I've been using the Mooncup UK for a year now and with great success until recently.  About 2 months ago, it started leaking... but only at night time (when i'm laying down). NOW.. with my last cycle, it leaked every day. I'd take out the cup and it would be empty and there'd be blood in the toilet, blood on my pantiliner, blood everywhere. NO GOOD.

I am 23 years old, never had a kid... however, i use the large size.  the reason i chose the large is because femmecup only comes in one size which is the equivalent of a large, lady cup recommends the age cut off as being 25 (which i'm getting close to), and lunette used to only provide one size as well... recommended for all ages. I figured that a large is only a few millimeters different and I could use it forever anyhow.

ANYWAY... i think the mooncup isn't working due to it's stiffness and "step" style ridges.  Do you like a smoother, more flexible cup like the LadyCup would be more suited towards me? Will it be bendy enough to morph into the correct shape no matter how i'm positioned?
