Anyone with a prolapse who uses a reusable menstrual cup? PP Af has not arrived yet (dd still nurses every 2 hrs daytime, and 2x a night), but I want to be prepared. I made a few mama pads, but I think I would prefer a cup. I have a mild bladder prolapse. Will it be comfortable?

I had a severe bladder prolapse as well as uterine and rectal prolapse and could not use internal products -- they would fall out or spill. I used to use Instead cups but there was no way to hook it behind my pubic bone. Had surgery and now I can use tampons. Haven't tried cups.<br><br>
I could get some protection from a cup or a tampon at night and could get through heavy nights with internal + pads. Stand up = fall out.

I have a prolapse (uterine and bladder) and use the Moon Cup. I find that I have to push it up further (toward my sagging cervix) though because my vag muscles just "ain't what they used to be".
