  1. Without knowing anything about your situation, the best thing I can do is leave you a link on how to choose a menstrual cup:
    https://menstrualcupreviews.net/how-to-choose-a-menstrual-cup/

    Here you can find out how to locate and measure your cervix which will help you determine what shape and size might be the right fit for your anatomy. As well as the different firmness levels and which one might be right for you.

    Good Luck!

  2. Hello Rachel!
    If you like the ergonomic shape of the Lily Cup, you can check out the Kind Cup. The body is shorter, but they included a very long stem and it has the air holes that you’re looking for (four of them). While the bodies aren’t too far off in firmness, the rim of the Kind Cup is softer. I still find the Kind Cups easier to insert with the softer rim than the Lily Cups.
    Other than that, the only easily available ergonomically shaped cups are generic ones and I don’t suggest them.

    Good Luck! <3

  3. Urine does not come from the same “hole”. Unless you have a medical condition that your urethra is connected to the uterus, there is no way that your cup is filling with urine while it’s inserted. The cup sits around or right under the cervix. It collects what comes out of the uterus through the cervix. Urine is held in the bladder and is not collected in this same cavity.

    However, as I stated previously, your vagina cleans itself by way of mucus and discharge. They can be white, yellow, brown, green…all meaning different things, and have different odors.

    If it is in FACT urine, I would suggest contacting a doctor for treatment as unwanted bacteria may harbor and cause infections.

  4. I’m so glad that you included this! I didn’t know how deep to go into “sex” as I know that everyone has different definitions about it. It’s a touchy subject for some – as is the topic and definition for “virgin”. It’s great to be able to read/see another side other than “penetrative – penis/vagina” sex.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave some great info!
    Happy New Year!

  5. Stems help you reach the cup, but you don’t want to use the stem to “pull the cup out”.
    First of all, if your cup has created a seal/suction, you’ll need to break it. You can do this by pinching the base of the cup, collapsing the side of it, or pulling back or down on the rim.
    If there is a seal/suction and you tug on the cup, you can also tug on your cervix which may cause discomfort, pain and even some cramping.
    You’ll only want to use the stem to be able to reach the base of the cup. The stem itself will not support the weight of the cup when you remove it from your body, especially if it contains fluid.

  6. Hi Cara! Here are some things to think about when hunting for a new cup: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uONPxEIQ_yo It might help you narrow down your search. There are so many cups on the market and if I just suggest cups that I like, it would be based on my experience and may not be what you want in a cup for YOUR needs. If you still need some suggestions after you watch the video, I’d be happy to help as long as you can answer some of the “guidelines” mentioned in it.

  7. Done! 😀 I’ll post this on my page as well. Good luck with your survey!

  8. I know this is old, but femininewear.co.uk now carries these cups! If you can’t find a discount code for it, you can use code: RedHerringTV for 10% off your total order 🙂 Happy Shopping!

  9. I would wait for these to clear up before using a cup. I would also definitely ask your doctor for clearance before using a cup for these and your other (posted) health concerns.

  10. For safety and health reasons, I would definitely ask a physician before using a menstrual cup. Out of curiosity, has your doctor allowed you to use tampons or any other type of item that is to be inserted into the vagina?
