Hello all! I am new to LG and to menstrual cups for that matter… I think I accidentally started this discussion in the MC sales so I wanted to post it here. I need some help! I am 26 and am ready to give cups a try, I have been lurking on here for a while and it seems that the softer cups are more comfortable (especially for a noobie) I am open to suggestions but I was looking at Si-Bell, Sckooncup, and even a lunette…I feel like I am kind of stuck. I have no children and am not sexually active …which leads me to pick the smaller size cup but I have a moderate-heavy flow( especially on the first 2 days) and I getting closer to the 30 year mark…which makes me think larger. I haven’t checked where my cervix is on my period, but I have no trouble inserting a super/ super+ tampon, off my period I can’t reach it without bearing down…(sorry if this is all TMI but I really appreciate a place to talk openly about this stuff!) Do I just have to suck it up and get a smaller size cup and possibly change it more frequently? Like I said I am totally new to cups, but any and all suggestions would be so helpful! I know it sounds lame but 30- 40 dollars is an investment for me…I just want to find something that works! You guys are great…thanks!

As Kuradi8 said, I would take the time to look for your cervix and choose a cup based on their actual dimensions, not guidelines. I don't think there's any reasons you couldn't get a large size if you think that'll fit you lengthwise and you'll be comfortable with a few more mms to handle (and most likely you will be, vaginas are stretchy and amazing). I'm personally a huge advocate of softer cups, started out at 24, no babies, with a large Cuplee and haven't regretted my first choice. I like how gentle they are to pop open (strike that, to unfold... you kinda need to give them a little push, but that's OK with me) and how easily I can grab them and refold them for removal. I could advise you a bunch of brands and models based on my preferences, but I think it would be best for you to figure out yours first... and feel free to ask more questions if you have any! ;)
