I am a new user of the cup, so I decided on the Sckoon 2 since I am 32 and have had 2 kids. I pushed it up as far as it would go and the stem hung out and was very irritating. So I cut it off. As I walk around, do chores, pick up my baby, the cup slides down to the point the grippers irritate the vaginal opening. I called the company for suggestions and they sent me the size 1. The same thing happens with it. I will place it high initially, but it will move down and the grips irritate the opening. If I use a mirror, I can see the base of it right there. Do I need a wider one, shorter one, different shape? So confused. Please help!

It sounds like you have some (very common) childbirth related prolapse and weak pelvic floor muscles. It's worth mentioning the prolapse to your Gyno next time you go. (No need to make a special appointment.) Bring your cup with you to demonstrate. And in the mean time, Google KEGEL exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor.

There's a paragraph about them at http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/

The large Luv Ur Body would have more grip to stay in place and room for any dangle and flow

I've had something similar happen, I think? I have a large Si-Bell even though I'm nulliparous (and a virgin for that matter). It gradually slides down even if I push it as far up as I can reach. It will slide down until the entire stem is sticking out almost like a short tampon string. What kind of works is, when I first feel it sliding down, 'grabbing' it with my pelvic floor muscles (or whatever muscle I don't know the name of) and basically moving it back up. Then it seems to stay in place. I don't know if that might help, or even if we are experiencing the same problem. But that would be my only suggestion. Good luck :)

I just got my lunette cup and I am having the same problem. I feel like my muscles are pushing it down as I go about my day. I'm 23, no kids.

Ahh the Sckoon grips are HORRIBLE. I wanted to like this cup but it's so uncomfortable to remove or insert or wear. I honestly can't understand how anyone finds it comfortable. It's like jagged teeth digging in all the time. I cut off all of the grip design, but it's still not a cup I like to use.
