My name is Jamie, and I'm new to the community. I'm hoping someone can hep me out. Sorry if this is a really common question, I checked skimmed through the memories a nd the first couple of pages, but i didn't read closely because my kids are both up. Anyhow, here's my question: I just recently got a Diva Cup, which I chose over the Keeper only because of my mild latex allergy. I was pretty sure I got it in right, because it felt like it was around my cervix and there was a seal, and it never leaked. But all of the stuff I've read says that id it's in correctly, I shouldn't be able to feel it at all. Is that true? Because I can definitely feel it, and it doesn't feel that great. When I'm sitting it's mostly ok, but when I stand up, it comes down a little and the ribbed stem keeps rubbing the inside of....well, my vagina, I guess, but way low down, so it's more like the inside if my labia. And it's sort of chafing me. So does that mean that I don't have it in right? Or is it just me? Should I trim the stem (it already looks pretty short)? Also, I heard that just because you're allergic to latex, doesn't necessarily mean you can't use the Keeper, because it's not strictly latex, like, say, condoms or gloves. Is this true? Because the Keeper looks like it's maybe more comfortable.
Please excuse any typos,I was NAK. And also please excuse the fact that I actually asked several questions.
