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?
Well, the mini med meluna is MUCH shorter than the diva (from what I've read). You have lots of choices between them that still preserve capacity. Check the size charts. I do still love my sckoon, but others probably would also work for you.

But if you want the meluna, I'm pretty sure they ship everywhere if it's for personal use. I think the warning you're reading is about importing for sales. At least that's what it refers to in the US. And I read that there's a new meluna-US. They might ship to Canada, but don't have the colored cups.

Edited to add: oops, I just responded to your comment and didn't check for other responses first. Sorry for the repetition. But, I still think you can get a cup that works now and don't have to wait for your muscle tone to improve. Try a shorter, wider cup while you kegel and let us know how it goes. I had the same slipping issue with the diva at first, moved to my fleur/sckoon cups and now the diva is fine. I think using cups helps with tone too.
