Hi, I’ve been using a keeper moon cup off and on for years but always gave up because of leakage. My cervix seems medium-high, I’m 40 and have had two kids. I put the cup in, no problems, can spin it, can’t feel my cervix on the side, and it almost always leaks right away. There’s often barely anything in the cup but occasionally I get it right and it all goes in there. So gratifying when it works but definitely not reliable. Sometimes it feels too low. I am overwhelmed with the number of cups and suggestions. Any ideas why I’m having such trouble or what different cup might be better? I know sometimes I’m missing my cervix but I don’t know how to get the cup to stay in a particular place. I have read Kuradi08’s FAQ and it was helpful but alas I’m still leaking all over.

If it feels too low, maybe a shorter cup will help. Maybe kegels will help too. Wide, medium-length, blunt-based cups seem to fit/suit Moms best. Something like a Fleurcup in size and shape. There are many, including generics and knock-offs. Compare dimensions and photos for shape.

If you're missing your cervix, try aiming your cup toward your belly button instead of your tailbone on insertion. If that doesn't work, try left. Try right. Remember where it's hiding. ;o)
