So last month (last cycle) was the first time I used Yukki cups. Was not uncomfortable. After my cycle ended I had very heavy discharge with some significant spotting in there. I wondered if it was a result of the cup but chalked it up to normal discharge/spotting. While washing my Yukki cup this morning preparing it for my cycle that might come possibly today I realized there is a decent edge or seam on the rim of the cup that lines your vagina. Ouch!
1. Do you think that is what caused my spotting?
2. What's the best way to get rid of that sharp seam?

I have no idea what caused your spotting, but...

You can file off the ridge/sharp part/seam edge with a very fine sand paper or even a nail file. If it is really big you can start by clipping it off with nail clippers or using one of those v-shaped cuticle cutter things.

Did the discharge/spotting come a few days after your period ended or did your period transition to the discharge/spotting?

I read that switching from disposables to cups can cause excessive discharge, because your body is used to tampons sucking up all the moisture so it overcompensates. This also happened to me. I think another thing is you're more aware of when your period ends with cups, while with tampons you may think you're still menstruating because the tampon isn't "dry", but in reality it's just sucking up all that post-period discharge and not much blood at all.
