The DivaCup Menstrual Solution. Manufactured from silicone and is latex-free.
The DivaCup is an effective non-bleached alternative to tampons, suitable for menstruating women of all ages.
The DivaCup is very sanitary, comfortable, reliable and convenient. It holds one full ounce (30 ml). The entire cycle is an average of 3-4 ounces (90-120 ml). The vagina is continually self-cleansing, washing away dead cells and bacteria. Unlike tampons, The DivaCup is non-absorbent. Since it simply collects the menstrual flow, it does not disturb the natural moisture level in the vagina. Depending on your flow, empty 2-3 times per 24 hour day, wash and reinsert. It can be worn up to 12 hours, even overnight. It is ideal for all activities including swimming, camping, backpacking, and traveling.
Since The DivaCup is reusable, it is very economical. As well, you can feel confident that you are doing your part in environmental conservation. Landfill and pollution problems are on the rise and continue to be a worldwide concern. In 1998, 6.5 billion tampons and 13.5 billion sanitary pads and their packaging made their way into landfills and sewage systems in the USA alone!
The DivaCup is approved by the FDA (USA) and Health Canada. It is made of soft medical-grade silicone, which is latex-free, 100% hypoallergenic and odorless. For over 50 years, silicone has been safely and extensively used in products for the health care industry.
Diva Cup comes in 2 sizes:
- Model 1 - for women under 30 years of age who have never had child birth or c-section
- Model 2 - for women who have had childbirth or are over 30 years of age
