  1. Hey girls! Since today i’m a proud owner of a diva and i’m really happy with her. Exept i had to cut the stem, because it hurted a little bit. As beginner i had problems with the handle of the cup… big problems with getting it out again! But i’m 23 and i’ve chosen a size 2… i almost gave up and asked myself if that size was too big for me? But with patience it does work pretty well now, i’m suprised! i don’t feel anything, i just feel supported by my new cup… :)
    To all you girls, say goodbye to the tampon and hello to the menstrual cup.
    It needs a little patience to get success but afterwords it’s just a great, hygienic feeling you don’t want to miss. Travelling – swimming – making the sports you want without any fear…
    These points are just the reason why i wanted to have a menstrual cup!

  2. I too have a Diva Cup (started with a 1, but I think it was too small) and bought a 2 about a year later. I absolutely love it. And this is before I went on green kick. All I ever buy now is liners (naturcare). Speaking of which, I need to do that…

  3. I found the Diva Cup to be too small for my body, so I went with the Moon Cup (USA) and it fit my body much better. I was having an issue with the rim on the Diva cup which was too small for me.

  4. I started with a keeper B and loved it, but lost it somehow in my travels. Upon searching for a new one, I found & bought the diva cup 1, and loved it even more than the keeper! Boilable, grip lines, measure marks, and higher holes, oh my! It’s been several years and I can’t imagine going back to ‘pons/pads – ick! I never leak (unless I get lazy) and I haven’t bought/used/disposed of any other fem products in years!! Yay!

  5. I’m an owner of a Diva Cup. Earlier this year, I bought a size 2 (I’m over 30 but never had a baby), but found it too big for me. I switched over to a size 1, and I’ve found success! This is the third brand of cups I’ve tried, and the old cliche, “Third time’s a charm” applies here. Although I had to cut the stem off because of the irritation (it wasn’t super bad but it was noticeable), I haven’t had any problems with it. I don’t leak unless I’ve left it in longer than the 12 hours recommended, because I’ve forgotten about it (I don’t feel it).
