It is nice to find a capsule with 10mg. Before, I had Melatonin gummies that were only 3mg for a serving of 2 gummies... I had to freaking suck down 6 of those puppies a night. Plus the gummies got in my teeth. These are great. One pill to swallow as I wait for sweet, oblivion -er, I mean, sleep to take me.
They come in adorable designs, are super comfy, and make me feel like I am doing my part to save the planet, one period at a time. Sometimes they slip around a little, but it isn't that major of an ordeal. I use them as an emergency barrier while I have my menstrual cup in. So far, no leaks!
First things first, I ordered these because I live in Japan and have been craving me some Poptarts. iHerb ships to Japan, quickly and cheaply. Also, the website accepts yen. Woot! The fact that these toaster pastries are organic and don't contain ingredients for anti-freeze, like Poptarts, is a plus too. Taste-wise, these puppies are kind of like blueberry fig Newtons with a little more crunch and icing. Which means, they are pretty freaking good. They definitely aren't as sugary and addiction-inducing as Poptarts, but they also won't kill me. So all in all, Nature's Path got it right.
I haven't tried it yet, but the product shipped quickly and is handy for a single lady, like myself. It is actually pretty handy for any housesold, really-solitary or otherwise. The fact that this comes as a powder to be added, allows for greater control of portions/amounts. I prefer it to the standard stock/broth cubes. This way I can make smaller portions of soup for me, myself, and I. I don't like to share soup.

I recieved this puppy a while back, and have used it through 2-3 periods now. It works great. No need to worry about leaks or running out of tampons. I pair it with the GladRags reusable pantyliners just to be safe, though. It can be a little intimidating and/or painful to insert and remove the first few times. It can also be pretty messy. Your best bet is to remove the thing in the shower. That allows for easy clean-up. Sometimes you can feel it moving/slipping down, which is super weird feeling. However, it is about the same feeling as when your tampon moves around a little. I usually just go to the restroom to push it back up and into place. While a lot of these things sound like cons, they really are minor once you get used to them. Also, they are completely insignificant to the freedom of having a Diva Cup. You are reducing waste, reducing your monthly expense for period supplies, reducing your chances of Toxic Shock Syndrome, and increasing your feeling of leakage security. I would have given it a 5/5 if it wasn't such an adventure to first get the hang of the thing. I researched quite a bit on the whole procedure of the thing, but every woman is different. Therefore, while the advice is helpful, you will still need to just learn how your body works with the menstrual cup.
I prefered the original Azo Yeast, but the Plus is still pretty good. I take it as a regulator if I start to notice things getting a little... out of sorts down there. It keeps things even and working like they should.
