Cleaning Question


I just got my Diva cup a day or two ago and took it for a test run (I'm not menstruating but I wanted to see and feel how it works before my bleeding starts) and i have have a few questions.

First being when you have your cup in does it have to push your cervix back? My cervix sits almost at the opening of my vagina at the beginning of my cycle and when I put it in today it was pushed back. Just wondering.

Also how do you go about cleaning your cup if you have a very very heavy flow? I bleed through ultra super tampons in under four hours on days 2 and 3 and sometimes 4 of my period and I can fill a supper long pad in under 6 with no tampon. SO I will not be able to get up to clean my cup in warm water because then I think I may have blood running down my leg otherwise. Do I just wipe it clean and clean it really well at the end of my cycle?

Otherwise my test run went off without a hitch. I was able to get it in, positioned where I wanted it, get my IUD strings out of the way, and get it back out again.

Thanks for the help!
