As 2012 comes to a close, I am incredibly thankful for all the accomplishments The DivaCup and our Diva Team had this year. Some of the memorable moments of 2012 for me include, seeing The DivaCup and DivaWash on shelf in many new stores across Canada and the United States and hearing about all the new International store listings, standing in front of our billboard ad in Times Square, NY, and meeting our Swim Diva, Julia Wilkinson on her return trip from the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.
Each of these experiences reminds me of why Carinne and I started Diva International ten years ago – to give women the opportunity to experience the many benefits that come with using The DivaCup and the empowerment that comes with being more informed about your menstrual health.
Our Diva office has also gone through some exciting changes; we moved offices, painted the walls pink and added a number of new members to the Diva Team. Each day we come to work excited to share the menstrual cup concept with women around the world.
Of course we also like to throw in a dance party or two, and always take time to celebrate our achievements.
One of my most favorite things to do at the office is to read through the many customer testimonials we receive. Each woman’s story is unique and serves as a reminder of the importance of sharing the concept of The DivaCup with women around the world.
Although there isn’t room to share all the testimonies we have received in 2012 in this post, I do want to share a few that remind me of how important it is to share The DivaCup with the women in our lives.
Oh Diva…where have you been all my life? I’m 44 and just discovered Diva. It’s the most amazing invention EVER! My friends must think I’m crazy the way I go on and on about it, but I’ve already converted two of them and now they get it too!

I never write testimonials but I felt so strongly about this product that I had to express my gratitude and to help convince someone else to start using one as well. In the past my period was a week of complete disruption and discomfort, from constantly worrying about leaky/changing pads, and counting hours while wearing a tampon. The DivaCup feels as though I’m not on my period at all, I can exercise, do yoga, go about my day like normal, with the added bonus of not creating waste bags full of used feminine products! I only wish I had bought one sooner, this little cup has eliminated the hassle that used to come with that monthly nuisance. Love it!

The Diva Cup is a life saver! I cannot believe this is not the bestselling feminine hygiene product on the market! Just thinking about having to deal with tampons and pads again makes me cringe! Never again! I’m a Diva for life!

I have only been using my new DivaCup for one day and I already feel the need to come on here and tell you how happy I am! This is the best thing that ever happened to my period (and my wallet)! Goodbye tampons forever!

The Diva Cup is not only an economical and environmental solution, it is so unbelievably convenient. I cannot imagine being without it now! There is a little bit of a learning/usage curve, but with the literature provided with the cup, it’s very easy to become accustomed to it. It took me less than one cycle to feel completely comfortable with The DivaCup. I honestly forget that I am on my period now! Thank you for making such a wonderful product!
