Has anyone else had issues with their diva cup while practicing yoga? I find that no matter how long it's been in, doing hip openers will cause leaking. Has anyone else experienced this, or is it just me?

When I was still menstruating, I used a Lunette during yoga sessions. It took me a couple of months to figure out the right pelvic angles so it didn't pop open (I suggest trying this at home, with dark yoga pants), but it was doable.

Agreed. I avoid certain very hip opening poses and stretches when I'm bleeding. (I use a DivaCup, if that matters). Next time I buy a new cup I will invest in a firmer one though because of this difficulty.

Reminds me of the old joke:
"Doctor, it hurts when I do this."
"So don't do that."

Come back to that maneuver after your period.

I do lots of pilates/HIIT workouts/stretches fine with my cups, you might want to try a stiffer cup or a softer cup?

I used my SckoonCup for my first yoga experience with a cup today and all went great, couldn't even feel it and NO leaking (plus I have a pretty darn heavy flow right now). All yoga positions seemed very comfortable. I had seen a few yoga regulars share that they loved the SckoonCup when doing yoga, Pilates, and even running trails!

Having a cup that worked with my yoga workouts was very important for me when choosing a cup. Many of the positions I want to do during my period are the most important during that time, especially hip openers!

I empty my cup immediately before class and again one hour in on the theory that an empty cup doesn't leak. No leaks yet and I've worn it through a lot of classes.
