Hi. I'm new to menstrual cups and recently purchased as smaller size evacup. Almost everything is fine, I love it. Insertion goes well. My issue is that the rim hurts when I remove it. It's better if I stick my fingers up there and kind of c-fold it to make it smaller to remove, but then It spills. I've been looking at the lily cup because it looks like it folds small, the rim looks soft, and it has that spill proof rim. I'm not worried about the length because without the stem it should be just a few millimeters longer than my evacup with the stem, which doesn't bother me. Does this sound like a good troubleshoot?

clarification- It doesn't feel like there's a suction problem, but the popped open rim is to wide and stretches the entrance to my vagina untill it's painful.

Although I have a different cup (Diva Size 1) I understand about the rim issues while taking it out. But again I had the same issues with taking out tampons where it always felt uncomfortable to do so. I think a lot of it has to do with the position and angle of taking the cup out. I pretty much break the seal, take a deep breath, and pull it out.

If you do want to try a new cup here's a good comparison website. It even allows you to compare pictures of the different cups.

I had the same issue with my Ruby. I think the angle you're taking it out at makes a difference. If you can, try to remove it at an angle so only a portion of the rim comes out at once.

If cups are new for you, there's a learning curve no matter which you're using! You could go for the Lily, but be aware it won't neccessarily solve all your issues.
