What Is the DivaCup?

The DivaCup is a menstrual cup;  a reusable, bell-shaped silicone cup that you wear internally to collect period flow rather than absorb it.

But the DivaCup is so much more than a menstrual cup. The DivaCup challenges the ‘menstrual status quo’ and helps banish menstrual shame, empower menstruators, and improve our relationships with our menstrual cycles, all while reducing waste!

 So far we’ve introduced you to the DivaCup, and busted common DivaCup myths. Now let’s talk about why you should make the switch.

1. Eco-Friendly

Menstrual cups are reusable which makes them an eco-friendly period care option!

Using the DivaCup can replace hundreds of disposable products every year.

2.      Cost-Effective

Although it may seem more expensive to buy a menstrual cup compared to a box of pads or tampons, with proper care and cleaning, your DivaCup can last for several years.
Each body is different, and pH, acidity levels and vaginal bacteria can affect the lifespan of a DivaCup, so we encourage you to visit DivaCup.com for future guidelines on care & cleaning as well as when to replace your cup.

3.      Up to 12-Hours of Leak-Free Protection

The DivaCup can be worn for up to twelve hours depending on your menstrual flow. That’s up to twelve hours of leak-free protection so you can focus on what really matters in life!

4.      Chemical-Free

The DivaCup is made from 100% medical grade silicone and is BPA-free, with no added chemicals, plastics, or dyes.

5.      Track Your Flow

As a reusable option, you need to get up close and personal with your flow and body. Not only will you learn how much your average monthly flow is but you’ll learn a lot about your vaginal and pelvic floor health – all things that are so, so very important to know!

6.      Clean and Comfortable

Menstrual cups are clean and comfortable, and when inserted correctly you can’t even feel them. The DivaCup collects rather than absorbs flow, meaning it won’t dry out your vaginal canal and it won’t leave trace residue.

DivaCares – Where Passion Meets Programming

People all over the world menstruate. Yet, depending on regional location and cultural norms and practices, the experience varies from one person to the next. While many people have access to disposable and reusable period products, there are still many communities that have limited access to clean water, health care and life essentials, including period protection.

Diva International Inc. is committed to helping all people find access to period products through their DivaCares program. If there is an organization that you feel may benefit from their support, please contact their team at  dcdonations@divacup.com.

Are you ready to challenge the period status quo?

The DivaCup will change the way you think about your period. It will make it less cumbersome, less messy, and less stressful. Try it. You won’t know until you do!
