Hi all,
I had a few wonderful cycles with a Naturalmamma cup that worked perfectly, and a Diva for my lighter days (less width at the bottom). Last month my cervix decided that instead of moving up beyond my reach like it had been doing, it would move down to only 50mm in. My Diva is not usable since the cup with stem trimmed off now pokes out and my Naturalmamma's stem (which I depend on for removal) is out while the bottom of the cup is against my bone instead of above it. I'm giving it another month to see if this is a permanent trend or a two time fluke, but I suspect a shorter cup might be more comfortable (there is a ton of cramping this time around that I don't normally get-can't tell if it's a too long cup or just my uterus having angries).
AND THE POINT! I'm eyeballing a L Sckoon, L Lunette, or L Fleurcup. Fleurcup's capacity looks awesome, but both it and the Lunette are on the very wide side of the chart. Do these guys fold easily? I know once I get it in it should be OK since those muscles are made to be super stretchy and pliable, I'm just concerned about insertion/removal since my hymen is still there and makes dealing with something as wide as the Natrualmamma a bit of a fight. Thoughts?

The difference in rim width is only 3mm, which is the size of a 10-15 point diamond -- an accent stone.

The large Sckoon is 50mm long and reviews say it's squishy. The large Lunette and large Fleurcup are both 52mm long. The large Lunette is fairly stiff, the large Fleurcup is squishy. Also compare their shapes. Blunt vs pointy based.

Or you can just flip your Diva inside out to shorten it. It's perfectly OK to wear it that way if it works for you. (Does for me.)

Just want to chime in on cervix position: some months mine is very very low and some it is 'normal'. I don't know how many people experience a rather acrobatic cervix, but mine has even moved way back to my tail bone so that the only way to get the cup around it was to stand while inserting!
