You have so many demands on your time – period care shouldn’t be one of them. The DivaCup offers up to 12 hours of hassle-free menstrual care, giving you ultimate comfort without putting you on a schedule.
With The DivaCup you don’t have to worry about where to tuck that tampon string when swimming or if your tampon or pad can handle the various angles of your body movement during a yoga pose or when dancing, swimming hiking, skydiving, camping, etc.
From business trips to family vacations to backpacking across the world, The DivaCup is all you need! With its 12 hour leak-free protection, The DivaCup lets you pack that extra pair of shoes, instead of the armful of tampons and pads that previously took up precious room in your luggage. Plus, that ten hour canoe ride will be an easy feat as you won’t need to worry about finding a bathroom to switch your product every four hours or so.
Remember, no matter where you are in the world, The DivaCup only needs to be washed well, with clean, potable water, twice a day (every 12 hours). If you need to remove your DivaCup in a public restroom, just wipe it with a damp tissue and reinsert. At the next convenient time, wash The DivaCup with the DivaWash or warm water and a mild, unscented water-based (oil-free) soap. The most important thing to remember is to make sure your hands are clean before you insert or remove the cup.
For ultimate comfort and protection during your next skydive or jet ski ride, ensure your DivaCup has been inserted properly, that the cup is fully open, the seal is in place and that you can easily rotate the cup in either direction. Refer to our Tips for Success for more insight.
The best way to avoid infection when cleaning The DivaCup in a developing country is to use potable water. This means that if the water is safe to drink it is safe to use to clean your DivaCup.
Depending on the type of camping trip you are on, your method for cleaning your DivaCup will vary. Remember that when you don’t have access to a bathroom, The DivaCup can be wiped out with tissue and washed and rinsed at the next convenient time. Always be sure to wash your hands before inserting or removing The DivaCup.
According to the guidelines of Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, when camping in the back country and with no access to proper disposal facilities, please use standard “cathole” practices. Also, observe the practice of containing your flow in a sealed plastic bag and hang it in a “bear bag” with other trash away from other animals.
Cathole: Catholes should be dug 6 to 8 inches deep at least 200 feet from water, camp, trails, and drainages. Bring a trowel to dig the hole, and disguise it well after use.
Bear Bag: In bear country, hang “smellables” from tree limbs 12 feet off the ground, 6 feet from the tree’s trunk, and 6 feet below the supporting limb, or store it in specially designed bear-resistant canisters or on-site lockers.
