So far I've only used Instead soft cups (part way through one cycle and for the entirely of the cycle afterwards). The first time was awesome! I wish I'd made the switch sooner and started researching longterm cups. The second time....what an ordeal. My first two days (of 4) are a little heavier (esp the first few cycles postpartum) and it seemed like I was constantly leaking & refitting- even had to switch back to tampons for better security. So far I've seen so much information it seems impossible to make a "best guess" and am really hoping for some experienced guidance.
Does anyone have suggestions on where to start as far as deciding on rim/length/capacity/firmness?
Here's about me:
Age 25, 2 births, 3 months postpartum, high cervix sometimes drops a little during menses (stays between med-high), just fit for a 75 diaphragm. I've had some concern of rectocele which is where my concern about firmness comes in, but my OB/G couldn't identify an issues. Chasing after a toddler, trying to get fit again, and soon going back to work on my feet I'm decently active and want a snug fit without unnecessarily stressing those muscles.
Wow, that sounds a lot picker than I expected... thank for any tips on choosing!
