Hello! I am new to this community, nice to meet you all :) I've been heavily interested in menstrual cups, and after much thought, I've decided to invest in one. Today (I am on my period), I tried to figure out the length of my vagina in order to decide the right cup for me. My middle finer, the longest finger, went all the way in without stopping. I don't know if I hit the cervix or not, but I'm assuming I didn't as my finger kept sliding in with no blockage.

This may be an obvious question, but does this mean that I have a long vagina, and that I should get a longer cup? I am 17 and a virgin, with medium flow! Thank you so much! Also, what are some good cups for beginners with my sizes/details? Is softer better, or stiffer better? Sorry for all the questions, and thank you so much!

EDIT: I've come to the conclusion that I may be missing the mark completely.. I cannot seem to find it at all..

If you're not sure, a "medium" length cup would probably be wiser than one from either end of the length spectrum. There are size charts at the Community FAQ and another set at http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ Also follow the link to the Answers to Commonly Asked Questions there.

Stiff and soft each have their pros and cons. Stiff often opens more easily and sometimes seals more securely. Some think that soft is more comfortable.

There is no such thing as a "beginner" cup. It either fits you well or it doesn't. They ALL have learning curves. And if the cup you choose has tiny anti-suction holes (they help with popping open and removal) they can always be enlarged.
