Hi- I've been lurking here for a few weeks. This is my first cycle with my DivaCup. It started off GREAT! First day, not a leak, even overnight I was fine. Then today, just when I thought I had the hang of it, BAM leaking constantly. My cervix is being a bitch and the cup is not sealing. It has taken several tries each time to stop the leaking. My cervix is WAY back and down today, which I am guessing is the cause for all of my fun bathroom excursions. I almost think it was easier before I knew how to find my cervix and try to place the cup over it. (Is that possible?) I'm not tensing my muscles when I insert. Removal is EXTREMELY easy. My cup never "pops" open on its own. That's fine, a finger around the rim to let air in and I'm fine. I'm really frustrated with all of the leaking. Any tips? I've tried everything I could read here. I keep thinking a bigger cup, but they don't make a bigger cup. My cervix is low, but it's still SO far back.
Also, even though today totally sucked. I am so much more in touch with myself. I never had a clue about anything going on with my girly bits until I got the cup. Now if I could just get it to seal!!
(I've also done the "pull it out a bit and then push it back up" trick, that seems to help some, when I can get it back over the cervix.)
Sorry for the length, but has anyone else had a certain day of their cycle when their cervix was just impossible to reach and had to use an alternative for that day every cycle?
I love my cup....almost completely.
