 ... another medium green one with ring :D For free!! (though it was accompagnied with a little leaflet saying it has minor faults like shape or colour, i only found it a little squished (but the blue one was a bit squished aswell) but otherwise perfect, going to try it out for sure!). Underneath are some pics, compared to the one i already had, a Small red Fleur with the stem cut in half.

Small red Fleur, Small blue MeLuna Small red Fleur, Small blue MeLuna Small red Fleur, Medium green MeLuna Small red Fleur, Medium green MeLuna Medium green MeLuna, Small blue Meluna 

I found the squishiness to be the same. I think now my collection is taking form. I haven't tried them yet.
I ordered the small blue MeLuna cause the small Fleur fits me perfectly but is a bit too big for my lighter days as my cervix sits really low then aswell. The small MeLuna is the smallest one outthere with her 40mm. I bet the blue one will be what i was looking for, with the same frosty feel, the rings on the base, the squishiness i'm used too...
I'm a happy camper! I never even thought of ordering the ring stem on a cup but now, i can't wait to try it out :)
Thank you MeLuna!!

Your cup collection looks like a candy collection. (-: The colors are so bright!

Gahaha, and i didn't even put the orange Fleur next to it :)

Yeah, my free one said it had imperfections, but I actually couldn't notice anything at all wrong with it! If anything, the one I actually ordered had a patch of the material that was real sorta rough not smooth at all, but oh well. :D

Yeah I have that too, and I can't clean that part. There's a brownish spot there ...
piekepieke on June 30th, 2010 08:23 pm (UTC)
There's a shiny spot on my "extra free one" aswell. But i don't care. It was free :) I now get to try out the ring stem which i couldn't have if i didn't get it.

Did you get a free one with an order to the Co-op, or a direct site order?
saraf3msaraf3m on August 20th, 2010 06:59 am (UTC)
I've ordered through a site in UK, very lovely, and impulse with co-op order (still waiting for that to go out I think?)
piekepieke on August 20th, 2010 08:13 am (UTC)
Co-op? No, i ordered it directly from Meluna.eu

There's a small pen mark indicating the fault - it's generally a slight flaw in the finish or consistency of the material (swirliness/streaks etc). However, as they say, it's stll fully functional, they just can't/don't sell them as 'firsts.'
Mr. Susanh_s_doodles on July 1st, 2010 02:13 am (UTC)
Now that you mention it, there is a black dot on it, and the color does have a bit of a swirl in it! It's hardly noticeable though unless you hold it up to the light. I thought I would hate the purple but I actually really love it. <3

I wanted to add that i had a free pouch with them aswell. With Fleurcup, if u want a pouch u have to order one for 5 euro extra...
And i thought the "small" Fleur was small but u ain't seen small until u've seen the "baby Meluna" :D

Thank you for posting these, I ordered a sm. blue stem meluna yesterday and this is the first picture I have seen of a sm. blue! I hope I get a free one too =)

(yes, i love replying to old posts)
how low is low for you? i mean your cervix :D i'm not sure but i think i've experienced the same now on my very first cycle with a cup (small lunette), it was just perfect for three days but suddenly i couldn't get it in at all! last month my cervix was just 1cm in but i didn't check much this time, inserted it before the bleeding started so it may have made it sit higher? idk but i figured i might need a small meluna in the future, after i make sure it's not just teething troubles... it was a bit surprising to see someone with apparently exactly the same reason for getting one :O
your pics were helpful since fleurcup has the same dimensions as lunette :D

hope it worked fine for this purpose, btw?
piekepieke on August 11th, 2010 07:41 am (UTC)
Low is really low :) It would be about 1 - 1,5 cm in my whole cycle (tip of my index finger in).
The combo SmallFleur-SmallMeluna works perfectly for me. Finally... I haven't used my free MediumMeluna yet as i didn't have the need for it so i'm using it for showing purposes to friends.
I think i'm only able to get the Fleur in cause the mouth of the Fleur is big enough to let my cervix sit inside it. I guess this would be a problem for people with a really heavy flow as it takes up quite some space inside the cup. Though i only have to change my Fleur every 5-6 hours which is fine by me and much better than before. But it is idd way too big for my light days. The mouth of the Meluna is not that much smaller so the cervix sits inside it aswell but the width is much smaller and thus perfect for a small flow.
The only thing about the Meluna that makes me frown is the noise it makes when i C-fold it. It's a loud rubbery noise as if i'm busy squishing a rubber duck or something :D People would defo hear it in a public stall ^^

oh..glad to hear i'm not alone with my superlow cervix :) any tips for insertion btw? were you at least able to use your fleurcup on this sort of days before you got your small meluna?
i think the problem is that it's just too close to my pubic bone, i can't get my cup past it while keeping it folded, my cervix is already there -__-
have you tried anything to make it sit higher during insertion? like masturbation lol...
hm so did you choose meluna bc of its width? i'm thinking of it because of the length, if i do get my cup in it's poking out of me, one time i managed to put it in place, at least two times i just couldn't, it hurt and felt as though it hit a wall -_-
i also didn't need to angle it on my three successful days, this is something i know i should've tried when facing problrms but i don't know how :/

lol i read rubber dick instead of rubber duck XD on my light days i definitely won't need to empty it in public restrooms, the thing is that i'm going off hbc in a few months and i'm not sure how light my light days will be, ie whether i need it at all:/
piekepieke on August 11th, 2010 12:46 pm (UTC)
Yes ofc, i used my Fleur for the whole period without a problem. Just a lot of pushing until it was fully inside me ^^
I've had a couple of days where it wouldn't get that far in though, i guess it's one of the disadvantages of having a low cervix. But i noticed that my cervix goes up just that tad little higher when i start to walk around. So i just shove it in as far as it goes, though the tip would still poke out a bit, then do about 10 strong kegels (and when i say "strong" i mean REALLY STRONG lol) while stepping out of the bathroom and after a few minutes of exhausted muscles, it would be comfortable afterall ^^
I just chose the Meluna bc of the lenght too, it's the shortest one outthere. AND bc it's smaller overall, i'm a sucker for cuteness ^^ Tbh... i don't really NEEEED the small Meluna either, i can go easily with just my Fleur, but having a second cup as a spare is ALWAYS a good reason :p
Serpentserpent_849 on August 11th, 2010 01:30 pm (UTC)
i need to learn to kegel stronger then :D
hm but isn't the meluna easier to insert on these ugh-y days? the 7mm difference means a much smaller part would poke out :D

to make things even more confusing my hymen has altered, it's still there but one part feels just like the tip my cervix, i was shocked when i first noticed :O
Serpentserpent_849 on August 8th, 2011 02:36 pm (UTC)
hi again:)
have you tried out any other cups in the meanwhile? omg i was so confused and all a year ago haha, it was actually all because my small lunette is kinda narrow. i've also changed hbc and then finally went off it and my cervix is sliiightly higher :D i've tried wider cups like the large ladycup (okay-ish inside out) and the medium meluna soft but i realized it's not only the diameter that matters but also the shape, argh i wish the medium meluna was shaped like a fleurcup! (or like the large meluna)
which got me thinking... we seem to be kinda similar so maybe it makes a difference that you use a small fleurcup and i tried a small lunette? they have the same dimensions and seem so similar but i think at some point my meluna and lunette get too narrow for my cervix and maybe the fleurcup would finally be a cup i could have completely inside all the time? :D any cup sticks out like 1cm while sitting on the toilet and probably in some other positions. it doesn't normally bother me but for light days or for expecting my period i've been considering either a small fleurcup or a small soft meluna. the great thing about the meluna is that inside out it should be like 1cm shorter than my small lunette :D but with its shape, i wonder if it'll sit deep enough.
are you still satisfied with your small meluna? have you tried the medium and does it sit deep enough? how are you doing? :D

btw do you still have the stems on your cups and are they completely inside? :O
