than the recommended time? I've read other stories from women who left the cup in for 12 hours or longer having a strong foul odor.

Darlene Vincent: Of course, now that I'm perimenopausal, I hear about the cup.

DemstarAus: Have you tried other sizes/flexibilities? There are other brands that are softer and different shapes (taller like a champagne glass or wider like a cognac glass). I've never used a cup before and I'm interested in trying one... can I just ask what you would do every time you changed it? From other reviews, they say that if you clean it properly each time you empty, it is anaerobic and therefore supposed to at least prevent more bacteria growing, or reduce it. I'm not criticising because I have no experience, just want to know why maybe that happened to you...?

Gloria Wyble: BV can happen often if you are sensitive. I use to get it every year. My OBGYN doctor visits were getting expensive and she only had temporary fixes. After 5 years I switched to a new highly recommended OBGYN doctor who only had temporary fixes as well. However this new doctor referred me to a specialist and this specialist was remarkable. No medications needed. The specialist said a good kept secret that most doctors don't know about is that BV can be caused by fragrances in your soaps, lotions, detergents, fabric softeners, and pads; as well as certain clothing materials (like nylon, spandex, polyester, etc). Follow these easy steps and I promise you, you may never get BV again! Her tips have changed my life forever!... ·Use non fragrance sensitive soap by the brand Dove. ·Use non fragrance and non dyes detergent by the brand ALL free & clear ·Use distilled white vinegar as your fabric softener (in the washer during rise cycle) ·Use non fragrance lotions like the vitamin e or oatmeal by Suave or St Ives ·Use cotton panties only ·Wear dresses and skirts more often than tight pants or jeans ·Steriles your diva cup after every cycle. I think the instructions say to boil in hot water but I like the Milton solution solvable tablet idea. ·I prefer the disposable Softcup by Instead rather than the Diva Cup. It's cleaner and easier to remove. However Softcup does provide reusable cups as well. ·If you have to resort back to tampons and pads, buy the organic brand by Nutracare (normally found at your local Sprouts or Whole Foods) Please let me know if these tips were helpful, and if they worked for you! Good luck!

Ally G: You do not have to take a tampon out every time you use the restroom...?

Kimberly Kandhai: Crazy but this video made me subscribe to you. The realness is refreshing 

Diane Mboyo: Mine is a moon cup and I just love it! never had any problem. Your vodeo is very great! thanks for all the info stay blessed

Lauren Thompson: I totally love my DivaCup. Haven't had a single problem with mine, but I think every body is different.

Reina Paloma: I could see a benefit using it when going to a water park or he beach or something.. lie just 4 a day

Lynnae McClelland: Absolutely nothing wrong with this video. It happens to women. I think i will still give it go! 

Ruth Sarfo: Lol! You know you country when you compare a smell to collard greens! lol I love it though. I was thinking about switching to this product because I defintely thought it would be more convenient and money saving but I have my concerns especially with bacteria vaginosis. Thank you for your review and I guess I'll be sticking with my "waste to be stuck on [me] all the time" aka pads LOL!

Yvonne Dalton: Hi, I've been using a Mooncup and a Ladycup for about 3 years now, with no problems. I always keep the cups in Milton solution (made from soluble tablets) to keep them sterile between emptying times at home. So, I take it out, rinse it, then take the clean one out of the Milton solution and insert that. I put the one I've just rinsed out into the Milton, and change the solution at least once a day.

FruityChris C: I'm sorry to hear you had such a bad experience. I have been using mine for over a year and haven't had any problems with it I love it. The issues that your having you maybe want to try using a pH balanced wash and lotion for your girl parts it can help to balance out bacteria and reduce itching and odor. You can get those at any drug store in the female section.

Otium Serenitatem: Great video. I have been thinking about getting a cup, and have seen several types. I think I will go with the natural rubber. What has me most concerned is learning that the tampons and pads are now made with GMO cotton that has pesticides in them! The left over plants killed the cows in India that ate them! This stuff is NOT safe.

FreshEyes22: THANKS for the video, girl..

queenofcrows: Thank you for your courage and strength in posting this very personal review!

Natalie Cornelison: You are sooo brave for doing this review! Kudos for being so honest!!! :) 

911ambulancegirl: Thank you for putting yourself out there to help your fellow ladies! I give you MAD props for that! I don't know if I would be that brave... You are my HERO! =)

chrissyiceicebaby: I really loved how well put together this video was. Perfectly detailed information and review on the Diva Cup. I look forward to more videos by you.

CatsBCool: I noticed she said she changed her tampon every time she went to the bathroom. You don't need to do that.

melzfit: And I subscribed!

stalkingself: Looking into switching from using Always pads and learned about this product...but im leaning towards the cloth pads. Informative video, thanks for uploading :)

Hayley Robinson: my doctor told me these are better if u suffer with thrush or vaginosis as there more hygienic than other products

Kittybearxo: I wonder also if a woman had a yeast infection during her cycle and was using the divacup...would she keep reinfecting herself if she put the divacup back in? 

Honey Lox: Your honesty is appreciated 

Dawn Wilkins: Oh, btw they do have disposal ones. I forget what they are called. I'm just learning about all of this

Trish Bachman: Maybe you should have taken care of your problems before. Try some women's probiotics. Klaire Labs makes a good one. Don't you realize that tampons keep your blood in you, too, plus they have tons of chemicals? 

StingingSnow: if the diva cup is made of plastic, or rubber or polymers.... i don't want that crap inside my body anyway. (has anyone watched Plastic Planet?) plastic is awful for the body on so many levels

Trish K: Thank you for a true honest video!

Kimberly Reid: Have you started using it again? Have you experienced any more problems with it?

laurnias1213: Why did you replace your tampon every time you peed? I just place the string out of the way and it stays dry if that's your problem

Teresa Wiley: Thank you for this video. I'm just now researching these type of feminine products. Have you found any other cup that didn't give you the same experience? 

Socially Awkward: I agree, pads are kinda gross. It feels like wearing a diaper

London Goatburger: I feel like this should be called the "Big Sister" part of Youtube.

strangertobluewater: Thanks for this review. I recommend using boric acid suppositories (google for more info) around your period. It will rebalance your ph and bacterial vaginosis will be a thing of the past. Fem‑Dophilus capsules inserted vaginally are also helpful.

mimosa pudica: thanks for your review!!!

Abby WL: 12 day collard greens!!! - LOL Thank you for sharing. It was personal, yes, but it is something a girlfriend would tell their friend - and this is stuff we need to know. I was hesitant on trying the cup - so thanks for your take on it.

alice smith: Im scared of the size... I find inserting super tampons uncomfortable... so I don't know how id go with this... does it stretch you?

Maggiemarvelous: The brand that is sold at my local health food store is natracare. They are an organic company so it is safe to assume their line of feminine hygiene products is fertilizer pesticide and chemical free.

ashley09044: im just gonna stick to pads..
