So I have have had 2 kids (in my forties!). Average cervical height I think.

I am trying my Diva cup 2 for the first time as a "dry run". I noticed that I could feel the stem and so now trying it inside out. I can still "feel" the bottom of it. Am I just not putting it in far enough? I put it in right side out yesterday and after a walk it started coming out! Do I just have weak pelvic floor muscles? I could also start to pull it out without breaking the "seal". I will keep trying but also hoping I don't have to get a different model. Was hoping this was going to be the answer to all my tampon issues. Never felt right after kids. Heard so many good things about these cups!

It sounds like your Diva is too long for you. As you've discovered, flipping it inside out will probably make it fit better. But yeah, a weak pelvic floor is your biggest issue. There's a couple of paragraphs about Kegel exercises at the end of The Answers to Commonly Asked Questions at: http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/

A different cup might help a little but get through the dreaded learning curve with the Diva that you have. Long story short, I was just a few years older than you when I got my first cup. I started with a Diva that was too long for me too. And years later, flipped inside out, it turned out that Diva isn't such a bad cup after all.

In the mean time, work on those muscles. GRIP the heck out of your hunny when you're making whoopee.
