Hey there,
I adore cups, I got my first July 2013, on Amazon I got a small mooncup usa, and a lunette small. I hated the mooncup at first, and loved the lunette, now I do like both, I will never go back. These are addicting, now I have a few Meluna, four two large, two small lunette, the mooncup, and I just ordered a Diva cup. So, I think they are awesome. I have dysmenorrah and these are really life changers, I'm anemic, and I thank God these are here..So, I like lunette best, but I like them all. :) That's me. Bridgette

Thank you
Thank you, it is very fun to read about the experiences of others, and the tips. I am glad I'm not the only cup addict because I was thinking, why do I want them all? :)

Re: Thank you
For real, I am almost embarrassed by the number of cups I've bought and sold!

Re: Thank you
Totally, I want every one, and an extra that I don't open, like I am afraid they will drop off the planet and I will face a world of pads or tampons. I bought two for my sister, but she doesn't seem to want to give it a try. I tell her how much better life is with the cups. The thought of going back is awful. It's a blessing these have made a comeback. I rarely was able to sleep without major leaking before, and that's why I first tried. Now I am totally obsessed, like I need the emotional security that this is real and won't leave me. At first, looking forward to my period because of the cup made me worry about it. What's with that, right? I have tried to figure it out, I can't feel these, what's up? I think it's in part realizing I have this almost magical creation that took such a hard thing and makes it easy and...fun? Also it's total permission to take care of myself. And, lol, I think yay I am kinda superwoman, :) I can do stuff! It's like being a kid. And then there is the flat out obsession that makes me watch every single video etc. Lol, it's a kind a magic. :)

Re: Thank you
I so understand. I actually went through a rough learning curve with cups that were too stiff/narrow/long. I wanted them to work because tampons and pads are so "eww" and my imagination and hope kept me trying. I used Diva, Keeper and MeLuna the first four years with, literally, spotty success. When I finally had the money to branch out, I went wild. I now have a modest remnant of my massive, six month buying spree: large Iris, large Sckoon, large LadyCup, Femmecup and small Si-Bell (the 'pantyliner').
Everything you describe is what I've felt since getting the right softness, length and width! It's like "is this for real? I don't have to freak out because I'm menstrual??" So amazing. The benefits are overwhelmingly great. Cheers!

Re: Thank you
:) Good success! I am looking forward to the budget to truely go cup crazy. I was really fortunate, the lunette was one I tried first, and that so far is still my best. I just ordered a large fleurcup and look forward to trying it. I am happy we are blessed to have this life changing product, and online friends to share with. Thank you! :) Lets see if i can make a cup with letters.

D-

LoL ta da! Happy New Year!
