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.

The fleurcup, si-bell and sckooncup are all good shorter, good capacity soft options. compare them side by side with your Divacup here: http://www.femininewear.co.uk/comparison-photos-49-w.asp and here: http://menstrualcups.friendhood.net/f52-moderator-s-photo-library so you can see what they actually look like. the size charts is length without the stems. :)

also, please can you remove/edit the 'ladies' in the last paragraph of your post? not everyone on here who has advice to give identifies as a lady and we try to be gender neutral/inclusive here. :)

Thank you for the links! I had found them once and then couldn't get back to them. Edited :)
