Hi there,
I'm sure this topic has been discussed over and over but I need help fast!
I'm 28 and purchased my first cup, a LadyCup, after I had my first baby at age 24 and experienced issues with tampons for the first time. And I love the idea of using a cup, BUT I've had a bit of trouble getting it to work properly. I've got some pelvic floor issues, not related to pregnancy and childbirth. I gave birth to my second child a year ago and have only just got my period back and my cervix is quite low and I believe in a bit of an awkward position, according to my midwife. I have trouble getting the cup to fully pop expand, and it just leaks all the time.

Should I try a different cup? There are so many different types it's a bit overwhelming, and I'm looking for some experienced people to give me some advice!

Thanks in advance :-)
