I am using a diva cup for the first time this cycle. I am 28 years old and have 3 kids. This is my first postpartum period after my 2nd and 3rd babies (I got pregnant my first cycle after baby 2, so I never had a period). My problem is this: the DivaCup keeps sliding out. I cut the stem, but I could still feel it, so I flipped it inside out and it's a lot better. It doesn't leak, it just slides down so I can feel it there all the time.
I have successfully gotten it to stay "up" 2 times. The first time was after I sat for awhile, and the second time was overnight (before I went to bed, it was sliding down, but when I got up it didn't). All the other times, it just slides down and I can feel it. I've come to the conclusion that the cup might be too long? So, do I stick it out for a few more cycles and keep flipping it inside out? Or, do I buy a shorter cup? Which cup would you recommend?
When I was pregnant, the midwives would always comment about how far back my cervix was, so I'm somewhat surprised.
