I got my Diva Cup in the mail last week. I had no clue when my period would start (I'm irregular), but luckily I started a few days after receiving it. I was so excited to try it out.
Now I'm just raaaaaging. I've tried inserting it every time I go to the bathroom. I've tried four different folds and several sitting/standing/squatting positions. All of them have been epic fail thus far.
I am very overweight (I saw a post about the same thing not too long ago, but it didn't really help me), but I have no trouble inserting tampons or vibrators.
If it helps at all, I am 21 years old and not a virgin.
So, every time I try to insert the Diva Cup, I experience BLINDING AGONY. Seriously. My eyes were watering the last time I tried. It feels like I'm trying to force it into a very small area. The few times I've managed to get it in and have it actually stay, walking around was extremely uncomfortable.
When I try removing it, there is more horrific pain.
I am so frustrated. I know some people say it takes awhile, but I've tried at least 3 times a day for the past 4 days and I feel like I should be somewhere further than wanting to throw the damn thing at a wall.
Advice? All comments are appreciated!
