Please help me with this Gods-wretched Diva Cup
My first effort at having a more sustainable & responsible menstrual period was using a Diva Cup. This is the pictured cup above. I bought mine at Whole Foods for about 30 bucks.
I was a complete bozo at this effort. I succeeded in getting my Diva Cup in correctly 2 times out of several months of attempted use. I can't seem to get it to pop open in the manner that the manufacturers say is the way to create the seal. Is my powerful vadge just crushing it? Am I pushing it too far up? Help! I know that at least one reader uses a cup!
I also get an uncomfortable feeling of bladder fullness with the cup. I think that it just may not be for me. I truly believe in it as a sustainable option...less work than re-usable pads, and it may hold up longer.
