Hi, I'm a new user of menstrual cups, I tried using a lunette cup 2 for one cycle. -Almost 30, never gave birth.
I only realized later on that my cervix is really low, (probably about 2cm in) so I think I've been shoving my lunette up my cervix!
My paranoia is hitting now, do you think that could have done some damage?

I usually have quite a heavy flow on the first two or three days, so it would be nice to have a big capacity, but I have a small frame.
I'd like to give menstrual cups a further try and am now looking at shorty types, but hoping my anatomy is suited for the next one. Your advices and thoughts would really help!

Thank you.

It can't go up your cervix, the opening is very small. It could go behind your cervix if it is low/dangly... but then you would notice significant leaking, because you flow would be missing the cup and leaking down the side and out. If it is working in terms of containing your flow, then you should be good :)

Your cup won't fit up your cervix. Even when you're having your period it's only a little bit open. It may be fitting around your cervix, which won't necessarily do any damage but which is likely to be uncomfortable. Check the links on the side for recommendations for use with a low cervix, which you might find more physically and psychologically comfortable.

Thank you!
I apologize for the terribly ignorant question!
I panicked and thought maybe when somehow my cervix is so low yet my cup keeps disappearing up far especially during the night.

If your cup keeps creeping up, then your vag isn't as short as you think. Skim/Read http://kuradi8.livejournal.com/ to help you troubleshoot your issues.

Your overall frame size has nothing to do with the size of cup that will be comfortable. There are probably 5'2 and 90-pound virgins in this group who like to use size L cups because they have high capacity needs (I don't recall any members in particular, just throwing that out there). The fact that I am both extremely long-waisted and have an extremely high cervix is just a coincidence. I'm not particularly "wide" and my weight is only slightly above where it should be but I need large cups for capacity reasons.
