I've been using the small diva cup for the last few months with limited success, I think because the cup is too long for me. I can always feel its presence towards the opening and it slides downwards. I've pretty much decided to buy the meluna medium, but I can't decide between sport and classic. I am relatively active, but not with horseback riding or pole dancing or any of the other stuff they list on their website. And I haven't always been super active, so I'm not sure how strong my PC muscles really are. The one thing that leads me to believe I need the sport is that the seal on my diva always breaks and is pushed downward when I am exercising, so I think my PC muscles might be too strong when I'm actively working out. I tried going for a run with my diva in and it practically fell out.
I need to get one pretty soon because my period is coming up in 2 weeks and I'm scheduled to be doing a ridiculously hard workout on my fitness plan AND I'm running a 5k the next day. It sounds sucky enough as it is, I really want to be confident that I'm not going to deal with any leakage.
By the way, I'm 18 and a virgin with a medium-ish I think cervix? I can reach it relatively easily but its not right by the opening or anything.

Does Meluna still run the two-fer deal on their website? Or Luxurymoon/femininewear? Wherever I got mine (which ended up being a fail because my cervix is way too high for Melunas) I was able to get the 2-cup bundle, and it might be possible to mix Classic and Sport in that bundle so you could try both and see which you prefer. There are also secondhands that pop up pretty often on the mc_sales comm so you could try both if the prices are right.

The length difference between the 57mm Diva and the 48mm MeLuna is quite a jump. Did you choose the size because it's called "Medium?" Because looking at the size charts at http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ there are far more intermediate steps between.

Have you tried flipping your Diva inside out to shorten it? It's perfectly OK to wear it that way if it works better for you.

I second trying both.

Also there is a Feminine wear forum on fb which has a file of second hand cups on sale which you might consider.

Lately, I have been using the classic Melunas mini S when i go running, but it sounds like you may actually need a sport.

They do have deal on sport AND classic double-packs for EURO 22 plus shipping, and you can pick your stem type and sizes, including shorty sizes. If you live outside the EU, they will deduct the 19% sales tax that is included in the EURO 22 during check-out.


As Kurandi said, check the size charts, and since you mentioned that you pushed the Diva out, also pay attention to the diameter. I know for myself, I need super short and narrow. You may need short and wide?

Good luck.
