Diva Cup after childbirth - Do I really need the size 2?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have been a happy Diva cup user for many years and have the size 1.  I just read on their website that they recommend getting the size 2 when you are over 30 (seriously, why?) and/or have had a vaginal or cesarean birth.  I am all of the above, being nearly 32 and having had both a CS and a VBAC.  Do I really need to invest in the size 2, or will my size 1 do the trick?

 

Thanks!

I don't know but, in your place, I would probably try the size 1 with a pad as well and see what happened.

I didn't. Still use the smallest size after several births and all. Try the one you have first!

Definitely give your current cup a try! It might still fit okay.

 

The reason they suggest a different size after 30 is because women's bodies change as we age, and stuff sort of shifts around a little, especially after you've given birth. You might find that even if you don't need to switch to size 2 just yet, you might need it in a few years.

 

Hope that helps! :)
