Are you sure it's inserted correctly?

 i have no idea. i folded it and put it in then twisted it.

I don't think you have it in right, or you got the wrong size or your flow is to heavy

I always have a pad as back up the first day or two until I get the hang of inserting it just right each cycle...

I've noticed that if I have the bottom (the part you grab hold of to pull it out) tilted forward, it seems to place better... Imagine that instead of placing it "up" towards the top of your body, place it "back" towards your lower back/spine... So it's in a more horizontal position

Did you meet the criteria for the size 2? Been pregnant or over the certain age?

If not you may need the smaller size

What is a Diva Cup? I was thinking girl version of Pimp Cup from Chapel Show right up until you started talking about having it in wrong......

I got a diva and had it work well for like 2 days of the 2nd cycle I tried it with (even slept in it with no leaks!) but the rest of the time it was still leaking. I finally got frustrated with the leaking and having to wear a pad and gave up. Tried it again this past cycle with no luck. Just found the instructions again and realized I might have been wearing it in up too high so maybe I'll give it a go again next cycle. But yeah, still buying tampons, which sucks.
