Hey, menstrual cuppers! It's a new year (sorta) and we've got new members! It's really nice to see the community acting as a fresh resource for new and existing cup users.

If I could just ask everyone to take a look at the rules, that would be excellent. That includes new and old members. I've been observing some slippage on related topics and gender-neutral language on the part of both new and old members. The main thing is to keep this a civil and welcoming place for all cup users, so thanks for helping with that!

I've been using a Diva Cup size 1 for quite some time. I have trimmed off the stem completely along with a tiny bit of the base (the cup is still intact). I really like the 'V' shape and the cup works for me most of the time. But, now I'm in search of a new cup.

The problem is that the Diva Cup is too long. On the first 2 days of my period, the cup just barely fits inside my vagina. When it starts to fill up, the cup starts to hang slightly out of my vagina. However, when my cervix rises at the end of my period, the cup fits okay and is comfortable to wear. My cervix fits very well in the cup and doesn't take up very much capacity, so I'm happy with that. It's also very easy to insert and remove. I have tried wearing the cup inside out, but it changes the shape so that it is flared at the rim and it's less comfortable.

I'm looking for another menstrual cup that's similar in shape and capacity to the Diva Cup, but is shorter. I've done some research and what looks closest is the Eva Cup. It's only 5mm shorter, which may work,but may not. Any suggestions or experiences are welcome. So, if you know of any other cups that are V-shaped like the Diva Cup, but shorter in length with similar proportions, I'd love to hear them. Thanks in advance.

Hi, I have a small Lena in turquoise with stem in tact and box, bag and all the pamphlets. I haven't used it but only a dry run and found the cup way too firm for me. I am looking for a Lunette size 1 in coral (Aine). I am wanting to trade cups.

I am pretty freaked out right now. I went to remove my menstrual cup last night and my IUD came right out with it!

I'm honestly not sure how it happened. I've had the Paraguard since last August, 12 weeks post-partum, and it's been in place every time I've checked since then. This is my fourth period since then, but my first using a new cup. I had used a cup + IUD, before I got pregnant, for over two years with no problems.

I used my normal method: push a finger up beside and press till I break the suction, then pull the stem. I felt a little twinge but I assumed it was from pressing on my cervix, since the new cup (size A Mooncup UK) is firmer than my old one (small DivaCup), with a thicker rim, and I'm still getting the hang of it. And then the IUD was just SITTING IN THE CUP!

I will be calling the gyno first thing tomorrow morning, and I kept the IUD to take in and check to make sure it wasn't a mechanical failure, so to speak. What else can I do to figure out what happened? How likely is this to happen again?

Thank you in advance for any responses or advice; I'm just not sure what to do about this! I'm also posting to the iud_divas community, so apologies for any f-list duplicates.

Hi! I am super super new to the menstrual cup community, and I already am enjoying the benefits of the cup versus other menstrual products. I had wanted to start using a cup for awhile, but kept putting it off. My family is going on vacation to Florida in August--probably the hottest, most humid time of the year there--and according to my cycle tracking, I will be on my period the entire trip. Lovely. This prompted me to buy the most accessible menstrual cup in time to learn how to use it for one cycle before the trip. So, with really no research or cervix-searching, measuring, anything like that, I bought a small Diva Cup.

I'm at the end of the second day of my period. Yesterday, Day 1: I found that the bottom of the cup and the stem stick out of my vagina a little bit. The stem really bothered me yesterday, so this morning I cut most of it off and it feels much better now. I had one leak yesterday during the day. I was able to wear the cup overnight with no leaks at all, which was awesome, and it was only 1/4 of the way full this morning.

Today, Day 2: I changed my cup in the shower this morning, it seemed to go well. However, about 15 minutes after getting out I was leaking slightly, so I took the cup out and reinserted. I went to work, and about an hour later felt like it was leaking again. I went to the bathroom and took the cup out, then reached a finger in to try to feel my cervix because of what I had read on this forum. :) My cervix was pretty low, barely to the second knuckle on my index finger, and also tilts to my left. Additionally, I think my cervix dips quite a bit. So I reinserted the cup, this time trying to aim for my cervix and suction around it. I checked with a finger all the way around to make sure it was inside. When I got home 4 hours later, I had some minor leaking.

The rest of the day I tried putting the cup as low as possible to see if that would help--I was thinking maybe the cup would suction to the walls of the vagina and stay put and that would be enough, I think the Diva is probably too long for that though.

Basically, no matter what, today I cannot keep the cup in without leaks for more than 3 hours. The leaks are minor but annoying. For our trip I want to hopefully be able to not have to wear a liner in the heat if possible.

Day 2 of my period is always my heaviest day, and while the cup has made it easier, I really want the cup to work without leaks on every day of my period if possible! Besides being cleaner, it's not providing that much of a benefit over pads right now in terms of convenience.

From reading, it sounds to me like maybe the Diva is too long for me. From measuring my finger, I know that today my cervix is about 46 mm from the opening of my vagina. The furthest I can reach up is a little more than 70 mm.Also I think my cervix is probably taking up a lot of space in the cup and causing it to overflow and leak a lot sooner than it would. I tried turning it inside out, it didn't help.

Should I get a shorter cup? Would I be able to seal it low in my vagina, below my cervix, and have it stay there and be effective without its capacity being affected by my cervix? Or is there a trick to make the Diva Cup work for me so I don't have to spend another $40? I know I'm still very early on in the learning process but I want to see if I can figure this out sooner rather than later.

Thank you in advance!
 
I have an original Meluna in a size medium. It came in the blue velvet bag when I bought it about 8ish years ago. I wanted to replace it so ordered another medium Meluna only to not have it fit the same. It sits too low now so I can feel the cup :( Any recommendations to replace it? I love my existing Meluna and hoped for the same. I don't really want to try a bunch of different brands but if there is something similar to original sizing I will check it out! I am wondering if the XL shorty Meluna would be closest to the older sizing. I tried contacting Meluna without any luck.

I have recently have been looking to buy my first menstrual cup , and from what I have read the length of how high up your cervix is, is one of the biggest factors when choosing a cup. I did the finger test ( on the first and second day of period) and I was unable to touch my cervix with my whole finger, so first I assumed I had a high cervix, but I have short fingers, with my longest finger being 2.5 inches long. Is this considered high ? I was reading that some people were considering 3-4 inches or higher a high cervix. Also any ideas on how to do the test to see how high my cervix truly is ?
So after owning my divacup for several months, and trying it a few evenings, I finally decided to get serious about it this cycle. This is my second day of wearing it to work, and probably the heaviest day of my cycle. So heavy, in fact, that I found myself needing to empty it at work today - yikes! But everything went totally smoothly, and now I am feeling like I am really getting the hang of it!

I'm getting a fair amount of leaking, but to be honest, it's probably no more than what I got from using tampons - so I can totally live with it. And I'm hoping as I get better at inserting the cup the leaking will reduce.

Inserting and taking out the cup is getting MUCH easier already. I've learned to insert the rim of the cup just past my pubic bone and then let it glide up into place - sometimes with a little push from a finger and muscles.

One thing I realized I was doing WAY wrong at the beginning was taking the cup out. I was trying to get my fingers up far enough to squeeze the cup and take it out that way. Because my cup sits far inside, and it's hard to get around my pubic bone, this was not only very difficult, but somewhat painful. Now I learned to just grab a hold of the stem and gently pull down (with a little muscle help, by bearing down) until the cup is closer to the entrance. Then I give a gentle squeeze to the cup before pulling it all the way out. It also seems to be easier to remove if I tip it and let one side of the rim come out first.

Now that I'm feeling more confident I'm hoping things will just get easier!

Well it's my 3rd day of using the diva cup on my cycle and I ABSOLUTELY love it!! Just got the hang of making sure it was open and it didn't leak tho today when I wiped I did have a little bit of pink on the tissue. I checked to see if it was open all the way it was, so I decided to take out and empty it only the bottom was full. Has anyone had this happen and did you take it out all the way or is there an easier way to repostion it?
Hello! I'm in need of some advice.

Background info, I am 33 years old, I think I have an average height cervix, never given birth, and my flow is usually light to medium, with maybe 1 heavier day.

I purchased my first cup, a Belladot size 2 (only brand I could find easily available in my country)

I have used it a total of 4 days (and nights), with varying results. I can get it in and out fairly easily, and if I run my finger around the cup it seems to have opened up completely.
However, whenever I have it in, I get a sort of dull pain in my lower stomach area. I also wonder if it's placed too low, but I can never get it further up. I cut the stem because it was bothering me, so if I stick a finger up there I can probably get almost to the first knuckle before I feel the bottom of the cup.

I was having trouble with some airbubbles, and I was getting some spots of blood in my underwear, so I took it out and it seemed to have done it's job, there was no blood on the outside of the cup.
I keep getting these airbubbles no matter how I try to insert it, and small drops of blood.

Yesterday, I was sitting and I felt another bubble, but this time it was accompanied with a loud POP. No mistaking that, the seal was broken. How did that happen? What can cause a fully open cup to lose the seal without any movement?

I took it out again, and inserted it, and slept with it through the night. When I got up, I went to take it out, and for a second there I couldn't even find my opening, it seems I am swollen, so there was "more skin", making it difficult to find the opening.. I managed eventually, but I'm a little scared to put it in again now that I'm swollen and all.

I really want to make this work, but I know I may have some issues with placement. Should I try a shorter cup? A stiffer one or softer one?
Any help at all is greatly appreciated.
Oh, I have tried several methods of folding the cup, using the c-fold as a favorite.
 
23 May 2017 @ 12:13 pm
So I bought a Diva cup researched folds to use and then tried practicing for a half hour. I checked with my finger to see if it was up all the way and if any "dent" were in it ,none could be found. Also checked to see if cervix could be felt couldn't find it so thought that was a good thing. The question is I didn't hear the "popping" sound ppl say you hear but when pulling it out I could feel a pull and a slight pop. I normally use instead cups so I thought I'd give this a try but not sure if I have the cup high enough so there wont be any leaks. How high exactly does it need to be? The stem is just inside my labia and I'm seriously thinking of cutting that thing off. My period is supposed to be coming Saturday(if I calculated it right) and was hoping to get the jest of it. Any advice?

I am a mother of multiple using a lena cup large. I have a high cervix and find that i have to find a restroom and push my cup back up into my vagina every hour of so throughout the day some days. I love my cup, but its super uncomfortable and painful when its so low that its coming out of my vagina as im walking. I prefer it sitting up high, right around my cervix (which it is, for the first few minutes after i get it in).
What is a better cup for me? I want to change but im not sure what will fit better.
21 May 2017 @ 10:55 pm
Hello ladies,
I am 23 y.o., a beginner in using cups.
Now I have three cups: Meluna medium Classic, Yuuki soft small, Si-bell small.
So the problem is that all these cups feel uncomfortable when they are inside me.
I'm talking about my heavier days now.
Basic info: I always have cramps, I am sensitive, my cervix is medium to low (I guess) on my first days, it's somewhat average on regular days.
The issue is that I feel the cup inside and it makes some kind of pressure, I think, on my bladder, but I'm not sure on what particularly.
I can't use Yuuki cup at all - I have hard times inserting/removing it and wearing it. It's too firm for me.
Meluna cup is somewhat comparatively ok, but it maybe painfull to remove it due to thicker rims.
I love Si-bell, it is soft and nice, it's easy to insert it and to remove, but it is still uncomfortable inside :( Idk what's the issue.
It is just putting the pressure on something inside me. And it bothers me.
Sometimes when I insert cup in some wrong way I may feel really anxious, because it also irritates or pushes something - and this feeling would gone if I remove it.
Other times I feel ok, but still feel some pressure.
I remember that once I felt no pressure or irritating feelings at all with meluna cup (I have tested si-bell cup only on my heavy days yet), but it was on my last and light days of period.
Help please! I really want to figure it out and feel comfortable with cups :)
Do you have any ideas or advices?

Any help would be appreciated.

PS sorry for my English ;(

Hi, everyone! I've been curious about whether there is or isn't any correlation between things like a person's age, physical activity, birth history, etc. and what cup(s) they end up preferring. I'd greatly appreciate it if you could fill out this anonymous Google Forms survey (just once please!) so I could eventually run statistical analysis on the results. Feel free to link it to a cup-using friend.

Hey, a friend linked me here last night and I've been going through the archive, but I'm hoping someone might be able to help a little more specifically. Thanks in advance for your time.

I'm a 22 yo virgin who is trying to use a Diva Cup 1 for the first time this cycle. 5'3", not much more activity than walking the classroom while I student teach or standing upright all day at my weekend job. I'll admit I'm not super in touch with my body. I also didn't research the different varieties of cup before buying. Diva is the only one sold in stores around me, and I needed something quickly. After a minor plumbing emergency we realized that the pipes can't handle tampons, which I've worn comfortably for years, and my cycle is way too heavy to possibly get through the night with just pads. (I was using ultra tampons before this.) Throwing the tampons in the trash isn't an option, so a friend suggested the Diva Cup, which she loves.

I've only tried it for one day and night so far (first day of my cycle), but at this point I'm in tears.

So far as I could tell I was (eventually) getting it in correctly. I was using the push down fold because the c fold was too hard to get in, but I got to the point where I could run one finger fully around the cup and more or less rotate it that way, and I wasn't leaking as far as I could tell. (The longest I managed to sit with it in was about three hours, with a pad underneath and spotting free.)

The problem was it hurt the entire time.

I normally get mild to moderate cramps the first few days, so I thought that might be this, and I took a midol, which is normally enough to quickly get me feeling better. But the entire time I was wearing the cup, within 20-30 minutes of insertion I'd start feeling pain like a really intense kind of cramp-like feeling. I took it out and reinserted over and over and over, but repositioning never seemed to help. I ended up only sleeping about three hours last night, and now that I've given up and switched to just a pad, I actually feel really sore.

Again, I could run a finger all along the cup and no leaking, so I thought I had inserted it right, but is there a possibility I was doing something wrong to make this so utterly painful and miserable? I'm going to start birth control after this cycle and pray it makes things lighter, but in the meantime I don't know what I'm going to do overnight if I can't use a cup.

Hello fellow cup users.

So, much like I don't believe in soulmates, I don't technically believe in Goldilocks cups. I, of course, believe there are cups that work better for a person, but I'm sure more than one cup could work. At least I'm hoping. I picked my first cup solely because it was orange (LadyCup).

Sadly, my Large LadyCup is done. I'm super bummed because I ordered back when they sold the two-packs that had a large and a small. So perfect. But they don't do that anymore. And the LadyCup website has been very glitchy lately, making me nervous to purchase from them.

I was in Walgreens the other day and saw the Diva Cup and wondered what they were like.

So, I know there are many people here who are cup collectors/connoisseurs, and would be able to give me a rundown on LadyCup vs. Diva Cup. Pretty much, my favorite thing about the LadyCup was I had an orange one. I did like how soft it was, but I could see it even being a little softer than I need. The capacity seemed fine.

Does anyone have any input on these two cups?

Two pretty new cups, Rainbow Jolly with a blurry rainbow print, and Rainbow Lines, with more separate colours. :-)

Hey folks -

New to LJ; new to this community, but have nosed around for info (however, LJ "Advanced Search" seems to yield only "Error 503" messages)... I'll try to be brief (OK, so I'm not good at being brief)...

My basic lowdown:
41-y-o, nulliparous, average (but, based on definition here, also dangly?) cervix, typically strong/heavy/crampy flow, very physically active.
I first started using a Diva Cup about 10 years ago, and (after a learning curve similar to many described here) got really comfy with it.
After going off the Pill a couple years ago, my periods got WAY heavier (which they'd been before) and crampier (which they hadn't). Also, last year, I had an ectopic pregnancy, and have noticed my cervix and maybe my whole uterine region being a lot more sensitive since then. So it's been a while since I've used a cup (have been on pads since last year, because inserting anything has been a lot trickier; even sex = much more challenging due to sensitivity/tenderness of cervical area). But when I realized that a camping trip would coincide with AF, I thought it would be a good time to get back into cup usage.

A friend shared this quiz, which blew my mind because I had NO IDEA so many new kinds of cups have come out in the past 10 years (this was before I found this community), and based on the quiz, I bought a Super Jennie.
Holy crap. That thing is soft. I mean, that was kind of the point, as I was nervous about the Diva poking and being generally uncomfy, but it is pretty different from the Diva in several ways.
A. Day 1 (not the heaviest flow day) the stem hung out a decent amount after inserting, but after 6 or 8 hours, it was actually kind of a challenge to reach the stem, and I was like "Glad I didn't trim that stem after all!" I guess the seal/suction kind of scooted it up over the course of the day?
B. Day 2 (definitely heaviest flow day) it was overflowing after maybe 4 or 5 hours. After reading around here, this is only one thing that suggests I have a "dangly" cervix - it takes up some cup room. Also, I can actually get the cup all the way around the cervix and feel the cervix inside the rim (I had no idea it wasn't necessarily like this for everyone, and this was actually how I'd always make sure I'd inserted a cup correctly).
C. On maybe all days, but definitely at its worst on days 2 through 4, I could not get the cup to open properly. It was just too soft! I struggled a lot, and I'll defo try some suggestions I've seen here as well as on YouTube, on my next cycle, but it took a long time and was very painful to get it to open.
D. On all days, it was very painful to remove. On day 4, it took so long (and involved so much yelling, swearing, and crying) that I just went back to pads at that point (I was home from camping by then). It just felt like everything I knew from the Diva did not apply here. It was so squashy it felt impossible to break the seal!
E. On the plus side, it was not uncomfy at all to wear.

Would love any and all advice. Some things I'm wondering:
1. Firmness as related to insertion/removal - thoughts? I shied from a very firm cup because of nervousness about pressure on surrounding area, but felt like I paid the price in terms of getting it in/out. Also, firmness at rim vs firmness of lower cup (where you can grip to break seal/remove) - thoughts?
2. Shape of cup ("V" vs bell vs round) - thoughts? I've heard non-V-shaped can be good for capacity and/or for a dangly cervix, but nervous about bulbous shape being a challenge in other ways (like how it feels).
3. Cup capacity and
4. Comfort while wearing are also still concerns.

I've been considering trying a Ruby and or a "soft" Yuuki (in larger sizes for both), based on the above - any other rec's? The Merula is both intriguing and intimidating.

If there are already existing threads that address these issues, please point the way! I didn't see any existing tags re: cup firmness or shape, and like I said, the LJ Advanced Search didn't seem to work for me. Many thanks to this community for even existing!! I'm glad I found y'all.

Hey, all, so I have a kind of gross question. When I go out running or when I wake up in the morning, I'll go to the bathroom and see that there is blood all over the inside of my pants. When I take the cup out to investigate, it's nearly empty. I check to make sure that the opening of my cervix is inside of the cup every time I put it in, so this says to me that the cup is emptying itself while I run/get out of bed. The running part started a few cycles ago; the emptying on waking started this cycle and has happened every morning since it started. Help!

Hello everyone,
I have been using cups for sometime now and I've finally decided to ask for some advice, because it seems I can't solve the leaking problem on my own. I'm under 30 and a virgin. I have three cups that I use, the small Lybera, the large Femcup, (not the Femcap) and I recently bought the Merula cup which seems to have the biggest capacity (40 mls) of all. I purchased the large Femcup because it initially seemed to me that the Lybera's diameter was too small. It doesn't matter what I do, they will always leak. All of them. Always. I can hear all the cups - and now the merula cup - opening when they are inside, I check if they have sealed with my finger, but they always leak after a couple of minutes. Is it possible to have a cervix abnormality? When not on my period I can feel my cervix low enough and a bit titled to the right side, but that's it. When on my period I can't feel anything at all. I tried to make my cervix sit inside the cup, but I can't distinguish my cervix or anything else down there, like if it has entirely changed its shape. Also, with every cup I have used, I don't have to break the seal to drag them down. There's this sound- even with the merula cup- like if air is suddenly balancing the pressure, and all I have to do is pull the cup out. I thought I could solve the leaking issue by myself but I'm really tired of trying without results, so please if you have any suggestions they will be more than welcome.

Edit:
The Merula cup (which I am most interested in making it work, and which I am currently trying) has a diameter of 40 mm. Is it possible if I finally make my cervix sit inside it to close the opening of the cervix resulting the blood to be trapped in the uterus or/ and to cause pain? I normally do not worry about other cups, but this in particular, seems to have the smallest diameter.

Hello everyone!
I changed to menstrual cups 1 year ago, and love it! I even got a cup for my mom, but she told me she gets urinary infections everytime she uses it, like when she uses tampons. Also she won't but reusable pads because she hates the idea of cleaning them, so no way to go the reusable path with cloth pads. Is there a remedy, a way to prevent these infections, so that she can use the cup comfortably?
Thanks for your help

Hello everyone!
I have a question about the femmycycle: is its lifespan really only one year? Have some of you been using it for more than two years? Was there a problem with this?
Thanks a lot
30 April 2017 @ 06:57 pm
I sterilize my cup before every period? Should I do it more or less? And can I clean it with toilet paper every time during the period or should I use water and/or soap? I am quite clueless, please help me with this.

Hello menstrual cup users!
I'm new to this blog but it looks like a great place and I hope to find some help here.
I'm 16 and a virgin, with a regular to light flow and a short-medium cervix (second knuckle during my period), which I also think is a bit tilted (inserting my cup is easier when I angle it to the right). I use a cup, the organicup size a and I love it: I won't ever switch back to tampons ! I've been using it for a year, and consider myself an experimented user, so I can insert it and take it out just fine.

However, I experience leaking or mostly spotting all through my period, so I have to use a pad with it (now sometimes there is no leaking, but I always have to have a pad, because I never know). I would like to be able to use the menstrual cup without a pad, for myself (I hate pads with a passion) and for the environment, and be able to sleep easier at night (although I stress much less about staining the sheets than when I slept with pads).

I think it is because the organicup is too soft that I experience leaking (since I am young and quite fit I think I have strong pelvic muscles). It is also a pain to get it to open inside me I often have to spend lots of time opening it manually with my fingers once it is inside me.

I would like a cup with a little heavier capacity, to be able to keep it a full 12 hours during my heaviest days ( I manage for about 10 hours with the oragicup) and more stiff, or at least that doesn't leak at all. I dont mind a learning curve. I am currently eyeing the femmycycle low cervix (because the teen only has 17,5 mL) and the Lena cup small.

Have you tried the 3 cups mentioned? If you have, can I have comparison pics, with stiffness too? And which one do you think would be ore suited to my needs? I don't have the money to buy both. Thanks a lot

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased a small Sckoon Cup on the recommendation of a friend, and this is my first period that I am trying it out. So far so good, I think, but I have a few questions.

I have searched all over the internet, but have found nothing describing my cervix situation so far. My cervix is suuuuper low. I have to reach my whole middle finger in to reach the tip of it, but the thing is, I'm reaching downward to get to the tip. If I insert a finger horizontally toward my back while standing I feel the cervix like a long, semi-stiff vertical shaft, and I have to reach way downward to feel the tip of it, lower than the opening of my vagina. I recently had an IUD inserted and the doctor didn't mention my cervix being abnormally long or anything. He did mention my uterus is slightly tilted (he didn't say which direction), but he said that everything looks good down there. All the diagrams for cup insertion show the cervix way up high, and the cup way down low, which I know is exaggerated, but what if your cervix opening is lower than the opening of your vagina? So my first question: is anyone else's cervix like this? Has anyone heard of this before?

Secondly, when I use the Sckoon cup, it seems to suction onto my cervix. If I don't ensure that my cervix is sitting inside the cup, then the cervix opening is below the rim of the cup and it doesn't work. So at this point my cervix is filling up half the cup and the cup is suctioning onto my cervix stronger than onto the walls of my vagina. This isn't uncomfortable (maybe a little upon taking it out), but it leaves hardly any capacity in the cup, and I am concerned about suction on my cervix because of my IUD. So my second question is, what cup would you recommend? I think I can definitely go wider than the Sckoon cup without discomfort, and I could probably go a little deeper if I got a cup with a smooth bottom and shortened the stem. The Femmycycle cup looks like a decent option except that the rim looks super uncomfortable to have your cervix sitting in it. Any thoughts?

I am 28 and have never had children, btw.

Thanks everyone!
