That was probably two years ago, and I thought I'd give it a go again since everything seems to be settled down with the IUD. So this morning I inserted my old Diva, and yup. Cramps right away. They're really mild, more uncomfortable than painful. I'm going to give it a day and see if I think it's worth it. I really don't want to keep using tampons, and I'm on the road so reusable pads are not a good option for me until I have a stable home, (which may be as soon as this winter!)
In the meantime, is there anything I can do about these cramps? Try a different style of cup, maybe?
