Can cups make cervical ectropions worse?


I'm new to the community but have been reading the posts for quite while. The information on here is really useful and it's great to see so many people willing to share their experiences.

Anyway, I was told by by nurse during my last smear that I have an ectropion (aka an erosion) on my cervix and was wondering if anyone knows if a cup would aggravate this or make it worse. I got a small Mooncup UK about a year ago and love it, and last month brought a small MeLuna classic ring stem too. I have a very high cervix even though I'm only 5'1'', and both cups seem to ride low so I don't think they actually come into contact with my cervix. I was just wondering if anybody had come across any info on this, my nurse couldn't tell me anything as she said she hadn't ever had a patient who used a cup. Any opinions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
