Diva Cup versus The Keeper

Updated on February 28, 2007

For a woman dealing with menstrual cycles there aren't many options besides tampons or sanitary pads. I have found that The Keeper and The Diva Cup both offer an alternative that will not only benefit the user physically, but also financially. These options allow you to purchase a product one time, and use it again and again. Now to decide which one is right for you.

The Keeper is all natural, made of gum rubber and contains no animal byproducts. The Diva Cup is made of a soft silicone that is latex free. Both of these are bendable and perfectly safe for internal use. The Keeper is $35 and offers a 3 month return period if you are unhappy. The Diva Cup is $32.50 and offers a 1 year satisfaction guarantee. Compare these to a box of tampons (around $5) or a package of sanitary pads (again around $5) and you will recoup your initial cost in approxiamately 7-8 months. These products are generally good for 10 years. This can be quite the savings over time.

There are many reasons why tampons are not good for your body including containing chemicals such as dioxin or bleach, contributing to toxic shock syndrome, and disrupting your body's natural moisture levels. The damage tampons do to your septic or sewer system and the environment are high as well.

Both of these products are easy to use and require no extra time or effort over the disposable counterparts. They are also very comfortable and you can quickly forget you have one in. Another benefit is that you don't need to empty it very often (once or twice daily), compared with changing a tampon 4-6 times a day.

Financially these products make perfect sense. You do not have a recurring expense each month and you do not have to make a trip to the store to purchase them. If you do not have one already I highly recommend considering either The Diva Cup or The Keeper. It is good for the pocketbook and it makes life easier.

      I'm glad there's a hub out there about this! I use the Diva Cup and love it and am always trying to spread the word, because it just makes so much sense! Haven't heard much about the Keeper, but I'm sure its just as great. Thanks and great hub!
