so, i've been trying out my new small lunette, and like my other cups, it still feels like it's on the verge of falling out, especially when i do something physical like shovel snow. it's the fourth cup i've tried, and i'm getting a little frustrated! i've decided that there are two options. one, try a shorter cup with a rounded bottom, like a fleur or sckoon. or two, try a more firm cup, like a meluna classic or sport. is there a cup out there that is rounded like a sckoon, but more firm than those? i need it quite short, as i have a really low cervix. please help me!! i love cups, and i'll keep using them even though i'm currently annoyed with them, but i really want to find a solution! i need a cup that i don't feel the need to clench my legs together because i feel it sliding!

Which ones have you tried so far, apart from the Lunette, and what sizes?

The eco-cups I just got in the mail today fit the firmness bill: a tiny bit firmer than the small Sckoon and fleurcup, and very short. I misplaced all my classic Melunas - but when I find them again, I'll compare to those as well. The bottom is a bit less bell shaped.
Or maybe the Ruby cup?

I have not tried any of those yet, but see my entry from today for pics and descriptions.

I am so sorry it is taking you so long to find your perfect cup. I am soooo lucky that pretty much any cup I've tried so far has really worked for me.

i've tried a large diva (first cup ever, didn't know it was the longest. definitely didn't work...), a large ladycup, a mini meluna medium, and a small lunette. the two larges i got just because i fit the "profile" of age and child-bearer. i still use the ladycup, inside out, mostly just for at night when i don't want to get up to empty it. so far the mini seems the best for length, but it doesn't hold as much and it'll still get that falling out feeling.

I wonder if the SckoonCup size 2 might work for you. It's a larger cup with a shorter stem. So far it's working great for my low cervix. I work out all the time and I haven't had the feeling that it's going to fall out. It's soft but gets more firm at the top of the cup. I haven't had issues with it not opening and I use the C fold.

Good luck!

i've thought about the larger sckoon, but it's longer than the lunette and *that* sits right there at the bottom. stems don't matter, every cup i ever get will have that thing chopped right off. *sigh* i just don't know. i'd love to try all the cups, but it's getting annoying to keep buying and selling them!! :P

are you sure the large sckoon is longer than the lunette? I don't own a lunette but I think I've seen a comparison shot, pretty sure sckoon was shorter, at least without the stem ....might be worth looking in to ! :)

it says it's a little longer on the size chart someone made on here. it's close, yeah, but maybe a little longer? i saw a comparison pic, too, and the small sckoon looks quite a bit shorter. i'll have to go look again, now...

If you're unsure here is the link to the SckoonCup size chart: http://www.sckooncup.com/sckooncup-menstrual-cup-aqua.html.

Did anything work?
Hi! I just saw your thread. I tried a Diva cup size 2 and it bothered me! I would think I got it in far enough but after a few minutes of walking around it would get lower and lower until the base was coming out: very uncomfortable! I turned it inside out to make it shorter, but same thing. After some research I bought a Skoon cup. This is my first cycle using the Skoon cup but same thing! It keeps falling out! I am so frustrated! Did anything work for you?
