Menstrual Cupapalooza! Review and Giveaway of the Diva Cup

Welcome back to my menstrual cup series!  Today's review is for the Diva cup.  

The Diva cup is a reusable menstrual cup made of high quality silicone in Canada.

 I bet many of you cup fans were waiting for this review!  There isn't much I can say about the Diva cup that you won't already know, because the Diva cup is one of the most popular cups out there.  In fact, many women I have talked to had no idea there where other cups beside the Diva! 

Like most cups, the Diva cup comes in two size.   The Large Diva cup is one of the longest cups on the market, making it great for someone with a high cervix and /or heavy flow. The stem on the large cup is relatively short, and both the base of the cup and the stem are covered in ridges to aid in gripping the cup.  The Diva cup is, so far, the longest and softest cup I have tried.   The softness does, in my opinion, make inserting the cup very easy and painless.  I personally do not have a problem getting the cup to unfold using any fold EXCEPT the punch down fold.  The cup is simply too soft to pop open with this fold in my experience.  

The Diva cup is a little bit more V shaped as opposed to bell shaped, compared so some of the other cups I have tried.  This can be a great thing for someone who wants a little bit of slimmer cup to make sure they don't feel it. 

To sum this all up, I like my Diva cup.  I love that this company is so well known, (and for good reason) and because of that it has opened up the world of menstrual cups to many women.   However, on days where my cervix is particularly low, the Diva cup is just too long for me to use.   If you have a a high or average length cervix, have a moderate to heavy flow, or like a soft cup, the Diva cup might be a good choice for you.
