How many years can you use the diva cup before you have to toss it?

Q. What is the lifespan of The DivaCup? When should I replace The DivaCup?
A. Because of the personal, hygienic nature of the product, we recommend that a menstrual cup be replaced at least once a year, depending on the factors unique to each woman like vaginal pH, how well and often the cup is cleaned, what cleansing agents are used, etc. The U.S. FDA requires us to provide women our informed opinion based on our experience concerning all aspects of our product. Other personal care items like contact lenses and toothbrushes are replaced regularly; similarly, a year’s use of a menstrual cup represents 120-160 uses! Our long experience in the menstrual cup category, as well as consulting tens of thousands of women on the use of menstrual cups, lead us to indicate a yearly replacement. Ultimately, it is still up to the consumer to decide when she feels it is necessary to replace the cup.

This is a new one for me.  So, I have to ask, how does it work?  What are the benefits?  I've never even heard of the product.

 Here is the full site on the diva cup!

http://www.divacup.com/

you use it inside like a tampon, it collects your flow, you can use it for a full 12 hrs straight, empty it, rinse and reinsert for another 12 hrs.  im going to use mama cloth while home, and the diva cup while out.  i've heard nothing but great reviews on this so i thought i'd give it a try to ease the cost of my "supplies".

I've been using mama cloth since February and got my diva cup last month.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!!  I have TLS (tubal ligation syndrome) which causes extremely heavy periods.  I soak a super plus tampon in 1 1/2 hrs.  I can wear my diva cup for 3 hrs without leaking.  It is very comfortable.
