I noticed probably 2 out of the 10 months I've been using my DivaCup it tends to leak a little.  Not a major issue, I just have to remember to use pantiliners.  I don't normally have a problem with leaks.  During the 2 cycles I experienced leaks I put the cup in normally as I always do but it just doesn't seal right or something.  Like I said this happened 2 out of the 10 months I have been using it.  Could it be my vagina muscles overadjusting or something?  They should be used to this thing by now.

Also I told a friend of mine about menstrual cups.  She says she has REALLY heavy days and would have to change the cup every hour or so.  She also wears an IUD.  Any heavy-day ladies care to share?  She is intrigued by them and is open to new ideas other than using her pads and tampons.

Thanks all!

Did you stretch out the air holes when cleaning them?
I had no problems with leaking or the air holes being obstructed for months until I stretched them out a little while cleaning them. Now it's leaking slow and constant and every time I take it out I've noticed every hole is blocked. And it has nothing to do with capacity. I have extremely light periods and it started leaking from the very beginning.
