anyway... that's what those things are! i swear when i was younger i saw an infomercial on it and never knew what it was. so... it it unhealthy? cause if your body is getting rid of waste and that's up there collecting the waste but it's still inserted? i'm still puzzled... sorry if i just made no sense there at all. i'm still thinking beer bong! hahaaaa
It's actually healthier than tampons. Tampons can shed little cotton fibers, which can stay in your vagina and breed bacteria. The keeper/diva cup is non-absorbant, so there's no risk of that. In terms of the fluid staying in your body for a while, it's not any different than tampons. I mean, you still empty it. I find it's mostly health nuts who use it because they are environmentalists or don't want bleached cotton shoved up there!
MissPookie, I really do swear by it and so does everyone who's tried it on my recommendation (and that's over 5 people). I really do highly recommend it. I left it in my other house once and messed up my pills and had to use tampons... it was awful. I would not want to go back.
One thing is they say to leave the little rod thingy at the bottom for removal but you really don't have to. I cut mine off entirely and that is totally fine.
