I’d like to warn you men folk out there (um, I think that’s just you, dad). This is a girl post. Like I’m going to talk about menstruating. Unless you have a woman in your life who is currently ovulating and you’d like to offer them really great advice (and they are willing to hear it from you) just move on down the road, gentlemen.
I’ve been so excited to share with you about this new ugh, cup, I’ve been using-the Diva Cup. Apparently there are disposable versions of these little beauties at grocery stores-but this one you can just keep washing and using-remarkable! I’m so excited about this I’m not sure where to start-so I’ll direct you to where I did start-and first heard about-the Diva Cup. First I started here then I went here. I’d also like you to notice that she has a picture of her Diva cup in her photo collage at the top. Very cool of her. The writer of this CheapLikeMeBlog.com is actually a colleague and friend of mine for almost ten years. When she first wrote about this I was really excited-but I was quite skeptical and very unsure of how this would actually replace my tampon usage. Her posts that I linked to above are very informative and I read them over and over as I tried this out last month. Very useful. I also found this article to be quite witty and offer way too many puns on the subject-but it was very fun to read and is also the blog from which I stole the above photo.
Okay, now that I’ve got you thinking about this, I’m going to stop here. I’ll write more later-but too much of a good thing, well, is just too much. I’ve only used it for one round. I’d like to get the hang of it a bit more so will check in with you after round two or three. I have to tell you, though-it was SO nice to pop (well, more like fold, shove and twist) it in and not worry about it all day-once my flow was lighter…okay, more on that later : )
p.s. El Guapo is completely embarrassed that I’d write about this. He just doesn’t understand. I mean, how could a girl keep from her girlfriends such a great source of happiness and freedom!!??
