Today has been HORRIBLE with my DivaCup. I posted earlier about how it was in wrong and I bled all over myself at work, and resorted to a tampon. Well, tonight before bed, I tried to give my cup another shot. That was an hour and a half ago. I've seriously been fucking with the damn thing for that long. It's ridiculous, I'm so frustrated. I want this to work, it's such a great idea! But omg what is wrong with it. Yesterday, day one, it worked just fine. I don't even know what I did, I just stuck it in and it was fine. Tonight I inserted it twenty times and couldn't get it to pop at all, or it popped, but I thought I felt dents. And I seriously can't tell what the right angle is. I felt around for my cervix, but nothing in there feels like the end of my nose. So I'm just aiming like this: while sitting on the toilet, I'm trying to keep the cup horizontal to the floor. Somebody told me to do it like that. It's in now, finally. But I can totally feel. Am I supposed to feel it? And I think it's popped, but who the hell knows. I guess I'll find out by the state of my sheets in the morning.

Does it get any better? Because right now I'm feeling that when it works, it works great. But the problem I'm having is that I can't tell when it ISNT working until its too late (ie: I've made an embarrassing mess). I don't want to have to be worrying all the time about whether or not I'm leaking all over the place.

Argggggh. Sorry about the bitching, guys. I'm just mad because  I wanted to be asleep an hour ago but wouldn't give up on the damn cup. I'm also fretting that I may end up having spent $25 dollar on something that won't work for me. Poop!

Anyway, good night ladies. I'll let you know whether or not my bed looks like a crime scene in the morning.
