I'm new, so let me introduce myself. Me: 31, no kids (yet), just got through my first cycle with Diva size 2. A few minor teething issues this first cycle, but all in all, very successful.
Here's the rub: On the third night of my cycle, I woke up in quite a bit of pain in my pelvic floor. I didn't think much of it and chalked it up to getting used to the cup. It wasn't like menstrual cramp pain (I don't get cramps), but rather like a pulling sensation. The next day was fine, no pain or discomfort during the day. But the next night, the same pain woke me up again. In the interest of getting a decent night's sleep, I took out the cup for the rest of the night and the pain went away.
I have a feeling that when I lie down and my pelvis relaxes, the muscles naturally lengthen, and this may be resulting in the cup suctioning/pulling on my pelvic floor muscles and/or cervix and causing the pain. Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions? It seemed only to be an issue once my flow lightened up by night 3/4. Thankfully by that point I don't have to wear anything at night.
One other quick question--I'm going to France in the spring and will probably buy one of the Euro brands while I'm there. Does anyone know where to find them, in la pharmacie? Thanks!
