I also looooove my diva cup, but the first few times I used it it did leak (took me a little to get the hang of) so be forewarned.

I like my Diva Cup. Definitely has a learning curve though. Use a pad/liner as a backup the first little while. :P

Insertion is tricky for most folks at first, and some people trim the tip a bit if it irritates them. That said, not having to buy tampons and stuff is amazeballs, and cleaning/maintaining it is easy. You only should replace it once a year so you're saving tons of moola.

I want to get one of those.

So I'm three weeks into the Aviane and I'm still not sure what to think. I've been having issues sleeping, which means I'm cranky as a wet cat. I'm not sure if it's the pills or having a kitten who likes to start chewing on my ears at 3:30am. At the very least I'm not ballooning up with weight gain nor have I broken out into cystic acne, which were two other commonly mentioned side effects.

That is what happens to me every. Single. Time. I take any kind of BC, I gain a bunch of weight, break out in acne (& not just on my face), my normally "old faithful" like cycles become horribly unpredictable & just generally feel like crap & become a hormonal, raging bitch.

So I have given up on oral or "chemical" bc & just use condoms ... Plus I don't think I could never be ok with putting all those synthetic hormones in my body.

My vent for today? I put flea stuff on the dogs sans gloves & I can't FOR THR LIFE of me get the darn smell off!!
If there are any typos, it means I am on my phone LOL

Thanks beanie. I only have another week til me 6 weeks are up so I'm just going to wait. Even so I am going to try to find backs like you're talking about.

So. My hair. I've been growing it out for over a year now. It has not grown. At all. I have had it trimmed, but other than that have not actually cut my hair. I think it's actually shorter than when I started. And a lot of this has to do with breakage. It breaks off all.the.time. It's really bad, too. And I don't know what to do. I really need advice. (Also I recently ombréd it and used bleach which probably didn't help but it's still soft and looks about as healthy as it did before bleaching it. So idk.)

Right now my plan is stop brushing it. I'm planning to go buy a wide toothed comb, and some anti-breakage rubber bands, and comb my hair out in the shower every night while its wet, and braid it over night so it doesn't tangle.
Don't fear tomorrow.
