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?

I agree with PP to try a cup with a wider diamater. You could try the size two Diva or completely switch brands and try a different shape, too. Other than that, cramps are your uterus expelling the endometrium so you can google ways to tone your uterus. Maca helped me but you can overdo that herb so it should be used with caution.
