I'm a 33 F, 5 7" married, not sexually active (I know right) mother of 1 (via c section) and I had to have some of my cervix removed. Will I still be able to use the cup? Today was the first day I heard of the cup, and am looking into it. I like the idea of being green, but am pretty heavy my first couple of days, then almost non existent & spotty later on.
I think (if it'll work w/ my cervix issue) I have a pretty high cervix, then it gets super low-when I"m spotty and still use tampon, it's very uncomfortable and bulges out.-not cool right. So I'm guessing I'd need to sizes also.

I read on the size chart, that you should feel on your next period for length. Why while on your period? Esp if it changes from day 1 to the end?

Thanks in advance!

Why while on your period? Because that's when you'll be using the cup. ;o)

Since yours is both high and low, two cups might suit you well. Or a medium length that might work for both.

My guess is that your vagina doesn't shorten all that much on your light spotty days -- it's just too dry in there for a tampon to slide around to get to its proper spot. That's why it's so uncomfortable and pokey. So start with a medium-to-long cup for your heavy days and then decide whether or not you'll need another for your light/spotty days. Whether cup or tampon, a dab of lube might help.

Depends on when you had your cervix removed
If you recently had the procedure, then it's not advisable as it takes quite a while for the cervix to heal and "grow back". If your cervix was removed within last 6 months, best to call the Dr to give you a clearance before using the cup.

I had part of my cervix removed as well via freezing method which they use this for cancer patients even though I don't have cancer. I had unexplained very heavy bleeding during sex that made it seemed like I was brutally raped and murdered (that messy!) I suspect that my cervix was turned inside out when the contraceptive was removed.

Doctor said the cervix would grow back like new and I went on to have another baby years later. Generally the cervix is higher during non menses period. It is also firmer.

I'm a very new user too and I have very heavy menses of about 150ml for the heaviest day alone. Most women have only about 50ml for the whole cycle. The cup is a life saver! I use the highest capacity one on heavier days and smaller cup for lighter days.
