The innovative menstrual cup concept is over 75 years old!
A menstrual alternative, ends hassles with unreliable disposable tampons and sanitary pads in endless absorbencies, shapes and styles. This makes it perfect for all activities.
The DivaCup is latex free and is made from top quality silicone, a material that has been used in healthcare applications for over 50 years. (This silicone is not the same type of material used in breast implants.) No chlorine, dyes, colorings or additives of any kind are used.
After many years of approval & certification by FDA Health Canada, it finally has approval for sale in Australia! It meets high international safety and manufacturing standards, is made from high medical grade silicon, and is the most environmentally friendly, cost effective and safe way for women to get the freedom they want, whenever they want – anytime of the month!
Have you ever…(?)
- co-opted toilet paper from a public washroom as a temporary measure
- planned a vacation around your period
- avoided white pants for that one ‘special’ week of the month
- done a supplies hand-off with a girlfriend while the dates weren’t looking
- cautiously tucked the telltale string into your bikini
- accidentally pulled a mystery object from your purse in front of a curious male audience
- scuttled to the washroom to survey the leak damage after a sudden ‘surge’
- clogged your toilet with “flushable” feminine products
- left a party with a jacket tied around your waist…?
The DivaCup is a non-absorbent menstrual cup that simply collects menstrual flow. It is inserted in the vagina and sits at the lower base of the vaginal canal. It is worn internally, yet because it is soft and smooth, it cannot be felt nor will it leak when inserted properly.
The DivaCup is the most clean and convenient method of feminine hygiene protection. No need to touch the flow. It is worn low in the vagina, not near the cervix, so it is easy to remove. No mess!
The DivaCup ends hassles with unreliable disposables in endless absorbencies, shapes and styles. It is perfect for all activities – giving women true freedom without the worry, guessing and unreliability that disposable feminine hygiene products pose.
The DivaCup can be worn for up to 12 hours before emptying, washing and reinserting for use for another 12 hours. It can be used for light or moderate flows and is emptied more often to accommodate heavy flows. Perfect for overnight use.
The DivaCup’s expert, proprietary, patent-pending features make it comfortable and assures ease of use and reliability. Perfect for traveling, running, biking, hiking, dancing, camping, swimming, diving, scuba, yoga, extreme sports and more…
- Latex-free, BPA-free, plastic-free
- No dyes, colors or additives
- Comfortable, reliable
- Clean, convenient, easy-to-use
- Worn for up to 12 hours at a time
Choosing Your Size
The DivaCup is available in two models:
- Model 1: For women under 30 years old who have never delivered vaginally or by caesarean section.
- Model 2: For women over 30 years old and/or for women who have delivered vaginally or by caesarean section.
The Model 1 cup is 1 11/16″ (~4.3 cm) in diameter and the Model 2 cup is 1 13/16″ (~4.6 cm) in diameter. Both cups are approximately 2 1/4″ (~5.7 cm) in length in the body of the cup, with another 3/8″ (~1 cm) stem (2 5/8″ total length). The stem may be trimmed to adjust for comfort.
There is a small difference between the two sizes (Model 1 is 1/8″ (~0.3 cm) smaller), but it is important to use the recommended sizing to prevent leakage.
We recommend Model 2 if you are 30 or over 30 years old, because as we age, our hips naturally widen and the vaginal muscles lose elasticity. Because the vaginal muscles hold The DivaCup in place, it is important to use Model 2 if you are over 30, even if you have not had childbirth.

WOW! Can’t imagine my life without my DivaCup, it’s definitely one you shouldn’t live without. Wish I had it when I was growing up, I’ve already recommended it to all my family and friends, they still don’t believe me. This is a must have, so go get one ladies and find out what we’re talking about, you will love it as much as I do:)
I tried the DivaCup for the first time this month and fell in love with it. It wasn’t awkward for me at all, and I inserted it successfully the first time. Not one leak, I can’t even feel it. I keep forgetting that I am even on my period, whereas with pads and tampons that was never the case. Pads were clunky and I could feel them rubbing and scratching me all day, plus they were a mess to deal with. Tampons were always uncomfortable, and I never felt safe with them. But the DivaCup has been perfect for me so far!

Have just put my DivaCup in for the first time and apart from the usual cramps I would not even know I have a period this is the best investment a woman can make. Australia get with the times and start selling them here so all women can realise how good this is and also for the environment.

I LOVE The DivaCup! I first started using a similar product (The Keeper) 13 years ago. I’ve been using The DivaCup for 3 years and like it much more because of the softer and easier to clean silicone. It takes some getting used to finding the right position but once it’s in correctly, I don’t have to think about my period until the end of the day when I empty it, helps this time of the month to fly by. I hate the thought of using tampons and will encourage my daughter to use this once she is ready. I also love saving $$$!!!!

I’ve been using The DivaCup for over a year now, and all I can say is W-O-W!! Not only can I swim and do yoga like every other day, I am comfortable, odor-free and un-hassled whether I’m at work, out with friends or just hanging around the house. Clean, comfortable, cost-effective, eco-friendly, and once you get the hang of it, NO LEAKS.
I’ve been using The DivaCup for over two years now and loving the changes it’s made in my life. My period went from something to keep track of and dispose of to something that doesn’t interfere with my life at all. Today I had the experience of being at work, totally unprepared for my period, and with my DivaCup at home. I had to borrow a tampon from a friend, and after not having used one for two years I recoiled at the feel of it! It feels so unnatural to have to put something so dry and scratchy inside my body and then simply throw it away. It’s a totally different experience than The DivaCup. The DivaCup is soft and flexible, not hard and rigid like tampons. The DivaCup molds to my body instead of forcing its way in. I liken it to quitting smoking and then having a cigarette after two years… you’ll wonder what on earth ever attracted you! I knew that I loved my DivaCup, but now I know for certain that I will never go back
I was so skeptical at first… The whole concept was strange. Now I dont know how I could do without.
I’m a high school student, and I cannot tell you how PERFECT this product is. I’ve been using this since almost a year ago, and completely think that every single woman should own one.
When I came across The DivaCup on a traveling website, I was just about to leave for 3 weeks in Greece. I knew immediately I wanted one to make my life easier and started asking at several pharmacies here. No one had heard of the DivaCup before. So I ordered 3 online, 2 for myself, one more for a friend to whom I wanted to give it as a gift.
Those holidays I still had to make do with tampons before The DivaCups arrived. You know how the period often tends to arrive, oh so unexpectedly, right after flying, spoiling a good part of a holiday by the seaside? Well, the cups arrived after my holidays, I tried them and was bought immediately!
In the 18 months since, I have used nothing else, have in fact given away a stash of all different sizes of tampons that filled a small shopping basket. I gave them away to all those friends who wanted them, and have not regretted the decision since!
I will NEVER go back to using anything else!
Perfect seal, no leaks ever, no odor (no more dogs to come for a friendly sniff of my crotch at ‘that time of the month’, I am happy to say!), no hassle (I used to think I had a heavy period but usually get by with tipping my cup only twice a day) and it makes me feel altogether cleaner and fresher, too (also when going swimming – no wicking!). In fact, I cannot even feel the thing when I use it! Rinsing the cup with COLD water before use, makes it more ‘springy’ and thus helps it unfold more easily.
Thank you so much to the inventors! I wish I had known about The DivaCup much, much earlier. I keep telling every woman about it that wants to hear (some don’t, unfortunately…) and am so pleased to see those use it who benefit because they do a lot of sports like swimming or ski-racing and are very comfortable with The DivaCup!

The DivaCup is as much of an improvement over tampons as going from a pen and paper to a computer. You product has made my life much simpler. I live in Asia, and tampons are expensive, hard to find and poor quality. It’s a struggle to find them most places in Asia. When I travel, I travel light. I no longer have to give valuable backpack space to tampons and pads. Recently, I did a five day jungle trek in Laos while having my period. It was fantastic! I didn’t have to worry about disposing of my sanitary goods along the trek. Nobody knew, even though we were sleeping in the same room and the toilets were literally holes in the ground. I really liked the fact that I wasn’t leaving behind tampons and pads in that beautiful place. That trek really made me appreciate the ecologic advantages of your product.
