Hi there. I have recently gotten my period back after 2.5 years of not having one.. I decided to try a divacup and its not going so well. Today was my second day using it and my vagina is so sore. Im having leaking issues, taking it out is such a pain and causing soreness... i am about to just give up on it. I also have had an issue with it slipping down to thr point of almost falling out..

Any advice would be appreciated. Ive watched several videos and read several articles on how to use it but for some reason its not working for me...

It took be a long time to get used to mine. Every cycle I was able to use it more and more. The first time I could barely ge through a day and I was in pain, now I can wear it for 4-5 days 24 hours straight!

Also I was having an incredibly hard time removing it, I found it was too short so I bought a ‘luv your body’ cup which is a super long one and it works amazing!! Once I switched and it became easier to remove I was able to wear it longer. I still get leaking issues but it seems as though it only happens when it gets full or close to.

if it's too long, flip it inside out.
also which size do you have? was the break due to pregnancy/breastfeeding?
the diva is about the furthest from one size fits all :/ see the faq http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/tag/faq

Enlarge the anti-suction holes around the rim.
If slippage is due to length, get better at removal, then flip it inside out to shorten it.
If slippage is due to a weak pelvic floor, strengthen it by kegeling.

Seems like it's too long for you. The Diva is one of the longest cups and it is V shaped, which doesn't usually fit someone with a low cervix. Have you checked your cervical height throughout your cycle? It is usually lowest the first day of your cycle.

If you need a lot of capacity, the Super Jennie may be a good fit. Most cups have 2 sizes, Super Jennie is sorta like size 1.5 and 2.5 so the smaller may work if you were using the large Diva.
