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.

The best cup for you depends on your own personnal anatomy.
The most important factor is length available. Use this chart and the links on the same page to determine what would fit YOU best : http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/

Since you've had a child and your muscles seem to be somewhat out of shape, you'll definitely need a larger size to help it stay in place, but ultimately it's your flesh forming a light seal around the cup that holds it in place. So you'll still need to regain some muscle tone, which is always good in order to prevent future incontinence issues. Here's a descriptive link about the importance of squats: http://www.alignedandwell.com/katysays/you-dont-know-squat/
