I have been using the Ladycup for a few cycles now and its great!! I do have issues with heaviness though vitamin E has helped a lot. But for 1-2 days each cycle, I have to empty the cup every hour sometimes. Its not the most comfortable thing to do, to say the least lol but better than going broke with pads. My question is.. can constantly putting it in and out cause any damage or stretching? I have had 1 child so I think its comparably not a worry haha but I did notice a bruised feeling sometimes. I don't really want a bigger cup because this one is already a bit long.

Frequent emptying shouldn't cause a problem, but the Lady has comparatively pathetic capacity due to the low hole placement--you should probably think about a better-capacity cup of the same length. I don't know the dimensions offhand but you might like the large Fleur?

Have you tried tranexamic acid? My dr prescribed it for me for heavy flow and if I take it along with ibuprofen I only need to empty my fleurcup (large) 3 times a day

No. Pregnancy did WAAAAAAY more of that than cup usage can/will.

If you are concerned about your vaginal muscles becoming weakened, there is a paragraph about pelvic floor strength at the end of http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/ Then Goggle and/or talk to your Gyno about Kegel exercises and other ways to keep your vagina in good shape.

In my experience, getting the right length, removing the stem, and having a smooth bottom (sometimes that just means flipping a cup inside out) make for the most comfortable removal. Stems just tends to get in the way and hurt my pubic bone on the way out, that's just me, though.
