After using my DivaCup on the last day of my period last month (with some issues, I probably inserted and reinserted it about 30 times), I noticed that immediatly after pulling out my diva cup and putting it away for the month, I started having some "peeing" issues. I would suddenly get the urge to pee and would run to the bathroom and only pee a few drops! My urethra felt so uncomfortable and "tense" and I had trouble falling asleep because of the "urge". I have never had a yeast or urinary infection and I am 27 and married. I usually wear tampons and I have never had that sensation. Is this because of my DIVA cup??? Anyone else have similar problems or sensations? The sensation eventually went away after two weeks but I am afraid it will happen again this month.
I tried to insert my DivaCup today (1st day of period) and i just couldn't get it right. I inserted it and the stem was sitting just OUTSIDE my labias (last month the stem wasn't even poking out of my vaginal opening). However, I did create a seal. I reached down and opened my labias to feel how close the "cup" actually was to my urethra and it was TOUCHING it!! IS that right??? Immediatly I pulled it out and heard the seal break. And then I tried and tried again...I can't seem to get it up far enough.
What the heck is going on with me? I am afraid to use my cup because I don't want to get that uncomfortable peeing sensation again.
ANY ADVICE?? Please!!
