So I've been using a menstural cup for about 5 months or so and I think it is awesome. I'be read that some peoples' cramps have actually gotten better but my cramps have not changed and actually feels worse sometimes. I'm just wondering if I'm putting the cup in wrong (I don't experience any leaks) or I'm not the only one that hasn't experienced lighter cramps. I've always had a history of having really bad cramps whether wearing pads or tampons. I've been to a gyno and he suggested I get on birth control, which I really don't want to do, does anyone have any natural remedies for dealing with cramps?

Lighter cramps is something interesting that a bunch of people have reported, but I'm pretty sure it's experienced by a minority of cup users. A cup can cause cramps if it rubs against your cervix (rather than encircling it), and if that's the case you need to get it to settle in a slightly different place - using a different fold can help.

I'm not really troubled by cramps so I don't have any suggestions for remedies, but I'm sure there are lots and lots of suggestions around online.
