Low cervix, heavy flow

I have a low cervix, so I'm looking for a shorter cup.  (even though I'm over 25 and post-childbirth)  Diva 2 inside out at 52mm was still too long.  But I also have [at least what I consider] a heavy flow and was looking for a capacity greater than that of most of the small cups (10ml) - obviously realizing that with a low cervix, the high capacity cups at 25-30ml are out of the question.  I'm wondering if the Small Lunette, Fleurcup or Yuuki would be a good compromise since they are about 47mm long and have a capacity of about 20ml.  (Also wanting to avoid the TPE material, which is a shame because I think the Med Meluna would be a good one to try.)

If anybody has had more than one of those 3 cups (Sm Lunette, Fleurcup or Yuuki) and has a preference, please weigh in!

If you have a low cervix, please weigh in on what cup you like!

If you have any of the 3 cups mentioned and really dislike them for any reason, please weigh in!


First Insertion... soo happy!!

Ok, so I just got my diva cup, and had been trying for 2 straight days to get it in!! Very frustrating, I can tell you that, lol... I'm 20, a virgin, and still in the dry run phase, btw. I read the Virgin's Guide to Cups, read as many posts as I could, looked at diagrams, and tried all the different folds. Still nothing, and no matter how much I tried to relax, it was so painful! However,I can still remember the first time I used a tampon, which was even worse. Haha, it took me a full week one of those in by myself (but maybe that's tmi)...

Anyways, I woke up this morning, and got it on the 3rd try! Yay! I kinda had to force it all the way in, and couldn't figure out whether it was open. I could still feel it, but after a minute or two, I felt the pop into place. Now, it's almost like nothing's there, unless I move a certain way. =)  I'm going to wait a while before removal and I'm going to keep practicing until my period comes. I wanted to know, though... If I trim the stem, will I not be able to feel it at all?

Diva, maybe?

Is there anyone that really likes the Diva cup? I see alot of love for the Lady Cups... and they ARE pretty, but seem to be shorter than what I suspect I need. *lol* Sooo... I'm kinda thinking of getting a Diva. I just want to know... if you have a higher up cervix... what do YOU use? Would you even reccomend a lady? Or would you go Diva? I am still confused, even upon reading the length charts. *sigh*
