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.

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
