menstrual_cups

First time Diva user.

I started using the DivaCup this month. The first day I used it, I immediately had to cut the stem because it poked out and hurt me. It was a little more comfortable after that, but I found I was strangely dizzy all day-- until I took the cup out.

My cervix sits really, really low. This appears to be a problem-- my cervix ends up sitting inside the cup, and the cup tries to poke out the slightest bit. I think I was dizzy the other day because I was trying to push it up high enough that it wouldn't move out, so it was pushing my cervix up. I tried my cup again today and didn't push it up as high, and I haven't felt yucky... but I haven't been very comfortable either.

Also, I have a tilted uterus.

On the bright side, I haven't leaked at all.

Is there anything I can do to make this easier/more comfortable, or is the DivaCup just not for me?
