I'm really not sure what you wrested away from your dog, but if it was able to be confused with a yogurt lid it probably wasn't a diva cup.

Diva cups are a full silicone cup, about an inch across and a couple inches deep, and they really shouldn't be going in the trash; they're reusable.

Mine did come with some special 'sample' disposable silicone rings with plastic over them that were one-and-done called menstrual discs which might be what you're thinking of? Their big advantage is not taking up much space in the vagina for mess-free sex during a period.

Pretty sure that's a diaphragm, which is a form of contraception.

Well it was covered in blood, or at least what the dog left on it :(

I touched it with my hands and held it up to my face to smell it because I had no idea what it was

Not a diaphragm, that absolutely is a menstrual disc. Do not expect them to provide contraception, but they're disposable, low footprint, and apparently comfortable. They unsettle me, I haven't tried them. The menstrual cup is in the bottom right, reusable, but the size makes them uncomfy for some folk.

Edit; Also sorry you had to deal with that. These things really should be less taboo so it's not such a baffling 'what the fuck is this shit?!' surprise when a product ends up somewhere it shouldn't.

Dogs and trashcans I am so familiar with, 'cause a dog I lived with managed to get a tampon string wrapped around her teeth and was choking on it in her throat after she got in the trash.
