Hi, I just got a diva cup and it's my first time getting a menstrual cup. It's a size 2 cup and bought it from someone in my city who was selling them online in bulk, but I feel like I'm more of a size 1 (I'm a virgin). I was wondering whether I might fit the size 2, or whether I should just hang onto it and see if I can trade for a different one since I haven't used it yet. I guess I'd just like to find out whether the size 2 is a big difference from the size 1. Should I just try it anyways?

The Diva is a bad starter cup anyway--the suction release holes are too small so it tends to get stuck, and it's one of the firmer ones, with an extra long body that's often too long if your cervix is average or low. However, whether you get a size 1 or 2 in any cup depends on the heaviness of your flow more than anything else. I am young and childless but wear size 2 cups because I'm too busy to change them often and can only empty them in the shower (high cervix so I need to do the full on sumo squat and that would be awkward in a public bathroom stall...)
