Can I ask what might be a really daft question? How does the blood not spill when removing the cup to empty it?

I just purchased a pack of 6 online. I'm going to try them this month. I hope they work, I'm bored of waiting to conceive. I just wanna start growing my baby goddamnit!

I have used the softcups for AF (once didn't really like it for that purpose) and used them for this cycle of TTC. When I tried using it for TTC I found that if i sat on the toilet or squatted in general the contents of the cup spilled. I had almost ruled them out when one day I put a softcup in while I lay down in bed after sex. I found it was much easier to insert it in the correct way from that position. I have not had any spillage since.

Yes, as much as the one in the video - but not as well as a mooncup I wouldn't say.

The mooncup goes in at 90 degrees to the sort shown in the video... so it creates a seal with the vagina wall.

(I was the biggest skeptic, now I'm the biggest convert )

I just bought one of these today (couldn't stand the 3 week wait to get the softcups online) and I got it at a Natural Food/Products store. On the website for the Diva Cup there is an international link that gives suppliers for all over the world if you're outside of Canada and the US. It's www.divacup.com. Good luck.

You'll love the diva cup! I swear by it and have used it for 3 years for AF. I have yet to try it for baby making but will try next time around.

I'm a little nervous about trying it for AF but I'll do anything for baby making, lol. Wouldn't it be a little messy for AF???

The soft cups are super messy but the diva cup isn't bad. It's because it holds it in until you "dump" it which makes a big difference.
