I have been using a large Sckoon for my last several cycles. I have gotten good at inserting it, popping it open and making sure it's places correctly. My issues are :

-I have a paraguard IUD and have an extremely heavy period for 2-4 days(heavy as in I soak an ob ultra tampon in less than 2 hours.) I have had to empty my Sckoon cup like every 2 hours or so as well, which is incredibly aggravating since I have two little kids at home.
- I guess I have a dangling cervix. I have noticed that the Sckoon will start to leak when it is only 3/4 way full which I attribute to the cervix issue.
- I don't think I like the bell shape of the Sckoon, it seems to press on bowel and bladder, and would like to try a more tapered shape like the fleur cup.
- I am 28 and I have had 2 babies vaginally.

Bottom line: I hate that I'm changing tampons and or emptying menstrual cups ever 1-3 hours for 3 days straight. I need a better solution because I have been resorting to both cup/tampon AND reusable pads. I love my paraguard and don't want it removed, there must be a better solution.

Right now I'm leaning toward trying the fleur cup. Any help at all is greatly appreciated.

can try Sibell
High capacity cup similar shape to sckoon will be sibell cup but more tappered round bottom. I think if sckoon is not comfortable by pressing the bladder and rectum the cup should go for soft cup. So Sibell is best option compare to fleur.I guess fleur is more firm than sibell as per review.
Sibell capacity is also good.

Luv Ur Body cup all the way :) that took me from large sckoon 3 hrs to medium LUB 6 hrs. A large would work wonders for you if you have the length for it (the large is shorter than the medium)

Thanks! I'm sorry are you recommending the medium or the large? I looked at their website and I'm not sure I understand the medium is longer and thinner while the large is shorter and fatter? Do those designs irritate?

Thats right, the large fat one. I have the medium as i have a high cervix, heavy flow, i didnt think i could do the large as i havent had children but if you want capacity then that is the highest in the market. Femininewear.co.uk gives an accurate idea of dimensions and capacity. If you dont like the flower design you can flip the cup inside out which is super nice :) works the same just stemless

actually the fleurcup is *more* rounded than the sckoon.
bowel/bladder pressure can also be caused by the rim shape.
if you can handle the length, luv ur body should be a great choice. you may also like the XL meluna soft.
