So I have have had 2 kids (in my forties!). Average cervical height I think.

I am trying my Diva cup 2 for the first time as a "dry run". I noticed that I could feel the stem and so now trying it inside out. I can still "feel" the bottom of it. Am I just not putting it in far enough? I put it in right side out yesterday and after a walk it started coming out! Do I just have weak pelvic floor muscles? I could also start to pull it out without breaking the "seal". I will keep trying but also hoping I don't have to get a different model. Was hoping this was going to be the answer to all my tampon issues. Never felt right after kids. Heard so many good things about these cups!

Re: Shorter cup?
You're probably not going to like my answer but a new, different, shorter cup might not help until you strengthen your PCs. Go ahead and try with whatever cups call to you -- but they won't necessarily succeed until your muscles are strong enough to hold them in.

If you don't like the Kegel advice I offered last month then Google is your friend for other methods. Or consult a professional. A Gyno, Urologist or combination of the two will probably have the best advice and methods for you in terms of exercises to get your vag back in shape.

Re: Shorter cup?
I do appreciate the advice! You make a good point. I have been doing Kegels but with out the help of any "tools". Just a realization that I'm not a spring chicken anymore and this is not as easy as just learning to insert a cup;)
