I am a relatively new cup user. I have been happy with my current cup but am pretty sure there is something better out there for me! I currently use a large Menstrocup.

I am 46 with children. My flow is normal/heavy, and my cervix is high with a tendency to sit to the side during my period. I am able to insert the cup and get it open with no problem (usually) but find that it leaks on my heavier days. I'm wondering if a firmer cup with a larger diameter would work better? I think upon research that the menstrocup is on the softer side. I also feel like that at times my cervix wants to sit to the outside of the cup. On the leaky days, the cup is not overfull.

Any suggestions? I have been researching the super jennie, meluna classic xl, and yuuki.

Is your cup leaking on your heavy days because it's filling up faster? Many of us have to empty more often on our heavy days.

Hello! I'd recommend the LuvUrBody cup as it is one of the longest and highest capacity cups out there (to my knowledge anyway!) and I got it precisely for those two reasons. It's really great, I've only used it for a few cycles though, but it's working well and have found it much easier to get the hang of than the Mooncup (UK version). I do believe that it's not the firmest of cups but I don't think it's all too soft either.

Just another cup for you to consider and read about!

Menstrocup? I'm not familiar with that brand. Compare the cup that you have to the others that interest you using http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ or any of the other charts found online. Only you know how you think they would fit you. And as I tell everyone else: Don't buy a cup because it fits someone else. They are not going to wear your cup. ;o)
