Hi everyone!

So last month I bought the Diva Cup 2. I'm 31 and had one child 13 years ago.

The problem I am having is that when I put the cup inside me I seem to lose it within an hour and can't find it. I finally found it after squatting so low down my butt was almost touching the floor. It was filled, so that's good, but the whole almost fisting myself to get the cup back wasn't good. Also there was no leaking.

Any suggestions would be awesome.

The good news is that you chose a long cup because apparently you have a long vag. Imagine if you'd chosen a short one! =8oO Bear down, cough, relax, keep your jaw slack and go for it! There are few cups that have longer bodies and/or overall longer combined cup+stem lengths.

If you want to compare, there are size charts at the Community FAQ and another set at http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ But you'll see that you don't have too many other choices so you might as well make the best of the cup that you've got.

I guess I don't understand how I am losing this cup behind my pelvic bone but a tampon stays in place.... I just tried again to leave it in and now I am leaking and it went even further inside me.

That's because you believe the illustrations in the instructions. Don't. They show a teeny cup at the entrance of your vagina with a cup length or more between the rim and your cervix. And that is just plain WRONG.

Skim/Read http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/ You're doing everything right -- and so is your cup. You just need to learn to trust it. :o)

If you like the Diva's design overall, you might go on AliExpress and check out the Chinese iCare. The cup design is like the Diva but it has a much longer, Lunette-like tab stem--length is like 83mm with stem. I have one for high cervix days and it's by far the easiest to remove of any of my cups. It's a good bit softer than the Diva, so I hear (I've never had a Diva though), but I need my cups really soft so I like that about the cup. It looks to be well made, comes in a lot of colors, and was $5 shipped (though it took a month because it was coming from China). I also love my large Si-Bell for heavier days but it's only about 74mm with stem, and has a much thinner stem, so if you're really going to need to pull I would be more likely to trust the iCare.

My Lily cup B is a bit longer than the Diva cup. If you're finding it that hard to find it may not make that much of a difference, but just wanted to put that option out there. :)
