Pee in cup
Last month, on the last day of my cycle, I purchased the diva cup. The first time I tried it, it worked great. I did not pee during those hours. It worked great, no leak, I could actually see the blood inside the cup and it was comfortable.
I used it after just to get the practice of putting it in. When I peed I had a problem. I went to pee and the cup felt extremely full and heavy. I tried to pee and only a trickle came out. I removed the cup and the pee gushed out. The cup was full of pee that has been sitting in it. Not only that, it smelled bad since the pee had been sitting in it for a while.
Yesterday I saw a spot of blood twice when wiping so I decided let me try the cup again because I’m excited about having it.
I put it in. Feels comfortable. Go pee. Pee regularly comes out but at the very end of the steam, cup begins to feel heavy. I remove, again pee inside. I rinse and put back.
What an I doing wrong? Is it the position? I have a low cervix, is that the problem? I know it’s inserted all the way, only the stem is near my entrance.
Thank you! I just got one to try out and am also not on my period right now. I put it in and immediately felt the urge to pee. So I sat down on the toilet and nothing came out. I felt the cup sliding down from inside and so I pulled it out and my pee splashed all over my hand and then I finished peeing with yhe cup out and heard the stream. Having only had yhe cup in for less than a minute, it was absolutely urine that filled the cup up. I was totally confused since I know there are 3 holes, so I consulted the seemingly all-knowing Google and this is the ONLY post I’ve found that doesn’t say I’m 100% incorrect. I’ll try it again while not on my period and maybe push further up (but then will have a harder time getting it out). If that doesn’t work, I guess it isn’t for me (especially since there isn’t any support in things to try since it “physically can’t happen”).
