I was reading the size charts guide and I *think* I have a low cervix because when I insert a finger I feel something squishy quite soon, but I can try to put a finger past it but it's awkward to reach any higher. Is that my cervix? I really don't know.

I'm confused since if I choose a short cup, won't my cervix fill it and leave no room for flow? If I choose a longer cup will it leak and be uncomfy? I started with Diva and had issues.

Currently I am using Lunette small. When I remove it after it leaks, I find it is half full but but then a big blob of blood spills out immediately following the cup, so that means the flow wasn't going into the cup after a certain point. So was my cervix filling the cup?

Gahh been trying to figure out how to use a cup for about 6 months now...still haven't got the hang of how to know where my cervix is and what length and width is right for me. any insight would be appreciated! Thank you all!

Since you already have a cup, don't use the finger method any more. How does your small Lunette fit you? Do you think you can go longer? Wider? Do you think you need a higher capacity? Do you like its shape? It's fairly V-shaped. Do you think you'd like a U-shaped better? Use what you know, like and don't about the cup you have to pick your next one. Or continue using the one you have and adjust how often you empty it if you find that you're overflowing it.

Hi there,
Thanks for your reply. I think I need something
-with larger capacity than the Lunette Model 1, for both flow (really heavy on the first couple days) and my cervix which seems to take up some room
-not much longer than the lunette
-slightly firmer or same resistance as Lunette 1 (sometimes it doesn't pop open immediately)
-can't be more expensive than Lunette

I'm not sure about shape, but I guess given the criteria above I'd need something wider if it's higher volume but not much longer.

Any suggestions are appreciated :)
