Hi y'all! Its been a while since I have last posted. I got the Diva, and... well... its not my cup of tea. I feel it. I have put that thing every which way inside of me... it kinda rides low, so I turned it inside out. Its fine as far as length goes, holds all it is supposed to and does not leak.

But... I'm having some problems that I never used to have. Mainly, cramping. The cramping is not really cup related, it happens regardless. I'm getting really sensitive during my period. And the cup... I just FEEL it and it hurts. Before all this, I did feel it, and it put a fair ammount of pressure on my bladder but did not HURT.

Is there a cup y'all might reccomend for me? Or... is the cup just not for me at all? I'm not adverse to cloth pads, just thought a cup would be easier while out and about, ya know?

Thanks for any help, sorry fir typos, I'm typing on a tablet!

We are all different so what fits any of us might not necessarily fit you. Go to the Community FAQ. There are several posts that have size charts and links to side by side photos and "squishy-ness" ratings. Compare other cups to the Diva that you have and, using what you know about your Diva, figure out what other cup(s) might fit and suit you best.

perhaps that's the rim? i've heard the rim of the diva is stiffer than the body. plus it might be the wearing inside out thing. my new-style small meluna presses on my rectum inside out, but right side out it's fine. i think a good idea could be to try a softer cup that is short enough right side out. maybe something like a miacup? check out the pics and compare the rim shape.
afaik a diva is like 51-52 mm long inside out.

It could be, as the Diva does indeed have quite a stiff rim. I've lost hold of it while trying to fold it at times (as I'm really clumsy) and it's sprung back and popped me in the fingers.

this springing thing can also happen with really soft cups though.
