Well, that cup didn't work out! Now what one should I try?


I purchased a Diva Cup model 1 about 4 months ago, mainly because it was in the store by my house. I thought it would be a good fit for me because I have medium/sometimes heavy flow, 26, no kids, and what I thought was a high cervix.

I checked my cervix and it was higher, could barely feel it. I checked right when my period started, and it was an abnormal period for me when I checked early last fall. After struggling with insertion of the Diva Cup during my first period with the cup, I was thrilled when it finally opened. However, it started to feel uncomfortable and like it was going to fall out. I checked and it wasn't full, not even close. I decided to check my cervix...well, hello there! It sits lower than I thought. My cervix isn't super low, but I can feel a little past the 3rd knuckle on my middle finger, and a little lower on my heaviest day.

I've tried a couple of more times with the Diva, but it's just uncomfortable, almost like a chafing feeling or an irritation. I know that not every cup is a perfect fit for everyone. Any suggestions of cups I should try? I am hoping the second one I purchase will work for me!
