Mirena with Divacup?

Hi Divas,
I've had my Mirena since April of this year. I'm absolutely in love with it - and my ten-minute periods. However, this month I've been on my period since the 9th, which is significantly longer than 10 minutes. I think the extended period is due to my body still readjusting to the Mirena and I'm willing to wait it out - and if nothing else, I have my annual next week and I can just ask about it then.
The real reason I'm here is because I am sick to death of using tampons. Since I've had my Mirena for over 4 months, would it be intelligent for me to take a chance and use my Diva cup? I can deal with tampons, but my cup is so much more comfortable - aside from that whole risk of expelling my IUD thing.
Thanks for your input. Sorry if this was rambly; I'm low on sleep today.

EDIT: I decided to take the plunge and use my cup. It's such a relief to not be using tampons! Thanks for the advice!

I have used my Diva Cup with my Mirena when it was first inserted and I was bleeding a lot. I was very careful to break the seal of the cup before starting to remove it and I didn't have any issues. Good luck!

Make sure you break the seal and pull the cup out very slowly. Like xsaltyx, I also used my cup (also a Diva) right after insertion. Besides, you're past the first three months wherein the risk of expulsion is highest.

Use it! I've been using a Diva Cup for five years and got my Mirena almost three years ago and have been using my Diva the entire time. I've had no issues at all. Just pull it out slowly and make sure there isn't too much suction and you should be fine.
