I am on my 4th cycle with my Divacup2. What I have learned in the last 2 cycles is to sit down to do it. I have always been instructed to insert a tampon when standing, not sure where I got this from but sometimes I would leak past a tampon and it not even be wet. Now I figured out I was missing my cervix. So since I have started to sit - no leaks, easy insert and removal. I just can't believe it. I wish everyone I knew used the cup, I am the only one and in fact I think most would be embarrassed to even discuss it with me. I just started doing it because there had to be a better way, I tried it and so happy I did :) Best of luck to all the first timers.
