That said, I did have a friend whose Divacup "decoupled" while she was doing karate. It's because she had her original from before she was pregnant. There are two sizes -- one for ladies who've had babies or are under 30, and one for ladies who haven't or are over 30. Basically, her ladyparts had shifted and she needed a larger Divacup. Whoops.

the only thing that bothers me is the idea of using it in public restrooms.
I have had my mooncup for a couple of years, however I do get leakage. I don't know if its because I am a bit lazy putting it in or its just one of those things. Very annoying as I have lovely expensive underwear (one of my indulgences) and I've had to start wearing 'period knickers' again to avoid staining my best frillies!
I notice that most of you state you don't leak, I thought it was just inevitable, however if it's not I may have to reassess how I put mine in

So it would be fine with a IUD.Please note: The DivaCup sits below the cervix and not up against it, so it is important to aim it toward the tailbone not “up”. It is not inserted in the same way as a tampon.
badbunny it is prob not creating that seal around your cervix. You should be able to pull on it very gently once its inserted and it won't move. I think there are youtube vids on how to insert it.
I discovered diva cups about 3 years ago and I have never been happier around period time. They are great! Now if I can get my 14-year-old daughter to get over her squeamishness, I'd buy her one too.
Would a Divacup work for someone who has NEVER been able to wear tampons?? I've tried a couple times in my life but it was so...idk...disturbing that I've literally never been able to get one up there. I mean I can have sex and I have an IUD, it's not like nothing's ever been up there (lol) but something about tampons just disturbs me so idk if could put this up there either. Any thoughts?
