I've used a cup and/or cloth pads for a few years now at least so this isn't necisarily the typical question. To explain myself.I own a large fleurcup, a large meluna, and a small meluna. All of which work for me at different times. Where my issue lies is when I wake up from sleeping at night. My fleurcup rides up high by morning, which I understand it will go where it pleases and I don't have an issue with that part. Problem is by morning it seems to ride so high I can just about reach it with 1 finger sometimes I can't reach it except for the stem if I can reach that well enough to grip. Usually I can't. Aparently I have a high cervix which I didn't realize as my cups don't always move up so high.
I know the normal answer to this would be change position, squat, or one leg up on the toilet seat. The trick with me is I cannot walk, stand up to change position, or balance myself enough to squat in any way. When I do manage to grab my cup if it goes on a disappearing mission I am basicly sitting on my hand which isn't a good thing either because I lack flexability in my hips and my balance stinks also so I could fall when I have to do that.
I was wondering which longer cups would work for me. Or at least your opinions Also I need a large compacity because my first day or two I am quite heavy. Anyway, I was looking around and was thinking either a large Yuuki, A large Diva, or an Extra large Meluna. I have more concerns as to which would work though. The Yuuki is aparently very stiff according to the charts compared to the fleurcup at least. The stiffness of the fleur usually doesn't bother me. 9 times out of 10 I don't feel it and the times I do I think are just crappy blechy periods anyway. The Yuuki though is a considerable bit stiffer than that though. I leant towards the Yuuki in the first place for the extra compacity. Is the stiffness something I'd get used to and feel less as time went on? Just like you get used to wearing a cup.
I know the Diva is the longest cup available but I'm slightly scared of the evil (or so I've heard) suction holes. I don't have much ability to steady myself with my legs alone. So if one hand was busy fiddling to break the suction for a couple minutes I'd be a little nervous because of the position leaning over. Plus, if I remember right it has less compacity than some of the other larges? Also I think I would actually prefer a stiffer cup. As I said fiddling in a wonky position long unnerves me so it'd be easier if it popped open quicky. The last option i found was the X Large meluna. My concern there is how much compacity I'd actually gain?If it would warrant buying a meluna over the other cups. As it is I bought the fleurcup after having a large meluna for the extra compacity. Also it is the most unreliable cup I have as far as popping open so Meluna and I do not have a good track record going. :)
So to paraphrase which cup would work for me out of those? Or any others if you think they'd work. Taking into account length and compacity being I need it and extra wouldnt hurt considering I'd be sleeping. Also it would be nice if it was on the stiffer side to pop open easy. Thanks for your help. Also, I apologize this is really long it's late :)
