shorter periods?

I combed the tag list and couldn't find where this would fit appropriately, though I know it's been discussed before. I also feel like there was a poll a few weeks ago, but I can't find that either! If anyone could point me to other posts about this, that would be great! :-)

So, who has noticed their period is shorter now that they are using a menstrual cup? Mine is absolutely shorter (by at least 2 days). My theory is that when I remove my cup, since I don't break the seal right away the suction helps to pull the blood out of me faster... as opposed to letting it come out on it's own onto a pad. (I never used tampons before my cup, only pads. I wonder if that would make a difference?) If your periods are shorter as well, what are your theories about why this happens?
