Peeing with Diva Cup & Positioning


I'm a happy diva cup user... but lately, I've been noticing that I'm having issues peeing with it in. My pee comes out much slower and I fell like I have to really force it out. In order to get it all out, I've had to take my cup out. This was particularly annoying when I went out last night, and had to pee multiple times (darn alcohol!) and had to keep taking it out in a gross public bathroom! I read up on some of the posts about this, and tried to stick it higher up like suggested, but got a MAJOR leak (first leak EVER) when I did!

Any suggestions? I don't want to have to resort to tampons when going out to avoid this problem. I would rather find a way to work with the cup.

Thanks ladies!
