Can’t pee while cup is inserted
I have been using a menstrual cup (the diva cup to be exact) for about 10 yrs with no problems. Only recently have I been having issues with being unable to pee while the cup is inserted. It’s like it’s constricting my urinary tract. I have to “push” the pee out but it barely comes out and I end up having to remove the cup to pee. I’ve never had this problem before. Are there any reasons why this may happen and what solutions to try?
Please let me know.

I’m a cup firstimer and I pee myself when inserting it….I can’t control it…otherwise then is perfect, no pain no nothing, is it normal?

I don’t know if it’s “normal” but I also don’t think it’s uncommon. Everyone has varying sensitivity when it comes to their urethra. Yours may just want to activate when there’s pressure applied to it in a certain place.
Use the toilet and lean over to push out any excess urine from the urethra before inserting the cup.
Good Luck! <3
