So our local HFS has finally started carrying menstrual cups -- I don't remember the brand, but it may be Diva....
I have resisted the urge to try them based on reading so many experiences of newbies who have problems or women who couldn't get it to work for them at all. I had resigned myself to using cloth pads the rest of my life, and was fine with that. Then summer hit, and DS can't get enough pool time. I hate the pool, so for the past few years it has been very easy for me to avoid it for a few days here and there when needed. Not now. We go in(to a pool, any pool, ours, community, friends', etc.) EVERY DAY, often multiple times a day. I have to go in with him; this is not optional. Sooo..... I'm thinking about buying a cup. (I can't really use tampons -- describing the issue would be way TMI, but I just can't.)
My concern is that if it doesn't work, I'm out a LOT of money. I mean, it's not like I can resell the thing on craigslist (or anywhere, really). If it were $10, I'd gamble. But I hate the idea of spending so much money on something I will only use a few times a year and that has a high likelihood of not working at all for me.
Talk me into (or out of) this!
