Hello! I am an 18 year old, non-virgin. I have never had a baby. I’ve been trying to get my Diva cup size 1 to work for me for months but every single cycle I experience leaks (the cup is never full). After insertion I always run my finger along the top to make sure it has opened fully. I’ve tried wearing it high, low, and in the middle. I’ve tried different folds. Pretty much every suggestion I could find on the Internet I’ve tried. Do I just need a cup with a bigger diameter?
(Kelci here) It definitely isn’t just residual blood. This is enough leakage to effectively bleed through my underwear and ruin my pants. I have previously measured my cervix and it’s medium. I don’t feel it’s a capacity issue though because even on super light days when there is barely anything at all in the very bitty bottom of the cup I leak. The Diva cup size 1 is comfortable.
