I used the Sckoon cup my last menstural cycle. Love the concept but I couldn't get the thing to stay in. It felt like I had a good seal and then I would stand up and it would eventually gravitate down. The only way I can describe it is it was like I was giving birth to my menstrual cup and it was crowning. I know not the best way to describe it but that's what it was. I really want it to work but I am at a loss. I have had 4 vaginal births so I'm not sure if that plays a part. Advice would be great and I've searched a ton of journals and couldn't solve the issue.

You're exactly right. Tiny cup (even the large is the size of most brands' smalls) + 4 babies...and your PC muscles are probably not what they were before you had kids. Paging kuradi8, she always had good PC muscle exercise suggestions!

Would you suggest a different cup?

If your PC muscles are shot you will have the same problem with every cup sliding out, so you'll want to do a lot of Kegels, stuff with Ben Wa balls first to get everything back into shape. That said, the Sckoon is an itty bitty cup and you might be happier with the large Fleur (that one always seems to be popular with moms)

While the small sckoon is truly tiny, the large sckoon is more medium sized (similar to rubycup or femmecup which come in only one size).
From the sound of it, you might want to look for something wider: http://sizecharts.livejournal.com

I don't think the cup fits you poorly but I agree that your PC muscles are probably out of shape after 4 kids. There is a section about pelvic floor strength at the tail end of http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/ Skim through the other sections too to head off any other common questions. ;o)
