Please help a first-timer!


I'm super new to menstrual cups and have been browsing on here since buying my Divacup size 1 last week! I was super excited to use it and it has been surprisingly easy! I think! So I've had no trouble with insertion and I think it's where it should be as I've had no leaking.
However since using (it's only day two) I've had sickness & awful trapped wind like pain in my stomach - it feels like I have a sickness bug! But I'm unsure if it's a coincidence and I actually do have a bug or whether it could be my cup?!
I've removed it and it's made no difference - although it's only been a couple of hours!
I really hope it's not the cup but wanted to see if anyone else has had a similar experience.
And if it's my cup, do you think a different cup could help or am I destined to use pads/tampons forever? 😫

Any help will be greatly appreciated 😊
