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!

My size 2 one does the same to me. Seems to be worse on my first 2 days then after that is a minor annoyance. Sadly I've figured out the leaks and everything and it pops open every time. It'd be my dream cup (I was on here whinging about leaking not long ago, not sure how I fixed that but I did :P) except for the bladder pressure :( It doesn't seem to cause me any UTI's or anything though, just makes me run to the loo a whole lot.
