Hi, this is my first post although I've been lurking for awhile.  I'm sorry if this has been asked before, I searched and couldn't find an answer...

I have a large lunette and it serves me ok in terms of size and capacity, very little leaking.  I used to get cramps sometimes (I think it was to wide and stiff for me) but that was before I had my third child. This is my first period post-partum and I haven't had any cramps yet so I think I may have streched a bit more, who knows..

The only problem I have with it is the stem, from the beginning I could feel it poking me so I cut it off completely, but since I did I can feel the rough edges it left. I tried to somehow make it smoother with a nail board but it didn't seem to do any good and still, by the second or third day of my period my vagina feels very sore and tender right in the spot were the end of the cup usually sits.
I read here that some people turn the diva inside out so I tried it with my lunette and it feels perfect! i was so happy about it until I read another post saying that turning the lunette inside out stresses the holes and is not recommended. Is this actually true?

I think my option would be the stemless Meluna. Has anyone here used one? How would you say it compares to the large lunette in size, capacity, stiffness, etc?

Thanks for any help, I really appreciate it
