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'm having the same issue, except mine worked fine and pretty much leak free for 4 cycles. Now it's leaked,only on the toilet but i was up at 3 this morning then 8. Seems it wants to leak every 4 to 5 hours even though it's not full and only had to deal with it twice a day on the other cycles. I'm not sure what's changed. I did file down the end to make it smoother and eliminate the irritation it had caused. I could cry.

Ugh. That's terrible. Facing issues after 4 months of it working cannot be fun. I have read that cervix height can change not only during your cycle, but also from month to month. Does your cervix seem lower than it did the previous 4 cycles?

I'm not sure what it was. Maybe cramps somehow moved it....although highly unlikely. My cervix is low at the start of my cycle and possibly lower this time round but the cup wasn't completely full either. I had filed it so it was nice and smooth and didn't cause the irritation because it does sit at the entrance. Hasn't happened since just one day and night where I was changing it about every 4 hours. I did start some new medication which causes frequency so it could have been that I was just in the toilet more than usual. Still......a nasty surprise and luckily only on the toilet. Could have been I was just off? The master I thought I was got shattered. Still....way better than any other method so I'm sticking with it.
