I’m completely new to this community (though I have been lurking for a while) and I have a question about whether my cervical exam has made it so that I have to readjust to the cup.
I am a 19 year old virgin and I have been using a Diva Cup model one for a little over a year. During the initial months of use I experienced excruciating cramps, moderate nausea, and severe leaks. After about 4 months of use I had very tolerable cramps if any at all, moderate leaks, and no nausea.
Last week I had my first ever gynecologist visit. My doctor did a pap test and I felt fine at the time. However when I got my period earlier this week the debilitating cramps and extreme leaks were back.
So my hypothesis is that my cervix became somehow disturbed and I have to readjust to the menstrual cup but I wanted to ask if anyone here has had a similar experience so as to verify this.
Maybe I’m wrong entirely and the cramps had nothing to do with the cervical exam but I’m just wondering. Thanks to all those who reply!
