Menstrual Cup & Weight Loss

Hi All,

I recently lost about 40 lbs pretty quickly.  I've been using the Diva (larger size) for at least 6 months with no issues.  Now, for the past 3 cycles, it seems to be either slipping or sitting really low.  The stem is cut off, but there's a little 'nub' that's poking me.  Last month I also leaked which never happened before.

Now I know I can flip it inside out to avoid the poking, but does anyone know why the sudden change?  Is it beause of the weight loss?  Should I switch to a smaller size?  It's been fine so far for this cycle, but I don't want to have to worry every month either.  I refuse to wear tampons & after finding the cup, will never use pads again.

One other thing is that about 3 months ago, I got my first yeast infection ever...turns out I'm a diabetic.  Would either the diabetes or the infection (even though it's clear) cause it to ride so low?

Thanks for any help or info you may have!!  It's because of this site that I actually tried the cup & am ticked not that I didn't do it years ago!
