I have posted a couple times before. I seem to be having a hard time finding the right cup. so far I have a sckoon & lily cup compact. I have been using them for 1 -1 2 yrs now. There are different things I like and don't like about both of them but I want something I like all the time. :)

I have titled uterus, I know I have read that doesn't matter but I think it does. I have a low cervix at the beginning of my cycle and a avg to high form the middle to the end.

I have determined I am very sensitive on the outer open of my vagina and I just can't handle any grip marks rubbing that area.

The sckoon is to low in the beginning and too hard to get out near the end.

The lily cup compact is better but the end of it, I guess the stem part rubs me. It also seems harder to keep clean.

So I am thinking I need a cup that isn't too long but is fairly easy to grip and doesn't have a lot of pronounced ridges or markings on the outside or on the stem.

Both the cups I have are the larger size and I also think I need to switch to the smaller sizes despite my age and having had 2 children.

I am thinking a small ladycup or maybe just going a whole different direction with a small femmycycle, it is so different I am thinking it would work. I would love something I could sleep in, I find both the other cups to uncomfortable when I am lying down and moving around a lot. Thoughts?

I have not read about too many people that find the outer markings uncomfortable. If you have this issue do you have any recommendations?

Thanks I know this is kind of long.

If you haven't already, use any of the size charts to compare actual dimensions of cups that you're interested in to the ones that you already have. Also consider capacity and shape of the ones that interest you.

One of MANY sets of size charts found online:

Have you tried cutting the stem of the lily compact? I have that one too and I agree that the stem is poky but cutting it helped me. Or using sand paper to rub off the grip lines of the sckoon? Modifying your cups might be better than getting a new one.

You have two very different cups, maybe thinking more specifically about your likes and dislikes of each will help you if you're committed to a new one. I find the sckoon very soft and its bell shaped. The lily is aggressively v shaped and the rim is much firmer and really forms a tighter seal for me. What do you like about each? Then you can choose better. Offhand I would say the sibell is a soft bell shaped cup with no grip rings, but the lily is pretty unique so I'm not sure where you should go if you like that one better.

My first thought was the Si-Bell, but you may not need all that stem (I can't think of how long the Lily Compact is when unfolded offhand). It doesn't have grip rings and the stem is so thin that it feels like a tampon string, so it may not bother you to be hanging out of you on your low days.
