I was sitting in a coffee shop with a friend of mine, telling her how excited I was for my upcoming beach vacation. She asked if I planned to spend a lot of time in the water, and I remember leaning over to her and saying “I do, but I’m… I mean… I’m” I affected a very quiet whisper and leaned in closer “going to be on my period.” For me, that was the kiss of death for my vacation, and it meant I’d be sidelined for pool and beach activities, instead sitting and reading. It was then that my friend did something out of character… she pulled a small pouch from her bag and said, much louder than my initial whisper, “How about a menstrual cup?” and opened the pouch to show me her DivaCup.
