Hello all! I am proud to say that today is my first day of using my diva cup! It was a bitch to get in.. but it has been in for a few hours so far and I don't see any signs of leakage (my flow is pretty heavy right now). My problem is the stem is sticking out a little bit, and I'm not sure if it is simply because its too long for my body, or if I don't have the cup pushed up enough(i cant really push it in anymore.. and I'm a little sore from all the failed attempts to get it in there). If it is not leaking does that mean it is in the proper place and I should just trim the excess stem off? I am kind of amazed that it is working for me already.. most posts I see people having leakage problems for months until they get the hang of it. Maybe it's just beginners luck.. I guess I'll see when I go to empty it and put it back in!
