Menstrual Cup Comparison: Diva Cup vs Lunette


| 11/28/2014 8:43:00 AM


Menstrual Cup Variety 

Menstrual cups have been around since the 1930s when Lenoa Chalmers patented the first one. Women didn’t take interest and they fell off the radar until the 60s to similar fanfare. It wasn’t until the 70s to mid-80s that reusable menstrual cups hit the market—and stuck. The Keeper was the first menstrual cup to succeed where others had failed and it's still widely available today.

Just the Facts

70 percent of American women use disposable feminine hygiene products. On average that equals 11,000 tampons or pads.
• For a box of 36 tampons, average prices hover around $7 per box.
• Tampons and pads must be changed at least every 6 to 8 hours to avoid leaks, health concerns and other unwanted problems.
Average menstrual cycle lasts 5 to 7 days, from ages 12 to 50.

Let’s assume every woman buys one box of tampons every month. That’s close to $90 per year. Given these figures, one woman is likely spend more than $3,000 on her period alone during her lifetime, not to mention the many other costs associated with female reproductive organs. Thankfully there’s a simple, affordable solution: reusable menstrual cups.

Now I know what you may be thinking:



“OMG, I am not sticking something up there!” or “No way, that’s so gross!”

I have been using diva cup for a year and I love it. I agree its awkward to insert and situate at first but after my first cycle I felt like a pro. I used to always get yeast infections from the chemicals in pads and tampons but never ever with diva cup. Its saves a ton of money, its very clean, it provide freedom all day, and it is better for the environment. I recommend this product all the time !
