4.0 out of 5 stars Life-Changing! You just have to find the one for you., March 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Diva Cup Model 2 Menstrual Cup (Health and Beauty)
I would give this 5 stars for the concept, because the concept is awesome, and the Diva Cup is a good price compared to some other cups. However, the Diva Cup brand is not the one that ultimately worked for me, in part because of Diva Cup's own sizing instructions, so I give it 4 stars. I first bought the Diva Cup 2, because I am over 30. Diva Cup instructions and FAQ's insist that if you are over 30, you need model 2, even if you have not delivered a baby vaginally. Not true. Diva Cup 2 was way too big for me (and I have since read other reviewers saying the same thing). I could get it in, but no matter which of several folds I used, I could never turn it as the instructions say to, to create the seal. Also, it would never pop back open once inside, to create the seal and open the cup for collection, so it was a leaking mess. I read and reread the instructions to make sure I wasn't missing anything, and had my husband wondering what on earth kind of device was consuming so much of my time in the bathroom. Besides being too big, Diva Cup is the longest (or one of the longest) cups on the market. So the bottom of the cup (not the stem, but just the bottom of the cup) was situated at my pubic bone, so my bone was preventing it from reopening after insertion. The cup should fit in a "pocket" area slightly past the pubic bone, but I couldn't get the thing up that far. I am 5'7" so I was kind of surprised this length thing was an issue.

So after reading a lot of reviews (which I should have done before ever purchasing one, rather than just buying the popular one), I went looking for a shorter cup. YouTube has a few really good videos comparing 6-7 different cups, which I wish I had watched sooner. I ended up buying the Lunette model 1 (pre-childbirth), which costs more, but it is an ace fit for me (you can see my review on it, too).
