This is my third cycle with diva cups. I seem to not be leaking but have residule blood from changing my cup. I don't know how to stop this. Should I cut my stem so the cup sits lower. Do I have to "wipe" inside after reinsertion of the cup to stop the residule blood. Help.

There is some information in the FAQ about "slobber" and how to deal with it--does that sound like the problem you are having?

I have a shower thingy that comes off and use that to wash the inside out, with the tap pressure turned down, and not overly hot water. I find that works well for me. I then put the clean cup in before I get out of the shower and its all nice and clean. I have found that the 'tickling' can cause a flood later though, which isn't a bad thing sometimes. Of course, not everyone has a shower head like I have.
