I could use some help buying a new cup. I am a new user and have been using a Lunette size 1 for several months now. For the most part its ok, but it does cause cramping after a few hours. I don't get cramps so I know its the cup causing it. I need to take it out by the end of the day because it's uncomfortable. I am sure that its inserted correctly because there is no leaking and I can feel that it's open. I think the rim is also bothering me a bit. Its pretty firm and I had some trouble inserting it when I first started using it.
I was reading that getting a wider cup can help with cramping. For most that's the larger size which I wasn't even looking at before because I'm petite and haven't given birth but I am willing to try it if it helps.
Some other background — I'm 29, active (exercise daily), and I think I have a high cervix since I can't find it.
I was looking at the Lena (large) and the Hello cup (not sure what size) because they have less of a rim. I was wondering if anyone tried the Mermaid cup? It seems like it might be good size-wise for me but I think its newer because I haven't been able to find any reviews. I was also trying to figure out if a less firm cup would help at all. I'm a little worried about not being able to open it though since I'm new to this.
Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!
