Hello All!

Over a year ago I came to this site and was able to do a lot of research on first time use and which cup to go with. I ended up going with the keeper and honestly, only used it once. For the past year I have been using my birth control constantly to prevent periods. I figured this probably isn’t the best thing so I am going to go back to having my periods every 3 months…. Maybe once a month. I can’t even begin to describe how much I HATE getting a period.
So I am back to square one on trying to find a cup that will work for me. It took me forever to figure out the keeper and as I discovered it is one of the stiffest cups out there. Which explains why I always felt like a stuffed pig when I used it. I am looking for a few features and was hoping you all would be able to help! I imagine things have changed in the past year or so.

1). Would like it to be silicone
2). Less stiff – The keeper was incredibly difficult to fold – But I don’t want something so flimsy it won’t pop back open. I am still a newbie
3). Shorter stem. I know I can trim them but I’d rather not. This isn’t a deal breaker though.

Looking forward to all the input!

The good news is most cups are less stiff than the keeper :) if you can find out where your cervix is it'll be easier to find the right length of cup and stem, most cups are made of silicone now and they will usually state it early on in their websites so happy trolling! Some recommend lunette, yuuki or fleur cups as good starter cups, or the softer sibell but you may have to trim the stem. I love my squishy yet poppy sckoon which is only 7cm long with a tail that tucks itself away so won't have to trim it.
