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.

Check the various size charts over at the Community FAQ to compare your Diva to the other brands. Also look at side by side photos to compare shapes. Would a blunt based cup stay put better than a pointy one? The large Fleurcup has a good reputation as a "Mommy sized/shaped" cup. Would it suit you too? Another that is shaped similarly?

There is often childbirth-related prolapse and general abdominal weakening after having had a baby that can be reversed with exercise and by strengthening your core. If you think things are still hanging "too low" inside, then it's worth mentioning to your Doctor next time you go.

I will definitely look at the photos to compare some shapes.

It's been 9 years since I've had my child, I'm physically back in shape and no prolapse. My GYN says everything is just fine in the lady bits dept. I'm just physically petite and everything is in proportion to that.

I have a feeling the Sckoon size 2 might work for you! Oh, that rhymed :-)

I have a low cervix and heavy flow for 2 days and the Sckoon size 2 is my go to those days. I tend to wear my Sckoon size 1 on day 1, part of day 2, then switch to my size 2 on night 2 thru day 5. I put the size 1 back in on day 5/6. The Diva just hangs right out of me (Sorry for the visual)!
