Hi everyone! I'm fairly new to the world of menstrual cups, only discovered them about six months ago and bought a Diva size 1 that I've used for about three cycles. I'm 24 years old, no children, not a virgin. I'm assuming I have a high cervix because I have never been able to feel it even while on my period and when I have the Diva size 1 in the entire stem is inside of me, sometimes it takes some bearing down to even reach the stem but other times I can feel the stem in an uncomfortable position (not pain, just annoying). I think been pretty successful with my Diva cup for only using it for a few months. I still get residual slobber and leak maybe one day out of my cycle but I wouldn't consider it a major leak. I'm at the point that I can feel if the position/seal isn't perfect so I know if it is going to leak. I always thought I had a heavier flow but I fill the Diva size 1 a little over half-way every 9-12 hours. I'm in nursing school right now so some days I'm away from my house for 12-13 hours so I would like a fairly high capacity cup. I'm interested in getting a second cup and was considering trying another brand. I've looked at the size comparison charts (a few times!) but I feel completely overwhelmed trying to decide on a second cup because there is so much to take into consideration! Ones I've looked into are the Lunette, Si-Bell, and MeLuna. If anyone has any suggestions that would be great! Also, I apologize if this is a repetitive post. I've read a lot of older posts and tried searching the different tags but couldn't quite find what I was looking for.

Thank you for all of the suggestions! I'm thinking I am going to go with the Si-Bell. I've seen you post about it on a few others that posts that have a high cervix and was already considering it. I was thinking of trying a softer cup this go around because I do get pretty bad cramps the first few days of my cycle, so it looks like the Si-Bell is the winner! Do you have a suggestion on the small vs. large? I know the websites usually say smaller is for under 30 years old with no children, which I fall under, but if you've had personal experience with either or both that would be great! I've looked at the comparison charts/pictures and it looks like the Diva is between the two Si-Bells in size so I don't know if I should go with bigger or smaller.

I might have to order a Chinese Rainbow too for a backup just because to the price!

I am childless with good PC muscles (but not freakish PC muscles as you might see in a yogi, gymnast, equestrian etc) and I have been able to wear both sizes. I just got a Large fairly recently to deal with an increase in flow, and this month it seemed a little slower to pop open than usual, which could mean that my cervix was just a little lower or I was generally tighter..normally I don't have trouble popping it open though, and the Small was always effortless to pop open. So choose based on the capacity you need :)

Just ordered the large (pink :D) Si-Bell because of the capacity. Not sure how long it will take to get here, I'm in the US and ordered from FW but I'm excited to try it out! Thanks again for all the suggestions!
