    When I'm removing it, I squat and bare down, that moves the cup down far enough for me to pinch the base. That's one reason I change in the shower as pinching the base can cause a spill.

    If you haven't already watch this clip about choosing your first cup, it talks about how to measure your cervix length to get the right one.

    Side note this chicky is about 15, I'm in love with her. I hope my daughter is this cool about menstruation when she's a teenager!

    She is amazing! I'm a midwife and was blown away she had that knowledge about her body! Turns out I have a high cervix, I did not know that lol. And I really should have in my line of work lol.

    The pink cup she showed, was it cebil? Seville? She spoke so fast I couldn't catch it.

    I'm a 3 cycle in cup convert now!! Love my cup, but it only works for me turned inside out and stem cut off, even if I try to insert with no stem, I can still feel it, but inside out I can't at all.

    I do find with mine that i know when to empty as it drops a fair bit and I become more aware of it - I'm wondering how you can get it to stay higher longer because mine is only ever half full when it does this?

    Maybe it's too small or the suction isn't activated when you insert?

    It's a bit tricky, isn't it, getting the whole process to work seamlessly takes about 4 - 5 cycles I found.

    I'm not sure about soft cups...but I love the MeLuna brand because they have so many options which allows you to get the right cup size and softness for you.

    Have a look at juju... They're an Aussie company. Not sure how soft they are in comparison to others, but it can't help checking out their site. I've found mine really comfortable the last few days.. Although I have no bladder problems. I didn't feel it irritated my bladder though/putting pressure on it like I needed to pee or anything. Might be worth a squiz?

    Hi. I'm going to jump in for some suggestions. I have a lunette size 2 which had been great in that I have never had a leak, I can work out when using it etc but I find the stem a bit irritating. Can anybody suggest a different cup with a smoother stem?

    Have you tried turning it inside out to insert it?

    I cut the stem off mine, found it still irritated me, so I turned it inside out and now no issues
