And I can totally 'spin' my divacup. I fold it, pop it in and then put my finger up there by the rim and give it a twist. "Don't be afraid to reach up there and twist!" I got that tip from my bf.
By day #4 I am sick of putting my finger 'up there' but what the heck, still beats those nasty tampons anyday.
Could not live without it.
It makes your period shorter and lighter because bleached menstrual products cause heavier bleeding and cramps. Since the divacup has no chemicals, it doesn't have that effect on you. Not everybody has shorter/lighter periods but lots of people do.
