Quoting HippieBabie BFTs:" What size do you have? If you have a kid you should get size 2. But I'm not on birth control but I have ... [snip!] ... the diva cup. On heavy days I would empty it every 2-3 hours. Never had a major leak just small staining a pad could catch."I guess that's my issue. I read somewhere that it could hold more than 2-3 hours of blood unlike a tampon thus why I bought it, but it's still easier than a tampon so I can't complain. It'll just be something I empty and reinsert while at work and I'll wash it in hot soapy water once I am at home.
