This is my first post here but I've read come here before and read posts about lots of different things! I'm wondering if anyone has experienced longer/heavier periods due to a cup? This is my third cycle using a small diva cup. I really love it! I've always had a wonky cycle (it would come for 2 months then leave for 5. I'm about 15 and a half, a virgin, and have had my period for 2 years as of July) Anyway I first tried a cup in April and loved it. I do not recall anything odd in this cycle.
When I got my period in May I tried it again and loved it but found that by about day 3 my flow got really heavy, there was a time where in about 70 mins I had overflowed the cup (and it was overflowed, not just leaking! Not fun, especially when I was at the lake and we're not supposed to flush every time.) Anyway, it lasted about 8 days and got better throughout but I had to wear pads for most of it.
In June I got my period halfway through the month and have now had it for 25 days. (luckily the cup makes it like it's not even happening, so awesome!) I don't have cramps or anything just flow. In about 8 hours it's just up to the first line (can't remember the measurement!)
I was talking to my cousin and she suggested maybe the cup was to blame. Has anyone ever heard of a cup causing periods to be a lot longer and/or heavier? I looked online and haven't found anything. I am going to the doctor in a few days but I was wondering if anyone on here knows anything. Thank you so much!!!
