Hey ladies,
So I've recently learned about menstrual cups, and HOLY COW!! Why was I never told about these before?! As someone who is blessed to have two seven-day periods a month, it's something I really want to try. I'm currently doing research on which one seems to be the best for me, but I could use some help.

Since having a kid, my hooha seems to reject everything. I had an IUD put in. It fell out 2 hours later. I had another put in, and it lasted 2 weeks before falling out. My doctor told me I was one of those rare people where my lady parts just don't like to be bothered. Since having kids, it's even the same with tampons. They just don't stay in me. I go to the bathroom and they somehow find a way to fall into the toilet. I know. Awesome.

So I'm wondering if I use a menstrual cup, will it just fall out like everything else? I would hate to waste my money on something that won't work for me. Is there a certain brand or cup that works better for issues like this?

Thanks in advance.

Cups stay in with suction, so I think you'd have better luck getting one to stay in than a tampon. I would go through the size tag and find whichever cup looks largest (most cups come in at least 2 sizes, the larger one being specifically for heavy flows or women who have given birth). This isn't a comprehensive comparison of every cup type, just a few, but it looks like the Meluna XL, Miacup 2, or Yuuki 2 are one of the largest! http://menstrualcup.co/communitypics/picture_comparison_menstrual_cup.jpg

Good luck!
