I bought the DivaCup seven months ago after a couple of years of using Instead Softcups. I found the Diva Cup through the Dodson and Ross blog and thought it sounded like an excellent idea. I am thrilled with not having used feminine products in the waste basket. Though the cost was a shock initially, I know that it has saved me money in the long run. I love not having to dash to the drug store at the last minute. I am a convert for the rest of my reproductive life, when this one needs to be replaced, I will definitely be back!
