Hi Folks,

I hope I can get some advice. I have bought the Diva Cup- didn't do much on the way of cervix vs. cup stuff- until it's my period and the Diva Cup is horrid to my lady parts.

So I googled trouble shooting tips for the Diva and found this amazing community and now I need advice because after going through post after post I have about confused the crap out of myself.

So here are the deets:

I'm 27, 1 vaginal birth, have a very low sitting cervix. Flow is heavy first day and light the rest of the days. I love the cup- I have no issue with width or removal or insertation.

Issues:

The diva cup is waaayy to long- I've cut off the stem and was still way too long. Flipped it inside out- and it was better except it won't stay put at this point and is annoying the hell outta me. I am clenching my pelvic muscles all day long and the minute I relax while it's inside out it's like a slip and slide in there. (Yes the cup is fully open).

So do you have any suggestions on which cup would be a better fit for me? I've seen Meluna and all sorts batted around and am weighing in for advice before trying to locate a purchasing site.

I appreciate it.

Yes I'm still on my period. My cervix sits very low on my period, it's sitting that way now and it's day 3- light flow territory. By tomorrow my flow will be non existent.

I've looked a the size chart for the cups and I like the dimensions of the Fleur and the Skoon. Other than the Diva's length and pointiness when used OTB it's just fine. I like the more rounded shape the diva gets when flipped- but then it doesn't want to stay and still too long. I guess I could give it another shot after this but, it's not what I want to do.

Thanks!
