I got the Diva and tried it out for the first time today. I put it in and took it out so many times today ...
-tons of leakage (not just spotting)
-I can constantly "feel" it. In fact, it's a bit painful, not just the feeling of it being there.
-I cut the stem once (to the first line) and again (to the second line) but I can still feel it.
-I tried it inside out but I end up pushing the bottom up inside the cup as I'm trying to get it in the right place
I think I might not be inserting it right, but I've tried a few different folds and nothing seems to work. I don't know if I'm not getting the suction or what.
Thanks for your help! I'll be so excited if (when) I can get the hang of this. I was so disappointed to have to get out my pads and tampons again today :(
ETA: Thanks for the encouragement. I am on day 5, and it's going much more smoothly. I figured out that I have to aim it to the left a bit so it's under my cervix. It's still a bit uncomfortable putting it in and taking it out, but I think it will get easier each time. Oh and I cut the stem completely off :)
