I'm curious about the DivaCup on MC trips.
I'm a dude, so obviously I've never had the pleasure of experiences this sort of this, but I do have a friend who's used the DC for years and being the enviornmental hippie I am, I think it's an awesome idea.
What concerns me, though, is if they're really good for this sort of off-road adventure riding trip. I mean, it's been so long since I've been with a woman that I barely remember what their internal anatomy is like, but it seems like activities like off-road motorcycling, or horse racing, or downhill mountain unicycling could present the possibility of the cup shifting, or tipping, or spilling. From my mind, the DC seems better suited to non-vacation times, and some sort of hormone patch or something that postpones menstration for a few months would be easier.
I'm not sure why I even opened this thread.

I was pretty sure I didn't want to know what a DivaCup is.

And Google proved I was right.

I'm glad this was bumped. Too much good info not to. I'm not an off road rider but I do hope to spend a good bit of next year on the road riding cross country and Canada. Gonna try to have fun and raise money for lupus research/awareness. Thanks to all that contributed. I'm going to get my notepad now.

Not all women are created in size 6. For those of us who aren't, Junonia makes some great travel garments and underwear. They're expensive, but well made and last forever. www.junonia.com

great thread! y'all are a great resource!

some things *i* don't go on a big trip without:

* lip stuff (will someone please invent an applicator that will work without removing helmet/gloves?)
* custom earplugs
* qtips
* a buff - keeps collar, wind, and sun from turning neck into raw meat
* facial wipes repacked in a zip-lock bag (if they get dried out just re-moisten with h20.)
* my SPOT & GPS

things that do NOT go on the bike:
* anything cotton (except q-tips! ;)

Wow awesome! :) I've never been on a long distance ride, so this is a very helpful thing to read! Nice to see another lady adventurer as well.
Happy riding to you!

Btw I totally agree with the previous Seasonale/Seasonique comment. It's a lifesaver when you're on a long vacation and don't want that inconvenience. Just my 2 cents. :)

One of the blessings of menopause.... But if I were younger, I would sure consider Seasonale myself!

You can do the same thing with regular BCP's. Just skip the last week (placebo or progesterones) and start the next pack right away. Up to 3 packs in a row (9 weeks) can generally be performed safely this way. However, some women do experience spotting between and heavier bleeding when they have their period.
