I can feel the cup...

New to menstrual cups... and I bought the diva cup 2. I really like it. I had good success my first cycle.  I would LOVE it if it weren't for the fact that I can feel it. Like in the pit of my stomach at all times. I am constantly aware it is there. I actually had a lymph node flare up in my neck while using it as well.

I use the punch down method and am able to give it a good turn during insertion. I dont get any leaks and I can easily reach up, break the suction and remove it. So I dont think I am having any issues with any of that. I boiled it before use and afterward and I always wash my hands before removal and insertion. I was it with mild soap when I am home and rinse it with water when I am at work. The stem doesn't bother me at all.

I was wondering if maybe I am doing something wrong? or maybe there is a better brand- something softer? Not sure what I would need, but not feeling it in my gut is the goal. Any suggestions?
