Hi all!

I have a small size 1 Divacup, and I've been noticing it's putting some mild pressure on my bladder when it's in. I usually just ignore it, but it'll bug me at least once a cycle. It feels like I have to go to the bathroom all the time, and even after I urinate it feels like my bladder isn't completely empty. Some days are better than others, but I always feel these symptoms while it's in, if only extremely mildly(Usually I hardly notice at all).

So the questions I have are these:
Are there any health risks to continue to use it while it puts this light pressure on my bladder?
Is there another cup out there that would work better for me? (The Divacup seems perfect in size/length though)
Should I somehow be putting my cup in different? (Higher/lower? Angled different?)

The pressure isn't uncomfortable enough to make me stop using the cup and go back to *shudder* previous methods, but it's like a little itch that I just can't scratch! Or something like that :P

Any insight would be helpful!

I also had a bit of bladder pressure with a size 1 Diva cup. It was my only complaint, really, and just a minor annoyance (and yeah, I felt like I needed to pee most of the time and found myself going to the bathroom way more often than I actually needed to). I never found any different way to put it in or anything, because once it was inserted it just moved to where it wanted to sit. I ended up buying a Natural Mamma cup last year, and I feel much less in the way of bladder pressure with the Natural Mamma.

I do find the Natural Mamma a bit more difficult to clean though. :/
