hopefully im making this right! ive never posted on livejournal before (i made an account just for this) but i bought a small ruby cup a few months ago, ive been using it for maybe 2 or 3 months now and no matter what i do it doesnt seem to catch everything. i am SURE it is sealed completely, every time i check its opened completely and every time i remove it i need to break the seal. it does catch most of my blood but sometimes (usually) ill get spotting when i wipe and it will be outside the cup.

another issue ive been having is that it always feels like i have to pee. i already pee a lot as it is (i think i have a small bladder) but it seems to be putting pressure on my bladder and i even have had to remove it completely in order to pee once.

also, no matter how deep i insert it it always seems to end up very close to the entrance of my vagina. i have completely removed the stem because of this and tried inserting it multiple different ways. i usually use the 7 fold. if anyone has any advice for any of these issues i would be so grateful. i really want cups to work for me.

I had the pressure issue starting out...also with a Ruby. It may or may not be because the cup is firm. Since you haven't been using a cup for long, this could be something you'll get used to eventually. I did! But whether or not you need to try a different cup is your call.

If you have a low cervix, a narrower cup will often sit farther down because it can't sit up around your cervix. The rim could also simply be settling into the part of your vagina it's the right width for. If you want a cup that sits higher, you should look for something with a larger diameter than your Ruby, which is 40mm.

how long did it take you to get used to it? also it sitting so low doesnt necessarily bother me, honestly. sometimes i just get worried its too low or that im doing something wrong with it i guess!
