  • Mood:


Okay, so I've been using the Diva for... 5? 6? days now. At first the problem was that it filled up way too fast. Luckily, I'm not bleeding so heavily now. I've noticed, though, that the past two days (yesterday and today), I've had a really hard time removing and inserting the cup. Bearing down seems to do very little to bring the cup lower, and I cut off a little of the stem because it was annoying me, which has just made things harder. It also just doesn't seem to want to go back in. Excuse the expression, but I feel almost like I'm raping myself, I have to shove and push so hard to get it in. It also doesn't really want to pop open now. What gives? Has my vagina changed that much in 5 days?!? Grr...

~Monkeyscience, frustrated

P.S. Just so I'm not all negative, it is nice that I can now leave it in for 8-12 hours and there's just a little puddle of blood in it. :)
