My period started today. I had brought my Diva cup model 2 a couple of days ago in anticipation of my period coming this week. I decided I would insert it while I was in the shower. I did the C-fold and found it to be pretty easy to insert. The stem stuck out a little but I could not feel it. For the rest of the day I checked for leaks luckily there were none. I did not have any discomfort at all I am so stoked since I been reading all of the possible problems some have experienced in the beginning. Around 7 hours in I had my first feeling of a leak so I went to the bathroom and decided to take cup out and it was full so I emptied and cleaned it and reinserted. I will empty it again before I go to bed so I do not have any accidents during the night. But so far I love the cup.
