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..

As someone with a super high cervix, it's totally normal. Until I went on birth control I couldn't reach my cervix at all at any point in my cycle. I agree with others that a longer cup would be your best bet. As for types of cups, I generally don't like the Diva Cup, even though it is quite long, it's a bit too hard for me so I can never really get fully comfortable. I think the Lily Cup might be a better bet for a first time user, it's longer, a bit softer than most, and has smoother silicone.

Yup, awhile back on this site (I believe) someone mentioned that younger, nulliparous girls are more likely to have a high cervix (virginity doesn't matter), which could just mean there is a lesser amount of hormone circulating? I also remember a dude who was transgender and taking hormones to transition female to male and he said at some point in taking the hormones his cervix just parked super high and stopped moving around. So I'm assuming by that point there was little to no real estrogen circulating, which is why I think less hormones = higher cervix. Makes sense because I am a little bit gifted in the androgen department myself--explains all my bull-headed, high-cervixed fabulousness ;)
