Answering questions about menstrual health and providing a sustainable solution for period care is what Diva International is all about. That's why we have taken the time to answer some of your questions and help you through your period experience.
The fact is, menstrual cups have been around for 90 years, but the truth about them has been lost in the frenzy of disposable tampons and pads. Like anything new, the DivaCup may take some getting used to as the experience of wearing the DivaCup is totally different than the sensation of tampons. Even those who are used to wearing pads as their preferred method of period care (because they cannot wear tampons or are not comfortable with internal menstrual care products) are finding great success with the DivaCup!
Please Note: The DivaCup should only be worn during menstruation and should not be worn during any other time of the month.
The convenient ounces and millilitres measurement feature of each DivaCup helps you keep track of your flow and report details to a health care provider if needed. Tampons and pads are not a reliable or scientific method of determining flow, because they come in many absorbencies, contain surfactants and moisture control agents.
Our Care and Cleaning instructions can provide you with some helpful tips for caring for your DivaCup.
