I have been trying out my meluna small mini(soft) for two cycles and have done many dry run but every time I get it in it slips out does that mean its to small on the rim or what? I need the small legnth though.

Are you following the directions to put it in down low? DON'T! They tell you to put it in TOO low.

Go to the Community FAQ and read both the Myths and the Commonly Asked Questions. Also go to the insertion tab and read replies there.

I was trying to put it in further but it really wasn't going anywhere because of my low cervix. Should I try a different cup/shape?

The small Mini Meluna is the shortest cup made. If that cup is still too long for you then no. There are comparative size charts at the Community FAQ.

If by slipping out you mean that the cup is practically falling out. If you mean that you can insert it comfortably and then it sort of dislodges. If you can wear the mini comfortably for a period of time and then it spontaneously loses suction and drops down then it would be in your best interest to find a larger cup. Usually a menstrual cup will leak excessively, lose suction, spontaneously dislodge and fall out when it is too small. If you have a really low cervix and capacity is not an issue then you may find the soft meluna mini medium fits better.

Excuse my previous use of "suction". I meant to use the term "seal".

Are you sure it was hitting your cervix? Il is the smallest cup. You may be coming up against your pubic bone and mistaking that for your cervix. Were you ever able to use tampons? The vaginal entrance has folds and a bit of a curve to it, then it goes smooth. Whether or not the title applies to you, the "virgin's guide to cups" may have more pointers for you.
