Hi girls! I'm new to this community and I thought maybe some of you could help me choose a new cup. My first cup was a Yuuki small, tried both the soft and classic versions. Only problem with these cups is that on my 2 heaviest days they leak a lot! I figured out that my cervix is kinda low so it sits inside the cup, and the cup has a small capacity, so it leaks.

I'm about to buy a new cup with more capacity, but I can't decide between two:

Option 1: large meluna classic
This cup seems to have better capacity but it's not significantly bigger than my yuuki (which is nice) , only few millimeters. MY ONLY CONCERN: I read somewhere that the TPE material makes it hard to pop it open, and I have strong pelvic muscles, I don't wanna have to play around with the cup once it's inside of me.

Option 2: lifecup large
This cup is only sold in South America, but is made by the same company as the "casco cup" and is very similar in shape. You can check it out here: www.lifecup.co This one is silicone so it should open easier
MY CONCERN: this one is quite a long cup and the rim is bigger in diameter than the meluna and the yuuki, I'm worried that I won't be able to use it comfortably (I'm young AND a virgin) plus the low cervix issue.

These are my options cause at the moment they are the best cups/ most reasonably priced ones I have accesss to.
Soooooo which one should I get?

Thanks a lot in advance :)

I would recommend bell-shaped cups that are wider at the base instead. As for the height, check how long your vaginal canal is, as opposed to the level of where your cervix reaches, since that part sits in the cup anyway. I find mine also changes throughout the cycle. Larger diameter should not be an issue, except it might press on your bladder a bit? I'm also a virgin and I can easily use a 47mm diameter cup.

PS: since not everyone here is a woman, it is appreciated if you use gender-neutral phrases when addressing the community :)

Thanks so much for your advice! I think I will go with the meluna then, as it is more bell shaped than the other option :) I would choose a more bell shaped one but currently these are the only good options in my country.
And I will follow your advice to check my vag length instead of my cervix length.
Ohh thanks for pointing out the gender issue I didn't think about it when posting, I'll keep it in mind for next time!

Thanks a lot!
