Periods are really taking the spotlight in the news lately, but most ladies don't want their period to be drawing attention on a daily basis. The Diva Cup is a relatively new invention from 2002 and the gospel has been spreading. Basically, it's a soft cup you can insert inside yourself during your period. It catches your blood, then can be washed and reused. You save money and produce less waste.

The biggest struggle for most of them seems to be getting the thing in, but once it's there, a Diva Cup is like carrying around a little secret all to yourself!

As one of these ladies says, "I'm out of panty liners, so the stakes are high."
