Hello!

22, never had kids, quite a high cervix, like mid cycle I cant even reach it so its over 3" high, when I am actually bleeding it drops down some but its still the full length of my longest finger up there.

I have had my meluna classic size medium for about 9 months now and have used it off and on. I love love love the fact that I can just insert it and forget about it for a while but from day one I have always had a problem with it leaking, not much, but then again I dont have a heavy flow, but its still enough to be annoying.
Im wondering if either its not firm enough, it always comes out squished in an oval, although I have soaked it in ice water before inserting it and that didnt help at all.
or if Im just still not getting it up and around my cervix. I always stick my finger up there and try and go all the way around and make sure its open, and that its on my cervix but it NEVER FAILS.

Thinking I either need a firmer cup or a longer cup or I dont really know, which is why Im asking you lovely ladies.

Please help

What kind of leaking is it? Residual slobber? Overflowing? Definitions at the end of http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/

Do you think you'd want a higher capacity cup? For all days or just your heavy ones? How do you like the length of your Meluna? How much longer do you think you can go comfortably? How about the width? Do you think a wider cup would fit/suit you better? Use those observations to compare your cup to others using the size charts that links to or any that you like better.

There are now more than 30 brands to choose from plus a wide variety of knock-offs and generics.

I know I don't need a higher capacity, I'm on the pill and I really don't bleed that much at all.
It could be the width I really have no idea.
I tried to put it in last night and I just could not get it to open up all the way. Even pulling it down and pushing it back up and running my finger along the side.
I just want it to work!

Melunas are very short, I never stopped my leaking problem till I got a long cup (LUB medium) that took care of even residual slobber! A rounded bottomed cup helped for me as any poiny cup like lunette or mooncup or even the lily cup just didnt work leak-free. The fleur came close but due to length it just never stopped leaking. Maybe high cervixes need length to stabilise it a bit? That and you should direct the cup towards the cervix which could be at an angle.

I've thought about the lily cup because it's longer and stronger but I'm not sure
