Back again!

Hi all!

So I made a post about a month ago, describing my "not-so good luck" with Insteads.

So I got my divacup, pre-childbirth because I'm 21 and have never had a child (I might mention that I got my cup from $22 in total, and it took only 2 days to arrive) . I didn't really have any trouble getting it in or removing it. I used the origami method (put it in a little horizontally,rotated it 360 degrees both ways, pulled it down a bit, and pushed it back.) It was working great until my heavier than all get out flow hit and I had major leakage (my period usually lasts 3 1/2 days, if that gives you an idea). I figured it was in right because some did catch in the cup and it worked before the heavy flow hit, and on light days.

I figured it may be the suction so I widened the holes a little. Still no change.

So I'm thinking I should go back and order the Diva Cup size 2? (I could care less how big my vagina is, as long as the cup can catch my heavy flow!) But if it's a problem with suction, that maybe I should get the mooncup uk? Since a lot of people complain about it having too much suction? Or should I wait and see what happens until my next period? Or am I doing something wrong? Also, if anyone knows of a cheap place to buy the mooncup/keeper please let me know.

Thanks, in advance.
