broken LadyCup :(

Some of you may remember that about a year ago (I think) LadyCup had a problem with their cups splitting, so they sold their defective batch as "trial" cups very cheaply and only guaranteed one use out of them.  Well, I bought one (size small), but I didn't use it very much because although I liked the smoothness of it for my light days, I had the hardest time removing it.  This cycle I was just getting the hang of it, but then today I noticed a small tear by one of the holes.  :(  I guess it will be back to the small Lunette and the cloth pads next cycle.

I like my small Lunette, but it doesn't have a high enough capacity for my heaviest day, and then on my lighter days I'm sore and there's less lubrication so I want something completely smooth.  Someday when I have a job (I'm a student right now), I want to get Fleurcups in both sizes.

I guess this post doesn't really have a point to it, but I don't have anyone that I can complain to or commiserate with in person.  :)
