I've heard about Diva Cups but I'm one of those people who's favourite way of dealing with periods is not dealing with them. I was on Yasmin for years and it was great since it reduced my periods to about four days when they would last for nine and the cramping was virtually non-existent. Also I could predict down to the time and day of the week they would start. However I find they also made me get depressed really easily and anxious a lot more than I used to be and then in February I started getting this really heavy spotting before my periods. I still don't know if this is because of the pill though the doctor said it probably was but it still happens just not as badly. Has anyone had this happen ever?
