Hibiscus

Leaks...

Hey there!
I've been a cup user for 3 years now. Last year i had a baby (c-section after trying natural birth unsuccessfully). Since then, my cups have fit kinda weird. They tend to leak now and I'm not sure what's causing it. I have a large lunette and a large keeper brand moon cup. I wore my moon cup today and kept repositioning it and nothing seemed to work. I just switched to my Lunette to see if this one will fit better for now. I've heard of the "wandering cervix" and I'm not really sure if that is a problem because I've never really checked it. But most often the leak problem is at the beginning of my period during my heaviest flow, towards the end it seems ok. Any suggestions?

Edit: Also, I'm looking for some new cups that are available in the US, because, i too, am looking for my magic perfect cup.

Help for selection of cup for keen runner with low cervix

I am a a fairly active woman, running and exercising 5-6 days a week and since having my tubes tied am suffering from such heavy periods that it stops me from doing any exercise for up to 4 days of my cycle.
I had hoped that wearing a cup would allow me to be able to continue exercising through my period, but i now realise i went into the whole selection process blind and uninformed and as a consequence seem to have chosen poorly.
I have been doing research but there is just so much out there that i am now very confused!
I am 39 years old and have had 2 vaginal births. I initially chose the Juju cup but it would seem that i have a low cervix and its just not working for me. Most of the time it feels like it is falling out and the one time i ran in it it was a total disaster.
I was hoping to find some suggestions from people who have the same situation with a low cervix.
I really want to succeed at using a cup and just feel so defeated at the moment, all help will be greatly appreciated!!
