This is my first cycle wearing a cup. I'm 17 and a virgin. I have a small mini soft meluna cup. The first two days where great, with no discomfort, but after a couple days I started to feel a cramping feeling. It's not very bad but definitely there. I notice it more when the cup sits higher up, and goes away when it's lower. It also lessens when I move around. Do you think it's pushing against the pelvic bone and that's what's causing it?

I was wondering if any of you have any suggestions for this problem. Thanks for your input!

It's probably suckering onto your cervix (creating suction on the cervix itself rather than sitting around it). The Lily was doing this for me when I didn't insert it slightly to the left, since my cervix kind of hangs to the left. You might try feeling around for your cervix (I assume it's reachably low, since you didn't write us panicking about not being able to remove your Meluna!) and seeing if it sits to one side or not. Another possibility is a wider but still really soft cup that will sit around the cervix (because it's wider than your cervix) and not on top of it :)

Your pelvic bone is your hip bone so no, I don't think that's it. You probably meant to say pubic bone but cups sit above that so that's probably not it either. The small Mini MeLuna is a TEENY cup and could be irritating your cervix. It will probably diminish as your body gets used to wearing a cup. If not, get through the learning curve with it and get to know what you like and don't like about the cup you have before deciding what to get next. Use http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ or any of the charts at the Community FAQ to figure out which ones might fit/suit you best and then use side by side comparison photos of those to pick the one you think is shaped most comfortably.

I tried your sugestions and they really helpe! I realized that after I put in the cup I would push it up, twist it and then pull it down. I think pulling it down was causing to much pull on my cervix. I now know not to do that! Instead I push it up the relieve that pressure.

Thank you guys so much for your help!
