Hi!  I just got my first Divacup, after ordering it on a whim last week.  I was somewhat afraid of it not being the right cup for me, since I didn't do any research on other brands before ordering it.  Luckily, the Diva appears to be working very well for me so far.  I'm on the last days of my period, so my flow isn't has heavy, but I just took the Diva out after three hours, and there was a small but successful collection of blood in the bottom.  I found the punch-down fold works for me the best.

However, I do have a question.  When using a cup for the first time, is it common to become sore after the first couple inserting and removing trials?  And has anyone experienced it to be slightly painful to urinate afterwards?  I'm a virgin, and have no reason, or have never had any type of infection.  I've experienced the same kind of soreness and urination discomfort after landing in the horse saddle wrong after going over a jump. :P  I'm pretty sure the pain is just caused by my body adjusting to the new intruder, so to speak, but I'm just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience.
