Hello community!

I'm a first time Diva Cup user and am having a hell of a time. I had it fine on day one, no leaks, it auctioned, couldn't feel it, no issues. Next day it seems to keep sliding down and all it has done is leak. Overnight was the worst leaking I have ever had and when I removed the Cup, it wasn't over full or anything.

I think I have a "dangly" cervix but I really don't know, I've never been one to get right up in there and explore. I've had two children (both c-sections) and have the size 2 cup. I've tried turning it inside out but it still leaks and it's really hard to get out.

Any advice would be appreciated, I really want this to work!!

Thanks so much :)

Enlarge the anti-suction holes.
Flip it inside out to shorten it.
Hang in there. You're in the dreaded learning curve. ;o)

Is it sticking out of you at all? The Diva is one of the longest cups there is and many have problems with it sitting too low. Some people do find their cervix drops after their first day too (mine has a tendency to get higher though)

Secondly, do a sweep with a finger to make sure that your cervix is above the cup and not sitting to the side of it. This can cause leakage. The sweep will also tell you if it's opening properly. I find as my period gets lighter it's harder to get it top open properly.

I have found the size 2 diva always leaks for me on my first day so I wear it with a light pad. By day 2 it is fine (I also own a size 1 and fare better with it despite having given birth twice).

Good luck!
