I bought a diva cup size 1 back in july. I'm over 30 but never had kids. It took me until my 3rd period with the cup to actually get it inserted. Believe me it was surprise. The thing is. I noticed that it was uncomfortable. There was pressure, and it caused my cramps to become worse. Usually I get cramps before my period, (well I should say every other month I get them before my period, and the other months I get back aches). The thing is I can't keep the diva cup in for more than 20 minutes due to the discomfort. I got this so that when I go on vacation in March (yes I planned that far ahead) That I won't need to worry to much about needing to bring pads or tampons, I"m not sure if its that I have a low or crooked cervix or what. I need some advice.

The Diva has notoriously small anti-suction holes. Enlarge them if you think that suction is the problem. It might not have opened all the way. Insert it halfway, make sure it has opened fully and then boost it into place. Or it might be that you just didn't get it positioned right. There are helpful hints at http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/ that might help.

One of the hints is to flip the Diva inside out to shorten it. Don't try that until you are proficient at removal -- and only if you think it's too long.

Thank you, I'll take a look at the link and hopefully this will fix it. I don't relish the idea of having to buy a different menstrual cup.

I'm just adding to this entry...

I looked at the link above, and managed to get the cup insert correctly.
