Does your cup stay in place or does it slip down?
I don’t really exercise but I have trouble keeping my xl meluna (which is quite firm) in place. Most times I insert it, it slips down and even starts coming out. Every time I use the restroom I feel like I need to take it out and re-insert because it is coming out. Because it is one of the biggest cups made I’m at a loss what to try next. I have had 4 vaginal births. Would a softer big cup be a better fit?
I’m not really sure what’s going on there, but it could just be the wrong cup for you. Do you have a very heavy flow or a high cervix? Does the cup apply too much pressure to your urethra, bladder, or bowel?
As you mentioned, a softer cup might help. The softer body may form to your anatomy better instead of a firm cup being forced out by involuntary contractions. A shorter cup might also be something to think about. Do you know if you have a low, medium, or high cervix? If the cup is too long, then I can understand why it feels like it’s going to slide out.
How to Locate & Measure Your Cervix
If you need a high-capacity cup, you can check out the large Venus Cup, large or XL LaliCup, or the Merula XL. The Venus and LaliCups would be the softer options of the three.
If you have a medium-length cervix, a medium or large LaliCup might feel the most comfortable. While the Merula is shorter (with the stem trimmed), its bulbous body might make it feel too firm.
If you need a cup for a high cervix, the large Venus Cup, large or XL LaliCup would be the better over the shorter Merula XL.
How many births you’ve had doesn’t necessarily mean you need the largest cup. Knowing how low or high your cervix is can help you determine what length or shape might be more comfortable for you. If you need a cup with high capacity, there are both shorter and longer cups that hold a good amount.
Let me know if you have any questions about the cups that I mentioned or any others that might come to mind.
Good Luck! <3
