The DivaCup Menstrual Solution
The DivaCup is Reusable - Ecological - Economical - Reliable - Easy-to-use - Comfortable - Convenient - Odorless
*** The DivaCup Model 2 is recommended for women who have had vaginal childbirth or c-sections; and for women who are over 30 years old and never had childbirth. See detailed information below to choose the right DivaCup Model for you. ***
Back in the 1930's the innovative menstrual cup was invented as a form of internal feminine protection. The DivaCup is a modern version of this proven concept that has been redesigned with the latest technology in moulding and materials.
It is made of soft medical grade silicone, which is latex-free, 100% hypoallergenic and odorless.
Since The DivaCup is reusable, it is very economical. As well, you can feel confident that you are doing your part in environmental conservation. Landfill and pollution problems are on the rise and continue to be a worldwide concern. In 1998, 7 billion tampons and 13 billion sanitary pads and their packaging made their way into landfills and sewage systems in the USA alone! With The DivaCup, you're saving money and the environment -- while getting unprecedented protection!
The DivaCup is very sanitary, comfortable, reliable and convenient. It holds one full ounce (30 ml). Since the entire cycle is an average of 3-4 ounces (90-120 ml), most women find that the cup is not even half full after 12 hours.
The vagina is continually self-cleansing, washing away dead cells and bacteria. Tampons absorb the natural fluids that we need to keep the vagina clean and moist. The DivaCup is non-absorbent and simply collects the menstrual flow, leaving the natural moisture level in the vagina undisturbed.
Depending on your flow empty the cup 2-3 times per 24 hour day, wash and reinsert. It can be worn up to 12 hours, even overnight. The DivaCup is ideal for all activities including swimming, camping, backpacking, and travelling. It is suitable for all menstruating women of all ages.
The DivaCup is available in two models:
Model 1: for women under 30 years old who have never had childbirth or c-sections.
Model 2: for women who have had vaginal childbirth or c-sections; and for women who are over 30 years old and never had childbirth.
The Model 1 cup is 1 5/8" (~4 cm) in diameter and the Model 2 cup is 1 3/4" (~4.5 cm) in diameter. Both cups are around 2 1/4" in length in the body of the cup, with another 3/8" stem (2 3/4" total length). The stem may be trimmed to adjust to your comfort level.
There is not a big difference between the two sizes (Model 1 is 1/8" (~0.3 cm) smaller), but it is important to use the recommended sizing to prevent leakage.
We recommend Model 2 if you are over 30 years old because as we age, our hips naturally widen and the vaginal muscles lose elasticity. Since it is the vaginal muscles which hold The DivaCup in place, it is important to use Model 2 if you are over 30, even if you have not had a vaginal childbirth or c-section.

Wash hands and The DivaCup thoroughly prior to insertion. Fold in a tight "U" shape. In a comfortable position, insert The DivaCup in vaginal opening until stem is even with the vaginal opening and does not protrude. Your vaginal muscles will hold it in place. Pinch the base of the stem and give the cup one full rotation in either direction. Can NOT be worn during intercourse and is NOT a birth control device. The DivaCup has never been associated with Toxic Shock Syndrome.
