 I've been using my new MeLuna cup for 3 days so far and everything has been working out great....but I've noticed that my cervix feels sore and it's difficult to break the suction without hurting myself.


It hasn't leaked once and the fit of the cup itself is perfect (medium), but the suction is way too strong for me.



Could someone recommend an inexpensive brand (preferably in the U.S.) that has a more gentle suction? ~Thanks



P.S. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I'm 18, a new cup user, and a virgin.

Start by looking here: http://community.livejournal.com/menstrual_cups/1285963.html

Don't use price as your guideline. Whether you pay $20 or $50 won't matter 5-10 years from now when it has paid for itself over and over in savings over disposables.

Make sure that you break the seal without pulling first. Just pinch it a little bit above the base, and then pull it out. I tried just pulling it out ONCE, and oh man, never doing that again.

P.S. I use the DivaCup, which they say has a lot of suction compared to a lot of cups.
