What are they made of? I would be more concerned about the effects of petroleum-based materials on my body even than landfills. I am purging plastic in my home now.

diva cups are made of silicone. There's more info about what there made of and how they're made (and environmental effects) at their website.

Trust me, the silicone is a LOT less hard on my body that even the pads I used to catch possible overflow (usually wasted pads too)

time to go to my LYS

good ole H2O2

I got mine at "Choices" and it was about $36.

I use one, rinse it out with warm clean running water
re-insert, and go
my MOST heavy days I have to empty every 2-4 hours
I have a SCAREY heavy flo
then between cycles I soak in H2O2 after washing with soap and water
one is enough

I don't really post here all that often but I wanted to add in my two cents. I've been using the Diva Cup size 2 for about three months now and i'm never going back to tampons!! I purchased mine at whole foods and ordered another from http://www.southcoastshopping.com/?p...8b8fc8194eb592 it was on sale so for the Diva Cup and the cleaning solution I only paid about $25 with shipping, as a bonus they were really quick with shipping.

I had never heard of the Diva Cup until I seen this thread. I went to Whole Foods and got one for $32. I have to say that I am totally suprised. I am the biggest skeptic when it comes to trying new things. I have used it for 1 cycle and I love it! I had no trouble putting it in getting it out (lol). The directions in the box are very easy to understand and follow. Also, I usually have very severe cramps the first 2-3 days of my cycle but, I had none at all using the Diva Cup. If you are skeptical get one! It will be the best $32 you ever spend!!

I also wanted to add that it is totally awesome that all us ladies can talk about these thing and give eachother advice Thanks to everyone who wrote about their expeirence without you all I would have never known this existed!!!

This is my first time using the Diva Cup, and while it works great, I have an awful time getting it out. Not exactly getting it out, but when it reaches the rim, no matter how relaxed I am OUCH! Any suggestions?

you mean when the edge of the rim reaches the opening of Uu vgna?
or when ur finger reaches the rim of the cup inside

I know for me, i just pinch the bottom, and pull it out, then the rim kinda folds itself a bit and I edge the upper edge of the rim out first so it does not spill (until I dump it, ya know?)
