Thanks for the replies! I think I may be one of those people that has to wear it abit higher up. When I try leaving it down low it just feels like it's going to fall out and there's an uncomfortable pressure. Then it never stays at the lowest point it feels comfortable. By the time I go to take it out it's always migrated up so far that I have to seriously reach for it.
It's reassuring that others have experienced this odd urge to pee. Glad to know it's not just me maybe coming down with a UTI. I hate those soo much and I was really prone to them a while back so now whenever I feel a hint of one coming on I start tossing back the cranberry supplements like there's no tomorrow.
Right now I'm in the love/hate stage with this Diva cup. Once it's in, it's great. Only the teeniest bit of leaking on my heaviest day and I almost forget I'm on my period. It's just the getting the durn thing in there that is driving me batty. It takes a minimum of 10 minutes every time..and before bed is really annoying because the water in our bathroom always wakes up the baby..so it turns into this drawn out process of me going in to get her back to sleep and then having to get back up and try again once she's drifted off.. It took 2 rounds of that last nite.
I am determined to perservere though because I just hate pads and tampons soo much.
The other thing is.. even when it's in to the point where it feels comfortable, I still can't really spin it. I mean, it twists alittle
bit..like maybe 45 degrees but it's anything but freely spinning..it's very difficult to turn it. And while I can tell it's popped open, it's not exactly holding it's perfectly round shape when it's in.. Maybe because the shape of my yoni isn't perfectly round? The cup feels like it's slightly bent in on one side..but there's definetly a seal. So I'm never sure if it's in as well as it could be but I'm usually too frustrated to keep trying and it seems to work that way so I just leave it.
