I'm semi-new to menstrual cups. I came across an article talking about alternatives to the traditional pads and tampons about a year ago and was instantly intrigued. I can't begin to express my deep hatred for pads, and tampons have always been finicky and shoddy at best for me. The cups caught my attention, so I looked around, did rather vague research at the time and bought the Instead Softcups for a while. They work okay but not great for my first few heavy days, so I did more thorough digging and to my luck found this place.
It has been a blessing and very helpful though still after a few more comments before I go buying in a couple days.
About the cervix. I keep reading/seeing people say it feels like the tip of your nose but for me that hasn't really been the case. Every time I feel for it, all I feel is a lil' small hole on the tip of what feels like a small round ball. So would that be my cervix? I haven't felt anything else and I believe I managed to touch the majority, if not, all of everything inside.
Now if it is my cervix then I would say it's about 3/3.5 inches [76/89 mm, 7.6/8.9 cm] deep, and slightly to the left side while on my time of the month [I have to really push my index finger in to reach it and my index finger is about 3.5 inches]. Looking at the cups on the first chart here [http://menstrualcups.wordpress.com/2010/08/19/cup-size-comparison-charts/] and staying to just the US ones, I was thinking the Divacup. Good capacity for my heavier days and length including stem is 70 which should be just right, right? hehe How would positioning go as well since it's slightly to the left?
Last thing curious to know... Would having clitoral orgasms with the cup inside be fine? Without dislodging it or having [much] leakage from the contracting muscles?
Sorry for the wall of text. Just the few last questions I had that I couldn't really find out about.
Please and Thank you in advance for any comments/responses.
P.S. - Was always curious... What happens when you're asleep? o_o Does it spill inside you or anything? What about when you toss and turn? lol
