Hello! I'm close to finishing my first cycle with a Diva Cup. So far there is a lot to love. I'm doing okay with inserting and removing and have had very little leaking. My one and only issue is that I can not pee with it in! Is it something I am doing wrong or is it the harder rim on the cup? I'm inserting it as horizontally as possible and have even tried turning it inside out. Nothing has worked. I did buy the larger size as I'm 35 and have had one child vaginally. I do have a fairly heavy flow the first couple days and then it's light for the next 3-4 days. Taking it out every time to pee isn't horrible the first couple days since I have a heavier flow but doing that every time is leaving me a bit raw...and defeats the purpose of being able to leave it in for 10 hours. Any help or advice would be so appreciated!

Yeah, it's the rim and the firmness. You will probably feel better with a less rimmy cup (which is most of them). If you think a totally different, blunter shape might be better, try the Fleur, Si-Bell, or Lena. (Sckoons might be too short for you if the Diva fit well otherwise)

Some of us have success with leaning backward or forward while seated on the toilet. Doesn't cost anything to try!
