The DivaCup is a reusable, bell-shaped menstrual cup that is worn internally and sits low in the vaginal canal, collecting rather than absorbing your menstrual flow. Menstrual cups have existed since the 1930s when women were searching for an alternative to the choices of the time. Yet, its breakthrough into the feminine hygiene industry is much more recent.Many women feel uneasy about changing their menstrual care routine. Years of dealing with the sights and odors of disposable tampons and pads cause the familiar reaction: “ick!”. The DivaCup empowers women to connect with their bodies and menstrual cycles like never before. Perfect for all activities (on air, land or sea), its easy care and use make for a better period experience. Wear The DivaCup for up to 12 hours without leaks or worry.
From the manufacturer
Diva Cup Diva Cup
Whether you’re a junior in high school, junior associate or a coach of your daughter’s junior little league team, The DivaCup will fit into your life, not the other way around.
The DivaCup is available in two sizes, Model 1 and Model 2. Your cup size is stamped on the inside rim of the cup. There is a small 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.
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.
Model 2 is recommended if you are 30 years old or older, even if you have not had vaginal childbirth or a c-section because as we age, our hips naturally widen and the vaginal muscles lose elasticity.
Because the vaginal muscles hold The DivaCup in place, it is important to use Model 2 if you are over 30, even if you have not had children.

Yes, the cup makes my work-outs a joyful experience now.
However, objectively, this cup is not for everyone.
The capacity is lower than a number of other cups and the Diva itself is longer whereas many people may require shorter ones. (I've been considering getting a shorter/higher capacity cup for my first two days, then using Diva for the remainder of my cycle when my cervix moves back up. Yes, your cervix moves during your period. This is normal. The Diva is good in that it's less likely to ride up higher if your cervix is higher due to its longer length making it easier to pull out.)
There is also a learning curve people may find irritating. Completely understandable. A cup isn't meant to be shoved into your vagina. You need to fold it first, insert it (aiming toward your behind, not straight up; you need to get it past your pelvic bone), then jiggle it until it "pops" open, ideally still aimed partially toward your behind before you adjust. (Adjust by gently - emphasis on gently - wiggling and pulling to verify that your cup is vacuum-sealed in there.)
For those exhibiting pain such as one of the 1-star reviews I read, you're likely opening your cup too close to the vaginal opening/front of your body and are hitting your urethra. Hitting your urethra hurts, so try not to do it. It'll take practice, but it's worth it. If this isn't the problem, then you may need a smaller cup. Also totally fine and normal. We don't all have cookie-cutter vaginas.
To get the cup out, you don't tug the stem like a barbarian. Doing so may hurt you. You stick your thumb and index finger in, squeeze the bottom in to try and break the suction and wiggle it closer to your vaginal opening, then you move your fingers in higher, curl the cup into something resembling a U shape, and pull it out. Remember to pull down. If you pull forward, you may hit your urethra and if you've read this far, then you know what that means. Ouchie!
The blood can be dumped into the toilet, the cup rinsed/washed, and re-inserted. (It's recommended to carry either a water bottle or a second cup in public places if you anticipate needing to change.) Diva is fun in that it includes millilitres, so you can see how much blood you're losing between changes, though keep in mind that blood isn't the only thing you're losing. Other vaginal fluids will end up in there, too.
One common point of confusion is leakage (which can happen, especially if you're inexperienced and/or leave your cup in too long), then you pull the cup out to find that it's only half-full. Remember, the cup is inside. So is your cervix. Your cervix can (and in my case, sometimes does) lower itself into your cup or end up there during insertion, stealing some of its capacity. This is normal. It just means changing more frequently.
My period is relatively light, so I get away with 3-4 changes in 24 hours, but sometimes, you need more. Again, we're not cookie-cutter vaginas or cookie-cutter bleeders. This will not be true of everyone.
In conclusion, if you are investigating getting a cup for yourself, the most important thing to do is wait for your period, insert a clean finger, and find your cervix. (It feels kind of like pursed lips and no, the cervix is not how far your finger can go into your vagina. Often, your finger can miss your cervix if you're not looking for it/don't know how to find it. Don't fret. It takes practice.) Measure throughout your period where your cervix is and where it moves to figure out what you need in a cup, size-wise. You may wish to own more than one to accommodate your cervix positions through-out. That's totally fine.
The Diva is a very long and relatively firm cup that may not be for everyone.
If you need something shorter (lower cervix), softer (weak pelvic muscles), or with a larger capacity (heavier period flow/less frequent changes), there are other cups available.
However, for myself, this cup is absolutely perfect, and I suggest that you don't write it off, because it may be for you, too.
It's sturdy, proudly boasts a Made in Canada label, and reduces waste. (Both of the garbage and financial variety.)
Whatever your decision, I wish you luck.
I could not recommend this product enough. 10/10!
It DOES take some practice/adjustment to the feeling but overall I recommend this to anyone!
