The Diva Cup Model 2 Post-Childbirth
um yes I love it!!
OK, so I was a little hesitant to try this... but was really tired of dealing with the irritation of tampons and the messiness of pads... SO glad i did!! SO wonderful, so stress free, and so comfortable!
I noticed that for the first time ever I had a cramp free cycle (the first time I used this), I was curious and read that a lot of women experience this and that cramping during a cycle could be caused by the chemicals/bleach being absorbed into your body from pads/tampons.
Do yourself a favor and go for it if you are on the fence!!

Well it's a change. But a good one. Definitely takes getting used to some practice but if you give it time it's worth it. Only used for two months so still learning. Fewer trips to the bathroom and less stressing about changing a tampon. And its healthier they say. Convenience is only 4 because it takes in/out time.

i have been wasting money for years!! yesterday was my first opportunity to try out my new diva cup. it is amazing! i have used applicator-less tampons since i was a teenager. i can feel this cup even less that i felt my previous products. it is soft and pliable.. so it moves with you and fits your shape. i was also concerned because i have had 5 children and multiple female surgeries. this works beautifully.. and ZERO leaks!! i found it very easy to insert/remove... i do have experience with a diaphragm too... very similar techniques. super easy to clean.. and the cute little fabric pouch makes for easy discrete storage. i am excited that i won't have to worry about whether or not i have enough tampons anymore! one day of use has won me over!!!

Best Purchase Ever!
When I ordered the Diva Cup, I was apprehensive on spending the money. It was well worth the money and more!! I hate anything I have to re-buy especially on a monthly basis. I decided to try the Diva cup at 40 because para-menopause and heavy bleeding, tampon and pads were not enough, and those things can get pricey. So with research on ways to control the bleeding, that were not surgical or medication i found the Diva Cup. For the first time in my entire life I am not worried about leaks, or getting up in the morning and finding another set of sheets ruined. The package says good for up to 12 hours, though I clean it more like 4 to 5 hours, I can "feel" the sloshing and know its time. It only takes a second to clean and you are on your way again, easy insertion and removal and all is clean after removal. Seriously could it be any better?
I haven't had 1 leak with the cup. I wish I had found out about this in my teens I would have saved a ton of money on underwear, pants and sheets, tampons and pads!!!!

Difficult to remove
I reviewed this product on many different sites and was interested in giving it a try in an effort to go green and save money. I used it for 3 days and finally went back to regular feminine products. Despite using per directions, I had difficult removing the diva cup. Even if it started out in the correct position, by the time I went to remove it several hours later it had moved "up" so far that it would take me about 10 minutes to extract. I would be willing to give it another try, but after I do some more reading to see if I need to do something different. It is not as easy to remove as indicated on the directions. That is the main reason I gave it a low rating. As far as quality, I was pleased. I had to wear a panty liner while using the diva cup, but I do that anyway with tampons. I only had to empty the cup 2-3 times a day. It was not convenient because of how long and the effort involved to remove the cup each time it needed to be emptied.

I had never tried a menstrual cup before and I have been very surprised how easy, convenient, and comfortable this product is. From what I have read about this product before purchasing I had to try it. I took this along with me to Mexico and swimming with it was very easy with no worries of leakage, also not having to change a tampon every time was nice also.

Better than tampons!
This product far surpassed my expectations! I have never comfortably used tampons. I am 29 years old and have 2 children. The Diva Cup has changed my life!! I would recommend this to anyone who has not been able to use tampons comfortably! I can leave it in for up to 12 hours with little to no leakage (a panty liner is all I needed even on my heaviest day). It's comfortable, I can't even feel it. Give yourself a couple of days to figure out how to insert and remove easily. Instructions included with product are excellent. I would recommend this to everyone!

You will never go back to the old way!
I don't see how anyone would want to use anything else. Once you master insertion, it's a breeze. I have used this product for 2 years and I am so thankful to have found it. Do yourself a favor and buy it!!

Something every woman should have
I was a little skeptical at first, as it required one to be comfortable with their own bodily fluids, but after reading the reviews I decided to try it. I would never go back to pads and tampons again. The only challenge is the removal, but certain techniques will help you execute this in one swift move without the risk of spillage. I appreciate getting a full nights sleep during my periods as it seldom needs to be changed during the day (2x for me at the most). Too bad I never used this sooner!

Pays for itself in a few months
Great product! It paid for itself within 3 months as it cut way down on the monthly purchases of pads and tampons. Works great if you have heavy flow as it will last much longer than a tampon. It took me awhile to get comfortable with it, but it was worth sticking with.

great green idea
the Diva cup seems to work very well no leaking. I purchased because I wanted to cut down on my landfill contribution I definitely think this will help me accomplish that goal. If you are comfortable with tampons I believe you could get comfortable with the Diva Cup.

yes thank you for carrying this. ladies if you don't have one you better run to get one.this is just THE BEST. unless you have an allergy to silicon(i've never heard of one but who knows) you MUST get one and see by yourself.it is not messy, fits so well that you can forget you have one, no leaking when put in the right way, no smell, best for the environment and your pocket and last for a loong time( i have been using the cup number 1 since 2004 even after giving birth to my child and switched just to see if it will feel the same to me and best of all swanson has the best price). no need to be fancy here. ladies you know what i'm talking about.
bottom line, buy one and see for yourself. thank you
