"Soo this is only my 2nd day with my brand new Diva Cup.
Um... I always bleed PAST my tampon, like there will be some on the tampon but it will always be on the string as well.
Now... I just assumed that if I used the Diva Cup maybe it'll help. Like I said this is only my 2nd day... And I've checked, the cup is open (felt all around, even rotated it) and there is still leakage. I wore a pad with it when I slept and there was still blood on the pad and the cup was barely full... SO I'm a little confused... Help?
I'm 20 years old, never had a kid so I have the Type 1 cup
Update: Cup was not even full
Update 2: Oh, and not a virgin "
I reallly realllly need help understanding haha
This was the first answer I've gotten so far:
"You've only been using the cup for two days, also bare in mind that Divacup is a long cup and given your issues with tampons you may have a shorter vaginal canal so it may not be the best brand for you. It sounds like your cup isn't directly under the cervix: check it's in position and make sure there's a seal, if you still struggle then try groups on Facebook or the menstrual cup community on Livejournal for more help."
And so I joined. Okay, I know where my cervix is located. And considering I'm on period, erm, it feels swollen and I guess open?? It feels like a triangle. I thought I knew what I was doing with the cup but apparently I don't, if it's supposd to sit directly underneath my cervix... And what seal? lol I have no idea what that means! I feel so out of touch with my personal area.. So yes, I need help!
