Hey there!

So I just finished my first cycle using the DivaCup size 2. I'm 28 and one vaginal birth. Everything was great and worked wonderfully and I really do think I'll want to use this method in the future.

However.. Now the my cycle is finished and am not using the cup I found that when I went to stand up from the couch, I had a mild stabbing pain in my vagina... I'm hoping this is normal for a new user of the cup and maybe just the muscles shrinking and relaxing again? Anyone else ever have this? No discharge or itch or smell or anything with it, just pain when bending and standing up or pressure in that area.. Any advice?

Just to clarify
I saw a lot of posts about pain during cycle which could be caused by placement or soaps, but I didn't see anything posted about pain afterwards...

RE: Just to clarify
I have pain afterwards but it's from insertion and at the entrance and inner labia. Unfortunately the only fold that works well for me is the c fold so i think it's from that. Or my nails slightly nicking the soft tissue. But never inside.
What you're describing sometimes happens on the first day of my cycle. I get bad cramps during and cramps and inbetween though. I also use the diva 2.

Hey... not sure I'll be much help, but I'm a newbie; just bought my first cup and haven't actually used it yet, but just so you know, I get that same sensation all the time randomly throughout the month. Gyn said it was a vitamin (magnesium) deficiency.

Maybe you should go get checked out?? If you don't get satisfactory answers that is...
