Somehow, at age 30, I JUST heard about this product! I am finding lots of info online about the Keeper....but I am irritated by latex. So, I am interested in trying the Diva Cup (silicone).<br><br>
Does the Diva Cup work as well? Is it comfortable? Irritating? Durable? Associated with infection? Worth the 30 bucks?<br><br>
Thanks!

I have both the Diva cup and the Keeper and they a basically identical except for the fact one is made of rubber and the other in silicone. I have not experienced infection with either. I for sure have more than gotten my money's worth from my purchase.<br><br>

If you are sensitive to latex, are you sensitive to rubber?<br><br>
According the the Keeper website, natural gum rubber is still latex.....so, no Keeper for me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
One criticism of the Diva Cup that I read was that silicone attracts small particles through static. Don't really know if that is true, or what that would mean in practical application?

I LOVE my diva cup! Very easy to use, comfortable (can't even feel it!) and durable. I've definitely gotten my money's worth. I did clip the stem short when I first got it because I could feel it, but one good clip with a pair of nail clippers and I now sometimes forget it's even there! Highly recommended!
