I tried looking in the tags section, but wasn't really sure which one to look at...Searched anything related to stems, but nothing.

So just a quick question: how far down should the stem sit? below or above my Pelvic floor muscles? I have a Meluna Classic in Small and Medium. When I have it inserted the cup tilts to the right (stem sits on right side) above my PC muscles, but I feel like I'm constantly digging inside during removable. Does any one have a cup that has the stem close to PC muscles, or below? Would it be uncomfortable? Since the Fleur is on sale..and the large looks pretty long with the stem, I was thinking of getting one.
Is there an chart like the one on sizecharts that have comparisons of length that includes the stem?

(not-so-quick question)

Thanks in advance for always being infinitely helpful.

For me personally, if the stem is irritating me then I know I need to readjust (my cup will leak at this position). When my cup is correctly positioned it's comfortable - the stem is about an inch from my entrance at this point. This is entirely subjective though. Some people don't even need the stem for removal (I am unfortunately not one of those people but I also have an iud so I'm overly cautious with removal). It really all depends on what you're comfortable with - it should be high enough that it's not irritating but low enough that you feel confident with removal. As long as your comfortable and not leaking it's all good
