Has anyone else ever had their cup stop sealing, seemingly from out of nowhere? I had a tampon in this evening because that was what I had with me when my period started earlier. When I went to switch to my DivaCup (size 1) before bed, I could not get it to seal. I'd insert, give it a gentle tug to check the seal, and it would start sliding out.

I've never had this problem before and I use my cup every month. Any ideas what could have caused the change?

Potentially useful information: I have quite strong pelvic floor muscles thanks to yoga, and I've never given birth. I haven't been sexually active with a partner for months. I've also been using a cup almost exclusively for 4-5 years now, so I'm pretty confident in terms of how to get it to sit well in my body.

Thank you so much for your thoughts and help!

My theory: Every once in a while we all have a period during which our cups just refuse to cooperate. I think it's your turn. I know, YAY, right? :o/

Or maybe you're having an extra-low cervix day? Flip the Diva inside out to shorten it if you think you are. See if it fits you better that way. Then go back to normal in a day or two.

Hmmm, I wonder if you're just more slippery than usual because of using the tampon first? Like the blood the tampon didn't absorb is lubing your vaginal walls and the cup is slipping and sliding right out?
