I decided to find a softer cup and went for the new Sckoon. My cups tend to be worn really high, but as I said earlier, I can't get this one to open. My lumpy vaginal walls squish it flat, and if I manage to get some air inside it I then cannot get it to seal and it gradually pushes itself out. I should add that I am 42 and have had four children (1 c-section and 3 VBAC's), so it seems unlikely to me that it's too big.
I have also recently acquired a large and a small Ladycup. They both open fine and stay in. What I do notice is that large cups tend to migrate north, heading way up shortly after insertion. If I place them lower they stick out and are definitely far from comfortable. I can, however, wear the small Ladycup lower in the vagina, just above the pubic bone. I feel it, but it's not horribly uncomfortable, and it stays low rather than slipping upward.
Does anyone have any pointers for the Sckoon? I really want it to work for me. I cannot rotate it as it is flat when inside. If I allow it to open low, it gets squished again as I try to ease it upward. Could it be the holes? They are pretty big on the outside if the cup but are really tiny on the inside of the cup.
