been reading lots of suggestions, tried different things and still leaking! help


I bought my first diva cup size 2 a few days ago. I know I'm still learning but i'm getting fed up as it just keeps leaking no matter what I do. I tried flipping inside out: leaks worse. I tried repositioning, right side, then the left, pushing it back pulling it forward. I don't know what else to do. I read most of the posts in the threads so not sure what to do next.

My cervix seems to be low. I can touch it no problem and even drag my finger around the whole base of it. i'm 37 and never had kids. the leaks don't seem to be residual as it's bright red. I do collect quite a bit into the cup but it's never full, most was only half way.

Sometimes it seems to start leaking right away other times i'll feel a queef type feeling and then leakage maybe 30 mins 45 mins after insertion. sometimes more blood then other times. my pelvic muscles are pretty strong. I can do keegles without any problems and have been for a long time.

Anything else I can try? are there certain brands better then others for low cervix?

(no subject)

I'm extremely new to the whole idea of menstrual cups, let alone owning one.  I had never even heard of them until 4 days ago. My sister is also interested in having one, so I'm doing the information gathering for us both.

Trying to figure out which brand would be best, wondering if anyone has had any experience with the "Blossom" brand?  I've read both good & negative reviews on it, but I don't see any tags for that brand here.  Also wondering how it compares to the "Lunette", the "MeLuna" & the "Lena".  I've tried to read as many of the posts on these 3 brands as you all have here, but I am beginning to feel like I am in over my head.

I am 27, 2 kids vaginally birthed over 9lbs, relatively non-fit at 5'7" & 265lbs.  I am sensitive/suseptable to rashes, irritation, UTI's & vaginal spasms as well as having a significant latex allergy.  Sister is 19, virgin, super tall and thin at 6'0" 200lbs, no known allergies.  Both of us have very heavy flows... should really take out stock in feminine products lol

I am really not sure that you would need to know that stuff... but then again I'm really not sure what information I should share so that someone can give me an idea of what brand etc. to look deeper into...
