Cup use and libido, probably TMI

I am not known for having a high sex drive. When my partner and I lived together, we averaged about 3 times a week. We've been long distance for several years now, due to career choices, and average about 3 times a month. This isn't problematic for us and nothing we have ever considered negative. We just recognized that we have lower sex drives than what we assume to be average. I do masturbate regularly but that's basically "Ten mins, in and out, get the job done, and go to sleep".

I recently wrapped up my second cycle with my Diva Cup. The last day I used the Diva was Monday. For the past 3 days, I have been horny out of my mind. I literally laid in bed and masturbated for hours each day. This is very much *not* me. The only thing I can think of is the switch to the cup, and cloth pads for backup. Nothing else in my routine has changed. I didn't notice any out of the norm desire while menstruating, but now it's driving me crazy.

Is this entirely in my head? I did notice that I was *exponentially* wetter than usual (which has always been a problem for me), so is my vag just happier now that I'm not shoving cotton up there?

Thoughts anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
