I've only had mine a month, but I have to squat right down, which I find a bit annoying, as I could just change my tampons while sitting on the loo.

Whoa whoa wait...people stand to put them in too!? Well I can't wait for my next period!


i am another in the demi-plie insertion camp. when i first started, i pretty much always had to put one foot on the seat because i wasn't really comfortable with it -- but i haven't done that in ages.

When I used to use tampons, I would demi-plie 50% of the time, and sit the other 50%.

I kinda want someone to say they insert/remove their tampons in this position:

I stand tot put my Divacup in but I sit to take it out. I wish i could change it in the shower but because of all the water it never fully opens when I put it back in and leaks.

I love this thread so much. Has anyone else ever left in a tampon and forgotten about it for an embarrassing amount of time?

If I could also take a picture, I'd have too many hands. Or too much talent.

i love showering right after changing a cup (or when i used to use pads/tampons)...i like being cleeean. the cup is really clean, and i'm happy, but i should try this.

It totally depends on the applicator for that. Those cardboard ones that they typically have in those bathroom dispensers - I don't even bother, I can't do it. The plastic ones hurt a lot less, and the applicatorless ones are the same amount of hurty for me, dtbk. I think it's friction.

I find I need an applicator when my flow is light, but I just go with the cardboard ones. I get freaked out by sharp arrow points on the plastic applicators - plus I feel guilty buying the plastic ones.
I've thought about using a little lube to ease with insertion.

I insert and remove in the famed demi-plié. I'm really baffled by this sitting thing. It reminds me of the wiping thread. Are you sitting sitting or just squatting/hovering? I feel like you must be sitting for the tampon swing to hit the toilet, but then how is there enough room between the toilet and your crotch to even maneuver a hand?


I sit far back on the seat and point my toes (tippy toe). I can insert standing, but it is not as comfortable. Removing, no way. There is too much gripping involved. Talk about friction!

I love my diva cup. I will never ever ever go back to tampons/pads.

The other day I dropped a full DivaCup on the bathroom floor though. There's a phrase for that: INSTANT CRIME SCENE.


OMG yes. I will only use the thing if I can time it so I can remove it in the shower. I am not graceful about removing it and it can become a missile. Why can't there be a better way!!!!

Ok, I had to roll in here to mention this:

Yesterday I was in one of my school's libraries and went to go to the bathroom. Someone must have emptied a divacup in there because when I went into the stall it seriously looked like someone had been stabbed. It took me a second to realize what probably happened (I'm a tampon user).

I really miss my diva cup.

Did anyone ever solve the mystery as to why the fork diva cups stop working properly when you have an IUD? Once it was the perfect solution, but now it is just leaky. I'm pissed.

Do IUD's have a tiny string/wire/something that pokes out of your cervix? I seem to think they do, or maybe I'm crazy. IF they do, then maybe that is breaking the seal and causing it to leak. OR, maybe the procedure or medications caused some swelling or the cervix or something, which is also breaking the seal (temporarily)? Just educated guesses. If it's not those things, I have no idea what it could be, very perplexing.

I sit to insert and remove tampoons. For some reason I have to be super relaxed to put one in and I would have a hard time at work if someone came in the bathroom while I was taking care of business. I only really used them when I had a heavy flow, and my periods aren't that bad anymore-only first two days, so I mostly use pads unless it's a plug-worthy period.

You know what's even grosser? When the pee-string gets caught in your butt crack while wiping and then you have to root around your crack for a wet string. I haven't used a tampon in years and I still have nightmares about that.


wahh. Anatomy is so unfair.

When I was younger, I left bloody tissues on the counter more than once. It proved my nastiness (Hey counter, hold this vagina trash while I clean up) as well as my forgetfulness. Whoops.

I'm a sitter, and I don't use applicators, so maybe that's why there's enough room for my hand? I've never had to touch the toilet or grip anything while I was inserting/removing my tampon. There's always been enough room for my, my hand, and the little stick of cotton.

As for cups and IUDs, it's something to do with the suction and how you break the suction (or seal? I don't use a cup and am a little fuzzy on the terms); if you do it a certain way (the wrong way, basically), it can make an IUD expel.
