I have used a menstrual cup for 5 years now. I started with a lunette then I went to a fleurcup and now I use a sibell. The sibell is the softest cup I have. When I first started using cups I didn't have this problem. Now I can barely pee when I have the cup in. It also makes me feel like I have to pee all the time. I know that there are softer cups now but I'm not sure which ones. I do have a low cervix so I need a shorter cup but I need a high capacity. The ones I have are larges. Is there one out there that is short, soft and has a high capacity? I've been looking at the softcups. I don't like the idea of using a different one every cycle but I also don't think I should continue using the ones I am. I feel like they would leak more than a regular menstrual cup. Am I wrong? Thanks for any advice!

If you are curious about Softcups then buy a box and try them. They are individually wrapped so it's easy to share them with curious friends or re-sell them or donate them to a women's shelter if you don't like them. I think they are available in sample packs. And they occasionally come up for sale at mc_sales -- either as an opened box missing one or two, or in small quantities for those who are curious.

Despite what the instructions say, you can wash and re-use Insteads as many times as you trust them -- whether one cycle or many. I find it easiest to alternate two... remove one, insert the other and then wash the first for next time. For me, they worked better on light days than heavy.

There are size and capacity charts at the Community FAQ. There is another set at http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ and there are also some links to softness charts, though off the top of my head, I think your SiBell ranks as one of the softest.
