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?

I had similar issues at first. When it leaks straight away you have probably missed your cervix (if your cervix is low it could be sitting outside the cup - sweep your finger around the cup to check your cervix isn't there). My cervix is low and sits inside the cup meaning it takes up space and I can only fill a cup about 3/4 full. Personally I tried the large fleur and have only experienced leaks when I have waited too long to empty or during exercise. I also tried the luv ur body large but although I could accommodate it - the increased length meant that my cervix dangled further into the cup and the capacity was less than the fleur. Still trying to find a cup I can rely on for excercising or for swimming (mine always take in water).
