I bought my first diva cup size 2 a few days ago. I know I'm still learning but i'm getting fed up as it just keeps leaking no matter what I do. I tried flipping inside out: leaks worse. I tried repositioning, right side, then the left, pushing it back pulling it forward. I don't know what else to do. I read most of the posts in the threads so not sure what to do next.

My cervix seems to be low. I can touch it no problem and even drag my finger around the whole base of it. i'm 37 and never had kids. the leaks don't seem to be residual as it's bright red. I do collect quite a bit into the cup but it's never full, most was only half way.

Sometimes it seems to start leaking right away other times i'll feel a queef type feeling and then leakage maybe 30 mins 45 mins after insertion. sometimes more blood then other times. my pelvic muscles are pretty strong. I can do keegles without any problems and have been for a long time.

Anything else I can try? are there certain brands better then others for low cervix?

Leaking right away usually means you didn't get it in the right place. Try letting it open low down and then boosting it up with your. muscles. The queef feeling for me is a sure sign leakage is coming. I think it's my cervix dangling into my cup and causing overflow. That's harder to deal with and may need a differently shaped cup. But it's pretty early to be shopping around. A lot of this is muscle memory. Your fingers and vagina learn what to do. Keep at it and you'll figure it out!
