I am currently in the middle of my third period with a large Ladycup and it's proving to be much different from my last two cycles. The first two, the cup rode high enough that I did not need to cut off any of the stem because it fit all the way inside. I also had never been able to find my cervix (during or between my periods). However, this period the cup kept riding low and the stem is a bit irritating, so now I'm considering trimming it. I didn't understand why until I investigated and found my cervix for the first time! It's so cute and smooth :). It must be lower than in the past and so it is causing the cup to sit lower. Also, today for the first time I was having quite a bit of leaking. I took it out and reinserted it and realized that my cervix was outside of the cup - wow! I pulled the cup a little lower and also kind of tried to push the cervix up and inside the rim. But at least I know why I was having leaks.
