what about the divacup? it's not expensive, it's never failed me. I also have my mooncup uk but i use the diva more often. (I'm small, 5'4 105lbs)

I haven't used a cup, but....I've done a lot of research!
I haven't used a cup, but I'm leaning towards the lunette. Customer service was great. I can buy it off ebay! It's not that much bigger than a lady cup, but still holds a lot. It has a flat stem, which is supposed to be very comfortable. For some reason I always thought the lady cup looked sketchy. (Can't explain it...maybe it was how their site was translated..I dunno.) My second choice would be the Mia cup because there's a 6 month money back guarantee, and its purple. It has a flat stem as well. It's similar to the diva. (There's a comparison chart somewhere here.) Go to www.ecomenses.com for more brand comparison. Check the memories tags "Virginity". It has a lot of teen posts. Good luck!

The Femmecup is quite large. It's wider than the small Diva. If you're 13 with a heavy flow, the small Lunette probably makes the most sense.

Also, your posts would be easier to read if you used punctuation.

This really isn't something we can decide for you. Take a look at the archives I linked you to on a previous post, do some reading up, and use that to make your decision.

I found this thorough review very helpful:

I personally decided on the LadyCup because of it's softer silicone but I think the Lunette, LadyCup or Mia are all great choices (Lunette and Mia are virtually the same other than color).

love my lunette
Just wanted to second the Lunette recommendation. It's easy to clean because of the big holes and flat stem. I like the shape and the material, too.

Re: love my lunette
I also agree with the Lunette recommendation. I am very happy with it, although I cut off the whole stem. I'm a teen and I bought the bigger size when I was 13.

You messaged me with questions but your PM's are blocked.But here's the answer to you question/

I love mine, I'm glad that I bought this one instead of another brand. I haven't had a single problem with it, and I am a first time cup user. I think it would be one of the better cups for a teenager, since it is very flexible and most likely the softest cup on the market. But it really is just trial and error you have to find the right one for your body.

as others have mentioned, there's no hard and fast way to tell which cup is the right cup for you. any cup, used right, shouldn't leak, but some people have trouble with some brands--look through the archives and you'll find posts complaining about every brand of cup, and more extolling their respective virtues. it really depends on you and your vagina and what you're comfortable with.
that much said, ladycup is probably the smallest, softest one out there, and lunette is probably best for small size/large capacity.

look through the taglist on the right sidebar and read up on stuff until you feel more comfortable making a decision.

also, punctuation is your friend. be nice to it.
