I have used Instead soft cups while dtd during my period to prevent a mess. I am trying to replace all disposable items in my home with reusable ones - are there any reusable cups that I can use like Instead cups to use while dtd during my period? The diva cup looks like it has a little stick thing sticking our which I imagine would be quite painful for my husband

Yeah, I don't see how the Diva cup would work for intercourse. I think that might hurt you as well! Ouch!

You could try sea sponges? A cup like diva would not work - ouch - lol. Usually they sit low enough that nothing else could go inside the vagina. I believe Insteads are the only ones that work during intercourse, as they sit higher. But yeah, sea sponges.
