I have been researching menstrual cups a lot and have found many horror stories about the Diva Cup being too long or not fitting right. I know there are many options for menstrual cups, but the Diva Cup seems to be the most advertised and talked about. I have never used a menstrual cup and am fascinated by the concept. I would love to buy one, but am unsure of which one would work best for me.

I am 16 years old and a virgin. I am very petite (5 foot 0 inches). Although I am very active (running and softball), I have weak pelvic muscles. I tend to stay away from tampons when I can because I can feel most. I don't know the position of my cervix and am not sure how to find it. I have a fairly normal flow so capacity isn't a huge issue, but I do spend around nine hours at school each day so I am looking for a cup that can hold that amount.

Do you have any recommendations or suggestions?

The small or large Si-bell and the small or large Cuplee would probably be good choices for you. I recommend them because they are both soft cups that pop open very easily. I have tried both cups. I also like the Shecup, but it's capacity is kind of low, so it's best used for light-flow days at the end of the period. I have tried a lot of cups so let me know if you have any questions. I can always let you know my experience with the cups I've tried, but your experience may vary!
