So, after a few months of consideration, I've decided to get a cup. The only problem is that I am a virgin with a very low cervix. Unless I'm not finding it right, no "reaching" is needed to get to it, so it is very low. I'm quite comfortable with my anatomy, so although i have never used tampons (i'm quite active and would hate changing it), I think I won't have that phase of "ew something inside of you.". So, what kind of cup would you reccomend? I'm thinking about the skooncup or the softcup, but whatever's best. It pretty much has to be:

For low cervixes
Good for swimming
No latex (I've got a sensitivity to it)

The blunt base cups seem to be good for those with a low cervix--I'm betting yours is dangly as well so your cervix will ultimately take up some space in the cup with the cup rim going up around and over it. So the blunt base will give you better capacity than a V-shaped cup will, and you'll be able to fit in a slightly longer cup as well.

The Meluna Shortys are popular for low cervixes but I think the capacity is also not great so you may try a Fleur, Sckoon or Si-Bell for the blunt base shape. (Stems are probably irrelevant since you shouldn't need them for removal)

For what it's worth I bet you haven't missed out by not trying tampons--those with low cervixes usually can't use them satisfactorily anyway. Great to cut to the chase and just get a cup!

So, turns out I'm buying it tomorrow from a store, so only a few options are available. Either a softcup, diva cup, gladrags (???), mooncup, or lunette. And yes, turns out I have a dangly cervix. So it's either tampons (I would rather not because shoving a piece of cotton up your lady bits does not sound comfortable) or one of those cups. Or not swimming, which is actually not an option. I'm thinking the softcup, because there's no stem and they look good for short cervixes.

For what its worth, the lunette is a lovely starter cup for virgins :) easy insertion and as you have a low cervix the removal (with added fold) would be good. Plus the punch down fold goes nice and small. It has good sized holes so you wouldnt have to punch them bigger and its a medium firmness so good for sports.
(I havent used softcups but I thought they worked better for higher cervixes as they hook behing your pelvic bone?)

Editted to include: if you are worried about the stem, you have it inside you, so whats left over on the outside can be trimmed/cut off. You wont see a thing :)

Thanks for the help, guys! I bought some tampons and softcups and the cups work AMAZING! I tried the tampon and it felt really dry and gross, so I jumped in a bath, took it out, and after a bit of messing with folds, I am a convert to cups! Thanks! :)
