So I've had my menstrual cup in twice in a row after removal, and each time I've noticed discomfort. I'm pretty sure it's not just the cramping I'd normally get. It almost feels like I have to pee. It's a little painful, but mostly just uncomfortable, like when you haven't peed for a while but have to.

I didn't know I had a sensitive bladder, Idek if I do now, but I was originally worried that my muscles would crunch the cup. I am using a Divacup. Idk if I should go too much softer or not... And is TPE a reliable material? I mean, sanitarily, safe for your body...

I wonder if I keep having this discomfort, will it effect my bladder? But I still can't exactly tell if it's just cramps or the cup pushing on my bladder...

Maybe it's just because you're new to cups. Or maybe your cup doesn't fit as well as it could. The analogy I like to draw is shoes. Just because they are the right size doesn't mean they will become a favorite pair. There are many pairs of shoes on my closet floor that didn't quite break in or work out as well as I hoped.

Feeling like you need to pee the first few times you use a menstrual cup is normal. There is something foreign in your vagina, and your body is just kind of reacting to it by making you physically feel like you need to expel it (thats my take on it, but take that explanation with a grain of salt since I'm not a doctor). It just takes some getting used to. I felt like that the first 1-2 days of using the cup but then that sensation want away. My advice is to stop thinking about it. If the urge to pee is still too much maybe consider a smaller or softer cup.
