When you all have your cups in, where in your vagina do they sit, like how close to the entrance? I ask cause mine is a Diva 1 and it sits one on two ways depending on where my cervix is on a particular day, 1. it sits with the stem poking out of my vagina wedged between my vaginal wall and urethral meatus area or 2. with the BASE wedged in that same area. I was just wondering how common that is or if my diva is just too long for me(which I suspect because of that and that it always/almost always leaks).

Any cup I use sits with the base at the entrance of my vagina, no matter what I do. I also cannot urinate without taking out my cup.

ANY cup will eventually settle (O) around the cervix and its base will be relative to the length of the cup and the length of your vagina.

If you're comfortable with removal, try flipping your Diva inside out to shorten it. It's perfectly OK to wear it that way if it works for you.

Compare the dimensions of your Diva to the 30+ other brands of cups at the size charts found at the Community FAQ. If you think you'd like a different one, consider the capacity and shape as well as the length and width of the contenders.

when I have my cup in, she sits near from the entrance, she stands lone on the site, but the stem don´t poke out of my vagina.
diva 1 is the small size? I think is your correct size..

My small MCUK poked out if I opened my legs, but I think it was just short enough because it never caused any discomfort with the stem cut off. My small LC is shorter so it's contained a bit better, but the feeling and function is pretty much the same with both cups.

The bottom of my cup sits right at the entrance to my vagina. I had to cut the stems of every cup I've tried completely off or they stuck out. My first cup was a Diva Cup and although it worked OK, it always felt slightly too long. I switched to a Mooncup UK, and the length was just right, but the ridges at the bottom rubbed and were slightly uncomfortable (still an improvement on the Diva). So I switched to a Mooncup US which was basically the same length as the UK, but smooth with no ridges and haven't looked back. All three cups sat in the same place, right inside. And for me it stays there, no migrating up farther, and easy to pinch the base even with no stem.

I am on day 3 with my size 2 Yuuki, and sitting down the stem pokes out about 1cm. This seems to be the case with all three of my cups though and doesn't seem relative to length. It doesn't bother me as it is. I think trimming the stem would though.

Sounds like you Diva is too long for you, relatively to the size of your vagina, I second flipping it inside out, and trimming the stem, since it doesn't sound like you'd need it for removal.
