The Diva Cup is neither a pad nor tampon – it
simply is a better way! An approved and redesigned version of a
proven concept that was invented in the 1930s, it is a non-latex
and environmentally-friendly alternative to the usual options that
most women turn to during their cycle. There’s no more constant
worrying about leaks or the inconvenience of carrying around
numerous supplies in various sizes and absorbencies as one Diva Cup
will take care of everything. Fully reusable for as long as you
need it, simply remove, empty and reinsert 2-3 times per day during
your cycle and you can forget all about the difficulties of the old
standbys that you’ve used for so long. It’s hypoallergenic,
sanitary, comfortable and convenient, and with the Diva Cup you’re
not contributing to the large supply of waste that regularly gets
put into landfills, too! Two models are available – choose Model 1
if you are a woman under 30 years of age who has never delivered a
child or had a c-section, or choose Model 2 if you are over 30 or
have had a children naturally or through c-section. $34.95

I've been using it for a few years and would never go back! I am very small so I bought the small size (though it recommended the bigger one for my age). It took a few times to get used to inserting and removing. I get a leak on a rare occasion if I've rushed putting it in. I did trim the stem. I've never had to empty at work since you can leave it in so long. I still have cramps. Didn't know that was related. A friend of mine tried it and found it uncomfortable even when she trimmed the stem so she bought a different brand. Best invention ever! Nothing to buy or throw away ever again!
Biggest Money Saver
From Gina P of Selden, New York on .
I bought this a few years ago off of their official website. At the time they said it should last a decade. Now their website says to buy a new one ever year. I don't blame them for trying to make some more money off of the thing. But anyways it's good for a decade, just clean it regularly. I bought this before I was eco friendly vegan lady (when my sister introduced me to it when she was veg). It's just the biggest money saver in the world. Once you get the hang of it you don't even need pantyliners.
Trimming the stem increases comfort
From Julia of Oakland, California on .
I have been using the Diva Cup for 2 years now and I love it! I forget I'm on my period because I can wear it for so long without worries or anything external reminding me it's yucky time of the month. I was also a skeptic having tried the poorly designed "Instead" cup as a teen with leaky results. When I first used it, I could feel it and it leaked because I didn't make sure it fully popped open (that is key) and I needed to trim the stem. After figuring this out, it's a breeze! Don't worry about not being able to get it out if you trim the stem, I trimmed mine to the max and it is much more comfortable-- I can't feel it at all. You just pinch the bottom to remove, so easy! My sister is squeamish so she won't try it, but it is actually less gross than other products. Her loss!
Can't rave enough about the Diva Cup
From Beth Sopko of New York, New York on .
I didn't get this until I was probably 38, because I thought I was going to go through menopause at any time. I so totally wish I'd gotten it as soon as I heard of it; it's easily saved me hundreds of dollars and lots of grief, and many tampons that haven't gone into landfills as a result. (Do you realize how gross used tampons and pads are?)
And I'm smaller "down there," if that's what you mean; I have never had a problem with leakage or being unable to retrieve it. I realize some women can't use the Diva Cup for various reasons, but I think most women who can wear internal protection can. And it doesn't "suck you dry" the way tampons do—and there's no string! I'm sold!

Not for smaller women
From Julie Brydon of Duarte, California on .
If you are small "down there" do NOT use this product. When I tried it the diva cup would not come out and I had to have it removed by a doctor - who scolded me for ever even trying it. I'm glad other people have had success with this and it's a nice idea, but I'm sticking with organic cotton tampons!
