1. It makes my cramps worse. My cramps are usually pretty bearable without pains meds. The diva cup makes them really bad.
2. Moving when I stand. I typically insert it sitting. Well, I tried to empty it in the shower and couldn't find the end. I tested it a few times and realized then when I stand it practically goes sideways! But then returns to normal in the sitting position. What the heck??
3. Leakage or "fake" leakage. I think my cervix is higher later in my cycle, so the positioning is more difficult. Because I find that I leak around the third day. But, on the first two days I'll be going about my business and all of a sudden get a trickly feeling and run to bathroom, because it feels like a lot of blood has slipped through, only to wipe and find nothing there. So annoying!
Btw, I'm 20, no kids, virgin. Also, I still haven't gotten used to removal. I think I need a softer cup/narrower rim.
