Hey everyone! I'm new to this group and L.G. and I'm so glad I found it >v< I need you guys help. So I've been using the Diva Cup for about two years now and haven't really had too many issues. Sometimes it leaks -_- I guess I put it in weird or something. But my main issue is whenever I lay down like to go to bed, or just relax (or worse case scenario, while doing PILATES) It leaks and I dont know why! When I reinsert I always check to see if the suction is working and it always seems to be, so I dont know why this is happening :'( Its so frustrating. Please help me!!!

Maybe its a tad long for you, if at other times it works fine then maybe certain movements shorten the vaginal canal or make your cervix dip in and take up more room than normal. Either way, a shorter bodied cup with with and an easy stem to grab should be better, i second the lunette but also maybe look into the fleur cup or LUB small if you have heavy flow but still want 43mm width

That makes sense! But I'm just worried because I don't know if that will help me when I lay down for bed :/ I'm really considering the lunette though. I've also heard of Victoria's love, it has a valve type thing looks interesting

I have the victorias love cup in small and i personally wouldnt recommend it. I have a high cervix but the stem is extremely long, it was poking out a lot, which is ok apart from the valve having holes on both sides which scratch my labia to death! If you manage to get the whole thing in i dont see how you can position the body as my whole finger is the length of the stem, and the body is so short it has no capacity so yes it has a valve but you go to empty it alot and when u empty it you wiggle it down a bit to get a proper grip on the slippery valve and when you put it back you have to position it again because the stem is bendy and wont help with positioning. As you can tell my experience has not been good. Maybe if the cervix is low for most of the stem to be past the labia... For spotting days? Ive seen a better version of it that has a higher capacity body, shaped abit more rounded with a shorter tale that has only one hole in the end- the basewater rose? I think that looked abit more interesting as it would scratch the labia less, release suction at will and decent capacity. Whatever you decide i hope it works out for youyou :)

Hmm hopefully they'll shorten the stem! I read on a forum the makers of Victoria's love were going to. I'm gonna check out the basewater Rose too, thanks!
