The DivaCup sits low in the vaginal canal, away from the cervix, and because it is made from medical grade non-absorbent silicone it should not irritate the inside of your vagina, if cleaned and cared for properly. With regards to concerns over infections such as, cervicitis, yeast infections or Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) please consult your physician prior to using The DivaCup. Please Note: The DivaCup should only be worn during menstruation and should not be worn during any other time of the month.
Physically, the DivaCup is suitable for all ages (even if you cannot wear tampons) as the vaginal canal is made up of very flexible tissue and muscles. After being stretched, after vaginal intercourse or childbirth, the tissue returns back to its normal size.
