Hi Folks,

I hope I can get some advice. I have bought the Diva Cup- didn't do much on the way of cervix vs. cup stuff- until it's my period and the Diva Cup is horrid to my lady parts.

So I googled trouble shooting tips for the Diva and found this amazing community and now I need advice because after going through post after post I have about confused the crap out of myself.

So here are the deets:

I'm 27, 1 vaginal birth, have a very low sitting cervix. Flow is heavy first day and light the rest of the days. I love the cup- I have no issue with width or removal or insertation.


The diva cup is waaayy to long- I've cut off the stem and was still way too long. Flipped it inside out- and it was better except it won't stay put at this point and is annoying the hell outta me. I am clenching my pelvic muscles all day long and the minute I relax while it's inside out it's like a slip and slide in there. (Yes the cup is fully open).

So do you have any suggestions on which cup would be a better fit for me? I've seen Meluna and all sorts batted around and am weighing in for advice before trying to locate a purchasing site.

I appreciate it.

I was happy with the Diva for a full year before I started experiencing the same "sliding out" issue you reported. I switched to the large Fleurcup and the problem has been solved. Don't be alarmed by the look of the Fleur's stem - it's very flexible and of course can be trimmed if necessary. The more rounded cup of the Fleur is what I think helps it stay where it's supposed to sit.

The Fleur stem is more flexible than the diva? The stem was always poking and was very uncomfortable for me on the diva- that's why it had to go. Have you had any issues with the Fluer since you switched?

I think it's (the stem) far more flexible than the Diva's. The Diva's is like a little tube, right? The Fleur's is more like a flat solid rectangle sort of thing, and it bends very easily. I haven't needed to trim mine at all, as it just lies quietly along one side of me and bends when I bend, etc.
