Okay, I have a habit of tweaking things to my liking if I can't buy what I want or it's not financially feasible. I tried the diva cup, along with the temperamental leaking I apparently have a very long vagina and I could barely reach the stem when it worked its way up there. I bought the glad rags moon cup because it is the longest. It is LONG and very uncomfortable. I am afraid to cut it too short of course. So my idea: I know the benefit of these cups is no string hanging out of you but me, I like it. It's much more convenient that reaching up in you, fishing around for something slimy to grab, having my fingers cramp up on me. So what if I made a cup string? I am thinking fishing line since (I think) it can be cleaned and sanitized along with the cup. Or I work in the science field, I can probably bring home some suture material. Has anyone else tried this or am I the only crazy one?

Have you tried enlarging the dive cup holes so it's easier to reach and it doesn't find its way up so high? When I first started I used a organic cotton string but I only used it for a day.

Unfortunately, cups ride up as far as they can, so the largeness of the holes wouldn't make any difference.

Yeah they do but the diva cup's small holes cause it to "suction" further up than most cups. When I enlarged the holes, the cup was easier to remove and it didn't attach itself so heavily to my cervix. This seems to be a common issue with a lot of diva cup users on this forum as well.
