What’s Using a Menstrual Cup Really Like?

Menstrual cups are gaining brand recognition as the third option women have when it comes to their periods. BuzzFeed recently invited four women to try the Diva Cup (a brand of menstrual cups) throughout their periods.

From the get-go, the reactions were varied. Some of the women questioned the size (it was bigger than expected), some wondered how to insert it and where it went after it was in (because many didn’t feel it).

The women were all captured on video throughout their periods and underline the pros and cons of switching from a pad or tampon to a menstrual cup.
