Hi all! I have been lurking here for a week or so (just after I read about Diva Cups elsewhere) and am happy to report...I love it! I ordered it last week in the large and ended up having to go out of town before it got here. It was waiting when I returned home yesterday and I was on day 3 of my period, but I figured I'd give it a try. I'm fairly familiar with my body so I quickly found my cervix and inserted the cup. I admit I was a bit nervous about leaks and wore it for a few hours. It didn't leak at all. I did sleep with a pad but have worn it all day today and even emptied it once so far. At this point my period is not very heavy so the cup isn't filling, but it is definitely doing it's job and I haven't even had a spot on my panty liner.

I am so thrilled to have found this and cannot be happier with my choice to use my Diva Cup! (I am however eyeing those pretty colored cups too, lol)

New to cups, and gotta go go go!

Hi all, just wanted to say that so far, I've been enjoying the cup experience (minus a little stabby extra piece on the stem of the small Diva). However, I've had to use the bathroom every two hours. It's in a place it's working, but even from when I put it in, I can tell that it's pushing somewhere on my bladder. Any suggestions for me? Don't want to give up on it, but in my job I can't go to the bathroom whenever I want. So yes...needing help.

Thanks!
