Directions

(This is a condensed version of the User Guide. Customers receive a full version with purchase of The DivaCup.)

On your first trial with The DivaCup, make sure you are relaxed and have time to read the User Guide thoroughly beforehand. Insertion and removal will only take a few seconds once you master the technique.

Wash your hands well with warm water and soap. Rinse. While sitting or standing in a comfortable position, insert your DivaCup according to the following instructions.


Step 1: Fold - Moisten the rim of The DivaCup with water if needed. Press the sides of the cup together and then fold it in half again.
 
Step 2: Hold - Hold the folded sides firmly between your thumb and forefinger. The single curved edge should be facing away from your palm.


Step 3: Insert - With the vaginal muscles relaxed, gently separate the labia with your free hand and then push the curved edge of the folded DivaCup into the vaginal opening.

Step 4: Removal - Wash your hands well with warm water and soap. Rinse. Pull gently on the stem until you can reach the base of the cup. Pinch the base of the cup to release the seal and continue to pull down to remove. The contents should not spill during removal. Simply empty the contents in the toilet, wash it well with warm, soapy water, and reinsert.

Please note: If The DivaCup is uncomfortable or leaking, then it is not positioned properly. In order to get the best results it is very important to insert it correctly.

 

How do I clean The DivaCup?


The DivaCup should always be thoroughly cleaned. Washing the cup in mild soap and warm water provides sufficient cleansing. The best cleaning agent to use is The DivaWash. We have formulated it as a pH balanced wash that is best for the cup and you, because it does not leave residue. Remember to wash your hands before inserting and removing your DivaCup.

 

The DivaCup’s top quality, healthcare grade silicone can tolerate high temperatures. At the end of each cycle The DivaCup should be washed and rinsed as specified and then submerged in an open pan of boiling water (continuous rolling boil) for twenty (20) minutes. Do not leave the boiling pot unattended and use enough water so that the pan does not boil dry. Do not use vinegar, tea tree oil, scented soap, antibacterial soap, hydrogen peroxide, bleach or harsh chemicals as these may damage the silicone and ruin the cup. 
 
We do not recommend cleaning The DivaCup in the dishwasher because chemicals, detergents and residue from previous dishwashing could harm the cup.

 

After use and proper cleaning, the cup must be placed in a storage that allows for air flow. The DivaCup comes with its own drawstring cotton pouch.

 

The four holes under the rim are of vital importance. They create the seal that secures the cup in place. If the holes or stem need extra cleaning, we suggest that you soak the cup in warm water for a few minutes then use a soft toothbrush (specifically designated only for the cup) for this. You can also use a toothpick (discarding after use). We do not suggest a pin as it may cause damage to the cup.

BETTER Than Sliced Bread! I have owned and used my DivaCup for over 6 years now. The only problems that I have had are when I don't have it properly inserted. Getting it in just right takes some practice and I would recommend doing this during a time when you are *not* on your period. If I don't have it in just right, I can tell because I get a little dull ache in my abdomen. The trick it to make sure that it is not too far up and is not folded or stuck to itself. So, after inserting it, I grasp the bottom and twist it around a few times and then pull out until the stem is *almost* protruding out, but not quite. This seems to be the "sweet spot" for me at least. When wearing this, it's like you're not even on your period. There are no pads, no strings, no sign at all that you are bleeding. Great for long trips or even for endurance sports. I've run marathons with this thing in! Nothing could be more discreet. This is an amazing value and great for the environment, plus no embarrassing pads or tampons to dispose of or for the dog to get into the trash and tear up. I love this product and can't recommend it enough! June 17, 2014
Patience will bring great rewards I'm 37; no children; small frame; been using the DivaCup for 2 yrs. It was my first cup; no need to try another brand in my opinion. I followed the instructions and got Model 2 despite never having gone through childbirth, and it fits just fine. The trick is that you have to be very comfortable with your body, all its parts, and not being shy about touching your labia. I have no problems doing it a public restroom, so long as I can wash my hands beforehand and plan how I need to proceed in a sterile manner. Meaning- do it at home first and be patient with the results. I put off buying it for years because I didn't understand how it wouldn't be a messy disaster. You have to develop a plan on how to use it and navigating from the toilet to the sink and back to the toilet. And I seem to fill it more often than the packaging notes. If it seems like it's leaking a little or if I get crampy, 9 times out of 10 I just need to empty the cup and reinsert. Simple as that. Most times, I don't even necessarily need to empty it in public; maybe once on heavy days. Understand where your cervix is and relearn what your mother most likely taught you about your period. You really don't have to get into any more of a squat than when you use a public restroom and hover or use a tampon. If you give it a little bit of time and a little bit of patience, it really can be rewarding to use a cup and not cotton that's been treated with chemicals. I feel like I even learned more about my body and more of what's going on during my period. All the while, it's freeing because you put the cup in and can be done with it. February 27, 2014
Learning curve This is a good product however I have a love/hate relationship with it. You really have to get the hang of it and it may take a few periods before you do. This is quite difficult to insert and if you do it wrong it will slip out. Once it is in properly it is great and you can wear it for hours comfortably. It is a little time consuming to take out, wash, and put back in, so I don't even feel like messing with it on light days. I think its more useful on heavy days. I don't recommend it for someone who isn't comfortable with their anatomy down there. January 21, 2014
Happy Periods I recently started using the Diva Cup and I am loving it! My first cycle was a little rough, but after figuring out how to insert and remove it, things are going smoothly now. I love not having to worry about having tampons and pads with me and it is also better for the environment. Some tips- Experiment with the fold-one may be easier for you to insert than the other. Relax! If you tense up when removing it is harder to get out. Use some lubrication (coconut oil is great!) for insertion to prevent irritation. Wear a pad as a backup during the first few cycles until you figure out how often to empty it. August 18, 2013
Worth the try & the buy I purchased this product after I read a medical article about all the dioxins and carcinogens we are exposed to through tampons and maxi pads. I am 46 years old, have had two children through drug-free home births, and am comfortable with the functions of my body. Since I am still menstruating as regularly (if not more so) as I did in my twenties, but am now very interested in getting prepared for menopause, I like to chart my periods and flow in order to be on top of any changes that might signal the "change". I am also very concerned about the landfill and waste problem within our culture (avid environmentalist). For all these reasons, I decided to purchase the Diva Cup. It came in a pretty little patterned purple bag with a swirled purple pin. It seemed large to me at first. The silicone is medical grade and very smooth. I set it aside until the day my period came. Nervous about insertion, I had carefully read the instructions several times and looked at images to help me visualize the correct location and placement of the cup. I really had nothing to worry about. It was so easy to insert that I got the hang of it on my VERY FIRST TRY. Obviously, I ordered Model 2, and I folded it as directed. I used it at the first sign of my period, so even though there wasn't the same amount of lubricating flow that I need for tampon insertion, it slid in very easily. Over the next couple of days, I had to get the hang of where in my body it was best "seated". I noticed that, when it was full, the added weight made it "ride low", which I could feel. This was a helpful indication that it was time for a bathroom visit. My first day and night wearing it, I noticed that my cramping seemed to be worse than usual, so I went back to the internet and found out that lots of women had the same issue, which was fixed very easily by pushing the cup in farther. I think, ideally, it should be higher than the enclosed instructions recommend. The manufacturer insert says that the stem should be no more than 1/2 inch away from the opening, but it is most comfortable if it is an inch up or higher. I liked how clean the process was. During my entire period, I didn't have to mess with bloated tampons, wrapping them and the pads to dispose of in the garbage (if you don't already do this, you should, because despite conventional wisdom, tampons are NOT biodegradable in septic systems, even city ones, and cause all kinds of problems). While wearing the cup, for the first time in my life, I actually felt like I didn't have my period. You never realize how conscious you are of a tampon inside you (even though you don't feel it) and a pad on your undies until you use a menstrual cup like this. Also, tampons always leaked on me, so I always had to pair them with a sanitary pad. This cup never leaked. And since the menses flow never comes into contact with air while the cup is worn, any odor is now nonexistent! It is most convenient in your bathroom where you can wash your hands and the cup before re-insertion, but I used it on a hiking trip where I had to use a port-a-potty as well as an outdoor campground toilet, and I never had any problem. After emptying it, I just wiped it clean with a piece of toilet tissue and popped it back in. I liked how I could actually see and keep track of exactly how much menstrual flow was being collected. I think this is another helpful way of managing one's health and being able to catch symptoms of reproductive issues like fibroids, endometrial problems, and the like early on. It made me feel proud again of my body's functions and my health and appreciate the wonder of my period. I discovered that, yes, like other women have found, the cup's stem is sort of useless and can be annoying because of how long it is, so I trimmed it with scissors. For example, I couldn't feel the cup during wear while I was walking to standing, but once I began squatting during weight lifting, sitting, or doing yoga, I could definitely feel it poking around, and that was bothersome. Since our canal is not much longer than our finger length, we don't need the stem, anyway. It is super-easy to just reach in there and grasp the narrow base of the cup when needed to twist it for engaging the seal or pinch it for releasing the seal when removing it. Before I trimmed it, I also experimented with turning the cup inside out -- something that had helped others -- but this made it a little too slippery for me during removal. It otherwise solved the problem, though. I like this thing so much that I want to buy another. I highly recommend it as yet another gift that we women can take advantage of in order to be better to ourselves, be healthier, be more at ease during our monthly cycles, and be happier.
