Used my diva for the first time w/ period today. Saw some spotting after I first put it in, took it out after 1/2 hour, and there was blood on the outside of the cup. Put it back in and it was ok for about eight hours, other than cramps (which was weird cause I usually don't get them) After eight hours there was more spotting. I had some trouble getting it out, I couldn't get my finger high enough to break the seal. I pushed, but I'm not sure if it broke or not, because the cup wasn't any easier to remove.
-Why the spotting? I'm not sure if my cervix was in the cup, as you all talk about, but I'm fairly sure the cup was open and in correctly.
-Is it possible the cup is causing the cramps? Is there any way to avoid this?
-Any other suggestions on how to break the seal? And on how to not spill the contents of the cup? And on removal in general?
