So I received my Yukki cups (large and small) "THE ROCK". And put in the large Yukki and I can't even feel it! (geez do I have a monstrous vagina?). That's not my main question, my main question is: I now have a collection of cups and need to decide which ones to get rid of throughout the months (stay tuned in menstrual cup sales). Besides the down side of getting it in and out (if you let go of it too soon before it's in, ouch! and taking it out, it's hard to pinch the base of the cup), I thought the biggest down side of a firm cup would be comfort. But I figured the biggest advantage is, it's sure to open and I would think it would fit the best no matter your shape, it's so firm I figure it is sure to create a nice O around the inside of your vagina. Right? Oh, and it seems it's the only one I've been able to do that elusive "spin" maneuver on. So if one can not even feel it, wouldn't firmer be better?

Stiff or squishy, it's personal preference -- like chocolate or vanilla ice cream. Some like both. You don't have to get rid of cups. It's OK to have a collection. Think of it like clothes or shoes. You have your favorites that you wear often. And then you have ones for special occasions.

As for the "spin," you don't have to. Other helpful hints at http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/

haha, but the darn things are expensive! I want some of my money back!

I'd recommend waiting at least a full cycle before making sales decisions. My second cup was a MeLuna XL sport -- I got it for similar reasons to your Yuuki purchase. The first day or two went fine; couldn't feel a thing when wearing it. Unfortunately, by the time my cycle was over, I was really sore due to chafing from insertion/removal. I stuck with it another cycle in case I could somehow make it work, but it was not to be. Now, obviously that's not everyone's experience and it was a different brand, but what works well for a few days may not be a forever solution.

I've actually had less spotting with the [very soft] Super Jennie than the MeLuna Sport but since I also have more practice I can't really draw meaningful conclusions -- except that a great seal is certainly possible with a soft cup too.

Oh I agree, but definitely getting rid of the diva, that thing is way too short and gets practically lost up in me. Any cup I can not reach is an automatic no go. My sister has the same problem with the Diva (thanks for the genetics mom). The other ones I will try for a few cycles to get a really good idea.

Cons: more suction on removal for high cervixes, limited variation of folds, may affect those with sensitive bladder, doesnt adapt as well to body (naturally some are more oval than round).

Apart from above, there are stem, grip ring and hole size/placement/quantity questions to ask as well when choosing a cup, super personal and sometimes trial and error. You may find with practice a softer cup with a 7-fold or labia fold may work just as well and not fiddly.

Im pleased the Yukki works well for you :)

The spin maneuver is not necessary and I'm not sure why cup companies keep propagating the myth that it is.

And I think most of us have a variety of cups! I need to have them on the extremely soft end of things due to a narrow entrance and a "twisty" vagina. Even something like the Meluna Classic pretty much cut off my urethra and I couldn't urinate while wearing it. My vagina sits very far forward, though. Some have also found that firm cups tend to get dislodged easily. But someone with rock hard PC muscles may find that soft cups get too squished inside them.
