You probably get a bajillion of these, so I apologize in advance. I just want to make sure I'm making the right decision since it's a big money investment. :)

I'm pretty sure it was fate that I ran out of both pads AND tampons on the last day of my last period, which was Earth Day! Clearly some people up above are conspiring to finally get a menstrual cup in me ;)

I'm 22 (I'll be 23 in July). I'm 5'4" and 140 lbs, so I'm sort of tiny? I've never had penetrative sex and I've never been pregnant. I'm gay, and I don't want kids, so there's no chance of pregnancy in the future, either.

I generally use super or super plus tampons during my period.

So, community members, depart unto me your wisdom: which cup should I buy? I'd like to buy a cup before my next period, so ideally in the next few days. :)

(there should be some sort of generator thing where you put in all of this information and it spits out your options....)

The cervix should definitely stand out from the rest of your tissues, I tend to picture it as a protruding belly button. it's definitely rounded, with a tiny indentation in the middle where the blood comes from. It should also feel funny, almost uncomfortable for some people, a deep awkward sensation inside your belly.

It sounds to me like you may get confused with your urethral sponge, also called the g-spot area. It's a rougher area on the front wall, right behind your bladder, near your pubic bone. If you press on it, it makes you want to pee a little (it can also be erotic when circumstances are right). The cervix isn't necessarily at the top, but it's most likely towards the "end" of your vagina. I once read somebody's advice that aiming for your cervix was like aiming for your a**hole from the inside. Not a nice image, but that's what it is for me.

Super helpful description, thanks! I know that deep awkward sensation inside my belly that you've described, it happens sometimes during sex if my boyfriend "goes too deep". Funny enough, I get the same sensation if someone pokes my belly button.

My problem is that I always thought my cervix is low, but can't locate it, and my new lunette (model 1) makes me feel a bit queasy when I use it (better when I flip it inside out, and I trimmed the first notch off on the stem). I feel like it may be too long, because the same queasy sensation occurred for me when I tried Soft Cups, and that I thought was from too much cervical contact.
