Hi Cupper,I’m 40 yo Mom with 3 kids,pardon my English bcause I don’t speak or write too well ,
my first cup is mooncup mcuk size A, I love the material,its easy to pop up inside,I don’t hv problem putting in, my mistake was I cut the stem too short bcause I thought I had short pelvic, i measure with my middle finger,I could touch my cervix,probably 7cm from vagina opening
So when I try on dry,I decide to cut the stem and left 1 cm,I should wearing them for an hour because I just found out when my period come,that pelvic muscle shift up my cup so deep after a while,
I still can reach the tip of the stem,but it was so hard to pull ,so it’s always battle everytime to pull out the cup although I still confident to wear cup,I can manage to pull out 3 babies,soo no problem,it just a cup :D

It doesn make any sense to me because my cervix position is 6-7cm fr opening,then my mooncup is 6cm long,it was like my vagina eat my cup,it move 4 cm fr opening,it can’t b shrink,I don’t hv leak problem

Is that mean I hv weak pelvic muscle?Btw I do yoga almost everyday,but I don’t know whether my pelvic muscle stong or weak,if the cause is my pelvic muscle strenght

Then I buy meluna classic Extra Large ball stem on menstrualcup co,try on when dry,I loveee it,it’s sit comfortably,very easy to pull out,doesn’t hurt (with mooncup smtime it hurt to pull out),like others say that meluna tend to oval shape when inside,and I thing meluna classic stiffer than mooncup mcuk perhaps because the material is different
And it didn’t slap my pelvic floor when pop up like mooncup( I feel little on mooncup),I don’t know it leaking or not cause haven’t test yet on my period(I m waiting unpassionally)
I wear about an hour on dry,and like other cup,it move deeper(again),but now easier to grip

Does anyone experience like mine?does it mean my pelvic floor is weak,consider my age,40yo,and 3 vaginal birth eventhough I do yoga everyday almost a year now

This sounds pretty normal to me. It does not sound like your pelvic floor is weak, because that would cause the cup to slip down, not up.
In general, cups will sit where they like, and for many of us, that means that they will sit high, with the rim circling the cervix. This also explains where the extra length goes: it sits around your cervix, not below it.

If you have trouble gripping your cup for removal, push it down with your 'baby birthing muscles'.

No, your pelvic floor is not weak. The Mooncup is too short for you. The XL Meluna is longer and fits you better. :o)

the cervix is not the end of the vagina. in some cases it can be compared to a small penis :D maybe the tip of your cervix is in the middle of the cup, not at the top like the diagrams describe.
also the position is very important. my mother can't remove her cup in the shower but on the toilet it's very easy for her:)

I just told my friend the same thing last week ("Geez, my vagina like to EAT my cups now, lol!"). I have been doing more exercising to help my pelvic muscles lately. I used to need a shorter cup. Now with yoga/pilates/kegels, I have seen that I can use a much longer cup (although my medium length cups still work, too). It sounds like you may have a similar shape. Having babies and our age(I have had 4 myself, age 37) makes our vaginas more able to accept wider cups, and exercise like yoga keeps us very strong inside that cups will want to sit much higher.

It sounds like the XL Meluna will work very good for you. Wide and long sounds like the shape that works for you. And like others have said, it sounds like your cervix dips a little into the cup (the "vagina eating up your cup" feeling), but you likely have strong muscles that move your cup higher, so the cervix sits inside of it. But that's okay, since the Meluna will still have lots of room left for your blood. It's one cup that is recommended for exactly the case of a "dangly" cervix.
