Hello everyone,

I had posted before about not having found my cervix and being worried I'd never find it/never find a cup because of it but I have wonderful news... I finally found it! I was sitting in my bathroom laughing, and probably creeping out my mother, because I was surprised at just how nose-tip-like it did feel. I'm about 6 or 7 days away from my period due date, and I made sure to take note of that for sure.

I tried again the next day (today) and either couldn't totally feel it or think it may have potentially been more to the back this time and was against my nail so I couldn't feel-feel it with my finger. I'm not totally sure but I will try again tonight. I've noticed it's easier to get to if I sit and kind of lean forward a bit... if that made sense. Is that normal?

I think, after all my research and recommendations, I will go for it and try the Si-Bell cup... with the stem it is longer than the Diva and is apparently soft enough that it would likely work for me and my high cervix. It's not that I need super capacity, my flow is not all THAT heavy for the most part.

What do you all think?

Thanks for any comments.

Yes, that makes sense. The position can change throughout the day, or even depending on your mood. If you are aroused, it goes up, for instance.

The Si-bell may work. Would you be able to reach its base with your thumb and index finger if you had to? Some people reported being able to just pull on the stem, but it would be good to pick a cup whose base you can reach nevertheless.
Have you looked into other longer cups as well?
There are two great comparison videos at the very bottom of this page that show a bunch of cups, trying to identify the softest:

It shoudl give you a good idea of size differences as well.
Hope this helps :)

BTW, the Si-bell seems to be the cheapest on that same site, if you decide to buy it. I paid much more for mine.

Thank you
Thanks for the information and for the referral to that website; you were right it was helpful to see the comparisons. I do still believe the Si-bell cup could be a good option for me... especially now that I know a bit better where my cervix sits, I imagine I'll have more luck with it.

The girly-girl in me is happy to see that site you sent me also has the pink edition for cheaper as well. Thanks again.

Did you have any issues with your Si-Bell popping open? I know some people have complaints about that.

Re: Thank you
Never. I have also never heard of anyone here having issues with it not popping open. Did you read this here and I missed it, or did that statement refer to soft cups in general?

The Si-bell has 4 vertical indentations that aid it to pop open. It's a genius design.

Re: Thank you
Yeah, my comment about the difficulty popping open was something I had heard of soft cups in general. I know one friend of mine said the Si-Bell did take longer to open sometimes so she got a different one. Maybe it was more of a technique issue?

It's good to know it's not a common issue! I will be ordering my Si-Bell within the week :) Thanks for all the help
