Hello all. I have learned a lot from you guys, and you guys rock. Reading from the entries, I've settled on a large fleur cup which works like a charm in my day to day work. It's when I exercise that's a whole other story. The fleurcup works when I'm on the stairmaster or just walking. When I jog and run, I have leaks even though the cup is in. I was wondering if anyone had this problem and what are ways to deal with it? One of the reason I settled on a fleurcup is that I have a retroverted cervix. My cervix is low enough that I can reach it barely. I assume that I would need a shorter cup with the hypothesis that my cup has been hitting the cervix and spilling its contents. I don't know if that is a plausible explanation, and I would love for any feedback.

It sounds like the suction may not be sufficient enough for it to stay put during that amount of movement?

If you can barely reach your cervix, it's not low.

It sounds to me like your muscles are crushing the cup, and a firmer one would probably serve you well.

Sorry this is happening to you: I run with my Fleurcups and have nevr had leaks. If you like everything else about your cup, you may want to check out the classic Melunas, which are very comparable in shape, but stiffer. Another step up is the Meluna sport, but I don't own one, so I would not be able to comment on comfort.
I agree with m03m: if you can barely reach your cervix, it's not low. I can easily reach mine.

Would you let us know of you found a better one for running? The question comes up sometimes, so it's good to keep in mind what works for some of us.

Thank you for the responses. I will look into Meluna classics and firmer cups. I'll give Meluna classic a shot. I'll let you guys know how it goes.
