You may have seen the infamous "moldy tampon" blog post and situation involving a major brand. (If you haven't, just do an internet search, it's REALLY gross!!) The truth is, do you REALLY know what you're putting into your body? I knew there had to be a more natural, or at least more body and environmentally friendly option that could be safe and reliable.
The DivaCup is a FABULOUS alternative to your average tampon. The DivaCup is a menstrual cup that pretty much does the same thing the tampons do, only it's collected in a little cup instead of in a wad of cotton (and who knows what else..yuck!). The DivaCup can be worn for up to 12 hours and, once you get the hang of it, is virtually leak proof! You can go about your business not worrying about knowing where the bathroom is "just in case," and yes, you can wear what you want without fear of ruining it!
What's it made of?
Since the DivaCup is made of silicone, it's safe for your body. It also doesn't disrupt your natural pH levels because your body doesn't consider it to be "foreign." There are no additives, no latex, no plastic and no BPA. This is about as good as it gets!
What's the cost and how long does it last?
Back to the money saving that I mentioned above, the DivaCup retails for about $39.99 (depending on where you decide to shop). It's "life" varies by user, but the general guidelines is to replace after one year. Going by that number, you're spending ABOUT $3 a month on your favorite week. Talk about a difference! How much are you spending now on products that leak and are potentially unhealthy for both your and the environment?
There are two available sizes of the DivaCup, the Model 1 for those who haven't had kids (or are under 30) and the Model 2 for women who have had children (c-section included) or are over 30.
The DivaCup can be purchased various places online and in stores. Here's a quick Amazon link -- the price is AMAZING right now!
