New Cup Help

Hello everyone,

I am new to the community and have some questions. I have been looking around the blog for opinions but at this point, I think it's best just to ask.

I have had an MCUK for about a year now. I love my cup, but it is too long for me and is causing some irritation even with the stem completely cut off. Seeing as I have a low cervix and am a virgin, I've been thinking of going with the mini meluna. However, I am having trouble deciding what softness to go for. Does anyone know how the soft and classic Mini varieties compare? Also, I am very active and like participating in many sports including running, swimming, cycling, and yoga. Does softness make a difference in keeping the cup in place? I've read a lot of conflicting information on this point. I've had no leakage problems with my current cup and dont want to start now! (Though I do feel the cup a bit when it is in place which makes me want to try a softer cup. But given the info on the meluna page about how those who are active in sports that strengthen the pelvic floor like yoga shouldnt use the soft cup, it makes me afraid to try the soft one!)

Also, with a low cervix do you suggest a medium or small size? My flow varies greatly month to month from very heavy months to months with next to nothing, but right now I'm more worried about solving this irritation issue.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks!
