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??
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.
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
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
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
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 ;)
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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. :)
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! :)
Allison Daughtry: If you had multiple cups and threw them away when they start smelling would
teallaidh: Thanks for making this video, i'm defo not getting one, the cons outweigh
Laura Ramos: I have been using the Diva cup for two years now and I love it. Saves me
money, helps the environment, it is very comfortable and if you just take a
bath in the morning and change it then at take a bath at night and change
it everything should be perfect. It is not gross. Furthermore, I have never
experienced those odors, maybe you had a yest or bacterial infection.
Rosedale1: In ref: to your detox comment: You probably realize, at this point, that
you detoxing and wearing tampons is a contradiction. Tampons, on their very
label, warn of their toxicity. Whatever you put into your body, on your
body is absorbed into your bloodstream...so tampons are not a good idea.
Christine Strauss: Thank you for being brave and discussing such a delicate issue. I tried a
menstrual cup two or three cycles years ago and had a different problem
that made me hate those things. No matter how I tried to put it in I found
it horribly painful and it leaked a lot. I actually had to soak sheets,
jammies etc in cold water in the washer and use lots of enzyme cleaner I
got from the vet that I used to clean up after my cats to rescue my
clothing and such. Now I use washable tampons and home made pads and wish
I'd started doing that to begin with. Best wishes to a very brave lady.
Nunya Bizinezz: So brave and informative. Thank you.
BCubensis: b v is cleared up with medication, it only occurs if you wash your hair in
same water or use soaps, it is your good bacteria fighting the bad that
they put in shampoos or bath essentials id advise to wash in natural things
only and wash hair separate from bath or shower, even shaving foams , i
stick to this and have no problems now but did suffer a lot.
Olurazhidaan Mbotu: Very brave. Thank you for being so honest
thepeiwitch: thank you 4 sharing great advice
Jaquelynn Roque: You shouldn't feel embarrassed or anything. It doesnt work for everyone and
this is your story. Thank you for sharing your experience because i was
thinking of the diva cup but i may re think it now.
4answers: Dont be embarrassed. I thought it was a helpful video so i thank you!
LarniPhoenix: What music are you playing ?
Ro Dorsey: Did you boil it? I found that helped a lot with color and odor.
PD S: Thanks for the info, but the background music is extremely distracting. No
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!
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.
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
