The DivaCup is available in three sizes, Model 0, 1 and 2. Your cup size is stamped on the inside rim of the cup. There is a small difference between the three sizes, however it is important to use the recommended sizing to prevent leakage.
Size 0: Recommended for those new to the world of periods or 18 years of age or younger.
Size 1: Recommended for women under the age of 30 who have never delivered vaginally or by caesarean section
Size 2: Recommended for women age 30 and over and/or for women who have delivered vaginally or by caesarean section.
We recommend Model 2 if you are 30 years old or older even if you have not had vaginal childbirth or a c-section 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 children.
Please note: if you find tampons and routine pelvic/vaginal exams to be uncomfortable, it may be best to first consult with your health care provider as the Model 1 cup may be right for you. Our model sizes are recommended, but since women come in all shapes and sizes, it is difficult to determine the vaginal size.
Many women do not realize that the feminine hygiene products they use are the culprits of their vaginal discomfort. The vagina is self-cleansing and continually produces fluid that “flushes” the vagina. When a tampon is inserted, its composition of rayon and cotton absorbs your vagina's protective fluid, drying out and disrupting its normal pH levels.
When used as directed, The DivaCup is a more sanitary feminine hygiene solution to tampons or pads. Latex-free, plastic-free, BPA-free, odor-free and free of colors and dyes, The DivaCup is made from healthcare grade non-absorbent silicone, which means it will not dry out or disrupt the natural environment of your vagina.
