Hi there,
I need some serious help choosing a new cup. My cervix is very low and my LadyCup is far too long, even with the stem trimmed almost right off. I've read that the Meluna cups aren't made from silicone, and I would like a silicone one if possible. I'm so overwhelmed by all the brands and size charts. So could someone please tell me the shortest cups available. I've had two children and I'm 28 years old. 
Many thanks.

Can you give us some idea of how low 'very low' is in this case?

Hi, it varies greatly depending on where I am in my cycle but at it's lowest, maybe 1 1/2 inches?? I haven't paid that close attention but will do from now on.
Thanks.

That's not very low in my view... I'd call that just low.

Mine is similar in height, I have a Ladycup too, and I cut and filed the stem all the way off and the pointy end was still chafing me.
So I got a round-ended cup, in my case the Fleurcup, cut the stem off and even filed the grip rings mostly off, and now it's as comfortable as a pair of old shoes.
Maybe it would work for you, too.

If you don't want to do all the work to file the grip rings down, you could also cut the stem off and flip the cup inside out, it stays the same shape when you do that (most cups don't).

You'll find pictures of my cup, before and after, ib this posting:

This, and before you get a different cup, have you tried wearing your cup inside out ?
