Question about sizing:

On the DivaCup website it says to order model one if you have never given birth vaginally. I ordered this size and I just noticed that on the package of my Divacup it says that it is model one, and underneath it it says for women who have had vaginal childbirth.

Therefore, I think I have the wrong size but I'm confused as to why the site says model one. Or maybe I just read something wrong?

This might be a dumb question, but thanks for the help!

Yay! I have finally decided to get a cup!

I ordered my Diva Cup from Feminine Options, a neat-o online store that I got my washable pads form. I can't wait until I get it! I hope it gets here soon, like Monday or Tuesday. I just started so I won't get a "dry" test. But it will be fun none the less. And I won't have to buy tampons ever again, hopefully. I just hope I can get it in right. I have read on her that some people have been having problems and I hope I don't. I'm in college so saving money is must.

Anyways, I'm just gushing with happiness and excitement, among other things. Thanks.

Hey everyone! I'm a complete newbie to menstrual cups, and I just have one quick question. I'd appreciate it SO mcuh if you could help me out!

I'm trying the Instead cup for the first time today, and I'm just not sure if it's in correctly. (aka, covering my cervix). I folded it in half, and it hooks behind my pubic bone...but I also can't feel the back of it, so I'm assuming that the cup is covering everything.

I can't help but be a tiny bit paranoid about leakage when it feels likes the cup is just sitting up against the top of my vagina. And tips/hints about knowing if it's inserted properly? (Besides waiting to see if I leak blood all over/there's blood in the cup?)
