Hi guys! im very confused if i should get a meluna cup or not. i have a low cervix of around 4 cm, and i guess my pelvic muscles are pretty strong(?), cuz the suction seal keeps breaking in my current cup. Everyone says that meluna cups are very hard to open inside, and they lose their firmness very quickly. Should i get it? or should i get the sports edition? i'm fairly new to the menstrual cup experience(this is my 2nd cycle to use cups), so im also not very sure about the size. What size meluna would be good? and what folds works best with meluna cups? really want some suggestions

No, don't buy another cup yet. Get more familiar with the cup that you already have. Compare it to others that might interest you in the future using any of the MANY size and capacity charts found online. You might decide that you already have the perfect cup. Or you might want something completely different -- for example, cup for light days and another for heavy days.

Yeah I'm still getting used to my current cup. The problem is it's length is too big (6 cms) for me, and it's too soft(?) cuz the suction seal breaks very quickly,, so it leaks and I'm still stuck with pads for safety :'((

The charts that it points to are out of date but there are MANY others online.

i'm one of those who do need a meluna shorty but my cervix is like 1-2cm in if even that. (it's dangly)
4cm is actually close to medium cervix. which cup do you have?

good luck!
melunas are so low capacity that you should probably get an L or XL shorty.

i would suggest looking into the juju cup model 4 :) it's firm low cervix cup that's really easy to get open. the only thing is that it will probably be a teeny bit wider at the rim than your current cup if you're using a standard small v/bell shaped one. it's a pretty high capacity cup though, if that's something that you would be interested in
