Does anyone have a Mirena and uses a Diva Cup?
Do you have any leakage or other problems and is it comfortable?
Where can I get a Diva Cup cheap?

Yes I have a mirena and use a diva cup.
I have no leakage whatsoever.
It is that comfortable I forget somedays that I even have it in!
Don't know where you can get one "cheap". I bought mine from a link on EB a few years ago and it was only about $25. I think that's cheap.

I have a Mirena and have just bought a Diva Cup. However when it arrived I noticed a warning on the side of the box not to use it when you have an IUD fitted. Spewing I didn't do my research better before I spent my money. It cost me approx $35AUD including postage & took approx a week. I used Descentia's discount code for the iHerb site.
Looking on their website FAQ's - First Questions it explains as follows:-
Can The DivaCup be worn with an IUD?
The DivaCup is not suggested for use with an Intrauterine Device (IUD). It is possible for the IUD to become dislodged, displaced or removed when the menstrual cup is removed by inadvertently pulling on the IUD string. As with all gynecological concerns, please consult with your physician.
As my Mirena is due out by November anyway, and I definitely am finished with having babies, I'm putting the hard word on DH to take on the final responsibility for our contraceptive care. Once he's got that sorted, I'll be doing the Diva thing!!
Although I can't quite get my head around how a tampon would be 'less risky' than a Diva Cup when it comes to IUD's.
There's 100's of women who use both Diva Cup & Mirena with no problems, but there's also some who have had problems too. So it's a question of risk & what you're willing to accept.

I have a Multiload IUD and use a Diva cup. I have been doing so for a few years with no problems. I actually can't remember seeing the information about not using it whilst using an IUD
