LOTS of Pantie-Shields

Here I am, at the heaviest point of Cycle #7 with cups.

I have retired my large Diva so I am using my large UK Mooncup (for light flow) and large Lunette (for heavy) and am experiencing MINOR (for lack of a better word) "leakage" with both.  It's what my friend calls "blow-by."  It's the residual blood that what winds up on the "far side" during a cup dump or swap and then slips out.  It's just enough to NEED a pantie-shield.

I'm not complaining and the benefits of cups FAAAAAAR outweigh those of tampons but it's not the first cycle that I've remarked that I use a LOT of pantie-shields -- a lot more than I ever did with tampons.

Has anyone else noticed that?

PS - Completely off topic... Check out this shot of Fat Thelma as my icon.  "Bring me Solo and the Wookie!"
