First of all, yes I know I posted quite recently but after a few days, other posts bring my older one down ( does that make sense? ) and no one else replies so anyways, I hope y'all don't mind! Anyways, from my last post, someone suggested sea sponge tampons and the Meluna shorty ( which both seem great for my very low cervix which is about a fingernail length in or 1cm, don't ask xD ) but they both seem to have to have very low capacity in order for them to fit. The Meluna could probably only last at most a couple hours on my heaviest day ( which sucks ) and sea sponge tampons would probably have to be trimmed really small ( am I right about that or is there some trick? ). Anyways, I was wondering if I could still use sea sponge tampons without having a small size and a teeny capacity like the Meluna Shorty ( I'm planning to buy the small or medium ). I know for one thing that my cervix is really this low ( read my other post pour favor ) so please don't suggest otherwise. And one more thing, I live in Canada so I have no idea which stores I can get a sea sponge tampon ( any particular art store? ) since when I check online, all I get are US websites ( with what I need but can't get ) and the Canadian websites that claim to have no sponges. I have no idea what and where to buy these sponges so if anyone could lend a hand, that would be greatly appreciated. Also, someone in my last post suggested I couldn't use any internal menstrual protection, is that true? I think that wraps up my questions and concerns for now. Thanks! I hope this will help anyone else in my place too.

xD. Softcups! Someone posted saying it won't work with a low cervix, true? I doubt a diva will fit well, but I want to get a "feel for it" so I just want to try it out xD. I like softcups but they can leak, have low capacity but are available in stores nearby! Honestly I'm torn between what to use... Blah! Have you tried Softcups? Thanks for the link!

The one I linked isn't a Softcup, but I did try one once. I only wore it for one night and it seemed to work, but when folded for insertion it would be like 3" in diameter. Even though it hooks behind the cervix supposedly, that would be VERY long for someone with a lowish cervix. Mine is quite high and it still barely fit (I tried this one before I went to reusable cups though.) I stole it from a friend (ssshhhh)...apparently she really likes them.

Lol sorry. I got carried away when I read the link xD. Anyways, by clicking on the actual link, I'm wondering if it's generic. It looks like a great size but I haven't heard of it so I'll check it out and do some more research since I haven't heard of that brand nor know much about it ( duh ). Meh, that idea for the online buying from a friend could work but isn't that kinda weird xDD? But thinking about it, it could work. Thanks!

Edited to add: Well, it seems to be sized just like the Mini Meluna S ( 40mm x 40mm ). It seems to be decent silicone ( or whatever material they actually used ) and the capacity should be somewhat greater than the Meluna shorty S. I'm quite happy it has suction release holes too! So thanks for that helpful link! Anyways, on a completely unrelated side note, what do you think about the Meluna shorty M? It is a bit larger than the linked one but I wonder if it could work with my very low cervix.

I don't have any personal experience with any of the Shortys--I tried 2 Meluna Classics when I first got into cups and that was a SERIOUS mistake since my cervix is actually very high! But they may be great for you!

With such a low cervix, it might be dangly in addition. Have you checked?
Then I could imagine that the shorty M or L might be an option.

Just don't buy the diva. That is too much money for something you probably won't be able to get in.

It's not dangly. I want to try a diva cup so I know which shorty will work diameter wise. Although I think the large shorty is too long. What do you think?

The Shorty S and M are both narrow and I doubt that any of them is too wide for you. I really can't say if they will fit in length, though. I don't think you will learn anything from buying a diva. A cup that sticks out is uncomfortable.

Ok. I'll wait for an opportunity to buy the Meluna Shorty M since the small is not that much smaller and the large isn't really any smaller than the small Meluna ( which is probably too long ). Thanks for the advise.
