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!

Sorry for the late reply! Thank you all so much for the helpful feedback!!

That stiffness chart is really helpful - Although I find it's missing a few cups (like Natural Mamma). I never would've thought of cup stiffness if it weren't for you guys, so thanks!

It looks like I'll be doing further research - so far I'm liking the cuplee since it's a similar size to the diva, but decidedly softer! The Cuplee website doesn't seem to take credit card though - anyone know of a good alternative source?

Thanks bunches! Glad to know I'm not alone in this whole pressure thing C:
