Hi all,
I'm pretty new to menstral cups, on my 2nd cycle, using a juju2. I'm 36, no kids & haven't been sexually active for a bit.
I decided to get a #2 because I'm over 30 & have a very heavy flow.
I'm honestly just not sure if my cup is too wide.
I seem to have a super long & narrow vagina (I can't even reach the stem of my cup without sitting & seriously bearing down & I most definitely can't get a finger up beside the cup) so I really don't think I couldnt go down to the #1, due to flow & vagina length, but I feel concerned that it's too wide & maybe too hard.
I can definitely feel pressure, it's not necessarily painful & it wouldn't stop me using it.
I'm worried that it might cause damage?
I know our vaginas are super elastic but I'm just having a tiny freak out that I'm getting super stretched or causing bladder or bowel issues somehow.
Can anyone impart any knowledge on this? I'm I totally irrational?

A menstrual cup would not cause any damage to a healthy vagina. If you haven't noticed any other symptoms, I wouldn't worry about it. Perhaps you should look into buying a smaller cup if this one is too uncomfortable? But as to whether it could cause damage, vaginas are designed to stretch far enough to push out a baby. A menstrual cup is nothing compared to that!! ^^ Good luck and I hope you find a solution that works for you!

Yes, don't worry! Everything will be fine. I'm not sure on the dimensions of the JuJu but the Diva cup is one of the longer cups out there so if you can't live with the issues this one causes a longer cup might at least be easier to reach.

FWIW I'm 38, 3 kids and usually need a small. If you feel you're long and narrow a narrower longer cup might alleviate some of the problems you're having too.
