Easy to insert
Can't feel it inside you
Worst menstrual cup that I have ever used. Constantly leaks.
I've used a different brand of menstrual cup before I purchased diva and have not had any issues with it. HOwever using Diva has been a really terrible experience and I would not recommend it to anyone, please purchase Luna cup instead.
I am constantly having leaks with diva, it does not open up properly when inserted inside, even if you try to adjust it. It's embarrassing because a number of times I have inserted it and went out only to find out I was having a major leak and has a blood spot on my pants.
I know this is not because I am using it incorrectly as I never had this issue with other menstrual cups.
I don't know what is wrong with it, but it is certainly not suitable for its intended purpose.
GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK!

Waste of money!!!
Diva cup size 2 overflowed after less than 3 hours as my menstrual flow is heavy and the cup capacity of 30 ml is unsuitable. When I removed it there was clearly more flow than the cup could ever hold. This is made for 8 hours wear??? Impossible. If you have a heavy flow this product will not work. I’m very disappointed with their false advertising.

6 months in and it leaks
The first 4 times were great no problems so I feel confident I know how to use properly. But the last 2 times it continually leaked. It has 4 small holes at the top which are very ordinary to clean. Love menstrual cups just not this one, reliving my teens with constant leaks was a traumatic nightmare

**It's stuck** Do your research. Alot of horror stories and there.
It's comfortable, easy to wear and easy to insert. Yesterday I had a leak within 30 minutes and tried to remove it. I couldn't though, it was stuck and had moved too far up that I couldn't reach. It felt like it was on the side aswell. I tried for 15 minutes with no luck before I had to ask my boyfriend to help. He tried for 15 minutes also and at times was painful but he finally removed it and I was so tender. Being so expensive and it's not in me to quit, I tried again today. No leaks, inserted it lower so that the bottom of the cup was right...at the opening. ITS STUCK AGAIN. I've tried for 15 minutes and can't remove it. I've tried 'birthing' it and pushed so hard that I now have hemorrhoids. I'm helpless, frustrated and disappointed. It's been a terrible experience and I hope I can get this thing out.

Actually I have Diva cup 2, after having two kids.
I only wish I bought one earlier! I bought this on impulse and never looked back. It’s amazing. No leaks at all. Easy to insert. Environmentally sound. Economical. Fabulous product.

Best thing invented
I hated using pads, tampons were obviously the next best thing but with the waste and cost was ridiculous. Got the diva cup and mastered it in a day! I still have a little leakage but that is only when I wipe not on my underwear. If you follow the instructions you'll be able to do it as well! One tip I found really helpful the rotating 360 definitely works and also having a clean towel to help clean yourself if you arent in the toilet. Towel also helps to grab it if you are struggling to get out also! Definitely recommend for anyone wanting to spend less and stop waste :)

After 10 years of tampons and pads, I don’t know why I didn’t switch sooner.
So after watching countless videos on YouTube and reading countless reviews, I decided to buy a Divacup.
After 10 years of using mostly tampons, I was tired of the scratchy feeling they gave me upon removal and the germy moist string that hung below.
Let me tell you. This is the best thing that’s ever happened to my period. Why?
- WAY less odour
- EASY application (if you are comfortable and knowing about your “parts”)
- Up to 12 hours without emptying
- Once you’ve mastered the suction, you’re golden for acrobatic sleep positions, no worries for your sheets!
- COMFORTABLE! Tampons would often cause me pain after shifting. ...

I tried this because I am a college student and wanted to find ways to cut budget. SOOO easy, cheap, comfortable and practical! I have a heavy flow and this helped a lot.

Not enough grip
I’ve been using menstrual cups for over 10 years so I thought I’d try the Diva Cup. It didn’t work for me. There was always leakage,I found it harder to insert than other brands and always felt uncomfortable. Upon examination, I realised the thick ring at the top of the cup was thinner than other brands hence it did not grip as strong as other brands. I cannot trust the Diva cup so have discontinued use.
Best thing ever!
Love this cup so much! Easy to use and keep clean.. no leaks or issues AT ALL! Has made the period-dread disappear :) Don't hesitate to get one!! Best invention ever!
The diva cup causes me so much pain that persists and worsens throughout the course of my period, not to mention it makes me so unbelievably bloated I look pregnant. It’s a stupid product and there is absolutely no helpful articles about this issue I’m having because “bloating” and “cramps” are normal when you are on your period.... NOT when they are this extreme. This is my 3rd cycle using the diva cup and I hate it almost MORE than I did when I first tried it. Super annoyed that I spent $40 on this product when it literally makes being on my period 10x worse than its ever been. Thanks diva cup!!
a bit to hard for me
The Diva cup is a little harder than others I have tried, so not for me but the quality was good.
the size is a good fit just not the hardness
It was one of best things I had found. I did not have many problem learning how to use it and it just works perfectly for me. Highly recommended for everyone
I wish I found it sooner!
Goodbye expensive, uncomfortable, planet polluting tampons and pads, hello diva cup!
I'm going to sound like a rep for menstrual cup company's here but I assure you I am not haha! **Um, diva cup company if you're reading this perhaps offer me a job? I am your biggest fan, I'd make a great rep haha
Honestly ladies, do yourself a favour and take the plunge into the world of the menstrual cup. Periods can become a much more comfortable, manageable event on your monthly calendar.
The cup is easy to insert (with a tad of practice), it is ...completely comfortable (I can't feel it at all when placed correctly but I will note that I trimmed off the little stem as it can irritate but without it, no probs), it only needs to be emptied 12 hourly (I shower morning and evening and empty and re- insert in the shower, easy and mess free), you can sleep comfortably without the guilt of wearing a tampon to bed (I used to do this and panic about toxic shock), it saves you so much money in the long run and it is healthier for your body! Get onboard, you won't regret it!
Nothing short of AMAZING!
This is the first time ive used the diva cup and its nothing short of amazing!
Its soft and super easy to insert. I have a pretty heavy flow so i was a bit worried about leaking but it hasnt leaked once. I love the convenience of only having to empty it and wash it every 12 or so hours and theres no plastic waste.
I doubt I'll ever use pads again and im definitely getting my friends onto it.

- They also said that it was comfortable and couldn’t be felt when it was inside - with some cup wearers saying that it stayed in place regardless of how they contorted their body.
A pain point:
- Some reviewers said that it leaked well before the 8 hour mark - while this may be an issue with the design, it may also be that the cup has overflown for users with a heavy flow. In the case of the latter, try changing your cup more frequently.
