Hi everyone! I really hope someone can help me with this. I bought a DivaCup a year ago, and used it for several months with success. Then, for some reason all of a sudden, beginning about 6 months ago, I started having problems with it. My main problem is that it will not open all the way inside me. When I feel around it inside me, it is in an oval shape, which causes it to leak. I have tried everything! I've tried all the different folds, inserting it at different angles, and nothing works. This morning I experimented with it again for about 30 minutes with no luck. I'm getting really frustrated.
I'm also confused with the talk about the cervix. On this forum, people have mentioned having low cervixes, or the cup being up against the cervix. It was my understanding from the DivaCup diagram:
and the statement in my booklet "The DivaCup is worn low at the base of the vagina and away from the cervix."
So, which is it? In the diagram, the cervix seems pretty far away from where the cup is supposed to be.
