    Anyone have experience using a menstrual cup with mirena.i used one before mirena but when i got it the obgyn discouraged me frome using it any more.

      Many women use a cup with an IUD and from what I’ve heard (I don’t personally have an IUD) obgyns who are familiar with cups tend to say that it’s just fine — just be conscious of your strings and release the suction before pulling the cup down/out.

      I have been using mine for over a year (4 years for the cup, 1 yr with Mirena) my nurse practitoner but she also said there was no real research about it and she just did not know. I personally use the lunette which is very thick and hard so that makes ti almost impossible to ever be confused with my mirena strings. The one thing is that due to me having a mirena my flow has gone down so much I really do not really need such a big cup but my experience has been great. Obviously the only thing would be to NOT use it on the 7 days after insertion, just like you cannot swim or use tampons.

    I struggle with my cup (Lunette 2) sliding down throughout the day. Should I try a cup with a larger diameter or shorter length? Thanks!

  • Katherine

    Clarifying question: do the lengths listed here include the stem or are they the length of the cup and the stem length should be added on to get full length top-to-bottom? Thank you.

    I’ve never used a cup before, but I’m interested in trying, at least. I’m 40 years old, I have a relatively small vaginal canal, and a slightly tilted uterus. I have no idea where to begin. I think I’m interested in trying the diva cup, but I don’t know what size. Any suggestions?
    Thank you,

      I’m not sure if you bought a cup yet or not. I bought the Lena cup small. It works fine for me (so far…This is my first cycle using any cup). I’m 41 yrs, with what I guess is a low cervix (my cup doesn’t go anywhere once it’s in). I’ve had a child 15 years ago. And my flow is normal. I also have light incontinence (light accidents when I sneeze or cough), so I bought the sensitive cup. The sensitive cup takes a little work to open because it’s not very firm. I use the fold in half fold because I find it easier to open and create a good seal. I’ve only been using it for two days, but I haven’t had any leaks as of yet. Sorry if this is TMI, but I just wanted to help you out…or anyone else who might be deciding on getting a cup.

      If they have, they haven’t updated the measurements on their website. We’ll certainly update it we learn that it has been changed.

        Sound is a natural phenomenon which can be explained in mathematical terms. Sound “dead” areas can and do occur so people who say they don’t hear turbine noise/not affected are likely telling the truth as they are in a “dead” sound area. All just part of the sound phenomenon picture.

    Hello,

    Is there a comparison of firmness between different brands? I bought the Eva cup and have been trying every troubleshooting technique I can find online and it still won’t pop open. Since it’s squished partially, its only catching about half, very annoying. Maybe I need the smaller size or a different cup??

    Are the height measurements with or without the stem/ball? I’m having a difficult time getting a cup to work because of a low cervix with scarring from vaginal tears and would like to know the size of the actual cup part.

    I have a tilted cervix and the first two days are very heavy and then after that barely anything and I have a lot of clots, which one should I use I have had two natural births and a C section and I have never ever been able to wear a tampon, which cup should I get or try.

      I don’t know if you have already bought your cup, but I am in the same boat as you minus the whole giving birth thing. I use the small ruby cup, you may want to try the larger model.

    I am a cup convert!! It has literally changed everything! I am so happy that menstrual cups are becoming popular now. I tell all my friends. I’ve tried diva but recently switched to calla, it has the best level of rigidity for me, feels really secure. Let’s all save the environment together girls! Long live the cup!! <3

    I have never used a cup and I have relied on birth control pills to control flow and horrible mestrual difficulties since age 15 (I am now 46). The only exception was to become pregnant one time but as soon as my son was born (9 years ago), I went back on the pill. I did try to go off it about 20 mons ago (for 3-4 cycles) but the flow was heavy, the periods erratic, and the cramps so terrible I returned to the pill. I am now interested in going off the pill permanently and want to try a cup. But… I am terrified! I rarely have inserted tampons (due to the pill and a very light flow) so have little experience with the ‘feel’ of my insides, if you will. Lunette and Lena cups were recommended. I am in need of advice, suggestions, tips, down right encouragement to begin this change. Thank you in advance ladies! Peace.

    Which one would you consider the most similar to a diva cup size 1 inside out?

    Reply
  • Heather Guymon

    I have been using the FemmyCycle cup and love it! I think you should check it out. It’s different from the others I’ve tried and doesn’t put pressure on my bladder. I use the lower cervix one, even though I am not entirely sure my cervix is low, and it’s super comfortable for me.

      It’s nice to hear this as I currently have a diva but about 1 or 2 days every few months there is a time my cervix drops more than usual and I need a lower cervix cup. I’ve been wanting to try this one, thinking on a twin pack since I have a close friend with a very low cervix who wants to try out a cup. This just makes it better for the budget.

    So I purchased a “soft silicone menstrual cup” 2 pack sold by diggold on amazon(not shown on pictures as any brand on this list- the stems have little hearts on them. The first time I used one, it was awesome. I inserted during my shower, it fit perfect, filled up during the day, etc. I swapped at night and woke up to niagara falls. And every time I’ve attempted to use them since then, I leak and they won’t open all the way.
    Do I need a larger size or a firmer cup? I bought a small because I have issues with normal sized equipment being used during my yearly exams.

    • Experience with that

      Make sure the holes are not clogged preventing a seal. You can tug down on it once inserted to be sure it’s sealed. I rotate it ever so slightly to ensure it’s fully open.

    Hi, Can you write a review about Lali cup. It is medical grade silicone cup from Slovenia, they have 3 sizes, medium soft firmness, between V and bell shape. |
    I have a question about the shape of the cup. Is it possible that V shape suits better then bell shaped cup?

    I have a small question if you guys would please get back to me when you can. I am almost 18 and I’ve never worn a cup before. I’m really small and a bit underweight and very skinny. Tampons sometimes hurt and don’t always go in without pressure and I sometimes have to force them in. I’ve never had a child and i never got my cervix checked out but I know my vagina is sensitive and when i do out in a tampon it is hard to pee. I also wear regular tampons and my periods are only heavy on the first two days I am interested in a cup because I think it will be better for me. Do you know which cup I should buy or which cup is best for me? Please respond. Thankyou!

        my babes, all it takes is a lottttttt of practice, some bravado (balls/chutzpah lol), and some time spent REALLY getting to know yourself & your insides-which will include getting a bit messy!! my experience with tampons was horrifying, my mom never used them so i had to rely on the girls in my theatre troupe to help me with that one. they were helpful as they could be, but until i became regularly sexually active, my vagina was entirely uncharted waters, and thus very scary for me as a panicky, scared & anxious young girl:/ i eventually (this was literally after YEARS of using tampons to only get to an “ok” point of being comfortable inserting/wearing them) got the hang of them and now that i’ve switched to cups, i’m AMAZED. idk what experience exactly y’all have with tampons, but with me at least, tampons as well as disposable pads.pantiliners have all irritated my inner and outer labia and the surrounding skin so badly!! the worst part though, was the dryness and irritation from tampons, which i only semi-recently realized are full of NASTY chemicals you wouldn’t touch with your hand, let alone be INSERTING INTO YOUR BODY! you feel me?

        so. it seems intimidating, i’m sure. and i’m certainly not perfect with my cup as of right now but girls it is a billion times better than the disposable options, and for so many reasons. do your research-it’ll pay off. this site is great, but there are youtube channels like preciousstarspads whom i think will specifically benefit the both of you immensely!!! seriously, go check her out! and good luck my lil cherry blossoms!!! i’m off to go change my cup actually, lol! good luck<3<3<3

    Hi, found you through I Know I Need To Stop Talking. Before I ask you for ideas of potential Holy Grail cups: have any of you ever tried putting cups in when not on your period? If so, have you found that where you are in your cycle affects he ease or difficulty of getting one in?

    29, 5″ dot, drama person, never had children. My flow is normally heavy enough that I leak on underwear/bottoms/bedding/floor at least once a cycle and clot if I eat badly enough, but also sometimes use Lilets teen night pads as pantliners. I bleed for a week at a time, generally regular as clockwork.

    I have no idea where my cervix is and have never been for any gyno stuff apart from cervical smears or if I’ve had a swollen zitty-type lump. I had been using a particularly soft cup with a bobble end in blue glitter. However, it’s a real faff to get in because I have to fold it every which way and I often find it doesn’t open out all the way. I’m often crampy and sensitive and have taken mefanamic acid in the past. I really liked disposable Softcups but you can’t get them any more in the UK as far as I’m aware. Ones with arms have been pretty hit and miss for me and I wasn’t wild on the Mooncup.

    It’s been a while since I’ve used one and I generally use Always Infinity pads. I avoid tampons because they shed fibres but have used them in the long-ago past.

    I want – and need – one for practical reasons. I get that cups are all about empowering women and think this is great; however, I sometimes feel that cups are marketed towards women while trans men and non-binary bleeders aren’t always taken into account.
    As someone who is in one of those categories, I find this a bit frustrating.

    Hope that anyone *can* help, and thanks for reading

    Hi! I’ve used a diva cup off and on for 8 years and I’m 35. I’ve had 2 csections (never labored and never dialated) and have a size 2 diva per their recommendations. I just got my period 9 months pp and every time I take the diva cup out, it hurts to remove. I have switched to thinx underwear while I sort out which cup would be best. Any ideas which cups might work?

    I need a high capacity cup for low cervix. The femmycycle looks like it would be functional but the reviews imply the no leak funnel thing serves no purpose and can fling blood when opened. I assume I would get used to managing that and it would be worth it to not have to change the cup out as often but the merula cup sounds like it would work better, I’m just not sure what my best option for purchasing it would be.
