Introduction

The Diva Cup originates from Canada and hit the market way back in 2001. It’s been a reputable brand that has been registered with the FDA since. It can be easily found in big chain stores in the USA or worldwide at a local pharmacy, chemist, or specialty health store, as well as online for around $35-$39 USD.

The DivaCup Model 0

What’s Included:

When purchasing the Diva Cup Model 0, you will receive the narrowest version of the Diva Cup, a user manual, and a cloth storage pouch, all packaged neatly in a box.  The original Diva Cups (models 1 and 2) also came with a Diva Cup pin but it’s unsure if it is still included.

Who is it Meant For?

Although all of the Diva Cup sizes are the same length, the Model 0 is the narrowest version that the Diva Cup has to offer.  It has been dubbed the “teen” size because of this.  However, you don’t have to be a teen to use it.  Model 0 is also great for new users and individuals who experience bladder or bowel pressure.

Personally, as an individual with a medium to high cervix, I found that the Diva Cup was a good length.  However, model 0 was too narrow for my liking.  Although it was easy to insert, it was difficult to place the rim correctly near or around my cervix.  It also did not have the capacity I needed for heavy flow days.

Features:

Capacity:  The Diva Cup model 0 holds 17 ml to the air holes and 23 ml to the top of the rim.  While these aren’t considered high capacity, those who have a light to moderate flow might find it sufficient for all-day wear.

Body:  Its body shape is that of a “V” which tapers to a point and may be easier to reach for individuals with a medium to high cervix.

Stem:  While the stem is not very long, it is hollow for easy trimming and features grip rings down the length.

Because the stem is hollow it moves easily in all directions.  It is fairly short and I found it comfortable to wear without trimming.  My one issue with hollow stems is that blood can become trapped in them.  Make sure to pay close attention during cleaning.

Rim/s:  All Diva Cups have two rims.  The secondary rim adds firmness to the mouth of the cup so that it will open with ease as well as softening the transition from the body to the upper rim.

Base/Grip rings:  The base of the cup features four grip rings for secure contact with your fingers.  This is important when maneuvering and removing the cup.

Silicone:  As previously mentioned, the Diva Cup has been registered through proper channels including the FDA.  The silicone quality is excellent for years of use.  It is smooth but frosted and doesn’t create drag while inserting.  The company forewent all unnecessary additives, including color pigments. Which means it is only offered in opaque white.

Firmness:  The Diva Cup is considered medium firmness.  It is often used as a baseline when comparing the firmness of other cups.

I found the firmness of the model 0 easy to hold, insert, and open without any coaxing.  If you have a sensitive bladder or bowel you may still find this cup a little too firm.  However, because it is a very narrow cup, it may lessen that extra pressure and still be a good option.

Air Holes:  There are four small air holes just under the upper rim.  Although four holes normally allow good airflow to release any suction the cup may have created, the ones on the Diva Cups are considered small.  Therefore, some individuals may find that it creates a strong seal and that it may need some extra pinching to release and remove it.

Flashlines:  While the Diva Cup has a flashing (joining line/seam) on the side of the rim, it has been cleaned up well and can barely be seen or felt with a fingertip.

Markings:  The Diva Cup is branded with their name, “The Diva Cup” and “Made in Canada”.  It also includes number size indication, and measurement lines and numbers in both oz. and ml. All on the inside of the cup.

Colors:

The DivaCup Model 1

What’s Included:

When purchasing the Diva Cup Model 1, you will receive the middle size that the Diva Cup has to offer, a user manual, and a cloth storage pouch, all packaged neatly in a box.  The original Diva Cups (models 1 and 2) also came with a Diva Cup pin but it’s unsure if it is still included.

Who is it Meant For?

Although all of the Diva Cup sizes are the same length, the Model 1 is considered their medium size.  This size would be compatible with other small-sized menstrual cups on the market.   Model 1 is great for new users and individuals who experience bladder or bowel pressure who also want a little more capacity than their “teen” cup but need the extra length for easy reach.

Personally, as an individual with a medium to high cervix, I found that the Diva Cup was a good length.  Although it was easy to fold, insert, open, and place correctly, it didn’t have the capacity I needed for heavy flow days.

Features:

Capacity:  The Diva Cup model 1 holds 20 ml to the air holes and 27 ml to the top of the rim.  While these aren’t considered high capacity, those who have a light to moderate flow might find it sufficient for all-day wear.

Body:  Its body shape is that of a “V” which tapers to a point and may be easier to reach for individuals with a medium to high cervix.

The DivaCup Model 2

What’s Included:

When purchasing the Diva Cup Model 2, you will receive the largest-sized that Diva Cup has to offer, a user manual, and a cloth storage pouch, all packaged neatly in a box.  The original Diva Cups (models 1 and 2) also came with a Diva Cup pin but it’s unsure if it is still included.

Who is it Meant For?

Although all of the Diva Cup sizes are the same length, the Model 2 is the largest size in diameter.  This size would be compatible with other large-sized menstrual cups on the market.   Model 2 is great for experienced users and/or those who need a slightly higher capacity than model 1.  That is not to say that new users can’t use model 2.  However, the diameter is wider and new users may feel more comfortable starting with a narrower cup.

Personally, as an individual with a medium to high cervix, I found that all sizes of the Diva Cup were a good length.  Model 2 – the largest size available was the best fit for me in terms of diameter.  It felt comfortable, was easy to place correctly, and had a larger capacity than the other two sizes.

Features:

Capacity:  The Diva Cup model 2 holds 25 ml to the air holes and 30 ml to the top of the rim.  While these aren’t considered high capacity, those who have a light to moderate flow might find it sufficient for all-day wear.

Body:  Its body shape is that of a “V” which tapers to a point and may be easier to reach for individuals with a medium to high cervix.

Stem:  While the stem is not very long, it is hollow for easy trimming and features grip rings down the length.

Because the stem is hollow it moves easily in all directions.  I did end up trimming the stem on the model 2 since I used it more often and found that it would leave “stamp marks” on my underwear.  This is before I got into the habit of wiping excess blood away from the stem and base of my cups.  My one issue with hollow stems is that blood can become trapped in them.  Make sure to pay close attention during cleaning.

Rim/s:  All Diva Cups have two rims.  The secondary rim adds firmness to the mouth of the cup so that it will open with ease as well as softening the transition from the body to the upper rim.

Base/Grip rings:  The base of the cup features four grip rings for secure contact with your fingers.  This is important when maneuvering and removing the cup.

Silicone:  As previously mentioned, the Diva Cup has been registered through proper channels including the FDA.  The silicone quality is excellent for years of use.  It is smooth but frosted and doesn’t create drag while inserting.  The company forewent all unnecessary additives, including color pigments. Which means it is only offered in opaque white.

Firmness:  The Diva Cup is considered medium firmness.  Iit is often used as a baseline when comparing the firmness of other cups.  However, those who have a sensitive bladder or bowel may still find it a little too firm.

After using model 2 for a couple of hours I started to experience some cramping.  I thought that maybe it was just normal cramps and went on using it for the duration of my period.  In the meantime, I purchased another cup.  During my next period, I used the new cup without any issues – no cramping.  I switched back to the Diva Cup model 2 and the cramping continued.  The two cups were very similar but the new cup was slightly softer and had a wider secondary rim.  Although I think the Diva Cup is an excellent cup, it just wasn’t the right combination of features for me.

Air Holes:  There are four small air holes just under the upper rim.  Although four holes normally allow good airflow to release any suction the cup may have created, the ones on the Diva Cups are considered small.  Therefore, some individuals may find that it creates a strong seal and that it may need some extra pinching to release and remove it.

Diva Cup Model 0 vs Model 1

The Diva Cup model 0 holds 17 ml to the air holes and 23 ml to the top of the rim and has a diameter of 40 mm.

The Diva Cup model 1 holds 20 ml to the air holes and 27 ml to the top of the rim and has a diameter of 43 mm.

According to the company, model 0 is for those who are 18 years of age or younger.  While model 1 is for ages 19-30.  However, both sizes have been considered to be good for new users and have been found comfortable to wear and easy to reach for those with a medium to high cervix.

If you are a young teen or have never experienced any type of penetration (including a tampon), model 0 might be the better option to start with.

Diva Cup Model 1 vs Model 2

The Diva Cup model 1 holds 20 ml to the air holes and 27 ml to the top of the rim and has a diameter of 43 mm.

The Diva Cup model 2 holds 25 ml to the air holes and 30 ml to the top of the rim and has a diameter of 45 mm.

According to the company, model 1 is for those who are ages 19-30 and have a medium menstrual flow.  While model 2 is for those over the age of 30 and/or have a heavier menstrual flow.

Although the diameter of these cups isn’t too far off, those who have previous experience with bladder or bowel sensitivities may find model 1 more comfortable.

Alternatives to DivaCup

Venus CupLooking for a higher capacity? The large Venus Cup is the same body length as the largest Diva Cup but holds a whopping 47ml to Diva Cups 25ml.  Even the small Venus Cup holds more than the large Diva Cup at 29ml.  This cup is of medium firmness in both sizes and is offered as a single cup or take advantage of some savings by ordering a Starter Pack.

Casco Cup – While the Casco Cup is very similar in shape and size to the model 1 & 2 of the Diva Cup, it is softer and therefore may be more comfortable for those with a sensitive bladder or bowel.

Eva Cup (USA) – The Eva Cup from the USA (not Italy) has a soft body but a wider secondary band.  The wide band spreads out pressure points and helps the cup open easily.  While the soft body also eases extra pressure for a sensitive bladder or bowel.  Unlike the Diva Cup, the smaller Eva Cup is shorter than its large sidekick.

Summary

The Diva Cup is a reputable cup that has provided excellent protection for many users over the years.  It can be easily found in a store near you or purchased online.  While these cups aren’t considered high capacity, they may be a great option for individuals who need a longer cup due to a medium or a high cervix.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Can you get toxic shock syndrome from Diva Cup?

Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) is a very rare, but serious disease caused by toxin-producing strains of the Staphylococcus aureus bacterium.  Use caution to thoroughly wash your hands prior to insertion and removal and wash the cup with warm water and the DivaWash at least 2-3 times a day (every 10 – 12 hours).

How does the Diva Cup work?

The Diva Cup sits below the cervix to collect menstrual flow.

How much does a diva cup hold?

Model 0 holds 17 to 23 ml.
Model 1 holds 20 to 27 ml. 
Model 2 holds 25 to 30 ml.

Can you go swimming with a Diva Cup?

You can wear the DivaCup for any activity you participate in while menstruating, except for vaginal intercourse.  This includes swimming, scuba diving, camping, sleeping, running, yoga, weightlifting, gymnastics – you name it!

How do I dispose of Diva Cup?

Thoroughly wash the cup, cut it up into smaller pieces, and dispose of in the trash. Silicone starts out as sand and degrades over time, which means that your DivaCup will eventually break down.

Are you supposed to feel a diva cup?

Using the correct size and position, you should not feel the DivaCup.

Can I leave my diva cup in for 24 hours?

To avoid foul odors and infection, you should remove and wash the DivaCup at least 2-3 times a day (every 10-12 hours).

How do you know if your Diva Cup is in right?

If the DivaCup is the correct size and in the correct position, you should not feel it or experience any leaking.

Why does my Diva Cup smell?

An odor could develop if you wear the DivaCup longer than the recommended 12 hours without removing and cleaning.

Can I poop with a Diva Cup in?

Yes. The DivaCup should not interfere with your ability to urinate or have a bowel movement.

Can the Diva Cup stretch you out?

The labia and vagina canal are very elastic and should return to its normal shape after the cup passes through the area or once removed.

Are Diva Cups better for the environment?

Since the DivaCup is reusable, it will keep waste out of landfills.

What happens if you leave your diva cup in for over 12 hours?

Leaving the DivaCup in longer than recommended allows more time for bacteria to produce and cause foul odors.  It can also put you at a higher risk for infections.

    This doesn’t work for everyone. I would like to warn others if you have a long cervix.
    I did my research and thought a menstrual cup . What a great idea. So I purchased a Diva cup . Read all the instructions and felt confident this could be for me. I inserted the cup first time no problem felt comfortable , no leaks. Went to empty it, I could not get a grip of the stem . The cup had moved up high into my cervix. I had to go and get the cup removed by a doctor. I will never be using this product again.

    - CONS: To hard to remove

    I purchased my first one last night after finally having enough of using tampons. Although it has not even been 24 hours of using it, I am in absolute love with it. I am still trying to get the hang of insertion but for someone like me, this is perfect! I wore it to bed last night for the first time (wore a pad as well just in case) and there was only a drop of blood on the pad when I woke up this morning which REALLY demonstrates how this product works because I have a MUCH heavier flow than most. The cup was completely full this morning but I did not wake up feeling all squishy and gross which is a MAJOR plus for me. Overall, it’s difficult to use at first but once you start to feel how it works with your body, you will love it.

    + PROS: Easy to clean, comfortable to wear all night, barely/no leakage, good for the environment, REUSABLE!
    - CONS: Difficult to work with the first couple times you use it

    Absolutely love it. First time I used it, it just worked. It fit perfectly, did not feel uncomfortable at all, took one or twice before I got the hang of removing it, but that was no problem at all. I find it best to have a shower at night and a short one in the morning to clean and re-insert; just wash it in the shower with gentle soap. I was amazed at how well it worked for me as it was my first cup and had only been using tampons for a year or so beforehand. First insertion was totally fine, it just slipped in and felt completely comfortable; I didn’t even feel it. As I mentioned, removing it was a bit daunting at first, but by the second removal, I had it down pat.
    I feel that i can’t put into words how amazing it is for me. It has given me so much freedom and I no longer have to worry about changing every 2 hours. I can now go out and do my archery for 8 hours and not have to worry about changing every break. I can go to work and not have to worry about anything. It is purely a stroke of genius and heaven rolled into one.

    The diva cup moves around and I bleed all over my pants. I put it in as instructed, so in so I make sure it’s open, all the way back to cover my cervical opening. And now. I’m sitting in my car on my lunch break with bloody fingers and a couple of glovebox cotton balls doing damage control. Screw you, Diva Cup. Just screw you.

    + PROS: Light days it works fine. Days 1-3 are hit or miss disasters waiting to happen.
    - CONS: It doesn't work

    I’ve had my Diva Cup for about 4 months and my experience has been pretty good!! I have a very low cervix so I had to trim the stem off which can make it a little harder to take out. Like most people, it took me a few tries the first time to insert the cup but then it was easy. HOWEVER- it does leak if you don’t insert it right so make sure you check that it is inserted correctly. If you have a low cervix: I can occasionally feel the diva cup stem (even after I trimmed it) if I’m in a weird position sitting or if it shifts and it can kinda hurt sometimes. But usually I can’t feel it all and I’ve only had it leak once!

    + PROS: •Can leave for 12 hours- never overflows •Comfortable for the most part •Zero Waste/Zero chemicals •Lasts for YEARS •If properly inserted- NO LEAKS
    - CONS: •Stem is annoying for low set cervix •Have to get touchy with your lady parts •Have to have access to sinks when taking it out •Can be hard to insert at the beginning and if inserted incorrectly leads to leaks.

    Diva Cup is a crapy product, its supposed to hold for at least 12 hours, it held fine for 2 hours tops after that it kept leaking and believe me having to change it several times a day is not comfortable at all, its painful.

    + PROS: It only it worked.
    - CONS: Leaks, hurts to remove and put in, messy.

    I love this thing. 10 out of 10.

    I’ve been reading some of the reviews and noticed some recurring issues that I could address now that I have some experience with the cup.

    *Removing the cup is easy. Do NOT pull on the stem. The cup uses suction to stay in place. Pulling the stem just pulls your insides down, it doesn’t break the suction. To remove insert your index finger along the side of the cup and gently press into the side of the cup, you’ll feel the cup become less firm. Also, you can pinch the base of the cup to break the seal. Whatever you do just do NOT use the stem to pull without first breaking the seal.

    *The stem is supposed to sit just a few millimetres inside the vaginal opening, not centimetres but millimetres. By all means cut the stem if it protrudes but not if it is sitting just above the opening to the vagina. Measure before cutting – if you don’t need to cut the entire stem off, don’t.

    *When inserted correctly the cup will unfold. When it unfolds you should be able to very easily take hold of the base, NOT the stem, with just the tips of your forefinger and thumb, and gently twist the cup. If it is too wet to twist dry it off with some toilet paper. Twisting should be very easy. If you can’t twist the cup remove it and try again. It should only take a few tries before you get the hang of it.

    *Just because it can be left in for up to 12 hours doesn’t mean you should leave it in for that long. Every person has a different flow. On my heaviest day, I can fill the cup three times in 12 hours. I left it overnight, from 10pm to 7am and it did leak when I stood up as I was getting out of bed. I expected that to happen as I have a very heavy flow. If you’re realistic and logical about your flow you ought to be prepared for these things to happen.

    *I paid $39AUD for my cup. I am over 30 but have not had children, so I bought cup size 2. Vaginas (& our menstrual flow) change over time, therefore there are two cup sizes. Read the size guidelines properly to ensure you purchase the correct one.
    $39 is very cheap compared to the $150+ I (& many vagina owners) would usually spend on pads and tampons in a year.

    *Some people have complained about smell. The smell comes from us. If your cup smells it’s just part of your cycle. (If I recall correctly, longer slower cycles have more smell whereas heavier faster cycles have less or no smell). When your cycle is over, boil the cup in a saucepan of water for 10 minutes. You can throw in a little bit of hydrogen peroxide to help keep the cup looking brand spanking new. Boiling will keep the cup hygienic and odour free.

    *If you’re going out, empty the cup just before you leave the house so you don’t end up trying to empty it in a tiny public toilet cubicle. If you do have to empty it in a public loo, dump the blood in the loo, wipe the cup inside and out with loo paper then replace it. The soft silicone makes cleaning it with toilet paper very easy.

    *You won’t get of blood everywhere. The cup is the width of your vagina so that means it literally grabs all the blood. You might get a bit of blood on your finger when you insert a finger to break the suction when you want to remove the cup. I guarantee, if you’re doing it right it’s going to be a lot less messy than any tampon ever. The first couple of attempts at using a cup might be a bit messy, but when you get the hang of it it’ll be super easy.

    *I normally use a tampon and a pad together due to having a super heavy flow and I still have trouble with leaks. This last cycle all I used was the cup. I was nervous and paranoid the whole time but I had no problems (except for the morning of my heavy day which I anticipated and it was fine anyway). For the first time in my nearly 25 years of menstruation I’m eager for next month so I can run around confidently wearing my cup with no paranoia, no worry, no problems.

    Yes, the cup looks big but our vaginas are elastic, and the cup is soft and flexible. The diva cup has been researched thoroughly to ensure that it is right for vaginas everywhere. Indeed, there are two sizes to make doubly sure that there is a cup to match every vagina.

    *You can’t get toxic shock syndrome (TSS) from a cup.

    No matter what, this cup is cheaper, more environmentally friendly, and healthier than tampons and pads, and because of that even if I ended up getting a handful of blood every time I emptied the cup, I’d still stick with it.

    + PROS: Cheap Environmentally friendly No possibility of toxic shock syndrome No mess Easy to use Good for heavy flow Lasts for a year or more
    - CONS: Can be a bit awkward to insert Instructions could be clearer. Lack of clarity can be off putting for new users.

    Just bought this my last cycle. With a heavy flow and needy 1 yr old, changing several times a day and dealing with leaks that came with tampons had me depressed and about ready to rip out my hair. Now I change my Divacup once a day. It is tricky to get in at first but read and follow directions and in a few tries it will be second nature. This is a gamechanger for me. I seriously forget I am even on my period.

    + PROS: No leaking, no tampons, no pads, no more running out of feminine products, less time spent in bathroom during period, less worry about TSS, not painful to remove if not full (dry tampons are a nightmare)
    - CONS: Cannot change/unsanitary to change in public restroom (but haven't had to yet), can take time to learn insertion method that is best for you

    • I think you should change and be more specific….heavy flow people cant even get close to 12 hours. I had to remove it every 2 hours or less and to sleep it was 2.5 hrs… it would help heavy flow ladies know better instead of guessing and waiting to bleed everywhere

    This cup has been a lifesaver for me! I have endometriosis so trust me, I know what it means to have cramps. With this product, I have no cramps at all. Couldn’t believe it at first that it could make such a huge difference. I’ll never go back to other ways of dealing with my period. Thanks, Divacup!

    + PROS: No smell Easy to use No cramps Convenient
