I am currently using (and have been for the past 18 months) a large size Diva cup. However, even with the stem cut off, it was too long, so I wear it inside out. That kind of screws up things when I look at the sizing chart, especially because when the Diva is inside out, I can push the middle of the cup inwards/upwards to make it even shorter if I'm having a low cervix day. So an inside out Diva is fairly flexible length wise.
Also, I usually have a day and a half of heavy flow, where I empty my Diva every 2 hours or so. But then I have about 5 days of really slow flow. Sometimes it even stops for a day, then I get a couple gushes the next day, so I leave it in for quite a long time.
However, it isn't really working for me anymore. I don't want to wear my cup inside out, I want a cup that just fits. So...
1. If you've been an inside-out Diva wearer, what other cup worked for you?
2. Does anyone have a seperate cup for light days and heavy days? Does it make sense to have a smaller cup for those days and use a bigger one the other days? Maybe I should stick to the inside out Diva for heavy days, and buy a shorter (but still wide) light days cup. Or is this completely ridiculous?
3. How long can you expect to use a cup, years wise? As in, does a Diva cup last 2 years, 10 years? Mine has always been lovely and not smelly or anything (it's stained sightly yellowish, but that doesn't bother me), but
