Hi ladies,

I'm wondering if you can help me. I was a happy divacup (size 1) user for a bit over a year, but then I started having problems with it being uncomfortable and sort of migrating out. I suppose I might've lost my technique for putting it in, but it really seemed like my anatomy had changed somehow and it just wouldn't stay in no matter what I did.

(I'm 26, sexually active, have never given birth or even been pregnant. I am inclined to think that my vagina is on the small side, and I suspect my cervix might be a bit low. I had to trim the stem of my divacup and it still sometimes stuck out and made me a bit uncomfortable. I doubt the slippage was related to my pelvic floor muscles, as they're pretty strong and this only started to happen recently.)

I just used cloth pads for a couple of months, and then last weekend I moved house and I didn't come across it in my cleaning. I think I may have inadvertently thrown it out.

I'm looking to replace it now, and I'm a bit bamboozled by all the brands that are on the market at the moment. I like the look of the Miacup but it looks a lot like the divacup, and I'm wondering if that just doesn't suit me.

Would a bigger cup be less likely to migrate out? Or would I probably have more trouble getting it in, since I'm still on the small side?

Any advice you can offer will be greatly appreciated.
