The vagina is continually self-cleansing, washing away dead cells and bacteria. Tampons absorb the natural fluids that we need to keep the vagina clean and moist. The DivaCup is non-absorbent and simply collects the menstrual flow, leaving the natural moisture level in the vagina undisturbed.
Depending on your flow empty the cup 2-3 times per 24 hour day, wash and reinsert. It can be worn up to 12 hours, even overnight. The DivaCup is ideal for all activities including swimming, camping, backpacking, and travelling. It is suitable for all menstruating women of all ages.
The DivaCup is very sanitary, comfortable, reliable and convenient. It holds one full ounce (30 ml). Since the entire cycle is an average of 3-4 ounces (90-120 ml), most women find that the cup is not even half full after 12 hours.
The DivaCup - Over 30 - Model 2 is rated out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DivaQueen from Revolutionary This product has revolutionized my period. If you haven't tried a menstrual cup before it will take a couple of cycles before you're completely confident, but once you are, there's no going back. No more waste, no more purchasing of feminine products every month, no more leaks! I love my Diva cup!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chocolate from Highest recommendation for any feminine hygiene product This product was what some may call a 'god-send'. Without going into gory details, I was unable to use tampons anymore (pain), so finding the DivaCup made me happy. Mine has lasted for over 8 years but I will be opening up my new one within the next month or so since the tip on mine fell off last month which makes it hard to get out now. Saves so much money and so much solid waste. Buy one DivaCup and save yourself thousands of dollars (and save on waste from the creation of disposable pads/tampons). Could need to be emptied in just 15 minutes or up to 12 hours, depending on the day of the cycle. I actually have the Model 1 but the only difference is the size (functions the same way as the Model 2). It takes awhile to get used to inserting it but you'll get the hang of it (the directions are excellent!). You won't be sorry with this purchase!
