Hello ladies, are you ready for tmi? :
So...I had af about 6 months ago and ordered the diva. I used it on the last day and truly never got the hang of it. I had trouble inserting it, I could feel it the entire time, and I thought, well, I will give it another try on the next. I just got another, and have been trying the diva for 4 days, and I hate it! I can always feel it, I have to change it every 3 hours (yep, its full!) and I have the hardest time gettting it inserted. Am I just crazy or am I the only one to actually admit that it sucks? What am I doing wrong? I can hardly hold on to the thing in the position that they recommend for insertion, and then when I get it in, I can't grip it to turn it. I get blood all over my hand and have yet to not have blood get around it, although its never very much. And then, even when it is in, I can usually feel it, like its not in far enough??? I finally took it out tonight and put on a lunapad and am in heaven. I feel free. I really don't want to give this up, but I am starting to doubt it. Please, help!!!! I'm getting : from bending over trying to find the right insertion position!
It sounds to me like all your problems are stemming from insertion issues which is a VERY common problem. There are several other folding methods for insertion, and once you get it inserted correctly and fully opened/sealed I'm willing to bet you're problems would disappear.
