    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

    The pink cup she showed, was it cebil? Seville? She spoke so fast I couldn't catch it.
    Si-bell I've ordered a pink one, I also have a juju I'll let you know how it is

    The girl from precious star pads, the 16 year old period guru (check her out on YouTube) recommends the Si-bell as the softest cup, I've ordered one as I have a super sensitive bladder, but having said that I also bought a juju which isn't overly soft according to her and it hasn't bothered me yet.

    It never occurred to me it could be turned inside out. I guess I could try that.... Although I keep having irrational thoughts of it popping back the right way inside me and the stem stabbing me in the cervix...😂
