More irritation at broken things

My Diva Cup is leaking. It worked great for several cycles once I figured out how to put it in without expending major points. It makes me wonder if I somehow broke it as well.

I jerked and thwacked my finger hard on the side of my desk and it bled too.

I've been trying my best to protect my health and my husband's and my kids'. And I guess if I have to choose between breaking a bunch of stuff/a cut and good health. I'll choose the former. We're all in good health right now. Thwack on wood. But it would be nice if I could have health and not break things.

Ugh, that sucks. Ask me about my wonderful group of friends and our fabulous initiation ritual that has to do with The Keeper.

Sorry to hear about your finger. :(

*HUG*

I've had that happen now and then -- sometimes it seems as though I just can't get it positioned correctly for a day or three, then next month it's fine again. Other times it functions properly, but is all kinds of uncomfortable for a couple of days.

No clue why it happens, or what I do that either causes or fixes it, but there you go. Hopefully yours is only temporarily broken as well.

Yeah the position seemed to be the problem. I even went so far as to join the community menstrual_cups. Best tip I got was to position towards the small of my back. Much better today.

I think mine isn't seated properly, either. Bleah. May tomorrow be a better day for cups.

I'm not sure how a cup could be broken. It might not have opened all the way though. (Shrug) All I know is the mooncup has enough suction for ten cups. Lol.

It was positioning for me. And the little holes being blocked, so a sort of temporary brokeness.
