Lunette Selene!

I finally got my Lunette Selene in the mail yesterday! I ordered it JUST before Leastore stopped shipping to the United States, and was very happy that I didn't wait until the next day like I was going to. I was very excited to get it, and popped it in as soon as I got it. Inserting it was a DREAM compared to the Diva, and removal was about the same. For whatever reason, probably because I modified the holes, my Diva suction is easy to break but its hard to get the damn thing to open right when going in... without having to change a thing about the holes, the Lunette worked wonderfully! The suction is stronger, but the different feel of the silicone makes it easier to pop, which is what I like.

Unfortunately, I also just got my IUD inserted today as well. I asked my gynecologist if it would be OK to use a cup with the IUD in place, and she said that its best to wait until after this period and the next, since if its going to expel that will be when it happens, but mine most likely won't because insertion was so easy. I almost can't believe I actually got it, it wasn't nearly as painful as I expected it would be! I am super excited for the next two months to happen, because I just want to be able to use the Lunette for more time than just over night. Oh, and being the silly girl I am, I left my Diva at my house with the Lunette Selene bag, but left the Diva bag in my purse, which came back to college with me, and brought the Lunette itself back as well. I just realized this... it made me giggle so I thought I'd share.

Now my only worry is remembering how to sleep with a pad on... something tells me this is going to be a messy night(or morning!). I made some cloth pads myself... I'm not so worried about bleeding through them, but more about bleeding off of them... But I guess I'll just see how it goes and hope for the best!
