Due to the Beyaz I'm on, I've had to become a continual use gal with my OrangeCup. And I feel like I'm worse off than I was when I first started using cups!!

I am constantly leaking. And it is doubley frustrating because I'm not even bleeding. Just mud-spotting. So, it's annoying that it isn't going into the cup.

I can't figure out what the heck I'm doing wrong, but it's really annoying me. Cups are so amazing and make me so happy. But I'm just frustrated. I insert, reinsert, position, test the seal. Everything.


I'm not giving up. Just feeling whiney. I can't figure out why I'm having so many problems all of the suddent.

which size do you have? i see you've fairly recently hit that magic point.
can it be that hbc (or what is that beyaz thing???) is affecting your cervix position? it sure made mine sit even lower than it normally is.

I'm using the small lady cup because, just like you, my cervix is very low. I don't even think the large lady cup would fit right now. *sigh*

I've been using cups since fall of 2009. I felt so awesomely pro at it. But lately, it's been a struggle.

I can only imagine how much worse my situation would be, though, if I didn't have a cup. Even if I'm struggling to use it.

well, a wide cup would also sit deeper. the large ladycup might be a bit too large as you say, maybe a large meluna? or even an old medium if you think the capacity will be enough for you.
even i'm able to wear a large ladycup inside out, in fact i'm not sure a small would fit better because it's also narrow.

another "classic" choice for low cervix is large lunette/fleurcup with exactly the same dimensions but some important differences in stiffness and shape. unless your cervix is literally RIGHT THERE these should fit well too.

another option could be a large juju as it's quite short.
