hi all! i'm currently trying out my fourth cup, and i've realized that all the cups i've tried seem to have the more pointy bottom. i have a really low cervix, and so far all of the cups (except maybe the mini meluna i have, it's pretty small) i have tried spend a lot of time feeling like they're going to fall out with the wrong move. would a more rounded bottom cup fix this issue? i have tried the diva (my first cup, and when i discovered my low cervix), large ladycup, mini meluna medium, and currently am trying a small lunette, because it's shorter than the ladycup but with more capacity than my meluna. just wondering what i should try if the lunette has the same issues? maybe a sckoon or fleur? what do you think?

The large Fleurcup is a common goldilocks cup for those with a low cervix looking for a decent capacity regardless, it seems to fit those with a cervix as low as 3cm, despite being longer than that. Another thing to try would be to flip your pointy cups inside out, as that would typically make them shorter and less pointy.

Good point! The Diva gets particularly blunt when flipped inside out. Try that one first.

I have a low cervix as well, and lean towards bell shaped cups, especially since my cervix takes up some space inside the cup. For me, the small Fleurcup, small Si-bell, and most of my Melunas work great. I found that when I pee, if I leave a stem on a cup, it feels as if I am losing my cup. I don't need stems anyway, so I just cut them off now.

So: try to cut off the stem and see if that helps :)

thanks for your suggestions! i do flip the cups inside out. the diva was still too long like that, so i gave it to my sister. i think the ladycup may be just too slippery? the mini meluna, i wear both ways, but the capacity is a little small and when it gets full, it tries to slide out. two of the cups i purchased didn't have a stem, and i cut the stem off my lunette yesterday, and have it flipped inside out. so far it seems to be doing a good job, but i'm not on my heaviest day, so we'll see. i dunno. maybe just stuff i'll have to deal with with any cup! :P

a large sckoon, large fleur or large si-bell would be good options to try :)

I just responded to someone else with a similar question. I have a low cervix and have a SckoonCup size 2. It works really well for me. The capacity is great and the stem is shorter than the SckoonCup size 1, great for those with a low cervix!

I'm a newbie so I don't have a ton of experience yet but I'll share my 2 cents. I've got a low cervix too and went from the Lunette L to L Sckoon. The stem bothered me so I cut it off, but the pretty petal grips bother me even more. So while size, capacity, and softness are really nice, you may want to keep in mind textures and consider if that might be a factor. If not, Sckoon could be a great cup for you. (I haven't had luck with it inside out).

The Lunette inside out has worked for me, but not perfectly.

You can file off grippy textures with a nail file, if they bother you. I've done that before - do it while watching TV, cause it takes about 10 mins of filing ;)
