This is my first time using a menstrual cup for my period. I have the Large Diva Cup and was very excited about using it this time. My perios started yesterday and inserting with the push down has not been a problem but it seems to go in very deep after a while. It is so deep that I can not even get to the stem unless I bare down. My main issue besides this is cup overflow. Yesterday I had to change my cup every two hours because it would leak and I could feel it spilling on my pad. Luckily I wore a pad as a back up as I do with my Super Plus Tampons. When I took the cup out each time it was completely full. Last night I leaked so much on my pad and had to change 3 times through the night. Each time the cup is completely full. I was under the impressions that you did not need to change the cup as much as a Tampon. I never had to change my Tampon every hour even on a heavy day. It was more like every 3 hours with a Super Plus tampon. The blood is so thin and is all liquid. When I wear a Tampon the blood seems to be think and clotty. I am thinking that is why I have to change more often. My purpose for wearing the cup is to not use tampons and pads anymore. I seems to need to change my pad every two hours this is defeating the purpose. If I use reusable pads I will run out after a few hours. Any suggestions. WHy is my cup filling so fast? Is the cup up too far? Please help. Thanks.
