Okay, maybe someone can explain this small mystery to me. Why is it when my period comes, my flow is the lightest on the first two days and then heavier on the third? Then when the fourth day comes, it disappears and doesn't come back until the next day which is also a heavy day. I mean it--no joke. It literally ceases to be on day four almost every single month. Every once in awhile I have a three day period where it simply doesn't come back after the M.I.A. fourth day. Are the aliens breaking into my bedroom and stealing the contents of my vagina after the third day of each month's period? Hey, it's as good a theory as any, I figure.
I've been considering ordering the DivaCup. I'd heard of latex models of the same sort a long time ago but as I am a bit allergic to latex, it was never anything I could make use of. A few days ago, I came across information about the DivaCup which is made of silicon instead. There wasn't time to get it before this period but hopefully I'll be able to find an authorized retailer near here soon. I'm a bit leery about ordering one online. If anyone out there has used the Keeper or the DivaCup, I'd be especially grateful if you'd drop a comment in my box and let me know about any pros and cons you've experienced. I'm really allergic to most brands of maxi-pads and I'm only able to use the two brands I currently buy with the use of liberal amounts of diaper rash ointment as a barrier between my skin and whatever chemical concoction they make commercial maxipads from. Still, my body has taught me that sometimes it's best to leave well-enough alone. Any info, suggestions or warnings would be great. After all, what the manufacturers have to say is not exactly objective.
