No more cramps: Why?

Hi Everyone! I've been using the Diva Cup for about 3 months now with great results. I love it and I feel like I have joined a special sisterhood (or cult? LOL). Anyway, I've noticed that the last two months I did not get any cramps. Like none. This is almost unheard of in my world. I am used to at least one day, usually my heaviest, being a very crampy day.

I'm not complaining or anything, but I am really curious as to why this happens. What is the mechanism that causes that? I can't find any articles about it, other than the anecdotal evidence that cramps are reduced or eliminated when using menstrual cups. I am guessing that it has to do with the suction, but I don't really know. Thoughts?
