Frustrated with leaky pads and tampons? Looking for a reusable method of monthly protection but want something that can be worn internally? Here it is!!
The DivaCup is made from 100% hypoallergenic, latex-free, medical grade silicone-the same material that's used for everything from contact lenses to heart valves and joint replacements. It is super sanitary, comfortable, reliable and convenient. The DivaCup will hold one full ounce (30 ml), while the average menstrual flow is a total of 3-4 ounces (90-120 ml) for the entire cycle. Because the DivaCup is not absorbent, it does not disrupt the body's natural process of self-moisturizing and washing away dead cells and bacteria, unlike tampons. Depending on your flow, simply empty the cup 2-3 times per 24 hours, wash, and reinsert. Raised ridges on the outside bottom of the cup make removal easy, and measurements printed inside the cup (ounces and milliliters) allow you to monitor your flow. The DivaCup can be worn up to 12 hours, even overnight, and can be used while participating in sports, too!
The DivaCup is available in 2 sizes to accommodate menstruating women of all ages. Please visit DivaCup.com for answers to all your questions about the DivaCup.
Model 1 is for women under 30 years old who have never had childbirth or c-sections, and is 1/4" (0.6 cm) smaller in diameter than Model 2.
Model 2 is for women who have had vaginal childbirth or c-sections, and for women who are over 30 years old and never had childbirth.
Since The DivaCup is reusable, it is very economical. As well, you can feel confident that you are doing your part in environmental conservation. In 1998, 7 billion tampons and 13 billion sanitary pads and their packaging made their way into landfills and sewage systems in the USA alone!
