Diva Cup Giveaway

Once upon a time in 2012 when I was a bitter and intensely crampy Belle, I bought a Diva Cup and a bottle of Diva Cup Wash. I had just had a failed FET and was shocked by how heavily I was bleeding. Convinced that there was never going to be a happy ending to my story, I ordered my Diva Cup in the size recommended for women who have not delivered vaginally and who are under 30 years old (oops, either missed that age notation or was in some hard-core denial when I ordered it!)

Two weeks later two more embryos were transfered and a few days after that I tested entirely too early and saw a squinter. And the rest is history, I guess.

Last night I was going through the bathroom cabinets as step 5,000 (slight exaggeration) of our pre-move purge and found the unopened cup and wash. Was this a lucky cup? Eh, I seriously doubt that. If all our lucky charms worked then we would all be pregnant first time around! It is, however, a perfectly good diva cup and not the kind of thing I want to, you know, have out at my garage sale!

So I thought I’d do a giveaway on Scrambled Eggs and pass it on to another infertile who is still in the trenches and frustrated by the epic flow that follows a bust cycle. To enter, simply leave me a comment sharing how you cope with a bust cycle. I’ll select a random reader on Sunday and announce the winner Monday!

    After 3 busted cycles and a cycle where we lost our embryos in shipping,,,I go throw myself a wine & cheese party. I splurge on a couple of bottles of good wines and a few special cheeses and enjoy the night away! I’m currently 8-9dpo and if this cycle is a bust…there will be a whole lot of wine & cheese in my future!

    Haha, I was wondering when you were going to do this :o) I remember when you bought the cup and we all hoped that you would never have to open it–it’s a magic chicken cup!

    I usually indulge in chocolate and candy and throw myself a pity party! I’ve been at this for over 7 years now and if you add all that up, it’s a lot of candy and chocolate!! Love reading your blog!

    I remember the cup post! I also remembering telling you that I had fingers crossed that you wouldn’t have to use them! Magic chicken cups, indeed!

    Aww… I’m so happy that Diva Cup ended up gathering dust. :)

    I don’t need one myself, but to any other commenters reading, THIS THING IS AWESOME AND WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE! Totally takes away the dependence on tampons and gross pads and leaves zero waste and never overflows. (end product endorsement)

    I mostly handle all of my busted cycles by trying to find something funny or nice in the world and focusing on that. Most of the time that works. When it doesn’t, I take a lot of Advil in the morning and drink a glass of wine in the evening.

    I remember that cup post. I don’t think I can use the Diva cup though… not under 30. Now, I’m worrying about my cervix growing giant by age 45. Who knew that it would grow? It is like hair or ears or something?

    I usually ugly cry for a while, then spend the rest of the day watching The X-Files with a heating pad on my belly.

    I curl up with a good book and lots of dove chocolate :)

    Oh, that cup sounds fabulous! My busted cycle lead to 2-3 months of bloody hell (complete with the obligatory emotional meltdown – sorry hubbs!) This would have been to gave during those times.
