Product Description

The DivaCup ™

Launched worldwide in 2003, the DivaCup is one of the most popular menstrual cups on the market. While this is a popular and very reputable brand, it is also one of the longer menstrual cups and may not be suitable for women who have a mid to low cervix.

Your purchase can provide period dignity

DivaCup™ Features:

  • The DivaCup is hypo-allergenic and free from latex, plastic, PVC, acrylic, acrylate, BPA, phthalate, elastomer and polyethylene.
  • The DivaCup has extra grip ridges around the base to assist with removal
  • Hollow stem

Until the effects of colours and dyes on the body are better understood, DivaCup has decided to err on the side of caution and only manufacture a clear cup.

As with all menstrual cups, if you have any gynaecological or medical concerns or conditions, please consult with your medical practitioner prior to using a menstrual cup. Use the Diva Cup according to it’s directions. Discontinue use and talk to your doctor if you experience any adverse affects.

You may also find our Menstrual Cup General Sizing Guidelines helpful in deciding the best size Diva.

Using the DivaCup™:

When first learning to use your Diva cup, you may wish to experiment with one of these 9 Folding techniques to help find the one that works best for you. Once inserted, rotate and run your finger around the base of the cup to ensure it has opened fully.

When removing, use the stem to find the base of the cup. Pinch the base to break the suction and then gently pull out. You should not remove the cup by pulling on the stem. The DivaCup should be emptied, washed and reinserted at least 2 times a day (twice in a 24 hour period) and can be worn overnight without concern of leaking. Most women need only to empty it in the morning and again in the evening. By monitoring the fullness of the cup over a couple of cycles, you will quickly learn how often to empty it according to your specific needs. Most women find that the cup is not even half full after 12 hours. For those with heavier flows, the cup is simply emptied more often during the day.

If you have a fairly regular cycle, you may wish to insert The DivaCup right before your period to avoid spotting.

ALWAYS READ THE LABEL AND USE ONLY AS DIRECTED. IF SYMPTOMS OCCUR, PLEASE SEE YOUR DOCTOR/HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL

    I was dubious… but am completely converted. I’m going travelling overseas and won’t have to worry about having my period. Result!

    Simply the best decision I made switching to the Diva cup! Only took 2 cycles to get used to it. Don’t even notice it when I’m wearing it, plus it can stay in for up to 12hrs. So handy when out and about or at work. It’s never leaked and can go swimming without any worries. Already saved the money I would have spent buying other sanitary products

    Amazing, never looked back. First time using it I was a little unsure, but it has never let me down or caused any discomfort. In fact I’d say it causes less pain than using tampons as it doesn’t have the ‘drawing’ effect. I have an IUD and fund my periods to be fairly heavy and painful so this was a really great option. Other great aspects:
    – No longer needing to find a bathroom with a bin or sneak products to the loo when you’re out or at work
    – Never needing to dash out to buy emergency supplies
    – Never having to spend money on disposable products again
    – Zero waste created which is a really noble thing

    I went by cup recommendations and it was inaccurate. Even though I had 2 c sections the cup suggested to me was too big. And I wish they did a price cut for ordering another cup in a different size cause it’s not like I could return it .

      Hi Sarah, Thank you for submitting your review and we are sorry to hear the Diva Cup was not suitable. The sizing guidelines that we display as a retailer are in accordance with those given to us by the distributors/manufacturers, but we realise there can be times that they are not always spot on for every woman. We would love to know if you have managed to find a cup that is a better fit? or if there is anything we can do to help you find a suitable alternative to the Diva? Please let us know if we can help.

    I didn’t know that the Diva cup was the largest of menstrual cups commercially available, before purchasing it. I’m currently having difficulty with it as it keeps slipping out. This makes it extremely hard to be active with it in. I have to make frequent bathroom trips to push it back up. I would not recommend to people who are wishing to try a menstrual cup for the first time or to people who have a low cervix.

    Very happy with the diva cup, it gives me piece of mind and allows me to do any activities at anytime. I do a LOT of camping and my work is outdoor focussed, often without proper toilet facilities or running water. I find using the diva cup great, and a lot easier to manage then throw out alternatives. The 12 hour use time is very convenient. Cleaning of the cup while outdoors is easy with drinking water. It is easy to insert and remove on lower flows or on days your expecting. Highly recommend!

    The stem was not long enough and I had a lot of trouble removing it! I bought one with a longer stem and have had no issues since.
    Everything else is perfect, much better than tampons!

    It definitely works. A little bit awkward to use at first but I paired it with period undies so I didn’t worry. Couldn’t feel a thing when it was in properly and the instructions were very helpful.
