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.

People have said that the Lunette's flat stem was less irritating than a hollow stem, though it sounds like it wouldn't be as flexible as the ones you mentioned.

I noticed that as well. Hollow stems don't have as much give, plus are an additional thing you have to clean. For instance, the hollow Eco-cup/Lybera and Rubycup stems are noticeably more rigid than the flat Fleurcup and Mamicup stems, but the softest are the Si-bell/Natu. The Sckoon stems are somewhere in-between.. a bit more rigid, but making the end pointy was a weird design decision, as it can poke you.
