The DivaCup (Diva Cup) ... don't buy pads or tampons ever again.
The DivaCup (Diva Cup) is your natural feminine hygiene solution. The DivaCup Natural Menstrual Solution is not a new concept. Since the 1930’s, internally worn reusable menstrual cups have been used worldwide as an innovative and reliable form of feminine hygiene protection. The DivaCup is a re-designed Canadian version made out of medical grade silicone. Designed to "collect" your flow, the DivaCup is non-absorbent - unlike tampons - and therefore it does not disturb the vagina's natural flushing function. Many women that experience severe cramping and/or menstrual discomfort find relief when they switch to the DivaCup.

If you are familiar with The Keeper, the DivaCup is a newer version of a classic reusable menstrual cup and the only one with Health Canada acceptance. There are a few other notably important differences between the Keeper and the DivaCup. Most women find that the DivaCup is slightly easier to insert as being a soft, silicone material it is easy to manipulate. The Keeper is made from latex - while a completely natural material - some individuals may be sensitive or allergic to this.
The DivaCup is reusable, so in just a few months your investment will be paying for itself, while doing your part in environmental conservation. Ideal for all activities - the DivaCup can be worn while swimming, playing sports and traveling. It may be worn for up to 12 hours, even overnight! Easy to wash and insert, leaving only a clean, fresh feeling behind. The DivaCup can hold a full ounce (30 ml) of fluid.

The best kept secret, why didn't anyone ever tell me about this! Review by Leslie

Please forgive me if this is "too much information", but because of the topic (and item) it will be useful. I wish I had known about this years ago!! Pads, and yes even tampons are no longer in my household ( I am the only woman).
The DivaCup allows me to go longer hours before needing to refresh; great for overnight or when in public washrooms. I can pee and swim without worry and an immediate change, because nothing gets wicked/absorbed. I don't have to carry anything around with me (pads, tampons, liners) in noisy packaging and there's no garbage. There is no smell, no need to mask odours. You can even use it when you are expecting your period to start, because you don't have to worry about TSS (toxic shock syndrome). It is easy to insert, and with a little practice it will be quicker than using a tampon/pad. You don't feel it when it's in place (or if you do it's not uncomfortable). It is very sanitary, simply wash and reinsert.
Honestly, there is no way I would ever go back to using a tampon or pad. Never again do I have to rush to the store to buy more tampons/pads, or make sure I have enough tampons/pads with me when going out or travelling!! I've saved lots of money already. If you have a period, then this is the best way to deal with the flow. Easy, convenient, reusebale, discreet. My husband doesn't even know when my period starts, unless I tell him ;) (Posted on 6/30/10)
No more tampons! Review by Lorraine

I LOVE my diva cup! I used the size one for a number of years before the birth of my daughter and am now using the size two. There are so many advantages to using the diva cup I don't even know where to begin. Once you get the knack of the diva cup it is soooo much more comfortable than tampons - and you don't need to worry about using the right absorbency level or changing it every couple of hours. If you are concerned about dioxins in tampons or the effect of women's sanitary products on the environment, give the diva cup a try! (Posted on 7/1/10)Would you recommend this product to a friend?

AMAZING Review by yogajenni

This does take a few cycles to get used to but once you have I promise you will never go back to pads or tampons again. The initial cost seems like it's a lot but I was spending that every 2 or 3 months and I haven't bought anything in almost 2 years! Amazing! I love it and recommend anyone with a period should try it. I will certainly be introducing this to my daughter when she starts... in like 10 years!
I would echo Leslie in that my husband now has no idea when I start my period unless I tell him. There is nothing icky in the garbage and I never leak so no blood in my underwear either! Amazing and great product. (Posted on 11/3/10)
This makes my periods so much easier! Review by CINDY

I only wish I had this cup many years back, because it really does make my monthly cycle more comfortable. It does have a learning curve, but it is SO worth it. I am one who reacts to the plastics in commercial pads/tampons, so I am thankful to have a great option.Would you recommend this product to a friend? Without hesitation!
I pair my DivaCup with a cloth pad at night for the perfect bulletproof system. No more waking up to leaks and embarrassment in the middle of the night. I did need to trim the stem of the Diva with nail clippers - this is the way to go to avoid any sharp edges. I have since heard that you can also turn it inside out and I might give that a try in the future!
When out, I just dump into the loo and pop it back in without any issues at all. But most of the time there is no need to even do this as it holds more than a pad or tampon. Since you can leave it in for much longer (up to 12 hours I believe), in the last days of my period I feel like I'm not on it at all! Best of all, I have no more reactions to sensitive areas that I had with plastic and paper feminine products. (Posted on 1/3/11)
I got my life back :) Review by et

I hated this time of the month! But not anymore! Thanks to this little discovery. And my 16-year old daughter started using it and she has never looked back. My 14-year old is hesitant but I think she is about to give in :) Especially after a camping trip when she could not go swimming when the older sister could ;)
I never pushed it for them, just showed how it works. They really have to be very comfortable with their bodies. It does take some time to get a "hang of it", so don't give up. I'd say at least three periods. After that you'll almost look forward to this time of the month :D
I have several friends who started using it after I sent them a link about the menstrual cup. Don't hesitate, try it. And if you like it, please, don't keep it a secret! Talk to your friends, so that they can get their lives back :) Word of mouth is the best ad. Otherwise you'd think there are nothing more than pads and tampons. I truly regret that I discovered the Diva Cup so late!!!
It all sounds very much like "as seen on TV", but it's true :D (Posted on 9/10/11)
Buy one! Review by Morgan

I've been using a DivaCup for years, and I've never looked back. I used to have to double up, super absorbency tampons and overnights pads for my three(!) very heavy days. Now I don't even use a panty liner. I use it swimming, doing yoga, running, and never a drip. It takes a try or two to get the hang of inserting it, but once you've got the trick of it, you'll know instantly if it's not in right. (Posted on 11/27/11)
