Blossom Cup?

I'm waiting for my cuplee to arrive and stumbled upon a youtube link comparing cuplee and blossom cup. Apparently, blossom cup is a softer cup than the cuplee! Anyone has a blossom cup would like to share their experience on the blossom cup?

New user, cup slides down

I am a new user. I am 45 and have had vaginal births for 3 kids, and labored to the end but ended with a c-section for 2, and had 1 planned c-section. I had a prolapsed uterus or cervix before my last child but it improved. Tampons don't stay in anymore and I was very excited to try a menstrual cup.

I just got a Lunette in the larger size. I've had some trouble getting it in but I *think* I have succeeded a few times. When I have it in where I think it should be, I can't feel it. But the cup still slides down on me. If I sneeze or cough or pee, it comes down as well. If I just walk around, it slides down pretty quickly as well. Does this mean I didn't get it in well enough or do this mean this cup isn't a good fit for me? I don't want to give up on a cup! Advice please! :)

In search of the Goldilocks cup. Day one cramping?

Hi :) i want to start off saying thank you for this community for helping me find my way into menstrual cups a year ago. So far everything is great, except for the first day of my cycle. On the first day i get normal cramps, but using a menstrual cup worsens them and gives me a bloated feeling. The rest of my cycle is just fine, and i can never feel the cup itself. Right now i am using a lunette size 2, for its firmness and capacity. However it may be putting a little too much pressure, but i dont think its because of my cervix its hitting. Before i tried my lunnette i had a size 1 rainbow cup, which was TOO soft and TOO small of a capacity. I am only 17 but i have no issues inserting, taking out, or even feeling the cup.

TLDR: I've been using a lunnette 2, but its been causing worsened cramps on the first day. I'm looking for a cup with a capacity like lunette 2 but a little softer(maybe the evaCup). Plus any ideas on what could be causing the cramps?

(no subject)

Hi, I just got a diva cup and it's my first time getting a menstrual cup. It's a size 2 cup and bought it from someone in my city who was selling them online in bulk, but I feel like I'm more of a size 1 (I'm a virgin). I was wondering whether I might fit the size 2, or whether I should just hang onto it and see if I can trade for a different one since I haven't used it yet. I guess I'd just like to find out whether the size 2 is a big difference from the size 1. Should I just try it anyways?
