I have the keeper and the divacup, started off with the keeper and post partum bought a diva cup because it was prettier Honestly I liked the keeper better, but only because the divacup has ridges down by the stem and it really irrated me where I had had a tiny tear after birth, even though the tear was supposedly healed. I just trimmed the long stem on the keeper.

I have only used the Diva Cup and for only one AF but I am really loving it. So comfortable and so easy to forget about. It was great.

Just casting my vote for the Diva cup. I used it for 4 years before I got pregnant with my dd and I only had it leak twice. It also comes with a little pin, which in our house means watch out I'm feeling b@tchy.

I had a keeper before I had my DS and loved it! I actually looked forward to getting my period because I thought it was so cool to use (yes, I know, a bit strange ). I just received my Diva in the mail and have yet to use it. I bought a Diva this time around because I like that the silicone can be boiled if need be.

I loved my keeper & used it for over a year before I developed a reaction to the latex . Let me tell you that you do not want an allergic reaction down there.... it was miserable! I bought a diva and think it's even better, it feels more flexible & didn't leak any more than the keeper ( I have a day of VERY heavy flow so I use cloth back-up that day). I also like that it can be boiled... and that it's clear for some reason .

I've used the Diva Cup for over four years, and I absolutely love it. I have a pretty heavy flow, so I do use cloth as a backup, but I've only ever had a couple of leaks, and those were overnight. I'm telling you: it's almost like not having AF - I would never go back to tampons. I really like that I can boil the Diva Cup to sanitize.

How long did it take you to feel comfortable using the Diva? Or was it right away?

Right away! I had a keeper first and could never get it to fit right--I always had leaks, even on light days, I trimed and trimed the stem until it was gone, but the Keeper still wasn't comfortable. I almost gave up on natural menstrual products but decided to give the Diva cup a go. And I LOVE it! Its like not having a period.

I have a DivaCup and love it. I have not tried the others.

Having now tried the Mooncup UK, the DivaCup and the Keeper Moon Cup- I have to say that I much prefer the Mooncup UK.

The DivaCup was nice but too long for my anatomy. I had to use a sterilized straight pin to finish poking the holes in the Keeper Moon Cup and it still tries to suction itself to my cervix. It is a softer silicone and it just doesn't "pop" open easily like the Mooncup UK.

I'm going to give the Keeper Moon Cup another chance next month but so far I much prefer the UK cup.

I started with a Keeper a few years ago and developed a latex allergy as a result. Even cheap bandaids give me a rash now and those old-fashioned hot water bottles make me wheeze. I was so glad to discover the DivCup when it came out, and now that I've trimmed the stem off I like it even more. I use mini pantyliners from lunapads as 'just in case' back up, but don't generally have a problem with leaks. The divacup also has a good help line and return policy so it's a safe bet for beginners

Here is my review which discusses several of the points mentioned. In short, I prefer the stem of the Diva cup (shorter) vs. the Keeper. Also, since latex allergies are acquired through exposure over time, I personally would opt for a silicone cup over rubber regardless of the cup "design."

The first cycle took some getting used to, but now I love my Diva and can't imagine going back to tampons. No more "dryness" after a period, no leaking, no odor, no sticky pads, Life with a period is just a lot easier!
PS- we went camping last weekend and AF came along for the ride, Have you ever tried to use "feminine hygiene products" out in the woods with very little privacy and worrying about wildlife? I have fallen in love with the DIVa all over again!

I like the Keeper's Moon Cup. I have the diva and the keeper moon cup. I don't like the diva because of the small stem. I have issues grabbing it and make a complete ass of myself at home when I try. I do much better with the Keeper Moon Cup.

I just had my first postpartum period and I used a Diva Cup for the first time. It worked well, but I hate the stem! The instructions say that you can trim it, but can't cut it off completely. Does anyone know why I shouldn't cut it all the way off?
