Hey! :) So I've had a Diva cup for...hmmm, maybe 6 or 7 months, and it's gone GREAT! I love the thing to death, I could kiss it. But I don't... Anyway, today my period came and so I went and got my cup. I put it in, but it felt really squishy and tight, then once it was actually in, I couldn't get it in as far as usual and it wouldn't open because it felt like there was no room for it. It was fairly painful. So I took it out, also a fairly painful experience, and tried again. With no luck. So then I just stuck in a tampon (unfortunately! :'( ) and that's been okay. I'm wondering what's going on, do you think tomorrow I will have better luck, should I keep trying today? I was thinking maybe it was just the posistion of my cervix today, but I really have no idea.... Thanks! :)

http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/2618390.html see this for popping open.

and as for your cervix position, well, have you looked for it? if it always was unreachable and still is, it's hard to tell... have you tried letting it open lower, before it's fully in? perhaps it was pressing on your cervix, which can be painful...

Your cervix could have been lower for the day. You can try if your Diva works better for you if it's flipped inside out, on days like this one.
